    I'm just wondering if there is a way to hook up a note book to a T.V. so that you can play a DVD through it.

    Welcome to TSG!

    Yes, if the notebook has a S-Video port or HDMI port it supports connecting a TV. Some video adapters has a TV out function VGA port, this would require a VGA to S-Video adapter. Note that this adapter will only work if the video card supports it, it will not convert a VGA signal to S-Video.
    The Laptop User Guide should have a section on how to connect to a TV if that is supported.

    Some TV's may have a VGA Input that let's you use them as a monitor, so you can connect a PC without having to have a TV out feature. THe TV's user guide would have info on this.
