does your laptop have dvi out? if it does and your tv has an hdmi port you can use this Newegg.com - Link Depot 3.3 FT DVI TO HDMI CABLE Model DVI-1-HDMI - Cables for the video.

If not, then what ports do you have free on your tv, and what video outs do you have on your laptop?

Neoya X2VGA 2 Home

This looks to be promising too. I have thought about that one also connecting my Xbox to my PC monitor. Now I got a tv with all the bells and whistles on it. Can even run my PC to it also. Tec. never ceases to amaze.
