    This is probably related to drivers. I have located a driver on the DriverGuide site for the S3 Virge GX2 that includes tv-output drivers. I have no idea if these are official drivers from the manufacturer, so take note of the download disclaimer on the site.

    This post in a newsgroup indicates a possible solution of using a DOS command to switch to TV-out.

    Both of these links are for S3 Virge GX2 card, if you have a different card search google, google groups and the DriverGuide site to try to locate drivers that support tv-out.

    Just to add one thing to what Tony said, make sure that the entire chain from computer to TV is S-video. If it goes through a VCR e.g. that doesn't have S-video, then you won't get a picture.
