Hey everyone. I'm in a little bit of a rush here so I'll do my best to make this brief.

Yesterday the my Dell Latitude D630's backlight failed, rendering the laptop practically unusable by itself. I want to route my laptop's video output to my TV with a VGA cable as a temporary fix, but I'm afraid I have zero idea how to do this. Might anyone be able to enlighten me?

I'm posting this on a friend's computer so I'm unable to post the contents of my xorg.conf or any other relative information at this time. At home I'll be able to fulfill any requests for information that one might need to help me.

Thanks a lot everybody. Peace.
