Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:
If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
Make sure your TV and computer are off.
Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a.Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote). b.Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one. c.Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.
At my mom's at christmas: 1. turn samsung off. 2. enter service mode via remote: mute-1-8-2 3. turn on power 4. you are now in service mode. navigation is clumsy, but use the up/down/left/right/menu/exit buttons, etc. 5. find the field called "Option Byte" 6. Switch PC from "Auto" to "Enable" 7. Get a hug from your mom, you're awesome!
note: be careful messing around in that menu. This simple bit flip that gives you VGA input doesn't erase or delete anything, but many other options may.
My acer 5100 has acer empowering utility programs, you need to go there. the pathway is: Start - All Programs - acer empowering tecnology - acer epresentation management - click on "Projection: XGA (1024 x 768) icon" this should send the screen signal out the VGA jack in the back of the notebook to your TV. Hope this helps
How do I connect my acer netbook to my CRT HDTV? I have an adapter, but the image is not appearing on the TV screen. I restated, set it to 800 by 600, but no dice. My adapter has 15 pins. What can I do?

Look for a VGA output on your laptop. You will also need a VGA cable. Also there are function keys along the top of the laptop (should have a small display icon) that you need to set to route the video signal to the external VGA connector.
