Before I begin, I know this isn't in the right spot in the forums, but I didn't see a category that fixed my issue. Also, I know this questions as probably been asked a million times, but I haven't found a solution after and hour of Google searches.
So, I have an old Dell Latidude D610 with a fresh Widnows XP install and I currently have the external VGA port hooked up to my Dynex LED-LCD TV.
I would like to display the desktop on my TV with the laptop lid closed. Every time I close the lid the picture on the tv goes black.
I already changed the option of when closing the do nothing in the power properties for both running on the battery and plugged in.
Is what I'm asking possible? I saw a post in a yahoo forum asking a very similar question and some one had answered that it wasn't but that was 5 years ago.
Any luck would be greatly appreciated. If you have anything, please feel free to respond here, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
