    I was trying to find how to connect my Thinkpad T60 to Philips 47PFL7422D/37. The thinkpad only has VGA output, but the TV does not, it only has 3 HDMI and S-Video and 3 components connector. I read the manual, it says something about DVI but my computer does like have that kind of connector. Can someone tell me what cable I should buy? Thanks a lot.

    With your setup, it appears that your only option is to purchase an adapter. You'll probably want to do some searching, as these devices can be pretty costly. Here's an example of what you're looking for.

    VGA to Component Converter (link here)
    VGA to HDMI Adapter (link here)
    VGA to S-Video/RCA (link here)
