standard vga or dvi lead which will give you picture but sound via the laptop speakers, you will need anohter cable for the sound

Or can you connect through wireless to your home network? Sony uses DLNA

If you have a Plasma ot LCD TV ensure there is a blue socket on the back marked up as VGA or PC, Is so buy a VGA to VGA cable and also a male to male jack plug lead, try ebay for both of these.
Connect Vga cable to laptop and to back of PC
Connect jack to eiter headphone socket on laptop
and other to the jack next to vga connector on TV
select PC as input on TV and hold down FN button ( function ) on laptop and press one of the Function keys, F1, F2, F3 etc that looks like a comuter next to a screen, usually F5
thats it
