Laptop to TV Hookup:

How you hookup a laptop to a TV depends on which types of cable connections exist on both the TV and the laptop. Some laptops have a VGA connector and if your TV also has a VGA input, then you can use a VGA cable to connect. If your TV does not have a VGA input connector, then you can use a converter which has standard yellow video and white audio RCA cable connections. Some laptops have HDMI and if your TV has HDMI inputs then use HDMI cable hookup.
