What lead

Depends on the connections your laptop has. If it has HDMI then that is the best. It should have a VGA port which is a notmal computer-to-monitor connection and you will need another lead (mini stereo cable) for your audio.

Connection

Any retailer that sells electronics can help you with the proper audio cable. It's called a mini stereo cable and has one plug on each end. One end plugs into the sound card on the laptop and the other plugs into the single audio IN on the TV. If you do not get sound, you may have to edit the PC source name on the Source List of the TV.
