Forgive me in advance because I'm a little technologically challenged. I have a Toshiba laptop (L500-02H) that I want to hook up to my Toshiba smart tv (55L7200U) but I don't want to do the wireless connection between them. Can someone suggest a cord that I can buy that will enable this?

I have attached the spec for your computer and your TV User's Guide.
For the video, it appears that you can use a normal 15-pin RGB cable to connect from the RGB output port on the computer to the "PC In" connection on the TV.
For the sound, use a 3.5 mm stereo audio cable from the headphone port on the computer to the similar port on the TV.
Those connections are shown on p. 40 of the TV Guide attached.

So far as I know, that RGB connection cannot handle 3D, but does provide high definition.
[Edited because I was wrong about the HD.]

Crap. Perhaps I'll take a few pics tonight of my laptop and back of the tv and see if that might help you suggest what I need?
I already told you what you need. And the documents I attached to my original reply tells everything we need to know. There's nothing more for me to say.
I don't know why you're unhappy.

Please don't get me wrong because I really do appreciate your help. I'm not unhappy but I am a bit disappointed that the RGB cable won't allow me to watch 3D or HD.
I was thinking that pics might help you identify how I can get the most from my new smart tv.

Hi! Does your lap top and your TV have a HDMI?? Here's a excellent video. I'm not sure about 3D. From every thing I've read HDMI is the best way to connect your PC and TV. I could be very wrong about that. You can Google and check it out!

The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port but the tv does. I'm not concerned about not getting the 3D picture but it's the HD quality I want to get. Apparently, the RGB cable won't permit this.

Hi It seems you only have one choice and Jerry has explained that very well. Live with the RGB or buy a newer lap top.

Okay so I picked up the RGB or VGA cable and I'm getting an HD picture but no sound. I tried plugging the little yellow patch cord from the headphone jack on the pc into the audio port next to the pc in line (VGA cable). Still no sound.
I'm getting closer lol
