Tell what video mode you tried and how you enabled the vga port and how you tested that said port works with some external display.

You probably need to adjust the PC display settings for the external monitor (the TV). In Vista, this may be through Desktop->right-click->Personalize->Display settings, though many systems have adjustment through proprietary display drivers. Start with resolution for the lowest value (usually 800x600) and work upwards.

15 pin HDMI?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 28, 2010 9:34 PM PDT
In reply to: mode not supported lists the usual four types of HDMI which none have 15 pins.

It appears you are trying the usual 15 pin VGA connection (read )

VGA output is harder in that there can be almost any resolution going out and I find many struggle to enable and configure that. The unsupported mode is the message when it is either not enabled or set to some resolution that is not supported.

Sadly this is slightly hard and made worse by a lack of standards. That is, the method I use on my HP is not the same steps as I use on my Dell.

If you are using an hdmi cable or dvi to hdmi make sure you commect it to hdmi port 1.
Also make sure that the cable is not defective (cheap hdmi cables from ebay aka China can be of lower quality and cause this as well
