also depends on what output you have in your laptop as well.

mine has an HDMI output so i could do hdmi-hdmi.

i just ran into this problem with an older notebook that only has VGA out
one thing i found out during my search was that VGA was never designed to be used with RCA, s-video, DVI, HDMI, or any other TV input
so dont expect much in terms of image clarity

dont buy a VGA - s-video cable as it will not work
this is what i bought

works ok, and gets the job done
