If you frequently download movies using the Internet, you may enjoy watching them on the 17.3-inch screen of your Dell Inspiron 1750 notebook. However, while the Inspiron 1750 has a large screen for a notebook, the screen is smaller than most current televisions. The Inspiron 1750 has an output port that you can use to display video on an external display; use this port to connect the notebook to your television and enjoy movies on a large screen.

Tips and warnings

  • Some televisions do not have VGA video inputs. However, adaptors exist to convert a signal from a VGA cable to other types of video connections, such as component and HDMI. Purchase the appropriate adaptor for the video input connection available on your television.
  • If the text displayed by your computer is too small to read while it is connected to your television, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution" to lower the display resolution and increase the size of the text.
