Default [Help]-PC to TV?..

I know about the VGA cable and the S-Video cable, but I don't have either connections in my PC..So Which adaptor would I need to buy?..I have a Intel Celeron CPU... The only port I have-besides the ones conecting to the monitor and for power-is the USB port...

There are couple of things you could try.
One would be to upgarde your graphics card, to something with S-Video out. This would probably be your best investment because you will be able to improve your computers performance.

Another option is to buy a cable that will have a VGA end and S-Video end.
Something like this

I have no idea about the company listed above, nor have I ever used that product. It is just an example.

it depends on your budget and your preferences for what the card would be used for.

edit: also it would be helpful if you could find out whether that motherboard has AGP or PCI-E. i'm guessing AGP but can't be sure so you'll have to find out before you can buy a gfx card
