Yes, FN (bottom left on your keyboard) And the picture of a TV on your F Keys (f1-F12). You also need to verify your resolution is supported by the TV.

as jc98 stated: FN+Fkey

you will have to look at your keyboard to see which one.

you might have to push the combination a few times as it swaps between laptop lcd, laptop lcd + external and external only. this is also the combination used to connect projectors i believe.

when i output in this manner to the television it automatically matches my televisions resolution (1080p) but this might not be true for all televisions. sometimes when i travel the image overhangs the edge of the television and i am not quite sure why. on the two televisions at home there are no such issues.

check and see i suppose.
