Hi there
You need to check 2 pieces of hardware Both the TV and the computer graphics device.

With the Computer. Do you have any "holes" on the back which are marked Audeo / Video OUTPUT -- these will be "Composite" and most TV's will be able to use these as an INPUT source.

If your TV has a "Euro Scart" connector - the large awkward oblong shaped thingy then you can get a "Composite" to SCART adapter - just plug the 3 composite leads into the 3 slots on the SCART adapter and use the AUX in switch (or AV) on your TV to watch.

If it a VHS-S connector ( a small 4 / 5 pin device) then your TV *might not / probably won't* have the same device -- if it does then just directly connect the cable between computer and TV.

Other connections are HDMI and DVI (usually for games etc).

A problem with HDMI output is that a lot of things like Blu Ray DVD's are DRM encoded and probably will have some sort of Macrovision to stop you playing these in HD (1080p) on a TV. "Composite" usually always works although you will then only get Standard definition video output.

Use your mobile phone to take a picture of the output connections on the computer and the input connections on the TV. Post the pics so we can see what we are dealing with.
