what you see on the laptop screen will be on the TV. But since TVs have different resolution than computer screens, the picture may not fill the screen.
I know how to connect my laptop (a Dell Inspiron E1505) to my TV (a 1080p Samsung) but before I go buy the cables to do so I was wondering if it was possible to play games such as Sims 3 and have the display be on my TV. My problem is I don't have a good Video Graphics Card installed on my laptop to play Sims 3. I'm going to get a new computer in the next few months so its not worth it to me to buy a new graphics card. If anyone has any words of wisdom or help it would be greatly appreciated. thx
