    Thank you for your input, although I don't know what the F8 thing is about it worked, the video and audio output is to the tv and the laptop screen is blank.

    Thanks again

Assuming that you have Audio already functional, the solution is to set your system to "Clone" rather than "Extend" video. Right click on desktop > properties > settings > click on second monitor > uncheck extend monitor box (below). Click ok, press Fn + F8 to Clone.

    Nice to know that this fixed your issue. The Fn+F8 key combination is used to toggle the display from internal to external display. It has three states 1. On internal LCD only, 2. On both the displays 3. On External only... Pressing the key will toggle the states one after the other.

How torun a flat panel hd lcd tv on a dell 531s

Please check the input ports on the LCD TV and the output ports on the computer's video card. You need to have a proper cable (VGA, HDMI or DVI) to connect your computer with your LCD TV. Later you need to select your TV's input mode.

The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

I want to hook up my laptop to my tv but i dont see where to hook it up on my tv

It all depends what outputs you have on your laptop, and what inputs on the tv.
If your TV is a modern lcd or plasma type then you have a couple of options.
You may have to use a vga cable like this 1
This transfers video only
If you have a HDMI socket on your laptop and tv then this is the best way. Plus it transfers sound also.

No audio output to tv on my dell 1545

That, & most, earphone sockets, simply doesn't have enough "Current" or signal voltage to drive your TV set's audio in Amplifier. You need to get a Pre-Amp, to amplify the signal, up to a level that can be used by the TV. So you need to purchase, or build from a kit, a small stereo pre-amp and insert it between your laptop & TV audio In.
