Hi I am a total rookie with computers and connections and I am trying to connect my laptop to my TV moniter through VGA. Everytime I connect the wire and set it on to the VGA channel the screen is blank and says 'Picture format not available' My tv is a Philips Matchline widescreen flat TV 42PF9945 107cm (42") plasma Progressive Scan with Digital Crystal Clear. and my laptop is an acer and has windows 7. I litterally do not know the first thing about computers so desperatly needing some help on this! If someone could walk me through it would be very much appreciated! I have tried attatching the lead and changing the properties to multiple displays. I dont know what else to do! Thanks!
