Depends on what laptop you have and what tv you have,Some laptops have a Svideo out which can be connected to most tvs and other laptops have a VGA out which can be connected to a HDtv which has a Vga in,

one of these will do you, its a 15 pin to scart, your laptop should have a 15 connection

That's it working. You now have to either set the TV as the primary monitor (control panel > display properties > settings), or drag a window over to the TV. By default, Windows uses the second attached monitor or TV to extend the desktop rather than duplicating or replacing it.

I'll try that if it doesn't confoos me.:-\

you need to set it up with dual monitor as you have the picture on laptop and tv heres a video on how to do it expertvillage.com/vid…htm

I think you need your laptop to have 'TV out' specification, otherwise nothing will come up on the telly. Can anyone else cofirm this?
