If your TV has a VGA connector, as many LCD TVs do, then it is straightforward just to connect a VGA monitor cable between the two. On the Dell the VGA connector is on the left hand side. You can then switch the display between TV, Dell screen or both with function key.

If TV doesn't have a VGA then you would need to find some sort of adaptor, but I am not personaly aware of one.

Found an adaptor but all depends on the input connectors on your TV.

From what I know of the Inspiron I do not think it has a TV-Out function in the graphics capability, so in my view no it's not suitable.

It would be the vga connector that fits to the laptop anyway, the S-video would go in the TV.
