What inputs does your TV have? If your TV has VGA in, then you just need a cable. If not, a adapter could be used for conversion to S-video or composite. But the quality may be poor.
One example: http://sewelldirect.com/pc-to-tv.asp You would also need to run a audio cable to the TV. Probably from the headphone jack. (1/8" stereo phone plug to RCA stereo adapter cable)
That laptop appears to have a NVIDIA GeForce 8200M video card with only VGA output.
And welcome to our forums.
thanks for the welcome! all my tvs are old (i've got a 27" that i cant even lift it's so big, have to roll it, lol). and this laptop is getting pretty old too. i think i may just hold off until i get a new laptop next month. any recomendations on a cheap laptop that has the tv-out capability?
