Function Key F5 Key To S-Video Link Not Working

The first time I used the F5 function key on my Toshiba Satellite Notebook for S-Video link to my TV, the connection worked fine. Now it won't link. Nothing has changed in my configuration since the first time. Scratching my head on this one. Tested the S-Video cord on my wife's vista OS laptop and worked fine. In fact, it was automatic!

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance...

Yeah - check and see if your video card drivers were updated recently...

And if they were then roll them back to the previous version....

Thanks John your suggestion worked. However, when I rolled back it degraded my resolution, even after I raised it to maximum resolution. Which drivers would help?

I have a Toshiba Satellite and can get drivers from the site. Should I just update from there?
