Question about Philips Computers & Internet
Unless the TV has a monitor feature, there would be no place to plug in the VGA cable with its DB-15 connector. Your laptop obviously has a female DB-15 socket for its VGA output to which you have connected the male DB-15 plug on one end of the VGA cable. The other end of the VGA cable would then be plugged into a VGA-capable monitor (usually VGA monitors would come with the VGA cable permanently attached). Another VGA-capable device would be a projector which usually has several alternative inputs including the female DB-15 connector for VGA input and which likely would be the most likely situation for use of your cable with its two male DB-15s.
There are several possible PC to TV connections. The latest PC to TV connection is HDMI which is a digital interface carrying both video and audio in the one cable. Another digital interface is DVI which came before HDMI and there are converters to go between the two interfaces. Older methods are analog using VGA (can use scan converter box to change to S-Video), S-Video and Composite Video. All the analog interfaces require the audio to be carried separately. Getting audio from the PC usually requires an audio cable with a miniature stero phone jack on one end and a pair of RCA phono plugs on the other for the left and right audio inputs on the TV. Newer PCs such as the one I am using (Gateway NV5915h) have HDMI which only requires a single HDMI cable to go from the PC to a HDMI port on the TV (no audio cable would be required). You can do a Google search on the term "PC TO TV CONNECTION" for more information on this topic or just click on the following link.

Your tv should have a blue vga port on the back. If it doesnt have one then you cannot connect it.
