Default Laptop connection to tv

Is there a way to hook a laptop up to a tv without HDMI cables?

Yes many ways, for example if the TV has a VGA or PC input and the laptop has a VGA output then a VGA cable will work. If not then there are VGA to component converters. If the laptop has only a HDMI output and the TV has a VGA or PC input there are HDMI to VGA converters. Then if the TV does not have a VGA or PC input and your laptop only has a HDMI output then there are HDMI to component converters. Also if the laptop has a composite output then if the TV has a A/V input a composite cable could be used. Or if the laptop has a s-video output and the TV has a s-video input then a s-video cable could be used. Also if the TV has an A/V (line) input and the PC has a s-video output (but no composite video output) then a s-video to composite adapter can be used. In all cases an audio cable will be required for sound.

By now it should be clear that the question asked is far to vague with respect to what you have on the laptop and the TV to be answered specifically. More information could provide far better answers.
