you need to select the correct input on the TV (usually by pressing source button on remote)

you also need to set the laptop to output to the external VGA port (usually Fn + one of the F keys {square in blue})

Apologies for contradicting Fruit Bat's advice, but the cable he linked to won't work as your TV doesn't have any RCA RGB inputs.

What you need is a VGA converter - HERE's one example of the device you need to get, although I've not personally used it. You'd then connect it to the S-video or RCA video-in on the back of your Sony TV.

Note that if you simply want to view movies and photos then the picture quality will be satisfactory. If you intend to use it to mainly view text and other small objects then you'll be disappointed with the lack of sharpness. The same applies to all those converters.
