If it's too old for an HDMI port, it doesn't have a DisplayPort either. It probably just has VGA which would connect to the VGA port on the TV, assuming there's one. Otherwise the alternatives get more expensive.

I have never tried it but I would imagine that would work from a laptop VGA output to a TV HDMI input. If it did, it would only work for video not audio because VGA has no audio line, you would need to use another cable from your laptop headphone socket to a suitable input socket on the TV to get sound out of the TV also.
