How to Connect PC to TV via VGA: 5 Steps (with Pictures) - wikiHow
If you want to play a 3-D game, watch a movie or show a presentation on a larger screen, connecting the laptop to a television can be an ideal solution. Many modern TVs have VGA ports for connecting laptops, but even if yours does not, multiple solutions exist for connecting your laptop via an adapter or converter box. For some older TVs without VGA ports, connecting a computer may not be as simple as using an adapter cable. This type of connection offers limited resolution, though. Many simple adapters are available for VGA connections. If you want to use the HDMI port on your computer to output video to a television, though, a simple adapter will not suffice. While a few overseas companies advertise plug-in adapters for converting VGA signals to HDMI, they do not work except under very specific circumstances, and then only with select TVs and video-card chip sets.
