Question about Dell Latitude E6500 Laptop
1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method
out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just
about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make
sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two
types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops
and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin
S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

The setting for the resolution of the tv is set to a value that the tv doesn't support. Open the Display properties and change it to 800x600, this will work for sure. Than raise it one step at a time till it breaks.

Have you tried another monitor on the VGA output? If that still doesnt work may need to set up in CONTROL PANEL>DISPLAY>SETTINGS>DISPLAY- should show another monitor fool around with that and see if you can get it to work, if so then try your tv, But ive never seen a tv with a VGA input? Maybe its me? Good luck JLS
