    They make several converters for this. Ranging in various prices. There shouldn’t be any problems with this you may just have to configure the video settings on your laptop for this.

    What other ports are available on your laptop and TV? If you can provide a list I should be able to suggest the best option.

    On the laptop, we’re looking for VGA or DVI connections.
    This photo has a VGA port on the right (blue) and a white DVI port on the left: http://bit.ly/eB6Cqk

    Let me know if either of these are available on your laptop.

    For your TV, it may also have component ports, these are three plugs each color coded red, blue and green.
