I hooked my laptop to my tv via VGA and tv does not detect signal


Nov 10, 2012
I hooked my laptop to the Sony Bravia tv via VGA cable. The TV detects the cable and the laptop detects the tv but no display. Help.

On my TV you have to select the source. Maybe check the resolution settings on the TV and on the 2nd monitor settings for the VIDEO on the laptop. Is the laptop capable of a 2 monitor setup?

Make sure the video is not over 1080p on the laptop. I have tried DVI, but never VGA.

What settings are you using on the second monitor?

Are you extending the desktop or what?
