About a year ago i decided to connect my acer laptop windows 7 to my samsung tv via vga cable. I stopped using it for a while and when i came back to it, it stopped working. A black screen just appears on the tv. Please help, I have tried changing the settings but nothing.

  1. connect vga cable to TV and laptop

  2. select PC input on TV

  3. Use The FN and F key with the blue square symbol(F5 on my Toshiba) to cycle through - laptop screen - laptop + external - external only modes.

I've tried this multiple times, still no luck.

This isn't a problem with the TV or the VGA cable, it's a problem with the laptop. I tried this on my mother's sony vaio laptop and it works perfectly fine and the settings are the exact same on my acer laptop.
