Notebook and S-Video

Specs: Windows XP, 2gb
If I plug a 4 or 7 pin S-video cable into notebook and play (in this case) an avi movie, the video is out of synch, it falls behind the audio - using Windows Media Player. Wanted to connect notebook to Panasonic LCD TV TX-32LZD800A but no matter whether plugged in or not, so long as the S-video connector is plugged into the notebook, the video falls further behind the audio. Plays perfectly if S-video plug is disconnected from notebook. Have not tried a VGA cable - have not got one on hand.

Tried the same avi movie with VLC player and the synch is consistent but the video quality is not as good at WinMP - in fact it is poor. This is a 1956 B&W movie so the quality is not good to start with (nor the audio for that matter).
Quality on the Notebook screen is acceptable
I guess I now have two queries
1. Why is Windows Media Player video/audio out of synch
2. How to tweak VLC player to obtain better representation on TV (this was the 1st time I used this program)
Any suggestions welcome please?
