Connecting Laptop to a TV?

I'm trying to connect my laptop to my TV. I've never done this before. Anyway, I only have access to Red/White/Yellow connections on my TV. The Labtop is has a 7-pin Video port in the back. I guess I would need some kinda 7-PIN S Video to RYW Connection wire? Would a wire like this work? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009O4ZVFW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1PSXSSP23WICQ Also, Do I need to anything special to make the connection work? And where would the sound be coming from? Any help would be appreciated.

    And why would I need to use that one exactly? I'm not trying to argue, I want to understand. And the one you linked only seems to an adaptor, what wire would I need to make the connection complete to the computer if I used that adaptor?

  • Ant May 05, 2013

    Okay, If I buy that Adapter can I use a regular S-video and a regular RCA cables to connect my laptop to my TV? Or do they have to bundled into one wire?

    I also have a 7-Pin connection on my Switcher, Can I with an 7-Pin S video cable from the laptop to the switcher's S video? And how about something like this for sound?http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0032JA...

The TV inputs are as follows
Red and white RCA connectors is for left and right stereo audio
Yellow RCA connector is for composite video.
You need an adapter to convert 15pin video to RCA audio and composite video
This WEB site has this adapter.

SOURCE: connecting PC to TV

Most tv's are not compatible in this matter. They were made to be a tv, and not a computer monitor. Some of the newer tv's are compatible. If they have a vga port then they are compatible, but may not support or have the resolution expected. The vga to s-video cables were designed mainly for the use of the newer computers with vga ports to older flat panel monitors with s-video ports, at the time that vga was first coming out. This cable is on the verge of obsolete. So, I don't believe that you're going to be able to hook the two together, and get the outcome you want.

The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.

You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter

SOURCE: No audio when connecting Aspire 5315-2326 to TV.

Use a cable out of the headphone jack with an adapter to the red and white (left and right) audio jacks of your TV.

Connecting a pc to a kp43t75


if you have s-video out on your laptop you can plug it in that way, or you can TRY a VGA to RCA cable, i've found these hardly ever work correctly, but they're relatively cheap compared to a new laptop lol. it looks like the only inputs on that TV are S-Video and component, which means you're pretty limited.

Check your laptop with the same VGA cord on some projector or a monitor. If it works there, then there is a problem with your TV's VGA switching circuit. If it does not work, then there is problem with either the VGA cord or laptop's VGA port. To rule out the possibility VGA cord , replace it with new one. Please give the feedback for this so that further diagnosis can be done, if you are comfortable with the TV's electronics.
