S Video

I have a laptop and a TV both have S Video port. If I buy a S Video cable, will I be able use my TV as my computer monitor? If not, what other options do I have to accomplish this?

You should be able to, check you have the most up-to-date drivers and utilities for your card (- just make sure that the S-Video on the Graphics card is an output and the TV is an input very occasionally you'll find the port is desgined to go in a different direction to the one you want).

The quality of the image is unlikely to reach that of a dedicated VGA monitor though.

Hello Chaz_P,
MAS is correct. It should work but will not look great. Depends on what you want to use it for.
