Hi, I have a lenovo laptop with windows 8 and wanted to see if it was possible to connect my smaller tv to it and use two screens.

I have a dynex 24 inch and it would be really awesome if that was possible and what cables would I use?

Any help much appreciated!

Depends on what outputs your laptop has and what inputs your tv has. Common laptop outputs are VGA and HDMI. Less common are miniDisplayPort and DisplayPort. LCD TV's usually have a HDMI input. If both sides have HDMI, then I would go with that. You can find HDMI cables from monoprice.

HDMI cables are digital. It will either work or not.
