How can I connect my laptop to my TV?

Both my laptop(Compaq Persario V2000) and my TV (Daewoo) have S-Video Input and Outputs. When i plugged the S-Video in and pressed Fn+F4 I got a picture on my TV, but it was black and white and it was jumping. I looked all over the internet for an answer but i didn't find one. Please help me.
