Question about Computers & Internet
BIOS beeps like that are an indicator of a hardware fault. In this case, it's telling you there is no monitor connected. You shouldn't have any problems using your laptop this way (I had a similar setup with a Toshiba for about a year). Note that if you reinstall Windows or your video driver, the HDMI output may not function right away which could leave you stuck in the dark, literally. Otherwise, you should be fine.

SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue
What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed. If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time. The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution. the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)
You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.
To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything). You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.
If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.
I hope this helps someone.

The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.
You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter

uninstall any energy management software provided by dell and then check.if the issue is not resolved then the issue is with the converter board as it is heating up.

you need a different type of cable to connect to your tv.a s-video will fit but not work.can't remember the name but it has to have more pins.besides that port is for projectors and cannot be used for anything else.you need a converter box like the one in the link ::::: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=laptops+s-video+cords&FORM=BIFD#focal=a85da1a40c404788d7e32f0bf01eab05&furl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cvs.k12.mi.us%2Ftiz%2Fimages%2Fsvid-cables.jpg
unless you got a big tv with a very good picture it isn't worth it.and a good graphics card in the comp.most tvs are fuzzy and unreadable.i've did it enough to know

for HDMI, I guess you just connect it with HDMI cable to your LCD TV, and use the FN+F5 or F6 to switch display from laptop's LCD to external. I think it should be the same way as using projector.

8 Beep Codes means its a Display failure. It could be a problem with the Motherboard or the LCD display itself.
Turn off the system. Press and hold down the 'D' key and press the power button once, do not release the D key you should see a set of colors on your screen.
If you do and the colors are fine then there is nothing wrong with the LCD display and the problem lies in the Graphics controller on the Motherboard.
Please call Dell Technical Support for appropriate part replacement.
