I went to a friends house and seen his laptop was connected with his flat screen and he had a wireless mouse and keyboard.

I need to know how I can hook my lap top to my flat screen. I have HP Pavillion entertainment DV9730US laptop and New flat screen

when you say flat screen do you mean tv or computer monitor? a model of the flat screen would help too.

Most likely you will just need to use a vga cable (or possibly s-video) to go from your laptop to your tv/monitor.

oh an once it is hooked up you will probably need to hit your function key (fn) and then something like F4 or F6. There should be a picture a monitor/tv on the fkey. this will change the video output from the laptop screen to whatever you have plug into the vga port.

Mean Flat screen TV. ok so no HDMI cable? I do see the monitor button on f4.

I do have an outlet on left side of laptop that is round and has a sand pic of tv with an out arrow.

SOME newer higher end laptops are coming with HDMI ports on them now but they are still kinda pricey. I've hooked up my laptops in the past using the S-Video jacks on them but the picture isn't very good..but it does work.
