you should have a button that you have to press to get it to switch over, on mine i have to press and hold the Fn key then press the F4 key might not be the same on yours but you should have a f something key that has what looks like a little screen on it that is to switch the output if that does not work try hooking up your laptop just like before, and then restart it. good luck

You may need to set up the video card to see the TV so you can display the computer on it.Somewhere in the setting for your video card should be settings for that.

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!"

Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.
