How to connect your laptop to your TV

Tired of squinting over your laptop? There are several ways to turn a big-screen TV into your new computer monitor and enjoy video games, web content, and photos like never before.

Step 1: Connect with S-Video

First, connect a video cable. For PC users, an easy option is an S-Video cable. Most PCs and digital televisions are equipped with an S-Video port.
