      You have the actual notebook and you want us to find out for you??

      Did you even look at your laptop at all before you posted?

      If your TV has a VGA in, you can use that as the Inspiron has VGA out.

      If your TV does not have VGA in, you will have to find a workaround, as the Inspiron 1300 does not have RCA video or S Video out.

      Something like this will work:

        The tv has a scart socket – not sure if that is a VGA or not – im not too knowledgable with the technical language. The inspiron does have a analg VGA port which is a high density DB-15 apparently. I a curious as to what cable i require.

          UNless your TV is VGA compatible

          And many are not, a simple cable is not enough.

          I don’t knwo what you mean by scart – is it the S video – with 4 pins and a flat connector in a round connector? Then you would need something like I pointed you to on the tigerdirect site, a box which would convert the VGA to S Video.
