This document applies to HP and Compaq desktop computers with TV compatible videoconnectors using Windows 98, Me, and XP.
This document explains how to connect and set up a television (TV) or a second monitor as a seconddisplay. Using the secondary video connection on the graphics adapter, you can connect a TV (S-Video,RCA) or another monitor (DVI, HDMI) to your computer.If you added a video card and are using the video connectors on the card, see the documentation thatcame with the video card before using this document.
Not all HP and Compaq computers ship with a secondary video connector. If your computer does not have a second video connector, install a graphics adapter with a video connector or buy special video signal processing equipment before using a TV as a monitor.
Connecting a TV or second monitor to the computer 
To connect a second display to the computer and configure the computer for your viewing environment,complete the following steps:Position the monitor and television.1.Identify the type of cables you need.2.Connect the cables.3.Configure the display settings.4.
Position the monitor and television
Place the monitor and television in their respective locations, depending on how you want to usethe displays:
Environment Placement
Classroom Position the computer monitor on a desk so you can view both displays andthe audience. Place the television where any member of the audience caneasily view it.PresentationWork desktop Place the computer monitor and television side by side. Allow a little moreviewing distance between the two displays and the viewer's eyes.Home computingdesktop
Identify the type of cables you need
The type of video cable you need depends on your TV and monitor.Select one TV cable and one monitor cable:
Video Outconnector/cableUsewithConnector color Description
Video (composite) TV Yellow The composite video signal combines white(luminance) and color (chrominance) videoinformation onto a single line (wire).This cable is the most common video formatof the National Television Systems Committee(NTSC).S-Video TV Black The S-Video signal separates the white(luminance) and color (chrominance) signalcomponents and transmits the componentsseparately using multiple lines (wires).Separate luminance and color signals providea higher vertical resolution than compositevideo devices.S-Video equipment was originally designed for high-end television production, but is nowavailable to the consumer market. S-Video isalso known as Y/C video.VGA Monitor Blue (Video Graphics Array) Analog computegraphics standard that supports a maximumresolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

A TVs resolution is roughly half the quality of a monitor that is set at 640 x480. Image quality can appear worse when using higher display resolutionsbecause higher resolutions bring out the lower resolution of standard TV.This is a limitation of the TV standard.
Verify that the second display and the graphics adapter have the same type of videoconnectors. A matching video connector type must be on the both the TV and thecomputer before you can use these steps.
Figure 1: Video connectors
1 - Composite video/TV-Out2 - S-Video Out3 - Standard VGA monitor 
For a TV, use either an S-Video or standard composite (also known as RCAcables) cable that matches the TV in connector. You can use an S-Video-to-composite adapter when the video card only has an S-Video connector.If the television does not have a composite or S-Video connection and hasonly a coaxial or antenna connector, use an adapter that connectsS-Video/composite to the coaxial connector. These are readily available frommost local electronics supply stores at minimal cost.Coaxial video is another type of cable or connection that typically carries acomposite video signal. This connection is mainly used by local cable andsatellite television companies to deliver their signals. Most graphics adaptersdo not have a coaxial-style out connector because they send out their ownTV signal.For a monitor, use the VGA connector.2.
Connect the cables
Use the following steps to connect both displays to the computer:Connect the TV or second monitor to the computer. Select the first available connectionfrom the following list, depending on the television and computer in connections:
Connector Installation
S-Video Connect an S-Video cable to the S-Video out connector on back of thecomputer and the S-Video in connector on the back of the television.CompositevideoConnect a composite video cable to the composite video out connector on back of the computer and the composite video in connector on theback of the television.Second monitor If you are using a second monitor instead of a TV, connect the additionalmonitor cable to the extra VGA or DVI out connector on back of thecomputer and the VGA or DVI in connector on the back of the monitor.
1.If you want to use the speakers on a TV for audio, use one of the following methods:A Y-adapter cable that connects a mini-jack connector (the connector thatplugs into the computer) to two RCA-style stereo connectors (the connectorson a stereo TV).Use the audio from the computer, if your current audio cables do not connectto the TV.2.Turn on the TV or second monitor. Do not turn on the computer.3.Change the input source setting to match the incoming signal connection (usuallyLine-1, Video-1 or S-Video). Press the TV remote control input button, if using a TV.
This step is important. If a TV is not on and changed to the proper videosource, the video card cannot detect the TV.
Configure the display settings
To configure Windows for the extra display, use one of the following sections depending on howyou want to use the TV:Classroom and presentation environmentsor Desktop environment (extended Windows XP desktop space)

Classroom and presentation environments
Use the following steps to show what is happening on the computer to an audience:Turn on the computer. Wait until the Windows desktop opens before continuing.The second display might show the computer screen as the computer starts,depending on the video card.1.If the same image of the Windows desktop displays on both the second displayand the monitor, move the mouse pointer to see if the cursor moves both insidethe monitor and the second display.If the mouse pointer cursor moves in both displays at the same time,you do not have to continue. The video card automatically uses apresentation environment when it detects the second display.However, you might still want to continue to adjust the video imageand see if your video card can reduce flickering, and increasesharpness, and other quality settings for a TV signal.If the mouse pointer moves only in one display, continue using thesesteps to setup up the presentation environment.
If the Windows desktop never displays on the monitor, disconnect thesecond display from the computer and reconnect it again
restarting the computer and opening Windows. If you have a TV, thismust be done on the monitor because a TV does not show enoughdetail, making it difficult to finish the rest of these steps.
2.Right-click anywhere on an open area of the Windows desktop and click

If you are using a TV, you can change the display resolution for thecomputer as low as possible to help the image quality on the TV.Icons and other items display larger and can be seen more easily onthe TV if using a lower resolution, such as 640 by 480 pixels or 800by 600 pixels. Click
if you change the resolution setting.
4.Click the
button.5.This step depends on the options that the video card provides. Click through theadvanced video card display properties screens and look for a display featurethat copies the image from the computer onto both displays.The following table shows video cards that are common to HP and Compaqcomputers, how to find dual display windows from Advanced Display properties,and how to use their display copying features:
