✔ Best Answer
Check your video properties, you may need to activate or set up your external VGA output if the adapter uses the VGA output. If other port is used you may need to install drivers and set up preferences.
** Contact the tech support of the manufacturer of the adapter you purchased.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

READ the installation directions for the adapter !

If it requires drivers.....
- it probably came with a CD, and the drivers are on that
- usually you DO NOT plug in the device until AFTER you have installed the software for it
- DO NOT install drivers when Found New Hardware for the adapter pops up, unless the instructions tell you to do that ! .

If the TV has both a S-video port and a yellow female RCA jack, you connect from the adapter to one or the other, NOT both..

Yellow = composite video - that must go to a yellow female RCA jack on the TV.
If your TV does NOT have a yellow female RCA jack, you CANNOT use your adapter with the TV - as in, you can't connect that yellow jack on the adapter to any other color of female RCA jack on the TV.

Red and White = stereo Audio - that must go to the red and white female RCA jacks on the TV.
The Red and White audio jacks are always a pair beside each other - the Yellow jack is often next to them - if all three are next to each other, selecting the video source coming from the computer selects the audio that goes along with the video. .

You must use your remote or a button on the front of the TV to select a video input on the TV other than the TV tuner - e.g. Video 1, Video 2, S-Video, etc

NOTE that composite video (or S-Video) does NOT look as good on the TV as the display on the laptop monitor does.

Most of, if not ALL, the connectors on the TV are for inputs. (Some TVs have audio out ports.)
