    I have a inspiron b130 with the intel graphics media card in it. It only has a vga out on it. I want to be able to use my vga to rca adapter to plug into the tv , but it will not detect the tv when connected. I was wondering if anyone could help or let me know if this is possible through updates or settings. Thank in advance

    Certain cards have a force detection settings. I would connect everything up and try and get it to work. It's possible you have to enable the secondary monitor in the driver settings..remember as far as the driver goes it's a second monitor NOT a TV

    Most likely you will have to enable the second monitor (tv in this case) int he drivers. If it is an ATI card, it will be in the control panel, if it is an Intel extreme gfx it will be in the advanced options somewhere (i forgot) but I know i just set one up on a newer dell.
