Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
No matter how I play with the audio settings I can not get the Dell audio to come from the TV when I connect via HDMI cable. The screen is fine - just no audio. The audio continues to play from the computer. Any ideas?
Simple fix : Click start and type sound and goto "change sound card settings"-> goto HDMI sound (tv icon) and right click it -> select "Set as default" It will work. Just restart the application from which you are trying to play the audio. It will work 1000%

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV
On a dell laptop, the key combo FN F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time. Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time. If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed. Check the power settings in the control panel.

you need a different type of cable to connect to your tv.a s-video will fit but not work.can't remember the name but it has to have more pins.besides that port is for projectors and cannot be used for anything else.you need a converter box like the one in the link ::::: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=laptops+s-video+cords&FORM=BIFD#focal=a85da1a40c404788d7e32f0bf01eab05&furl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cvs.k12.mi.us%2Ftiz%2Fimages%2Fsvid-cables.jpg
unless you got a big tv with a very good picture it isn't worth it.and a good graphics card in the comp.most tvs are fuzzy and unreadable.i've did it enough to know

If you can give me some more detail, I might be able to help. Are you trying to connect your computer to your TV? If that is the case, most graphic cards can be set for dual output, but in most cases this has to be enabled through the software that came with your graphics card or by going to the properties screen on your computer monitor. There are several ways to do it. Hope this helps

HDMI is only used for Video output and not for sound, you will have to use your laptop audio out (has a pic of headphones), you are able to get headphone jack to phono (white / Red) cable to connect to TV or surround sound system or your laptop speakers.
