    you take the cable, plug it into the laptop... then the tricky part... the other end goes into the tv.

    it would help knowing what outputs you have on the laptop if you want real responses...

    DSub-15? DVI? HDMI? Composite? Component? SVideo?

    Our Samsung LCD has hdmi and VGA, we just used a 25' VGA cable for the computer.

    46" of lcd = biggest winamp ever

    I was kidding anyways. We need to get a faster machine in there that will run something better than 98 so we can watch movies from it as well.
