PC to lcd tv through HDMI?

I'm not sure if anyone here would care to lend a hand, but I would appreciate it. I'm trying to hook up my hp pavillion laptop to my sharp lcd tv. The laptop has a hdmi card and the tv has three hdmi inputs.
The pc is an Hp DV7 and the tv is a sharp lc46d82u.
When I first connected the cable both devices were on and it gave me the option to clone my monitor on the pc, no input on the tv. I have gone through the resolution and display settings and restarted both devices and unplugged and replugged the hdmi cable. I dont get the option to clone any longer and have yet to see a display on the tv.

Any ideas?

try looking how to use the function key, (Fn) in combination with F1-F12 and you might find the option

Yeah the Fn key plus the F-key that says CRT or LCD on it should do the trick. That's what I have to do with my Dell.

You might also have to check the refresh rate, some TV's won't operate from a PC till the refresh rate is set at a level the TV supports.

Yeah my laptop toggles with fn/f4 but I can't seem to get it to actually switch between anything.

On my HP laptop, I have to hit Function + F4 to enable video out for second monitor. If it's not working after enabling that mode, then it's a issue with the TV settings. Or start off with the most simplest test. Try a different HDMI cable. Also, keep in mind that newer model HDTV with multi HDMI ports..... Each port is assigned to something. My Plasma has 3 HDMI ports. Port 1 is assigned to my Onkyo. Port 3 is assigned to game console. Etc..... So, after plugging in a new device, you have to switch HDMI ports in the menu. If you are plugged into Port 2, but Port 1 is currently selected for TV. Then you see the problem. At least that is the way it is on my Panasonic Viera.
