Hello Tom! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.I'm sorry about the issue. For wireless connection from the laptop to the TV, you can use the Veebeam HD device:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Veebeam-HD-Wireless-link-1080p/dp/B004D6725I/http://www.veebeam.com/products/veebeam-hd/
By the way, if there is a VGA / PC port on both the laptop and the TV, then you can use a VGA cable if you want wired connection.
Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you,
