use the combination of Fn + F7 to switch between display between the laptop screen and TV screen after you select the input type in TV and most important thing is that you have to select the correct resolution from the laptop if you can not do that then you will not be able to see the display in the TV.You can watch the video below to have some idead this is general video fro DELL laptops.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
