    Hey guys,

    I have to give some presentation in a rural area where there are no PC's.
    I am planning to take my PC over there and i am planning to connect it to TV as i am not interested to take monitor with me and TVs are easy to find anywhere.

    Please let me know about the CHEAPEST solution i can have to connect my PC to a TV.

    Please note that I want the CHEAPEST solution as i need it only for a day.

    Please give me the details as I dont know much about hardware. Also metion the cost for the solution if possible.

    Just get ur self a video card with a TV out....does ur graphics card have one?
    The cheapest option would be mx 4000 for aroung 1k but i think u will be able to get only a display card with out memory and stuff...it should cost u about 500-700

    I use S-Video cable to connect my laptop to TV but in US not India. If ur laptop and TV have got s-video ports its the best way to swap ur screens.
