Hi guys, can anyone help me here....

I am able to connect my laptop to TV using
S-Video and audio through RCA cables. This works great. But when someone is watching programs on TV (from laptop) I want to continue using laptop as we normally do. I mean whatever else I am doing on laptop should not come on TV except s-video input that I have given to TV. I have seen this at my friends place where Winamp/ Real Player or Windows media player's output is given to TV but he continues to surf internet and it doesn't appear on TV. Problem is he dont know how it's done, I mean he is not aware if there is any setting in TV or laptop :-(

If any of you guys knows about it, it would be great help to watch laptop videos on TV but at the same time continue using laptop in normal way without disturbing someone who is watching TV

Go to the display properties. Right click on the desktop.

Go to Properties.

Go to Settings.

You should see the numbers 1 and 2 super-imposed on screen icons.

Number 1 should be primary.

Click on number 2.

Then put a check on the dialog box that reads "Extend my windows desktop on this monitor".
