Hey guys,


I have a dv9000 laptop from hp. I have a philips 32" LCD TV. It supports HDMI cords. Is it possible to have a cord form my laptop to connect to my tv to get my laptop screen onto my television?

does your laptop have an hdmi port? if not you'd need to get an adapter (either for the TV or the laptop) to convert from VGA to HDMI...assuming you've got a VGA port on your laptop....or does your laptop have an SVideo port (a lot of new ones do)...if so does your TV have an SVideo port?

VGA Ports: 1

S-Video Connectors: 1 - TV Out

you've got VGA and Svideo....so either of those solutions i mentioned would work...either way i believe you lose the HDMI advantage (i.e. any hi-def) so either would give the same results.....if you go with the VGA to HDMI option you would need to get a standard VGA cable and a VGA to HDMI adapter (Like these) for the svideo option you just need to get an svideo cable....with either option you'd also need to get an audio cable if you want your laptop sound to go through the tv speakers
