Maybe check the resolution settings on the TV and on the 2nd monitor settings for the VIDEO on the laptop. Is the laptop capable of a 2 monitor setup? Make sure the video is not over 1080p on the laptop. I have tried DVI, but never VGA. What settings are you using on the second monitor? Are you extending the desktop or what?
