Dell Inspiron 9300 VGA output to 46" Sony LCD problems
I have hooked the 9300 VGA and 3.5mm audio out to the TV VGA and 3.5mm audio in.
Can get the screen saver to come on the TV as monitor 2 but not anything else.
Video card is ATI Radeon Mobility X300 which I is set for dual monitor support.

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.

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.
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 http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp/t1034931646
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.
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.
1. Get a VGA cable (male-male) and connect to your TV and your laptop
2. Select your TV's source as PC (check ur TV manual)
3. From your laptop, select video output to external monitor by clicking on the Fn key and the F8 key at the same time
