Hello,

I bought an HD TV and my laptop has the VGA port. So I bought the VGA cord and connected the television and computer. This worked well for a couple of days. After that, the TV is showing "no signal". I do have the PC input on.

Before encountering this problem, I used to see this pop up on my laptop asking me how I would like the view settings to be on the TV. This pop used to appear right after connecting the VGA cord from the TV.

But, no option pops up on my laptop anymore. Has anyone got any idea how this can be fixed and whether or not I can access the VGA port/device options?

Thank you in advance!
System Configuration: Windows Vista Internet Explorer 7.0

hi 777bons,
i have tried all these things you suggest for no success.
In the display settings I do not have the option for second monitor but I do have a blue key 'Fn' and at the same time key 'F7' or F8' .
'F7' is meant to black out my monitor and only display the TV and 'F8' will display on both.

but I can get nothing to work as yet.

been trying for a while now and am getting lost in the challenge!!!
please help.

If you hook up your vga cable from your pc to your tv and get a no signal message. Do not go to display properties under system settings.Try going into your graphics driver in the control panel settings. There you should see the options for multiple display. Make sure your primary device is notebook and secondary is monitor, then choose the clone or duplicate display rather than extended display. Click apply and a message will appear confirming the changes. Click yes then click o.k.
