    Make and model of TV?
    How are you connecting to the TV? VGA? HDMI?

    I have never done component cables. Hopefully someone will come along and help you out.
    I would start by looking for the manual for your computers make and model and the manual for your TV as well.

    That makes absolutely no sense. We use the HDMI port on my wifes laptop and hook it up to our LCD TV all the time. Unless there is something I don't know about plasmas you should be able to use the HDMI if your computer has a DVI or HDMI port on it. They make DVI to HDMI cables if that is all you got. I wouldn't know the first thing about hooking up component cables to a pc unless you actually have component outputs on the back of it.

    You manual also says this.
    What makes you think the component cables will be any different?

    I don't see anything in your system specs that would support hooking your computer to your Plasma TV. Which of course is not recommended because of Screen Burn in problems that Plasma TV's have.
