    I did update the bios and the ATI drivers to the last available version from DELL home page, but my laptop still does not detect the external display as an additional display device.

    I have worked out a way to make it work.
    On the desktop, right
    click and go to propertys. Once in there go to "settings" and then use
    the drop down list that has the monitor type in it.
    Click on the 2nd one down so make ON Monitor 2. Once thats done, click "Extend Windows Desktop To This Monitor". Click OK.
    Now the TV have a display, but only Black and White and no sound.
    only good to watch movies on as it is not clear (movies are perfect)
    mouse and text are slightly blured. Just drag your media player over
    to the 2nd display (TV) and make full screen, now watch your movie. What about presentenshans, color picture and sound??? PLEASE HELP!!!!

You have to press the Blue (Fn ) button on the bottom row of keys at the same time as (F8) function key at the top on Dell Latitdue laptops. You can toggle back & forth between laptop monitor only, TV monitor only or both monitors on at the same time. No need to install extra drivers unless something is broken.

It depends on the types of sockets you have on your PC - I guess SCART is the most common on the older TV's, but on newer LCD ones you will also find VGA inputs and HDMI.
I hope this helps you. If not, let me know what inputs you have on the back of your telly.

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?

When you connect the VGA cable to the TV you will need to hit the FN button + F5 on your keyboard, that will change the dispalys from internal to external. if you hit FN+F5 again you can have both the laptop and the TV screen on.

I have a Dell latitude D600 laptop

The D600 has no TV out option, the only Output for visual display is the monitor VGA port.

You would need a converter for the normal VGA to DVI Cable.

Connecting my laptop to my Samsung DNie 29' Tv

Are you connecting the S-Video directly into the video output port of your laptop? S-Video 7pin? Video output port 7 pin too?

Is there an adapter for the video output port, for your laptop?

Booting up

First , I would visulally check the fans and heat sink fins... see if they are Dusty,clean them if needed... then try booting to an external video source, like a Desktop Monitor.. Connect it to your laptops serial port then press the Function Key and see if your video card is ok...
