Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook ?

Dell Vostro 1000 will not recognise television

\015 The Dell Vostro 1000 comes with a VGA connection only. I wish to playback films etc through a Panasonic Viera television with an S Video connection. I have purchased a VGA to S Video conversion cable but the laptop refuses to recognise the attached television (tapping F8 simply gets a No external display attached message). I have also tried changing the Display Settings in the Control Panel but again the laptop does not recognise that an external display is attached. Any ideas gratefully received.\015

Answers :

You're right, RescueTechLA, but I think most Dell laptops use FN+F8.
Are you sure it's "F8" only? Usually most laptops use the FN+F5 to change video to external display.

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0). At any rate this MB is on a Dell XPS 600 unit, which has died and I have a Raid 0 Array in there as my Data Drive. My question is, what chipset does this unit use, so I can find a compatible MB to replace it with. I'd like to keep my RAID 0 Array and I'm fairly sure if I go with a different chipset, the RAID 0 Array won't get reconstructed
