you can use the "window key" + "p" to launch the menu that gives options to choose how you want to split the monitors. you can then choose Projector only. then your laptop screen should turn off.

What type of cord would I use to connect my laptop to my TV? And what TV option? *TV is a Insignia 32" HD TV 720p*
*Laptop is a Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5303*

If the TV has a VGA input, you could use a VGA cable. If the Laptop has an HDMI out, you could use HDMI.

It looks like the Dell Studio 1558 does have HDMI and VGA outputs. You'll definitely want to choose HDMI if it's available.

Also, if you need more help connecting your laptop to your TV, check out this guide.
