Cant see why not if you have a VGA (usually blue 15 hole (3x5 rows) connection on the Plasma TV, it should be ok. Connect the VGA cable to your PC and then to the TV, then power both up, Search through you TV Sources till you find VGA or sometimes AUX and you will see your PC booting up as normal.
Also you might want to put sound to the tv too, in which case you'll need a 3.5mm jack lead at one end (into the sound card Green Jack Socket), to what ever the sound input is on your TV, usually the same 3.5mm Jack.
If you want to still use your PC monitor too, you will need a VGA Y splitter, only a couple of quid off ebay, and another VGA cable, about the same price.
Hope that's of use to you.
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output: *Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK ) This will look like a single RCA output plug. Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it). Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
