That laptop has a S-video output for TV. If your TV is a older model you may need a s-video to RCA adapter.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi dc3.
Besides the s-video (video only), you'll also need the audio-in connections available on the tv as well.
I'm a little skeptical as to the audio-out functions of the notebook in reguards to power.
I know you would be fine going through an amplifier first but I guess there's only one way to find out.
Some system system setup options need to be configured as well.
For a general guide, see here.
