Default winxp using s-video

I am trying to use an s-video cable to connect my laptop to my tv to watch movies. while the laptop is on i cant get a signal. when I restart the computer I get a signal but after a few seconds it goes back to snow. any ideas? I got it to work with my friends computer that is xp as well but still no dice with mine
