It's interesting I unplugged everything and it sat for a few days. I plugged everything back in and it works like normal again. It's been fine for about 4 or 5 days now. I will try what you suggested if it messes up again. But just to be clear, did you mean to try to press the buttons on the TV repeatedly? or the remote buttons?
Thanks for the advice

You need to change the resolution settings for the secondary display within Windows (control panel). Another problem could be that you need to make the laptop output video though the VGA port by using the FUNCTION key (usually somewhere on the lower left portion of the keyboard) and the EXTERNAL MONITOR key (usually one of the F* keys). The function key my be abbreviated "FN" and the ext monitor key will usually have a small picture of a monitor or something and the F* keys are F1-F12 located at the top of the keyboard. The function key needs to be held down while pushing the ext mon key. Kinda like holding down the SHIFT key to make CAPITAL LETTERS.
Sorry if I'm being too descriptive or if you already know how to do this.
As far as the resolution to use, I'd start by setting it to it's lowest possible value and then you can work your way up by trial and error. Once it starts working on the lowest (usually 800x600), select the next highest and press apply. If it's a resolution that your TV can handle, you'll continue to see a picture on it. Otherwise it will display the "No Signal" message. Just wait a few moments and the 15 second approval timer in windows will expire and it will set it back to the resolution that you had working last.
Another thing to try is rebooting your laptop (with the TV already connected to it). This might cause Windows to auto detect the required resolution required by your TV and set it by itself.
You'd think with all the super-smart gadgets and multiple versions of Windows that we have today that they would've conquered this kind of problem already. But many of us still deal with this sh*& everyday.
Maybe we should set up Mr Gates (Microsoft) and Mr Hounchooleemuhngow? (Samsung) on a date so they can work some bugs out. But that might go awry, two swollen-headed super-powers at the table....
Bill: "No, no, no, Mr. YungCheeMihn. You need to submit drivers to us for your TV's to be recognized by the Windows platform."
Samsung: "Noa! Yua buy Samsung ricense for yua windo to use ow TV!"

IT LOOKS LIKE WE ALL MAY ASWELL STEER CLEAR OF SAMSUNG AS THEY ARE **** BRANDS YOU NEVER HEAR OF THEIR BETTER BRANDS SONY GOING WRONG AS THEY WOULD BE IN IT UP TO THE NECKS WITH INSURANCE CLAIMS ASWITH PANASONIC , SAMSUNG ARE YOUR CHEAP WASHING MACHINE THAT ISNT WORTH A REPAIR ,IT ENDS IN RECYCLING
THATS WHY THEIR ARE LOADS OF MODELS OF THEM, THEY ARE NOT WORTH 300-500 QUID YOU MAY AS WELL PAY MORE AND INSURE IT FOR
A FIVE YEAR WASHING MACHINE GUARANTEE BECAUSE IF A LCD OR PLASMA DOESNT LAST FIVE YEARS ITS TIME GET OUT AND ABOUT MORE
INSTEAD OF SITTING ON OUR ARSES, LIFE EXPECTANCY YOUR AVERAGE WASHING MACHINE ,FRIDGE,COOKER, HOOVER,CAR ETC IS 5YEARS SO WHY DOES THE MODERN TVS DONT LIVE AS LONG REASON PROFITS.

SOURCE: I have the samsung LN52A550. When I turn the tv on a blue screen appears. I tried changing the source with the menu button but does not display anything. The TV is about 2 years old. The sound works.
Method one- with set on, hold down the exit button on the remote for 10 seconds. It will bring up the warning it will reset to the defaults it had when removed from the box and powered up initially. in the warning box it will show the cancel button highlighted initially. press the left arrow to select the reset option. You may end up doing this blind, so you may need to try it a couple times and the only indication of where you are is just a slight flash from part of the screen.
Once that left arrow has been pressed once, the reset option choice changes to "Ok" or "reset", press "enter" The set should
do it's thing to reset and then shutdown.,
it should get you into the hotel settings, but you can reset to factory defaults from there, changing any other settings may limit access to the normal settings.
Shut the set off.
The while holding the mute, menu and info buttons, trun the set on while holding them down. If the functions portion of the board is working, it should bring up hotel options menu.

Look for any jammed buttons on remote or on control panel. Try removing the batteries of remote and see. Look for any loose contacts in RC jacks/sockets/Cable or even the power outlet.
