Problem running Dual monitors, please help

Hello,
I am currently using a Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965 laptop with dual monitor support. I am equipped with an ATI Radeon 3100 graphics card. I am having difficulties getting a second image to display on my Viewsonic N1300 using a VGA to S-video/RCA cable. Shown here: http://www.compusa.com/applica...dpNo=4116659&CatId=467 . I am using the RCA port instead of the S-Video. Here is the specs for my TV, http://www.amazon.com/ViewSoni...anel-LCD/dp/B0002CTRIM . As you can see the TV has a native resolution of 640 x 480 and i have set it to this using the CCC software. When I do use this setting at a refresh rate less than 60, I can see the image sliding across the screen from right to left, completely covered in a blue tint, but it is there. The image constantly continues to slide over and over at a very fast rate. Any Tips? By the way I am running windows 7 32 bit with updated CCC and updated hydravision.

Set the refresh rate to the monitor's standard - then what happens?

I cannot find the refresh rate of the monitor online but i have set it to every refresh rate that windows 7 offers, so i am stumped.

Does it support VGA natively? Any other input options? Detected by Windows 7 properly?

it does not have a VGA port and when i use the S video cord on the adapter i get the same results. windows 7 identifies it as a Generic Non-PnP Monitor.

Have you tried searching for drivers for the monitor? A different PC or cable? Updated your laptop's drivers - use the guide in my sig?
