Send laptop screen to TV via USB?

A friend has just bought a new LED TV, which has a USB port. He's asked me whether it's possible for him to duplicate his laptop (Windows 7) screen on the TV.

In order to do this, I presume he has to tell his computer to send the video output to a USB port instead of to the VGA port. Can this be done?

The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1720. Its video card is an Nvidea Geforce 8400M GS.

Thanks for any advice.

Pineman100 ... The PC does not have 'USB Out', but putting the pics or whatever onto a USB Stick should solve the problem - I guess the TVs Manual would give more information about using its USB Port.

It is possible to get a IEEE 1394 to USB Adapter, so this would be the way to go. The PC does have IEEE 1394 Socket.

You can create a slide shoe. How to. Then copy it to a USB drive.

What is your knowledge on the VGA and HDMI because just the presence of a simple USB port will not be of assistance. Again, what make of TV is it. I had a similar problem of connection, but i got help here. Was worth it.

Nontek: and I'm not sure I'd want to get support from someone whose native/first language is patently not English. judging by their home page... :-) (yes, curiosity caused me to follow the link. £1.53/minute? I'm in the wrong business...)

OK, the USB stick sounds like the best answer for my friend.

Many thanks everyone - your help is much appreciated.
