I want to connect my notebook to my LCD television to be able to see videoes in much bigger size and in major definition but when I connect the cable VGA to my notebook it does not detect my LCD, I go to the option to form the screens, give him in detecting monitors and nothing happens absolutely. What can I do to connect my notebook to my LCD?

Some notebooks will have a hardware key combination for switching to the VGA output. On my notebook this combination is Fn+F7. –  adempewolff Jun 8 '12 at 6:36
