    Check the the output and the resolution. You may have to enable the svideo output somehow.

    This WILL look like shit. 480 is the max for svideo ...

    find the Fn key.


    it is normally a color (orange or blue, etc)

    then go from there. it should be pretty self-explanatory. Some laptops simply say LCD/CRT, others have pictures that look like monitors
