If your friend wants to use a TV as a computer monitor - forget it. The resolution of a conventional TV is not nearly good enough for this use.

If you want to use the computer as a DVD player or similar, then a standalone DVD player will only cost very few ££ and it really isn't worth the bother of trying to use a computer for this.

I think he wants to connect it up as got quite a few videos on his computer he would like to play through his TV

Again, I think that connecting the computer up will be more trouble than it's worth.

Assuming the machine has a DVD writer installed (most have nowadays) use DVD editing software to write to DVD and use a conventional DVD player to play back through the TV.
