As the computer only has a VGA video output, you a need a TV with a VGA input then you connect the TV as a monitor. Does your TV have a VGA input.

Hopefully your W3653 has been updated over the years. In stock form, it came with 2 x 512MB RAM & Intel onboard graphics. If it hasn't upgraded, I suggest you install the max amount of RAM (2 x 1GB) & a PCI-e graphics card with an HDMI port. Or better yet, consider getting a more modern system.

EDIT: this should be your motherboard:

"my tv only has an HDMI port"

Then do as I suggested in response #2 & install a graphics card with HDMI port.

If you haven't upgraded the RAM, here's a possibility:

AllComponents 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 667 - $26

And you might wanna consider upgrading the power supply as well because the stock eMachines units (usually Bestec) suck.
