Most HDMI/VGA adapters only work if you use HDMI as the output and VGA as the input. It sounds like you are trying to do the opposite.
If your laptop only has VGA for output you will need either to buy a VGA to HDMI active converter or use one of the analog inputs on your tv (you can use a VGA to Component adapter).
