Question about Televison & Video
I want to hook up the TV to my Lenovo laptop. Am not sure which cable to buy or where to hook up.
There is no way to hook the TV to the laptop. You can hook the laptop to the TV but not the other way around. It is done with a VGA monitor cord. The same one that you connect to your regular monitor. Your TV will have a plug labeled VGA.

I looked up the specs on your computer and it appears that it does not have any AV or HDMI ports. It does however have a VGA or standard monitor port. Some TVs have this port as well. If your TV supports this then all you need is to hook up a standard monitor cable between your laptop and the TV then treat the TV as you would a projector. It is very likely that your laptop will notice the TV immediately and project your screen onto it. If not you can switch screens using on of the function keys across the top of your keyboard. Example FN + F5 on some models.

Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is
capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer
TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other
adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a
small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video
connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV
Things You'll Need

Connect one end
of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has

into any USB port.

laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV
on the other.
cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio
output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split
the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of
the audio cables into your TV.
Turn on the
laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop
screen, then select "Properties."
"Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI
displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option,
depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option
in any version.
Click on the

"Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click
"OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If
not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to
the external screen.
