Windows 7: VGA to SCART?

VGA to SCART?

Hi,

I'm not sure whether this is entirely the right place to ask this, tell me if it isn't, but I was wondering about connecting a laptop (HP G56) to a fairly old TV. The TV has a SCART input not being used at the moment, and I thought maybe I could use this (Hama SCART To VGA cable: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories) cable to connect the laptop's VGA port to it. Is the VGA port an output even? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium..

Thanks in advance.

One of the other Forums that I participate in had a similar question. Here is the link: View topic - Connecting a laptop to a pc - Windows, Apple, Application, Abandonware and Game Beta Downloads/Repository - BetaArchive

The lead you mentioned, by the way, is for connecting equipment with a SCART output (DVD players, Video Recorders, etc) to a monitor with VGA input. It doesn't specify whether or not the lead would work in the reverse direction, i.e. VGA to SCART.
