Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

Get Dell Inspiron monitor to show desktop

\015 I connected my Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook with my TV using an S connecting cord. I want to show my photos on the TV monitor. I had the TV on the input of RGB, as I know that is what I selected previously to see my photos. I pushed the FN+F8 key on my Dell to have the photos show. They did not show up on the TV screen. Now I have disconnected the Dell and the TV and I cannot get my desktop to show up on the Dell. What should I select to go back to using my Dell as a computer? What should I have done to see my photos on the TV? I am using my iMac to write about this problem.\015

\015\012To get your picture back on the laptop, press the FN combination again or restart the computer.\015\012

\015\012As for getting your pictures to show on the tv, you just need to first get picture on the tv and then drag the application or picture window into the tv monitor and it will show there, if you play a slideshow it may limit you to a slideshow that will be shown only on the computer monitor.\015\012
