Just got another computer. Windows XP Prof/XP3, and cannot connect my TV as alternate display.

Using Latitude D620, had, Inspirion (?), and it worked fine.

Reloaded complete XP OS as when I bought the computer it had Vista (and I can't stand Vista), got a reinstall CD from Dell, reloaded all drivers (I think) and have spent the last week reinstalling my software.

How (or can), I get the TV to act as a monitor.

Realize this is quite lengthy, but wanted to give as much info as possible.

FWIW: http://ask-leo.com/can_i_use_my_tv_as_a_second_monitor.html

Since you haven't given any info at all about the TV, this is the best I can do.

By downloading a chipset, I was able to get windows to recognize the second monitor. Does not display on tv but I think I can work it from here on out.

Thanks for all the help!!
