How do I use my vizio TV as a monitor for my dell Inspiron n5050 (VGA)

Hi, I'm trying to use my Vizio TV as a monitor for my dell Inspiron n5050 using VGA/SVGA video cable. I clicked "detect" in the display section of the control panel and an alternate monitor does not appear. The cord is secure and the TV is on the right setting. What am I doing wrong? Do I need a driver?

Thanks

I think the setting would be extend desktop

you will still have a picture on the laptop but will extend to the vizio like a dual monitor effect
