No picture on HDTV connected to laptop


Jan 30, 2014
I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 operating system. I recently purchased a VGA- HDMI connecting cord and when my laptop is running, I see no picture on my TV (which is set to the appropriate input, I believe). I'm not sure what to do next. Any help would be great! Thank you.

Press Windows-P buttons and see what is highlighted. Should be Duplicate or Projector (depending on what you want). Might also have a function key to 'turn on' the external port...
