I've been tearing my hair out for days on this one.
I'm running a Gateway M-6755 Notebook VGA out to S-video in (I've tried RGB in on two tv's with the same results) to a television set and I've tried every refresh rate and resolution available to me, the picture is there but it is severely scrambled and the vertical/horizontal holds don't 'hold'.
Same result on two different tv's with two different cords.
My driver is an Intel mobile 965 express chipset, updated the video card today with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100.
It doesn't give me a tv out option, only notebook and monitor. I think the problem lies there. I found some similar problems with the xconfig and tried posting their solutions on mine but it scrambled the laptop monitor screen so badly I had a hard time recovering it.
here is my current xorg.conf;

I'm using ubuntu as installed through wubi, if that helps. And my main desire is a fix similar to THIS; (http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-679457.html)
I need to change my driver/video card so that it has an Option "monitor-TV" "TVOutput" since it doesn't by default. I would greatly appreciate any help!
