The first thing that you have to do is, of course, to connect your PC to your TV. In order to accomplish this, you will need to secure a video cable. It could be an S-video cable, a standard VGA cable, or an HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) cable. The easiest to use is perhaps the S-video cable as all TV sets have an S-video input. Also, most computers have an S-video port that can be connected to the S-video input of your TV screen with the use of a very cheap S-video cable that has around four to seven pins.
If you wish, you may also make use of standard VGA ports or even a DVI to HDMI cable in order to connect the computer to the TV. A 19-pin HDMI connection is recommended because it can display resolutions up to high definition 1080p on your television screen, thereby delivering a much better picture quality. But then again, you have to make sure that your TV supports this type of connection.
You may also need to connect a 3.5 mm stereo jack plug into the line-out port of your PC sound card. As for the other end of the cord, plug it into the audio input port on your TV to play stereo sound through your TV speakers.
After you have made the connections, turn on your TV set and your PC so that your computer can automatically detect your television as a second monitor plugged into the system. Use your TV's remote control to switch the setting to "External Inputs" from the menu. Modify the default "Video 1" to a different selection which may be "HDMI 1" or "Video 2" depending on how you have made the connection. Adjust the screen resolution of your TV as to avoid image distortions on your screen.
