Try this test. Reduce the resolution on your laptop. Try 800x600. The boot screen is lower res than the desktop.

All you have to do when it comes to connecting your laptop to the TV is get the VGA cable and connect it to the TV from the laptop if it doesnt display automatically try pressing the FN key and F5 simultaneously. this should bring options to determine how the screen displays.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Connecting a Protron PLTV 3250 to a home theater system

Standard RCA cables are fine to connect both units. If home theater and tv has Component Video (Green-Red-Blue) connections, you can get better video result.

Monitor outputs from PCs can be very fustrating. First of all, is the PC a laptop? If so most of them do not have a dual monitor capability for supporting an external monitor, or if they do it can be difficult to get it to use both monitors at the same time. Try updating the drivers for the video board. Most of them are sold with drivers that are outdated.

Connecting laptop audio to tv

i had the same issue with a thinkpad T61 which i was connecting using VGA and a audio jack going straqight from the headphone socket to the back of tv.
I had picture but no sound and i found that once connected the issue could be solved by rotating the projection setting on the laptop(Fn+F7). Basically switched back to laptop only display, then back to laptop and projector display again and teh sound just kicked in. 
i think it's related to the projector setting on the laptop rather than an issue with the tv.
