hi guys
today i tried to connect my ibm think pad laptop to my sony crt bulky tv through s video cable
this is the first time i connect my laptop to tv
first when i connected them together through s vido cable(4 pin), the image on my desktop showed up on the tv screen. i saw my computer icon and everything i have on my laptop screen.
but later on, i went to display options and click "extend my window desktop to this monitor"
just out of curiosity.
since then nothing has showed up on my tv screen. i tired to undo it by unchecking "extend my window desktop to this monitor" but it failed .just black screen on my tv
i even tried Fn+F7, which makes display exchange between laptop screen and any other third monitor(tv) it didnt work . just blaccccccccck.
any opinion on that?
how can i undo this so i can see every image on my laptop desktop on tv screen
pleas help
thanks

    Are you sure that you are on the correct channel? Using the [fn]+[f7] (which varies by computers, I think mine is on F6) should get you going. It could also be a bad cable?
    Decide what to be and go be it.
