Does the laptop have an HDMI port for connection to the TV? Othrewise tell me the model nember of the TV as well as your laptop.
No, it is an older laptop and only has a VGA port.
The laptop is an Emachines M6805, running Windows XP home (with Service Pack 1... I have never been able to install SP 2 without having the computer crash).
The TV is a Sony Bravia.
