  2. Connect the other end to your TV. Most HDTV's come with a VGA port. Check if your TV has one before buying a VGA connector cable.
  3. For audio, use the stereo 1/8” mini-plug to RCA stereo cable . Connect the mini-plug to the computer audio out jack and the red and white RCA plugs to the corresponding inputs on the TV.

If your computer is using Windows XP, you might want to restart the computer after making the connection. When the computer starts up, you would see that the TV gets initialized as external monitor as well. If you are using windows vista, you will have to right click on your desktop and bring up the display properties. Click on the settings tab and choose multiple display. You can choose to have the TV as your only main display or have a dual display of both TV and computer monitor. You will also have options to show the same output on both displays or switch windows between the monitors.
