Don't think you will get a good picture using VGA on Laptop. You need at least DVI

PS have you tried Display Properties in the Laptop? Right Click on Screen\Properties\Settings\Advanced\ then check for Dual Display in adapter settings it should show dual monitor. You may need to enable this with fn key plus another key on laptop keyboard

You cannot just connect a laptop VGA port to a HDMI port on a HD TV

VGA is Analouge and HDMI is Ditgital.

You have to use a VGA to HDMI Converter
