You may need to tell the laptop to output the signal to the lead instead of / or as well as, the laptop screen.

This is usually a simple keypress or keypress combination of the laptop keys.

Thanks john, do you have any idea what the keypress maybe for an toshiba satellite pro or know where i might find out. thanks again

Fn + F5 seems to be one option.

Cheers john, ive done that and chosen T.V, but still no luck. i dont know if i have to do anything else to make the svdideo output start outputting. if you have any ideas they will be very much appreciated

Some Scart leads are one way only rather than two way or might have a switch for input/output.

Are there other AV channels on the TV that you could try?

I just seem to have EXT 1, EXT 2, SVHS2 and EXT3. I get a strange buzzing noise on EXT 1 but nothing on any of the others.
