NEW E510 with ATI Radeon 256mb X600 - Can't get extra monitor support to work!!! HELP!
I've got a new E510/5150 with the ATI Radeon X600 Hypermemory (256mb version), which has TV-out (S-video), DVI, and VGA. I've got a digital flat panel hooked up to the DVI as my main monitor and a TV connected via S-video as my "secondary" monitor, but when I try to check the "extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" box in Display properties, the screen blinks out for a second but nothing else happens, only the main monitor continues working and the s-video connected TV shows a blank screen. I'm using a Monster Cable brand new S-video cable, so I really don't think it's that, PLEASE PLEASE Help me fix this, this is the only reason I upgraded my video card! THANKS SO MUCH EVERYBODY!
FYI, ATI tech support says call Dell and Dell says you have to pay for this sort of support PLEASE HELP!
Another FYI: I have the latest drivers and the ATI Catalyst Control Center installed (all from ATI)

well, the issue is that when I select the option, it automatically resets itself to the "unchecked" position - so it's never even getting to point of using it on the TV... the refresh rate on my regular monitor is 60 Hz, my TV doesn't have an option cause I can't get the darn thing working!
