|Newer TV's are not compatible with S cables.. unfortunately that kind of technology is becoming obsolete. |
Now, there are two different ways to do this, with a VGA or an HDMI cable. Just all depends on what connection you have in common with the laptop and the TV. But either way, any option will work if its available.
You don't need special software or anything like that, just go into the display properties and transfer the picture to the TV that best fits what you need to do.
