just wandering like with a desktop tv you can plug it into a tv, just wandering if you can do the same thing with a laptop. My laptop has like these lines going down it that I am sick of because my laptop has had some minor accidents and has caused the line to go down the laptop monitor

Not sure why you would plug a tv into a tv...

Only if you have a tv out on your laptop. If you dont have one, you can buy one. TVs dont give good resolution, you should just buy a monitor - much easier.

there is a type of connection called an s-video connection that is quite common now, almost all dvd players and a lot ov tvs have it.
if your computer has this plug on it (which my compaq presario 2500 does) you can use it to connect your computer and your tv.
this plug is usually yellow or black and resembles a mouse or keyboard plug
