Default s-video out

My friend is wondering if there is any way to get your t.v to act as a monitor without buying a new video card becuase it doesn't have the jack. Now i'm sure there isn't but correct me if I am wrong =/.

you mentioned it - if you have an S-Video out port you can buy (some graphics cards come with them) a little converter that converts S-Video to rca.
