Your HP notebook PC probably has a VGA (aka HD-15) connector. Check page 16 of this PDF to make sure - connector #2 is the VGA connector.

Your Compaq monitor also has a VGA HD-15 connector, so it should plug directly into your laptop's port after unplugging it from the other PC.

You will still need to plug the Compaq monitor's power cable into a wall outlet for power.

If you are going to share this monitor between your notebook and the other PC, you may want to consider purchasing a Keyboard-Video-Mouse switch (known as a "KVM switch") - there are many different models - you will need one with VGA, and whether you need USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse connections depends on what your other PC's keyboard and mouse are.

My hp compaq presario cq50 cannot connect to the internet via modem, this issue began when i installed windows 7

Were you running windows xp and then upgraded or replaced your operating system with Windows seven? If so, then your right - your problem did begin with windows seven.
There is an ethernet adapter driver in Windows xp that is not available in Windows seven. I would suggest going to Hp's website and click on support and then chat services and give them the info on your pc and ask for a link to download the driver you need to connect to the internet. they can assist you with this for free.

Connect tv to computer

Be sure to enable the second screen through the windows display settings. Right click on the desktop background and select personalize (VIsta) or Properties (XP). Click on the settings menu (lower down on Vista, a tab on the right for XP) and look at the monitor setup. After you are connected via cable to the TV, go there, click on the second screen and select "enable this monitor", "extend desktop onto this monitor" or something of the like. Oftentimes it will not do it if you are not already physically plugged in so ensure that you do that first.

A compaq TFT450, can it be used with USB to View?

no USB is not a video cable ever.
i guess you lost the manual, that it?
it tells you what the USB does.
page 2 tells you that is a USB hub, you use it to connect other USB devices, for say pc that has only 1 or 2 USB ports this allows more.
it is not related to VIDEO in any way.
