    Any s-video cables will work. The extra pins on the laptop aren't used when using an s-video cable.

    You need a 7-pin to 4-pin converter cable. Try Best Buy, Newegg, Microcenter or any place (probably on the web) that sells cables and adapters. (It shouldn't be expensive - there's nothing in it but 2 connectors and wire.)

    Just a simple 4-pin S-video cable is all you need.

    The port that has the 3 extra pins is there for other uses, but it still functions as a normal S-Video port.
