    depends on inputs on your tv.
    - vga to vga
    - dvi to hdmi
    - svideo to svideo

    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
