Default Laptop/TV hookup???

Is it possible to hook my laptop up to my tv so I can watch DVDs on my TV, through the laptop?

what sort of inputs does your tv have, if its a really new one it might just have a dvi in, all you need then is a dvi cable with possibly a analog converter. BUT 99% chances are that your tv doesnt have a DVI in.

I had a Dell D800 and it had a special pig tail with a video, sound out, and s-video out. Maybe yours might have come with a similar cable.
