    You just need an DVI to HDMI cable for example: http://www.amazon.com/DVI-HDMI-Cable-6ft-Male-Male/dp/B0002CZHN6

    I’ve used a similar DVI to HDMI adapter to do the exact same thing in the past, so I would expect it to work.

    Note that your TV will need HDMI INPUT in order to input a video signal.

    Make sure to consult the user manual for both the laptop and the TV for instructions on outputting/inputting a video signal.
