didnt help
is it possible that my problem is connecting pc with vga and tv with hd at the same time?
Even if you had both cables plugged in, the television wouldn't be able to show both at the same time. Have you actually told your television which input the HDMI cable is plugged in to - Sounds obvious, but sometimes we all miss the obvious. Does VGA work with the TV? If you have both the VGA and HDMI cables plugged in to the television, remove the VGA, the hyper-logical computer can sometimes get confused by trying to do the same thing in two ways at the same time.

I'm not sure that with my laptop I even have to tell it to output an HDMI signal, my problem is getting back to the laptop screen!

I'm sorry, this doesn't make sense. You are trying to output a signal from the computer to the television, so what is of concern is what the television sees. You show us one picture and say that "The second one is the TV" Which second one, we only have one picture. Do you mean that one of the open folders on the computer screen is that of the television? Are you trying to get two different images, one on the TV and one on the computer, or are you trying to repeat on the TV what you have on the computer screen? What make of television are you using - It seems odd that it hasn't got a "D" socket for VGA input, but has got an HDMI socket.

If you are trying to achieve two different desktops, have you dropped that for a moment and just tried a straight HDMI coupling, so that you have the same on the TV as you have on the computer. I am assuming that you have selected HDMI as the input on the television selector. Just as an experiment, I grabbed an HDMI cable, plugged it into my computer and the other end into socket 4 on my TV, selected HDMI 4 on the tele and bingo! the computer's desktop. I can, should I wish, turn the computer's screen off.

Your picture indicates that you have set it for 2 VGA monitors, not one VGA and one HDMI. Is there an HDMI option for 2 monitors using different outputs? If not, it may be that your computer can't split the output in two different formats, but can only output what the screen shows when in HDMI.

So - I think we need you to make it more clear as to exactly what you are trying to do, and to be certain that you have done the basics.
