Does anyone know how to output to a TV on an IBM T40? The only type of video out connection is for a external monitor - are there adapters that can allow you to plug that into a TV?
There is an s-video out port between the modem and usb ports on the left side of the system. if you dont have an s-video input on your tv you will need a s-video converter. Best Buy should have them. Then you will need to change you settings in the display properties to get output from the tv.
if you shop around online or at radio shack, you can easily find a cable that converts s-video to RCA video. Same goes for audio (headphone plug to stereo RCA).

On a side note, you wouldn't happen to be a freshman at Rensselaer Polytechnic, would you? That class got the T40s this year =P
