Okay so here's my problem

I have a old Sony VAIO that I am trying to connect to an older TV.
The Vaio has a vga cable with the rectangular shape and lots of pinholes, it doesnt have S video or HDMI or anything else. The model name is PCG-7T1L.
And my TV has the (rca) cable with the 3 prongs, like you would connect a gamecube or playstation with. I am trying to figure out how to connect the two but the online guides are extremely confusing. Do I need some sort of converter box too? Can you help me look for the right one on Amazon or something?

Thanks for all your help you guys are so amazing!!

Sounds like you need a VGA to phono cable/adaptor.

Something like this:

You can use one if you want, but you don't need to.

Okay it actually turns out that my TV has a S Video input. Do you think that that is more effective? Do I need a converter box for that one
