The easiest thing to do would be to install a new video card with a HDMI output. What model of Dell do you have?

Last, easy on the all caps. Same as yelling. Not cool.

you can always use a VGA if your TV has a VGA input and a 3.5mm to rca

And you can get adapters to go from DVI to HDMI if your PC has DVI output.

Both christiangordon and cadder are correct. However, because HDMI carries both video and audio and is better suited for HD playback, that is why my original recommendation was made. It really depends on your current video solution and the model of Dell you are using.

That is an old system. Does your model have a stand alone video card or is it integrated (the video) into the motherboard?

That being said, your options for either are VERY limited given the age of the system. I am hoping you have one of the 4600 series with an AGP slot. If so, we can find a solution. If you have the integrated solution, you will be stuck with what you have (in terms of changing video adapters).

Usually a brown board connector on the motherboard. Closest slot to the CPU itself.
