    question syncing laptop to tv

    ok, i have a dell inspiron 8600 and my parents just bought some sony bravia 42" lcd tv, 1080p, all that crazy tv stuff. It came with a cord to hook up with the computer. I tried hooking it up to my computer, tried every input, some how it didn't work. I don't know much about computers. The reason i am asking because i want to show off pictures on lightroom to guest rather than my 15". Is it possible, or do i need like some kind of HD laptop to hook up with my parent's tv. Do i need a video card? Is it even possible? thanks for any advice.
    Lightroom is my Darkroom...Hahaa.

    Re: question syncing laptop to tv

    I've got an HP that I use to hook up to my TV. I use an S video cable, and I have to hit one of the function keys (I don't have my laptop in front of me) which puts it into presentation mode.

    What kind of computer do you have? And does the cord that came with the TV have a white plug or a blue plug?
