    Ok, sounds like a really un-nice problem.

    So, how do you try to switch to the TV? You have the option in your display properties, but does the machine *recognize* the TV? You have also the key combination FN+F5 to change the display, did you already tried it?

    And regarding your display drivers (which vga do you have? nvidia or ati?)

    You can take a look here to find the latest working drivers for mobile platforms:

    Good luck buddy

    I am pretty sure there is some problem with TV settings. Please be sure the S-Video port on TV is enabled properly.

    Of course I believe your notebook is preinstalled properly and you can use FN+F5 key combination to switch to external display or TV.

    Don’t know what is happened but I would recommend checking the graphic driver properties -> advanced settings.

    Sometimes the TV device must be enabled firstly.

    But I do these things already, but still don't work.
    I try reinstalling the drivers too.

    At the end I can just say follow: it must work. Either try to obtain new S-Video cable or try to test it with other, newer TV. I am pretty sure you make something wrong with settings and it has nothing to do with drivers especially if notebook has “factory settings”.
