I want to use the laptop as a tv monitor, I have a video adapter and video capturing software, but the screen options do not support tv/monitor mode. Is there any way to change this?

Their is a button located on the 1-9 keys, it looks like a little monitor. Maybe 2 monitors.
Hold down your FN key (Function) and press that button, that will turn on the svga connector. Also if you press it again it should keep both monitors on, and again will switch back to only the LCD.

SOURCE: Laptop monitor problem
sounds like the inverter has gone out or backlight of the laptop has gone out.
you would normally see a logo or something when you removed the TV from it, you can boot dual lcd with laptop on and TV. so i doubt something is turned off.
when hitting FN and F5 usually take about 3 sec to refresh the screen. but looks like the LCD screen on the laptop has failed and need to be replaced or the Backlight or Inverter has to be replaced.

The fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

If your Dell has a S-video output it could connect to a TV or a video device, which allows for a TV option.

Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is
capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer
TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other
adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a
small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video
connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV
