I'm trying to find out if there is a 15 pin from a Laptop to a Analog TV. There must be a cable made to do this without make massive software changes to your Laptop.

If your tv doesn't have a vga port you can not connect your laptop to it. Period.

It is not a matter of software on the laptop. It already has the option of using a projector or going to a tv via its vga port.

The laptop and tv must have a common video connector.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Most Laptops have S-Video or Video Out Connection, you can take this into a Scart Adaptor at the TV end..

TV's work a 50hz. Monitors work at 60hz

Pardon...but you can connect your laptop to your analog TV. If you have a 7 pin S Video out on your laptop and a 4 pin S Video in on your analog TV you can can buy a cable at the link below. It has 7 pin to 4 pin S Video connect and a micro audio plug that goes from your laptop to 2 rca plug to convert the audio from your laptop to your analog TV...once I got this cable it took about 60 seconds to view my laptop on my TV screen. Once you have the cables hooked up ...press the input button on your TV remote to select "Video 1 or Video 2 to view your computer screen. it's all done with one cable...come in lengths from 6'-20'

A lot of people will tell you it can't be done without an s-video connection or a vga connection on your tv because the is no actual cable to convert the source from your laptop to an rca output. However there is a converter that can be purchased such as this one: http://sewelldirect.com/pc-to-tv-ad... that will allow you to do this, though it tethers your computer to the tv. They also have a wireless one where you connect a transmitter to your laptop and a receiver to your tv for a hefty chunk of money more.
