The vga (15 pin) connection is the correct cable to use. But, the VGA port is not activated when you turn on the laptop. You need to activate the "External Monitor" by using the correct key sequence. Dell's have a CRT/LCD function key ( it should be F8) that toggles between the different modes. You press F8 + Fn (function key on the bottom left) at the same time. ou also need to change the TV to accept the correct external device. You will find that the TV does not get a sound feed fro the VGA cable. you will need to run a second cable from the speaker/headphone jack to the external sound input port on the TV.

Good Luck
