    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.

Most laptops have 3 video-display options:

Hold down the blue 'FN' key on your keyboard, and look at the BLUE labels on/above the 12 'F' keys. One of those Function-keys can be used to "toggle" through the above 3 display modes.

I want to connect my dell inspiron 1525 to my lcd hd ready tv but have no idea how to? Does anyone have any advice?


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 am trying to hook up my Dell inspiron 1520 to my viewsonic n2750w tv. Is there an easy way to do this?


Yes there is... You are going to need a VGA cable and an 1/8 audio cable (for sound)

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1520/en/om_en/pdf/UX8623D.pdf - On page 29 it shows a picture of the right side of your computer. You will hook the VGA cable to the VGA port (Number 8 on the diagram).
The on your tv you will hook it up to the vga port as well. Page 7 of the following document shows a pictures of the back of your tv. You will hook it up to "L" on the diagram. Be careful to not bend the pins in the connector. http://www.viewsonic.com.au/support/manuals/files/LCd%20TV/N2750w%20User%20Guide%20English.pdf
Switch your tv over to the PC input by clicking the "Input" button. Then make sure your PC is sending a signal, you might have to hit the function key to switch the view.

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.

LCD TV and VGA output


The resolution and refresh rates have to match exactly to the TV for it to work correctly with the computer.

The newer computers are using much faster refresh rates by default. Their default resolution is also different.

Consult the manual for the TV and see if the computer's external monitor output can be set to match to what the TV exactly requires. Both the refresh rate and resolution are critical.
