Sorry this is probably a very simple one but can anyone point me in the right direction of a lead to connect my Packard Bell Easynote R4 Laptop to my Samsung LE26R41BD.

The tv is hdtv ready and I was hoping to get the most out of that!!

Thanks in advance.

It helps if you tell us what display connectors both devices have available.....

Laptop: DVI-I/D?, VGA, Component, s-Video, Composite - One or more probably...
Samsung: HDMI, DVI, VGA, Component, Scart RGB/s-Video/Composite? - One or more probably...

Your laptop must have a vga out? That would be much better than s-video, dvi/hdmi would be even better.

Yes surely the Laptop much have a VGA port. If so then use the VGA on laptop to PC-Input...

If not, but it does have a DVI. The first step is to find out what type of DVI, if it is digital get a DVI-HDMI cable, if not get a DVI-VGA cable...

Very last resort use a standard s-Video cable...
