Got an old laptop running windows 7 and it has a VGA port along with the USB and Audio Ports. No HDMI.
I have a new LED TV and I want to re-purpose my PC so that I can browse the net (Flickr, netflix etc) on my big TV.


Now I know that if the laptop had an HDMI port everything would be very simple. My question is:

Is there a way to connect my laptop that has a VGA port to my TV which has a HDMI port? If Yes. How?

Well if you have a receiver you can run the audio through the receiver with a y audio cable like this:

Otherwise if you dont have a receiver there may be a way to use the y audio cable with your tv and change the settings to accept the audio through the rca inputs as opposed to the HDMI input.
