I think the device you are looking for is called an upscaler be carefull prices and quality vary widely

I'm having trouble posting on this thread, this is a test post.

Well that worked so will try again.

You will need a signal converter because VGA is analogue and HDMI is digital. I found a thread on avforum.com which will give you some info but pca won't let me post link - have tried various methods - even not making it a link but it still won't post.

Will the lead for amazon work? In the link above my post

Thanks lotvic will the lead from amazon not work then?

I don't know, I can't get your 2nd link to work - get a 404 page not found.

Will have another look at avforum and see which lead/converter they favour.

Am I right in thinking that you have a VGA out on the laptop and a HDMI in on the tv? What make and model is your tv? (need to find out which resolutions it supports)

Hi screen resolution is Screen Resolution - 1024 x 768 samsung
