TV Ouput for Toshiba Satellite A305-S6905

Does Toshiba Satellite A305-S6905 have any output so that I can connect this laptop to my tv when watching movies? I have a Samsung HDTV. I also have got  1.5m VGA SVGA HD15 M-M Male Lead Cable LCD Monitor and VGA to 3 RCA Component Cable For PC RGB HD TV LCD. Can these work? If yes, then how?

See the specs above. There's only an RGB/VGA (monitor) port for video output (at the rear on the left side). You'll need to get audio from the headphone jack on the front.

 

Since you don't tell us the model of the Samsung TV, there's no way to look up its inputs. This one, for example, has the monitor input.

Just a note on those VGA to Component cables:  They are not for connecting  a VGA signal to Component connectors, the signals are not compatible.  If all you have are Component connections on your TV, then you need a VGA to Component Converter box.  Quality and price apparenty vary greatly on the converters.

According to the User's Manual for your model, you need a conversion cable to, for example, S-Video.

 

This cheapie would do.
