Question about Dell Latitude C400 Notebook
I connected my dell latitude c640 laptop to a tv to watch a movie. The wallpaper appeared on the television but the icons and the rest of the applications do not appear. What I need to do to solve this problem, please help. My laptop has 7 female SVideo and I use a cable with 4 pin. Do you think it has something to do with this? Thank you very much
No what is happening is your laptop is seeing the TV as a secondary display and all your icons are on the primary (laptop) display. While pushing the Fn key, press the key that will redirect output from your laptop screen to the external screen. There should be a picture of a monitor in blue above one of the F keys or something. This will redirect the output to the TV as a primary display. And if you could kindly rate this solution with a fixya rating, I'd appreciate it :c) Thanks!
