    If the PC is working correctly, but just no display, all of them that I've seen will automatically output via the external monitor connector if something is connected. Most TV's have to be set for whatever input, are you setting the TV for the VGA input?

    Maybe there is no video out on the PC and that is the problem and not the actual display?
