Trying to hook my laptop to my tv so that I can watch HD videos from my laptop on my tv. The problem is that my laptop has only HDMI and VGA hookups, and the tv is about 3 years old and does not have a HDMI hookup. The tv does have S-video, as well as HD hookups and regular RWY hookups. I bought a vga cable and a vga-DVI adapter, but the DVI on the tv is different than the adapter. This is where my super amazing mspaint skills come into play:
Now. Number 1 is the adapter I bought, Number two is the TV. You can see how #1 has the 4 pins around the longer slot, and the TV does not have those pins in the hookup. Any ideas?
I pinky swear that we will not screw you.
