Hooking laptop to tv without a usb

My tv isn't that old but has no usb port. What kind of cabling do I need to connect my laptop to it, or is it impossible ? If there is some sort of cable available do they sell them on Trade Me ?

I don't know.
Would possibly be helpfull if we knew what the laptop was.

It depends on what outputs the laptop has and what inputs the TV has.

USB isn't used to connect computers to TVs anyway. VGA, DVI or HDMI are what you need.

The TV is HDMI , the laptop is HP Envy, it has a HDMI port.
