I have a dell inspiron (600m) andi also have a dell flat screen television. i used to be able to connect my laptop and tv, so the tv would become a flatscreen. i would go to VGA and my laptop would appear....


I assume you would switch the TV's source to VGA. Is that correct?

Connect it the same way you did before, with the VGA cable. Then hit Fn + F8 on your keyboard, to switch the signal from your laptop screen to the VGA cable. Then select VGA as your source on your TV as you did before.

If that does not work, please post and tell us what type of television you have.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.

S Video cable


you need to toggle the display on your laptop. be sure that when you connect the tv or external monitor the laptop should be turned off. to toggle the display kindly press Fn followed by F8. for old tv's you need to have an S-video cable. for LCD monitors, either VGA or DVI cable will help.

i hope this info helps you.

Try going to Control Panel on your computer and going under the display option. Under Settings you will find two monitor options. On the display number two, try selecting that to extend your windows by checking the appropriate box.
