A few ways.

One is a special TV out that came with the computer.

If not installed then you need either a gizmo to convert PC video to TV

Or a new video adapter that can produce TV out signals.

Otherwise you need a TV that already has a PC input.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

"My tv has pc in but I could not get computer screen to

If it's a 15 pinhole port the same as a monitor port...

You need a male VGA (pins) to probably a male VGA (on the TV) video cable, from the VGA port on the laptop to the PC port on the computer, then you need to select a video source on the TV other than the TV tuner itself - video1, video 2, PC, whatever works.
........

The display from the laptop to the TV may have to be enabled like so as well:

That's for TV out, but the same applies
(The cable must be connected before you attempt to enable the display)

You need to set second display as the TV.
