Default Weird PC to TV

sup people.

Recently bought a PC to TV kit that comes with a scart socked, s-video cable & TV out cable. Tried for a while to even get so much as a picture on the TV from the pc.. finally i figured that out but now the problem is that it lasts only 10 seconds or so on the TV:

I have an ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 built in graphics card. So, I right click on the desktop, go to properties, settings, Advanced, displays. I change to TV and then click "apply" the monitor goes blank for a couple of seconds while the screen is shown on the tv, then the monitor comes back to normal and the TV loses the image of the PC. why would this happen?

Uhm, in my last attempt to run the PC as the primary monitor, I ran Component cables out of the 's' video adapter.

You can go into your settings in the advanced menu, run two displays, but, I don't know why specifically the t.v. is losing the image from your pc.
