i have a fairly old acer laptop and got a new samsung 32" smart tv but to connect laptop i can only use an hdmi port on tv. there is a vga port on laptop, ie its colour blue,. I saw a vga hdmi adapter but will this work for my needs, ie allow me to watch laptop on tv? its not very expensive for such a simple solution. I know sound will be via earphone. socket.

HDMI is digital only, and VGA is analog only. a cable will almost definitely not work.

Read down the comments in the LINK and you will see that you need some sort of active converter.
