Once the computer output is VGA you would need a VGA to S-Video / RCA Adaptor plus the

correct S Video and Audio cables to connect to the TV

VGA to S-Video / RCA Adaptor

S-Video Cable / SVHS Cable

3.5mm Jack to 2 x Phono Cable

Make sure that all of the cables are the same length

I am sure that you can get most of the cables at your local TV or Computer stores

The VGA to S-Video / RCA Adaptor you might have to order

You can use the S Video or the single yellow connector to supply video to the TV

Connect the audio cable from your sound card output connector to the audio input on the TV

You have to select the correct input on the TV via the remote control for the pc display to show
