Default laptop to hd-ready tv

alright, i've been all over internet, searching for the answer to my problem. I have a laptop, hp compaq nx7010, and a hd-r tv. So the first thing a thought of when i bought the tv was Eureka! i can hook this baby up with my laptop and see my movies there! all is good..or not. i already had an s-video cable so with that i hooked it up, and it worked, except for one little thing. flicker, not 'noise'-looking flicker but something else...something ive never seen before, looked like a bunch of white frames went from the lower part of the screen to the top.

has anyone else had that problem or just know the answer please just tell me what to do.. thanks in advance

What is the model of the TV/monitor you are connecting it to (hd-r)? And you currently have it connected via S-Video? Does your laptop have VGA or DVI out, and does your TV support it as well. If so, i would hook it up that way. S-video, will work, but the PQ is not very good and will not support the higher HD resolutions. You should not have that flicker problem however. What is your current resolution/RR settings? And your TV info would help a bunch.
