Hi

Ok your laptop has VGA connector.(I dont see S-video or DVI on the data sheet for your laptop).

Do you see one of these on the laptop or tv?

Hi

Is there any of those connections on the tv?

Then you should get a VGA cable and plug it into your TV. If your TV does not have the VGA connector and has got a DVI connector then get a VGA to DVI connector.

After you made the connection you should press Fn and F5(Differs on some laptops, looks like a tv) to toggle modes.
