I have HP Pavilion dv6233 laptop with Vista Home Premium SP1 on it. I used to watch video on my TV screen (10 years old Sony TV set) by connecting my laptop through S cable to the TV. One day I watched video and forgot to plug in my laptop to power outlet. When laptop battery run out computer shut off and since than when I connect laptop to TV I can not see anything on TV monitor. Looks like my computer recognized TV monitor – its resolution automatically changed. But I still can not see anything on the TV screen. I try to twig it through Windows Mobility Center. No luck. Any ideas? Please help.

With laptop, you can only see one display, your laptop, or the TV. Check your manual to see what key combination you have to use to switch between outputs.

No with my laptop I used to see both laptop and TV screens, though there is an option when you can watch external monitor only. I tried key combination Fn+F4 which suppose to switch m,onitors - did not work.
