Connecting laptop to HDTV

I have an Asus laptop with Windows 7 and am having problems connecting it to my Samsung HDTV. When I connect the HDMI cable from the laptop to the tv, the tv says no signal detected. I tried a few things I found on internet searches but nothing produced results. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, I have to ask . . .

Do you have the owner's manual? Since there a gazillion Asus laptops, only you have access to that information.

On a general note, is there a hot key or graphics configuration that activates the HDMI port on the laptop?

Tried it

Yes I should have the owners manual. Model is UL50V

I tried something like that based off of the internet searches I found. Function keys, setting it up as a projector, messing with the graphics config, none of that worked.
