You need to set your Display Adapter Driver for Dual Display,if it supports it. Right click desktop\Settings\Advanced\Adapter you should have dual monitors showing in it some place, check around

i have tried this but it didnt do anything. the tv was still displaying no signal

i was wondering if i am using the correct lead/s or do i need to change any other settings?

Does your TV not have a VGA input ?

Sorry - I have just looked at your specification and no you haven't. Looking at other options for you.

If this is what you are using click here

Do you not just need to set your TV to RGB or PC Input ?

Just another suggestion -You may need to switch over to an external monitor on your laptop. Some computers have a function key (mine is Fn Key + F5) but consult your manual for the correct combination. Usually listed under external monitor in the index. Hope this helps.
