Re: connecting laptop to tv
Turn the laptop off, the TV on
If the TV does not get a screen by the time desktop appears, open your graphic controls (usually on bottom right of menu bar) and select external monitor, then set parameters (size, PAL/NTSC, etc)
If this utility is not available there, look for a color-coded FN key, and a correlative same color icon on F keys (F1-F12) that resembles a monitor (rectangle),. Press both of these simultaneously, which brings up monitor option there.

Unless your TV has a component (Red/Green/Blue) video connector, you are out of luck for connecting it using the VGA output. Honestly, it's more trouble than it's worth, and VGA to TV adapters are very expensive. A much easier solution would be to get a video card that has a composite or S-Video output and use that instead. A lot of video cards manufactured in the last 5-10 years already have S-Video outputs on them, so it's possible your video card already has it. There's a picture of the connector on this page:
Even if your TV doesn't have an S-Video input, don't worry - you can get an S-Video to Composite adapter for under $10.
firstly, you should be getting your connection by going to the control panel and going to display and going to advanced and then the video card tab of your video card. The window asks you to find any external monitors. If this is how you got this far then you have to change your video resolution manually by going back to the first window in display and lowering your resolution to 320 by 240 ( 640 by 480 if that is as low as it goes. Good luck
I just got the TV for free with no remote and had the same problem. The solution I found is to connect two devices that are feeding live signal (a VCR, DVD player, or game console) to the RCA connector input on the back of TV for Video 1 and Video 2. I then used the first menu option which I accessed by using the Menu key on the front of the TV and Adjust and Select buttons to scan for channels and detect the band for the reciever to use. After doing this I changed the setting away from "Fixed" (I forget which setting) and turned the TV on and off. I then found that by pressing Menu several times I would get new menus. Before I had done that scan with more devices attached to the other ports I didn't get any other menus. I also discovered that depending on which devices I had connected I would get a Picture in Picture feature. It would have its own menu to select its source, but I would lose that feature if I changed the device topography of my setup.
some graphics cards have trouble with certain tv's refresh rate normally 50HZ ones and s- video more so than any other, if you have a vga or dvi connector on your tv i would use that preferably to s-video.
I assume you have looked in the graphics card properties and not just on the desktop settings to identify your other screen, as there is not a lot more that can be done.
