3000 G530 Laptop to TV

2010-04-11, 0:29 AM

As mentioned above, I have a 3000 G530 that i would like to connect to my TV to share photos and videos.  This machine does NOT have an HDMI port. 

 

My TV can accept HDMI, component, S-Video - what device can I obtain that will connect me up to either a USB port or the PCI Express port?

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

 

Fred

Forgot to say on first message - how about the VGA port as an output?

you can buy a VGA-HDMI converter, but those are a bit expensive, at almost $100 from what I've seen. The easiest bet would be to buy a USB video adapter with HDMI or DVI output. It basically adds a video card to your system via USB. Those can be purchased for much much less. Just don't try using them for any heavy graphic needs like gaming. They aren't good enough for that. Fine for general computing, presentation, internet browsing, though. Just google USB-HDMI, or USB-DVI. DVI can be converted to HDMI with a mere cable adapter, but they make them with HDMI, so whatever your choice.
