    You Should have a TV with a Monitor input (I think that's what it's called not sure) and then you can connect through the cable you use for the monitor!!! Hope this answers your questions.

    solution

    hi frnz i got solution to my problem .the solution is as follows





    It is very easy to set up and it can be done very cheaply, and in some cases free. The cost comes in with cables and adaptors which are cheap unless you need to buy an extra component. It should be possible for everyone to acheive for well under $100.

    This article will show you how to connect your computer to your television and stereo. We will cover lots of different scenarios so I hope by the end of this article, everyone will have successfully been able to acheive this.

    This theory is identical to if you want to hook your computer up to a projector so if that is what you use, this article is also appropriate for you.



    What you need:

    This is hard to define initially in this article as there are so many ways to achieve this depending on what type of television you have and what video outputs your computer offers. You may also find that you only want to attach the stereo, and leave the TV disconnected, or vice versa. That is fine, just find the relevant parts of this article to suite your needs. For now we will keep it very basic.

    A Computer, desktops and laptops will both work. You will require a spare output from your video card.
    A Television with some type of AUX input.
    A Stereo with some type of AUX input.
    AUX stands for Auxilery, which means an input from an external source. Most stereos and televisions will have these as they are what you would use to connect your DVD or VCR to it.

    How to connect your video source to your television:

    We are going to look at video first because there are a lot of options here. Connecting your computers audio to your stereo is a much easier task.

    The quality you will receive from this setup will depend greatly on the television itself. You may find that reading text and desktop icons are very difficult with the analog options below, but even with an old television, you will be able to watch movies which are on your computer on your TV. They will be of similar quality to connecting your DVD or VCR to your television.

    Define your televisions AUX input type:

    We first need to define what inputs you have on your television. Some will work better than others. The newer and more expensive televisions are likely to get better results. We will start with the best and work our way through. It is best to keep the format the same at both the output of the computer and the input of the television, meaning that we don’t want to convert from Component Video to S-Video connections where possible.

    The Digital World:

    HDMI - High Definition Multimedia Interface: Ideally we will all have an HDMI connection on both our television and video card, but most likely don’t have it on either. Many new LCD screen and Plasma displays offer this mother of connections. They are also becoming a little more popular on Video cards. This will give you the highest quality signal. This format can also carry audio. This is very easy to connect from one device to another. It offers the same video quality as a DVI.

    DVI – Digital Visual Interface: Many current computers will offer this connection out of the video card. You may well find that if you have a plasma or LCD television, this will be the best connection to use.

    The Analog World:

    VGA/XGA – Video Graphics Array: This is the standard video output you would have from your video card in your computer. There are not many televisions with these inputs on them. I specifically bought a CRT television with this port many years ago as LCD and plasma displays were very expensive at the time. It offers a good quality picture but is limited on my TV to 640Χ480 resolution. Text is readable and movies look great. This VGA resolution is higher than what most CRT screens can handle.

    S-Video – Separate Video: This is common on Video cards and televisions. With this format, you will have difficulty reading text on the screen, but films and games will be fine. This is the same output many DVD/HD-TV boxes/Gaming consoles offer so you can expect the same quality as that. Many video cards have this connection.

    Composite Video – RCA connector: Last and definitely least is the trusty RCA connector. This is what we have used for many years to connect audio and video components together. This is of a lower quality than S-Video but it is still fine for sending audio and video signals around the place. You are most likely to have this connection on your TV and it is possible that you have this on your video card also.

    How to decide which connection to use?:

    Here are some scenarios: The higher up the list the better

    Computer has HDMI and TV has HDMI – Use HDMI
    Computer has DVI and TV has DVI – Use DVI
    Computer has DVI and TV has VGA – Use VGA + Adaptor
    Computer has VGA and TV has VGA – Use VGA
    Computer has S-Video and TV has S-Video – Use S-Video
    Computer has RCA and TV has RCA – Use RCA
    Computer has S-Video and TV has RCA – Use RCA with adaptor
    Computer has RCA and TV has S-Video – Use RCA with adaptor

    If your scenario is not in this list, things get much trickier
