That would depend on the capabilities of your TV.  If you have a VGA connector on your TV, you could connect the laptop directly to that connector and use your TV as the laptop's screen.  If your laptop has an HDMI connector you could use that as well to the TV's HDMI input.

Re: FEED PHOTOS & HOME VIDEO FROM LAPTOP TO TV

Some newer televisions come with: USB ports, or possibly a Flash-card port. This is what I prefer to use. Also; if you own a Blu-Ray (or regular) DVD player you can transfer pictures to a DVD to play on the tv.

 

By the way; the safest way to back up your photos is to copy them to: USB drives or DVD's. Those hard-drive back-ups tend to not work well if your Hard-drive goes back on a computer. The directions supplied are useless when you need them. I have over 10,000 photos stored on multiple copies of USB drives and DVD's. I really don't trust Flash Drives except for transferring from camera to computer, or using them on photo devices. Theie not safe for long term storage. I have never lost any files stored on computers since 1979.
