you should have a (vga) tv-out socket usually blue with about 16 pins in it,if you have not which is unusual then refer to sony for the laptops specs and location of tv-out socket. The Nvidia graphics card should have one I believe the Gforce go card is the one for your system unless upgraded and is advertised to support this function.

you do it:
The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type

Right click on your desktop and select display properties.click on the Settings tab, then on Identify - when another monitor is recognized, you can enable it in that window.

Assuming that you have hooked the cables right, you need to press the key combination Fn + F? to activate the external video output of the Toshiba laptop. The "?" would depend on the exact model of your Toshiba. Additionally, there would be a blue lettered indicator on one of the top keys of keyboard indicating a monitor.
Incidentally, it might be worth mentioning that most TV can not operate on too high a setting of the Resolution of your Display Properties and therefore would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution be lowered down when used in conjunction with an external display device such as a monitor. At other times, the Screen refresh Rates would need to be lowered down also.
