How do I hook up any laptop to my LCD TV for a presentation?

I have a Vizio lcd tv and need to hook up a laptop (owned by someone else, not sure what kind) to the tv for a presentation to be made from the tv. How can I do that?

Re: hooking up laptop to TV

Depends on the video and sound inputs available on the TV and the video and sound outputs available on the laptop. And then when using the right cables, you have to know how to activate those outputs on the laptop.

It can be easy and it can be impossible.

Depends

If your laptop and TV have HDMI ports then its very simple you just have to look for a HDMI cable to make the connection. If you have HDMI port only on your television, then you have to look for USB to HDMI converter along with the HDMI cable. Hope this helps you.
