Your TV doesn't have video output on either HDMI or Composite video. (There are a few TVs that do have a video out but often that is only available for some input/output combinations. You would need to check the manual but the PC input is usually not available for the video output.)
Unless your TV has a component (Red/Green/Blue) video connector, you are out of luck for connecting it using the VGA output. Honestly, it's more trouble than it's worth, and VGA to TV adapters are very expensive. A much easier solution would be to get a video card that has a composite or S-Video output and use that instead. A lot of video cards manufactured in the last 5-10 years already have S-Video outputs on them, so it's possible your video card already has it. There's a picture of the connector on this page:
Even if your TV doesn't have an S-Video input, don't worry - you can get an S-Video to Composite adapter for under $10.
In order to display PC video on a TV the PC must have a TV-OUT function and interface, or you need a VGA to TV converter box. If your PC has TV-OUT functionality, your user manual will tell you this. If you have, Google "Display PC on TV" and you should find some good articles on how to connect the PC to the TV, and how to change the settings on the PC. NB. even if your PC supports TV-OUT, you may still need to buy a converter cable (but not a box). If no TV-OUT functionality, E-Bay lists some converter boxes from about £15. NB. the much cheaper cables only work on PCs with TV-OUT functionality.
The first thing you need to do is after you connect the cables.. hold down the fn key and press f4. this should bring the screen on the tv. make sure your tv is in the AV mode. if not try with a vga cable.
However if it still does not show up then probably the display drivers are corrupted. reinstall the drivers from the recovery manager > advance options > hardware driver installation.
you can get s-video to scart connections;and if youve no scart you can connect s-video to phono....thats ur red,yellow n white audio / video plugs.yellow=video...white/red=left/right audio.
if you download a service manual it shows the pinout for s-video connections making it able to connect phono's.you only need the yellow and either red or white cos pc only outputs mono to tv.
there are also wireless systems you can get though never tried them.
you could also connect to another monitor,just plug the monitor into the back of pc(ext)only go into on place one way so no prob there.if no picture on ext monitor u need to switch screens
(alt+f 4)usually.press together once switches to ext mon,press together again enables both screens,and again returns to pc.
Yes, there are converters that can take the VGA terminal on your laptop and convert them to RCA or S-Video. As for the black and whit, try using a different cable, otherwise the jack is bad, and you would have to open the case to fix it.
