If your laptop has svideo output then your could hook a s-video cable from the laptop to the TV. You will then need to right click on your desktop and goto properties. Then click the settings tab, then click the advanced button. Another screen should pop up and it should have a displays tab. Click that and select TV as your output (it my even say s-video output). Apply and OK. Hope that helps or at least gets you in the right direction.
