Then use the VGA-port of your new computer.
If you bought a PC that isn't compatible with your TV, either replace it with one that has VGA, or install a videocard that has VGA.
Or buy a TV that is compatible with your new computer, but that's more expensive, probably.

Are you having trouble with the link content? If so what step is wrong/broken/not-understood?

Also, I find some owners can't set the TV to the VGA input. Here's an example WHY THE MAKE AND MODEL MATTERS:
