You could try a VGA to RCA/Composite cable, but I doubt that would work.. Unfortunately, you laptop does not have a tv or s-video out, so the only other way to do it is with a TVTuner box, like this one:

might be able to find something similar at a local PC/electronics store..

    The reason a VGA to RCA cable probably won't work is because a pc and tv have to completely different signals.

Yes it is, as an external monitor. That model laptop has VGA out (15-pin) so the TV you would be connecting to would have to support VGA in. Most of the new LCDs do and even some older tube types, but most do not.

You can still output to your TV if you get a scan converter basically plugs into VGA and outputs to composite or RCA.

They come in different price ranges and features. Here is a good start for you.

No, I don't work for CompUSA, lol, they just got lucky, Try Newegg or TigerDirect too.

Hope this helps =)

SOURCE: what do I need to connect my dell Inspiron B130 to

Hi. Try buying a VGA-to-HDMI cable/adapter and connect the VGA to the side of your Dell B130 and the HDMI end to the back of your Viera. Press Fn+F8 on your laptop and you should be able to view the display on your TV.

Hope it helps... ^_^

I connected dell ispiron b130 to tv i have sound but no picture


you need to activate the secondary monitor ..To do that go to the display settings ..and you will see 2 monitors numbered 1 and 2...press to identify first ..and it will show you on the screen which monitor it is ..and after that ..select the other in the image by clicking on it ...than select to activate it under...select clone mode if you want to have the same image on both ..or select other option if you want ti as an extension ..
You can activate the secondary vga exit ...from the keyboard...by pressing Fn ..and the key (Fkey ) that shows a monitor on it ..pressing these 2 in sequence will enable the secondary monitor...If non of these will work ..you may consider to reinstall the video driver..In some cases the image on the tv will appear in black and white ..and will only be normal if you install the computer with the tv plugged on ..(I encountered several cases doing that )
Good luck !
