You probably need to connect them with a cable.

That's the best thing I can come up with given no useful information, and not being Dell tech support.

you probably didn't set up the multiple monitor nonsense in windows: right click on desktop -> properties -> settings. if you don't see 2 screens there then it's not set up right. Poke around in the properties window till you figure it out; it's pretty easy, done it a million times; i just never store that information in my brain areas

This also isn't "Programming"....

I'll assume you're a Windows user, correct me if not.

Connect the cable, switch your TV on and select the correct scart channel, then reboot your computer like this.

Right-click on your desktop and click Properties, then select the Settings tab. If all went well, your TV should show as a second monitor, simply select it and tick the "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" checkbox.

If no dice, see if your laptop has a hotkey for switching displays (usually hold the FN key and press one of the number keys - it should have a picture of a monitor in blue).

Hope it helps.

EDIT: Beaten to it, yet again
