    I used to manage to project onto my panasonic HDTV from my laptop no problem - specs below:

    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional , 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5250 @ 1.50GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 13
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 2038 Mb
    Graphics Card: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family, 384 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 114370 MB, Free - 10736 MB;
    Motherboard: Quanta, 30CC, 79.1D, None
    Antivirus: Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Updated and Enabled

    I Upgraded to windows 7 and replaced the hard drive and when i tried a few months ago to use my tv as a monitor i had no luck whatsoever.

    Im trying to use a VGA cable. I cant get the TV to display anything, in spite of trying to switch tv projection on using function keys etc, adjusting aspect ratios, changing other display options and turning both the tv and laptop on and off multiple times.

    I cant work out how to get back to using the TV as a monitor.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as i have no idea where i'm going wrong.
