Normally on a laptop you have to tell the laptop to use an external screen. This is normally by pressing the "Function" key and one of the F keys. For example, on my Acer laptop I have to press Function and F5.

Are you using the 360 though the VGA port on the TV or the component inputs?

Also, have you got access to another computer or laptop (e.g. a friend) that you can test?
