Well, #1, TVs are not to be used as monitors. They use sometinhg else, like cones to display, than the PC that uses pixels. Another thing would be that the TV might be idling, meaning doind nothing as it may not recognise the PC, meaning, to power save, auto shuts off.

What model of TV do you have....or should I say, what size?

I have a 32" model, and I had to request a new one because of the shut off thing happening to me. LCDs and Plasmas run very hot....just like a PC, if they get too hot, they will shut down to prevent further damage to itself. It's almost like a programmed alarm.

If you keep experiencing the same problems, have them send you one until it quits doing what is happening. But it may be like mentioned before, it may not be correctly 'seeing' or identifying your PC and will go into power saving mode, just like a normal monitor does.

But you should be able to run a computer on your Dell TV without any problems what so ever.
