Hi,
The cell inspiron you are using has a s-video port , for conneting external dispaly.
If your lg TV has and s-video port , you can connect the laptop to the tv susing an s-video cable.

Disk read error when i turn my dell mini 10 on


This usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Inspiron 4150, won't boot up


I would try creating a start-up disk on either CD or some other portable media and see if the machine will boot to that. Before you decide to use the computer for a door stop Take it to a Dell Service center to have it checked. It could be a simple switch has gone bad or something more serious, you never know. There is no real need to lose the data on the computer. You can always remove the hard drive and put it in an external box to get the data that way. Just remember to tell the service shop you take the computer to that you do not want the drive erased, Deleted or formatted when repaired.

This fault usually means the hard disk has failed or the disk controller, in most cases it is the hard disk that has failed.
Check the BIOS settings and see if the hard disk is detected, if not it is probably a faulty hard disk.
When you boot up the computer does the hard disk LED light flash and can you hear the hard disk spin up. If the hard disk is making a clicking noise then it is definitely faulty.
To test the hard disk another way, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this as an external hard drive and you can't open the folders and files, this confirms it as faulty.
To get the computer operational again, you need a new hard drive, Install Windows on the new hard drive with the computer's device drivers and your programs.
