Question about Computers & Internet
Many guys seem to have this problem. On your laptop you seem to have a VGA connector output (a 15 pin socket 2 rows of 7+8)
you'll need to use this VGA port instead. This is a practical solution if your flatscreen TV has a VGA port included - a standard VGA cable coupled with an audio cable (see above) will be sufficient. You may even be able to view HD content this way.
Otherwise you'll need an expensive VGA to TV Converter (about $130) which is not worth it.

Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.
Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.
However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

First of all your TV should support both HDMI and VGA.
If it does lets start with HDMI as you will get audio through the HDMI cable.
Connect the HDMI cable to the TV and set the source on the TV to HDMI using your remote control, connect the other end to the laptop, hold down Fn and hit F5 to toggle between screens.
See if that helps and let me know how you get on.

Interfaces 1 x Display / video - VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) , 1 x Network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45 , 1 x Microphone - Input - Mini-phone 3.5 mm , 1 x Headphones - Output - Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm , 3 x Hi-Speed USB - 4 pin USB Type A
The above interfaces are in your laptop. There is no S-cable or HDMI interface.
If your TV have VGA port you can connect your TV to the VGA port in laptop. This will alow you to convert the TV as monitor.

The price difference in the cables are what type of metal wire that is in it. One might have copper or even gold plated and the lower price one might have some low end metal. I have not seen any difference. Yes, all you have to do is plug it in and Windows 7 will recognize your TV. You might want to go into the Control Panel and open Sounds and make sure you have the audio turned on for your HDMI connection. Your laptop screen and the TV will be displaying the same.
