hdmi is not a connection for laptops/desktops.
if your laptop has a vga connection and your tv has( i will chek both in a minute) then you can use a standard vga lead

sorry i will correct myself
you can in theory i think conect to a hdmi lead but is not advisable, nor is it widely supported by laptops.
if your manual says not to and you do then it could effect you warranty and garantee

My laptop has a vga output but the tv doesnt can i not use a vga-hdmi lead???
But also why should you not connect to the hdmi socket it is an lcd tv and the laptop is lcd?

Is ok have found a converter i would need and they not cheap so might as well buy a cheap pc monitor and hook it up to that...
