    Is there a way to connect your laptop to your TV to watch movies. Do you have to have a certain cable? I have a HP computer with Windows Vista.
    Thanks

    sure.. I took an S Video cable and attached it to the computer and TV. I put the tv on input 2 and then Held down the fn key and hit the f4 key to get my computer screen on the tv. I then hooked up the computer speakers from my desktop to my laptop and could hear the tv through those. If you want to get your screen to go back on the computer hit the fn and f4 keys again. Hope this helps anyone who wants to do this.
