Assuming that both the notebook and the TV have an HDMI port, you can connect the notebook to the TV. Attach the HDMI cable to both the notebook and the TV. Usually the laptop screen will automatically appear on the TV.
If it does not, you may have to reboot the computer with the cable and TV attached. Some laptops, if they do not detect an HDMI cable will disable the port during boot up to save battery power.
You can also hold down the Windows key and press P (for projector). With Windows 7 or 8 that will bring up a box that allows you select and activate a "projector" which would be your TV.) You can also do this by right clicking on the desktop, and going into screen resolution. There is an option at the top of the screen to detect external monitors and then decide what you want to display on it (meaning same as your laptop screen or an extension of the desktop.)
