... you'll need a wire from TV-out port from laptop to (or S-video from laptop to s-video to tv <<never used this) yellow port (similar) on the tv (or yellow scart)

... you may have to make a selection from the tv menu for scart unless you have yellow socket on tv (the other 2 are for sound white+ red)

... from the laptop while in Windows press the Fn (function) key plus a key on the top row of keyboard (should have a screen type symbol on it) they tend to differ between laptops.

... so it's <Fn> <F*> tapping should invoke laptop to tv

... you might also have to add another monitor profile

... right click empty space on desktop click properties> settings (tab) > advanced> color managemnet (tab) "add"

... tv out to yellow on scart worked for me!

... (from scart) wires red+ white to adapter (two sockets into one) to laptop headphone socket for sound!

... you might also have to select vga in your bios

... newer large tv screens now have monitor sockets so the option here is to have male to male monitor cable and just use Fn keys. (tv menu selection "pc")
