    what inputs does your tv have?

    I don't know what the inputs are called, but it has a scart, and the three ones with different colours, and then another one that looks similar to the fitting a keyboard would go into (circular with places for pins)
    sorry i dont know the right names!
    its a sony TV
    thanks

    Take a picture of the back of the tv and post it here.

    do u have the same type of inputs/outputs on the laptop to the tv?
    the circular one you mentioned is an s-video cable
    if you have one on your tv and one on yor laptop then thats what u need
    u will also need sound cabe so i guess rca cables too

    this is my laptop spec
    vaio.sony.co.uk/vie…ies

    it was a cheap one i got a year ago so i guess i cant connect this model

    if your laptop has a vga port then look around for a cable with vga to RCA or vga to s-video they do exist just hard to get hold of, my laptop can be connected to my tv by vga to composite HD or vga to vga
