Hello, I bought an hdtv and my laptop has the VGA port. So I bought a VGA cord and connected the television and computer, this worked well for a couple of days. After that the TV is showing no signal mind you I do have PC input on. Before the problem I would hook up the VGA cord from the TV and a window would pop up on my laptop asking me how I would like the view settings to be on the TV, but now no option pops up on my laptop. Has anyone got any idea how this can be fixed and whether or not I can access the VGA port/device options?
Thank you

thanks so much 777bons
I had the same issue. Every time I connect the VGA cable to the laptop and to he TV, the laptop display used to power off and displayed its contents on the TV. All the sudden, it stopped doing that.
I pressed and held the Fn and then F5 ( it happened to be the key to change between monitors), and that fixed the problem

Thx a lot
