Connect laptop to tv

Cannot figure out how to connect my laptop to tv. (to watch videos/dvds on the tv screen)
My laptop is a very recent Pavilion dv4 with a port for HDMI & a female vga port.
My tv is a bit older with several audio/video rca ports, & a female vga "PC In" port.
So I got a cable with one end fit to the hdmi & the other a male vga for the rear of the tv. I plugged both ends where they belong. No picture on the tv. This is where I start getting lost & confused. I tried changing the tv's function settings from "YUV", "PC in", "AV in", & "TV". Nothing.
Clueless as to what setting adjustments I may need to make to the tv &/or laptop or if I'm even using the right cable. (Running Win7)
