    VGA To Scart Cable

    Hi everyone was just wondering if any techno junkie can help, basically I want to get my laptop screen on my tv, and I'm assuming thats the VGA output. Trouble is I have an age old tv so is there even such a thing as VGA to Scart, and if so, does anyone know where I can find a cheap one please? Thanks

    you might have a 3.5mm video out on the side of your laptop...or s-video out or hdmi out as well... what laptop is it. Also most LCD TVs these days have a monitor input. Some more details on your laptop/TV might help find the best solution for you.

    Edit... just read your tv is old so we'll assume it only has scart not s-video.

    As far as I know the only way to do it is to use something like this from E-bay;

    yes you can definitely have the sound coming out of the headphone jack in your laptop to the tv ... for the picture u want the video out > RCA (Yellow) cable (like a camcorder cable)... (if your laptop has that Video out (it looks like the headphone jack ...same size)... the symbol for it is shown in this pic
