You need to have compatable interfaces between the devices. Since you don't...there isn't much to suggest.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

So, I've tried hdmi from laptop to rca on analog tv. and that did'nt work. So I tried vga from laptop to rca on analog tv and that did'nt work. Getting tried of buying cables without knowing what's IS going to work. Does anyone know for sure what WILL work and what I need. I don't have cable or satellite tv so I have one of those conversion boxes. So the only hook ups I have is either the rca on the conversion box or the rca or s video on the tv, and an hdmi or the vga on the laptop!

Like it was said, you're out of luck with your current setup.
