I have a problem here I have an older laptop. Its a IBM Think Pad T22. It has a S3 Graphics Savage/ IX 1014 Video Card I have the latest driver Download from IBM's Web site. And S3 really dont do driver support so they dont have drivers on their site because they are generic. This laptop has a DVD player so I wanna hook it up to TV like I do with my home PC and see my video on that screen so I can have a portible DVD player. It has an S-Video out port and I have the proper cabling to hook it into PC and TV. I just cant seem to get it to work not easy like my NVIDIA card at home. I looked on IBM's web site they have an article on it i followed it but its NOT for win xp and the option is not there in windows XP to turn on S-Video out or "Clone" the screen to s-video out.
Thats My prob can anyone help (= thanks
P.S. My avatar wont load on this site either ist under 6kb and meets the pixel requirements what gives ?

Hi Guys.... saw a topic on laptops.. I'm kinda stuck.. I have a buddies laptop and the screen has a vertical blue line in it that won't go away.. I'm pretty sure its not software related.. its there as soon as the screen turns on ....
It has onboard graphics.. It shares the system memory.. Any idea what it might be and what I might have to replace on it? when it comes to hardware I'm somewhat weak..
Thompsg, as Cheetah said the only way to solve the problem is to change the LCD (which is very expensive). From the description i guess that the monitor has burned pixels, in brief the lcd monitos works as follows : every pixel has three associated transistors one for red, one for blue and one for green if any of them fails then the pixel takes the remaining color, if for example the blue and green transistors fail the pixel will be red. I hope i helped and that the laptop is on warranty or else your buddie will have to pay a lot in order to fix it.
