Most tvs can only handle a couple resolutions (ie 640x480) through the pc input. Even some HD tvs can only do 480. Check that your video is turned on and setup to the acceptable resolutions.

one quick fix you can try. plug in the HDMI cable, slect a digital audio sound output from the sound settings on your machine, then leave it connected and restart it. It just might work.
