Dell Latitude. You have to press the Blue (Fn ) button on the bottom row of keys at the same time as (F8) function key at the top on Dell Latitdue laptops. You can toggle back & forth between laptop monitor only, TV monitor only or both monitors on at the same time. No need to install extra drivers unless something is broken. There are more neat blue function keys that you should read up on. There are a lot more features that come in handy with those.

you can download it from here: http://ati.amd.com/products/hydravision/index.html
Hope this helps, if so please rank my answer accordingly please.

Superscan tv


Since you didn't give the model SuperScan TV, I am going to speculate that your TV has composite video input only; like the 19TVD3S that I know. If your laptop has a VGA port, you will need a VGA to composite video converter. See http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10114&cs_id=1011407&p_id=4724&seq=1&format=2 . Other stores have similar items. You can't use a VGA to composite video cable; these cables are for connecting to projectors that read the computer's RGB signal.

Other converters are available for VGA to component video. If your laptop has an HDMI output, then a HDMI to component video converter would be a good idea. (A few rare computers came with TV out; then you just need the correct adapter for the port to composite or component video.)
Next you may need to enable the external video output in your BIOS. The port can be disabled for power-saving. In that case, look at the splash screen as your computer boots up. It will tell you (in a brief blink) if you need to press Esc, Del, F1, F2 or another key to access the BIOS. Press the key repeatedly after turning on the computer (after shutting down); if you miss the timing, turn off the computer and try again. I've missed the timing several times.
Once the port is active, make sure that the TV is on and set to the video input. Then turn on the computer. If you have Windows, you will have to choose the screen to use for your display. For most newer versions of Windows, right click on a portion of the desktop (somewhere with no icons or running programs). Select Screen Resolution or a similar line. Then you can select using the monitors as duplicate monitors, extended monitors or Monitor 1 or Monitor 2 only.
I hope this helps.

(If your TV has newer inputs, use the VGA port if available. The HDMI port for many TVs do not always interpret a computer HDMI signal correctly.)

Connecting laptop VGA port to HDMI port on a TV
VGA to HDMI converter is required to connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI input. The VGA signal does not have an audio component. You need to connect an audio cable from the audio/headphone port on your laptop to the audio connector on your TV. There are HDMI converters with Audio input so you do not need to connect an audio cable to the TV. The audio is connected to the HDMI converter and then passes the audio with the video data to the HDMI cable to HDMI port on the TV. Check out these WEB site for these HDMI converters. http://www.aten.com/products/productItem.php?model_no=vc180 http://www.sybausa.com/productInfo.php?iid=1174 http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/Audio-VGA-to-HDMI-Video-Converter-Box-HD-HDTV1080P-p164633.htm

Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

I've connected by Dell Latitude D620 VGA to my HDMI LCD TV but there nothing displaying on the TV


Try lowering screen resolution on TV. There is a chance your video card can't handle HD like 1080 dpi or higher. Plus make sure TV input is set to VGA.

What cable do I need to connect latitude D600 to a hdtv ?


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


When you connect the VGA cable to the TV you will need to hit the FN button + F5 on your keyboard, that will change the dispalys from internal to external. if you hit FN+F5 again you can have both the laptop and the TV screen on.

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


you need to have the same connections on both my laptop has svideo or vga connector, some have Hdmi which is the newest, but the tv and laptop have to bot have the same connectors, it may be a dvi, or any that I mentioned, then you need a cable for your video, and another for your audio, both the audio and video cables are run to the tv, the only one that has both audio and video is the HDMI which tv's from the last hear or 2 usually do have. Then depending which input the laptop is using which it will tell you where the connection for the tv is, you set it to that input and that turns your tv into a giant monitor
