You will have to get a VGA and RCA cable. You can connect the VGA cable from your laptop to a VGA/RCA adapter, and the RCA from the adapter to the projector.

How do you adapt vga to rca?

First off, RCA can do two different types of video signal: composite (the standard definition yellow RCA) and component (the high definition 3 x RCA colored red, green, and blue). Both of these are totally foreign to VGA and needs an active converter (as opposed to just a simple VGA to RCA cable of which there are many - These will work only if the VGA port outputs a signal compatible with component, or if a component port accepts VGA signals which is less than 1% of the VGA to RCA cases). There is a converter for VGA to RCA (composite) that will cost around $30, and a converter for VGA to RCA (component) that will cost anywhere between $50 and $200 (depending on if you want scaling, which will smartly change the resolution to fit your TV's settings).

Your VGA to RCA cord will not work?

This is one of the most common problems in terms of PC to TV hook-up. People will buy this VGA to RCA cable to connect their computer to their TV but the VGA signal is foreign and not compatible with the TV's RCA input, which is usually either called composite or component video (both are not the same signal as VGA). Since the signal is so different, you need an actual VGA to RCA signal conversion box. These will cost around $30 to $200 depending on whether you are wanting to do composite or component video. Composite is the standard definition (fuzzy and not that great) and component is much more clear and can support high definition.

VGA, a computer video output, cannot be converted to a composite (1 video wire) or component video (3 video wires) signal with just a cable. VGA can be much higher resolution than composite video. You will need a scan converter box to create the NTSC video signal.
