Connect Laptop to TV

To begin with,
I currently own a compaq presario f700 as shown here

and i own this tv as shown here

http://www.mirrorcashback.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/samsung-tv.jpg

the problem is
this laptop only has an s video port, and a vga port
but the tv only having hdmi ports

i want to connect my laptop to my tv, but i cant find a way to do it.
could anyone help please??

There are VGA to HDMI converters but I don’t think there cheap. Doesn’t your tv have any other connectors apart from HDMI ?

well it has a pc port, but then 3 hdmi ports… :frowning:
i have a picture for you
have a look

i dont think its the same model, but it has the same back panel as the one i own

The PC input appears to be VGA. All you should need is an appropriate cable. Actually 2 cables, 1 for audio.

could you elaborate plz :stuck_out_tongue:
what cables, and where exactly can i get these cables?

Pictures of similar devices don’t help at all…

ill go look for the manual, what exactly should i look for…
well i mean it’s the same on my tv as it is on that picture

i just happened to find one like it

[QUOTE=Charmingarmin;2288583]ill go look for the manual, what exactly should i look for…[/quote]Look for the description of the connectors.

well i mean it’s the same on my tv as it is on that picture
It could also be a basic model that may have the connector panel, but the rest needed is missing (or disabled).

If these connectors are also present and documented in the manual of your computer, then you only need a stereo cable with 3.5mm jacks and an ordinary PC monitor cable. Maybe this is described in the manual also.

would this help any?

considering i can’t find it right now, but
it’s pretty much the same thing i could find in the manual.

The connectors of the laptop are clear. It’s the TV now. You need to find out if your TV has working input connectors that fit to the headphones and the VGA connector of your laptop.

It appears a cable like this: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10201&cs_id=1020102&p_id=85&seq=1&format=1#largeimage is what you need. YMMV.
