I have no idea until you tell us the exact model number of your laptop.

Your HP laptop has a VGA (15 pin) Video output port. If your TV has a VGA port then a standard VGA cable and a Headphone to RCA cable (for sound) is all you need. If you don't have a VGA TV port then you will need either a VGA/HDMI converter or a VGA/component video converter plus the sound cable.

Good Luck

Thank XPCMan. Works fine.Wish the laptop had a HDMI, wouldn't have had to bother with head phones.
