What kind of input is on the TV? Is it VGA also, or are you using an adapter?

Is the TV input selector set to VGA?

Check that. ^

An HDMI cable will give you a better picture, so even if you get it working on the VGA it would be worth changing it.

Why do we keep getting these? You can't use both the onboard card and the dedicated video card at the same time except in some instances and even then you need to tell it in the bios. Both cables should be coming from your dedicated card. You'll need an adapter. Now I see online that some models only came with one connection. If that's the case you'll most likely need to upgrade your video card.

I've never used S video and DVI. That works well?

I've never been impressed with S-Video, but it looks like his card has different options.
