I hope someone can help me. My old Dell computer, when turned on, it goes into a blank screen, no Dell logo. I believe there's a problem with my computer monitor. Now, how can I connect this old laptop to my plasma tv? My computer has no HDMI port, just vga. As soon as I'm able to do this process, I'll transfer my files to my external hard drive, then get a new laptop.

Please help. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Then you will need an active adapter to convert the analog VGA signals to the digital HDMI format.
There are many of these adapters available and some even under $10. Some will include audio conversion as well otherwise you will need to listen with headset or your laptops speakers.

I've linked on such device below for you. Whichever one you go with just make sue its VGA to HDMI and not the other way around.
