Switching between Composite and Monitor

Hi all,

I have the following problem:

I have a PC with Windows 2000 that has an ASUS V6800 graphics card (32M)
I need to connect to this card both a Monitor and a TV
The computer is in the control room and the TV in the auditorium.
When I work and set things I need to use the monitor but when I present movies I need to use the TV.
Connecting the PC to the TV I use sound and video RCA cables

The problem is that If I boot up the PC while the monitor is pluged in I can not switch to the TV and when I boot the PC without the monitor plugged in I can't connect it later and switch to it !

I thought their should be a keyboard combiantion to switch modes but couldn't find one.

I am looking for a solution using the current hardware or one using new hardware with a proven working configuration.

Temporarily I put the PC in the auditorium and use the monitor but the studends are damaging the PC.
