Want to connect laptop to tv
The specifications on your computer suggest that it has an S-Video port, which can be used to connect it to a TV; provided the tv has an S-Video input port on it.
Additionally, this will put a picture on your TV, but sound will have to come from somewhere as well. Most laptops have sound and speakers built in, but if you are watching TV, you will never be happy with that sound.
I have run a speaker connection from the outputs on the laptop to the outputs on the TV with success. When I did this, I used the video/sound cable that came with my video camera. It had a stereo male plug at one end that fit into the laptop and the other had two RCA plugs, one yellow and one red.
Typically, the yellow is for video, and red and white are for sound. In this case, I used the yellow for sound and it worked out fine.
All this information is based on the premise that your TV will support this connection. If not, you may be able to connect to a VCR (remember those things?) and run it that way.
