I am attempting to connect my Dell laptop to my Samsung TV using a male to male VGA cable, and even though the computer recognizes the television as a secondary screen, the television refuses to recognize the computer. I've tried changing the settings on the computer, and can't seem to find anything in the settings on the TV to adjust that seems like it would help. Is there anyone out there that has any knowledge on the subject, has had previous experience with a similar situation, or has any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions? I'm all ears, willing to try anything that won't break my equipment, and at your mercy. Please help me!!
