To pc mode? Go through the various options on your tv remote whilst the lappy is connected.

unable to access pc mode, option not highlighting
unlike ext1 etc...

Is the only other thing that comes to mind. If you have the settings right in graphics control panel, most lcd tv's auto detect anyway. Might be worth trying another vga cable.
