Hi,
\015\012\015\012 
\015\012\015\012The answer to your question\015\012is Yes. You can use a VGA to RCA converter and view the output on your TV. I am\015\012assuming that you are using a Inspiron 1200 laptop. Couple of things you may\015\012need to check.
\015\012\015\0121. Toggle display using Fn +\015\012F2 (Hold down the Fn key and press the F2 function key), this will toggle the\015\012display between Laptop, TV, & Laptop + TV .
\015\012\015\0122. Right-click on desktop,\015\012goto display properties, make sure the second display is set to 800x600 or\015\0121024x768, these are the only display resolution supported by analog TV’s
\015\012\015\012 
\015\012\015\012Hope this helps. Please rate\015\012your feedback!
\015\012\015\012Thanks,
