I'm trying to connect my Asus G50V laptop to my Vizio television through the VGA Port.

I'm not sure if I just don't know how to do this, but I plug in the cable and nothing comes up on the television. I can't find anything about certain settings that need to be fixed, and I'm not sure if the port works on other monitors.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Edit:

I found have to go into the Nvdia Xserver setting to get it to kind of work. I enabled the CRT, but I can't seem to figure out a couple things.

How to get the screen aligned properly on the TV
How to get both screens to run at the same time and not treat it like a dual monitor
How to keep the TV display going when I close the laptop lid
