VGA On Laptop Isn't Working

Typically there is a Fn key on the laptop that's a different color than the other keys. For example, on a Dell, it's typically purple. If you look around on the keyboard, you'll see other keys with a purple symbol on them. For example, on my Dell laptop at work, the F8 key has "CRT/LCD" written in purple below the F8.
You'll need to locate the appropriate key on your keyboard, hold the Fn key and toggle through the options. Normally, the first time you press the button, the laptop will display the picture on the external monitor only. If you press it again, you'll get a picture on both screens. Pressing it one more time, returns you to just the LCD screen.
If you give us the brand and model of the laptop, we should be able to provide more specific instructions.
Also, what "AV" cables are you referring to in your post?

I'm a little lost on the cabling you are using. VGA to the laptop and composite to the TV, but what's in the middle? Are you using something like this?

Right Click on a blank section of the desktop and choose Graphics Properties. Once there, look for the option to choose a Digital Television as the secondary monitor.

It just says Single Display, Notebook.
