You have a VGA port on this so what you need to do is get a VGA cable like this.

You then connect one to the VGA port on the computer and the other to the TV
Then set the input on the TV to the VGA input and you will see the screen from the computer.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Is it an all in one PC where the monitor is also the computer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes (Lenovo C470)

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, your only option then is to use this adapter which is going to run via your USB port.
You connect it to your USB port, then using the VGA cable I previously suggested, connect that to the adapter and TV.

Sound wont come from the TV, but computer, but with the setup you have, this is the only one that is going to work.

Hi i have USB 3.0 HDMI HD Adapter, with HDMI To HDMI Cable that fit into the tv HDMI Port . ( this setup worked on my mac )

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
If it is compatible with your computer which I do not believe it is (as it will just work), then connect it to the computer and TV and see if you get a picture.
If not, then you need the adapter I recommended.
