Use an s video cable or a vga cable to attach your laptop to your tv. Then switch your tv to the proper input, (AV). Now you must make sure that your display settings are correct. Go to the control panel, to access the display, in xp it's under appearance and themes. Once you open the display properties, click on the settings tab. You will see a depiction of your monitor indicated by a #1 and a shaded box with a #2 in it. Click on the #2 box, then right click, in the pop up box click attatch. Now click apply at the bottom of the window and close. The background of your desktop should be on your tv now. To put images onto you tv, drag them all the way to the right of your computers display and they will appear on your tv. You are basically using your tv as a second monitor.
