Be sure both devices are set to either NTSC or PAL.

Strange, can't find a G570 with s-video listed anywhere.

That does seem a likely answer.  Also some s-vhs cables are very poorly shielded which often causes impedence mismatches & if the laptop has a 7-pin s-video connection the standard 4-pin wiring may not be supported.

Hi,
What format is the video your playing I usually only see this when it's  still in a DVD format. ntfs or pal
Make it the same as what your original medium format is.
I don't see this if it is avi or flash WMV
This is a DVD vob ie mpeg2 on Gspot note it's in PAL
 DVD Vob pal on Gspotto check drop it onto Gspot

Try first to connect your S-Video out from PC to a TV with SCART using a simple adapter connector and check if you get any image on TV.
