I am not sure of either TV or Laptop Models or make, but my laptop only has VGA output, and My Tv only has S-video alongside the 3 RCA inputs, so these wires are my only option!

Guidance would be really appreciated!!

"I am not sure of either TV or Laptop Models or make"

Then how do you expect us to know the best way or even if possible to enable you to use the TV as a monitor for your laptop?

I suggest you look at the label on the back of TV and the label on base of Laptop.

Do you have the User Manuals for the TV and the Laptop?
