  1. TV will need to be set to the correct scource (hdmi not PC)

  2. Often you can go hdmi to vga with a cable Ok but need an adaptor to go va to HDMI.

Have you enabled the external monitor function in the OS (control panel, display properties) or via the keyboard (usually function + F key)?

Connect both via VGA-VGA cable, not via HDMI. This WILL work.
