You need a video card with a TV out port. Looking up your machine, your motherboard has no AGP slot, indicating you have shared video memory and no slot to add your own vid card so Dell is correct.

You would need specfic hardware on your computer and your tv to do so. It really depends on what video card your computer has right now, and what inputs your tv has.

To explain it a bit further, most computers have 1 of the (3) following types of outputs in the back. It can be VGA, DVI, or SVIDEO. To see a picture of the connections for refrence, check out this PICTURE

Now lets say you have the S-VIDEO OUTPUT on your computer, then you would need to have an S-VIDEO INPUT on your TV. You would simply get an S-VIDEO cable, hook one end to the PC, the other to the TV.

The same would go for VGA and DVI.

At this point, the best thing to do is this...figure out what type of INPUT you have on your TV at this time. Next look at your computer and see which OUTPUT you have....if they do not match, you would have to buy a video card for the computer that matches the INPUT for your TV. A good place to buy video cards is here: Website


Sorry if this was a bit confusing, like I said it is very specfic to the hardware you have. If you have ANY question at all please feel free to ask further!

    Yes, you would have to disconnect your monitor from the computer. Then you would need a cable like this one to connect your PC to the televison. Make sure your TV has an INPUT for VGA before you buy the cable though!

    Yes, you would be able to do all of that. You just need to add the correct video card. My recommendation to you is to contact Dell one more time and get a recommendation for a card that would work with your model. Either that or take it to a computer shop who could help you even further.

    The bottom line, to achieve this you will need additional hardware (a video card).

    Hope that helps you out!

My computer has not sound when i connect the speaker from back


Do they work if you connect to the front? If they dont it could be a Driver issue, download Drivers from Dell Website and reinstall. If this doesnt solve your probelm then check jack and wires for damage, if sound works from the front jack port then maybe back jack port is damaged.

It looks like your TV does have an analog VGA input. Depending on your video card, you can use a VGA cable to connect your computer to your TV.

Dell pc to tv hook up


Most video cards on computers output progressive scan, and your flat screen tv may be interlaced. This would cause the horizontal hold to keep rolling.

Connect pc to tv


you can connect it to a modern flat panel via the vga port but you won't get 1080p resolution.I would suggest upgrading sound card and go for the fastest network possible for streaming wifi i'd suggest 802.11n (although 802.11b can stream with minimal network traffic).gigabit is ideal for high definition streaming.If you decide to upgrade acer makes a nice small pc the ax1200 perfect size for a nedia center though no wifi has hdmi dvd burner for less than $400 comes with 20"monitor.
