If your laptop has a vga port and the tv has one also,connect these with a vga cable then right click on the laptop desktop and select graphic options and select external (tv) or dual (Laptop and tv).

You will also need the audio cables connect if you want sound from the tv.

Thats a basic way to do as you ask.

You also need to set your Graphics Adapter to Dual Monitor In Display Properties in Control Panel

If you have a digital camera,is it possible to take a pic and host the pic for us to see.
