Re: tv- laptop connect
If you're laptop has a VGA port, then it is compatible to VGA devices. This is the general rule with just about everything VGA, whether it's a TV or laptop, if there's a VGA port then it's VGA compatible. Keep in mind that most TVs are not made to be computer monitors, so you may not get the resolution clarity you are expecting. Also, some VGA compatible TVs that can achieve the clarity need drivers in order to work properly. If you plug it in to find that the you don't have a good picture, search the manufacturer's site to see if the TV requires drivers. You can also do a Google search and read some of the forums, they can be very useful.

If you need to get sound from your TV, you should have a sound input socket in your TV. If you have that you can connect an audio cable from your sound sound socket to your TV.
The second option is that your laptop and your TV should have HDMI ports. If its there, you can use an HDMI cable(instead of VGA cable)to connect the two. With HDMI cable, you will get both video and audio through that single cable.
Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer
or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of
the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the
computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI
card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner
card supports component video.
Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you
want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you
have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the
DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your
computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV.
If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the
"Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the
computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end
of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your
computer in Step 2).
Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer
monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the
screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television
viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the
contents of the TV on your computer.

Youre laptop would have to have a video card that has a TV-out port... And for that you would have to run a S-Video cable from the TV-out port of your laptop to the S-Video port on your TV... I assume your TV has a S-Video port?
Every laptop has at least a VGA (computer video connection) and s-video cable port. A VGA cable is preferred if you want to be able to read text on your LCD TV. Check to make sure that your LCD TV has a VGA connector. It's a port that accepts a 15-pin connection so it's pretty easy to spot if it's there. It's just like a computer monitor cable if that helps. Should be able to find it at any local retail store that carries computers. VGA or RGB cable.
