Vizio HDTV as monitor of Vaio laptop registers as "Not Support!".
Dear experienced reader,
I own a Vizio VA26LHDTV10T which I am attempting to utilize as a monitor for my Sony Vaio VPCEH1AFX. I've successfully done this before with the exact same items on a previous occasion. However, for some reason, it no longer works. Initially, it was simply not detecting the TV, the Vizio bouncing the words "No Signal!" around on the screen. However, under advisement from a friend of mine who'd had similar issues, I changed from the HDMI1 port to the HDMI2 port on the television. This got the Vizio to register on my laptop. However, now my Vizio has the words "Not Support!" bouncing around the screen.
I'll not lie, my expertise lies in Graphic Design and HTML coding. As such, I'm quite unfamiliar with what precisely it is I need to check that could shed more light on the situation. What I HAVE tried are the following actions:
-Adjusting the refresh rate
-Restarting the computer with my TV active and connected to it
Any assistance that could be rendered would be most appreciated. I work from home and stream episodes of various cartoons through the TV for my child during part of the day. It's easier than replacing my broken converter box, and cheaper than a bunch of cable channels I'll never use. However, it doesn't matter how convenient it is if the connections don't work. I would like to thank in advance anyone capable of resolving this issue.

Not Support generally means your resolution and refresh rate are out of the range the TV can handle.
Try some more combinations of those. 60Hz, and probably 1360 x 768 or 1368 x 768 should work.

You, sir/madame, are made of Win or Awesome; I am unsure which. Perhaps it is both. I switched my resolution to 1360 x 768 (I already had the refresh set to 60Hz) and it works beautifully. A hat tip and my most profound thanks are all I can offer. Many thanks, indeed. But, I said that already. ^.^
