1) Did you install x86 or x64 version of 7?

2) What outputs does your laptop have?

3) What inputs does your tv have?

The best option would be hdmi.

Then connect an HDMI cable from your laptop to your TV, and adjust any settings.

In control panel look for nvidia control panel, plug in the cable and look at the display options. GPU is your graphics card. You might have to lower the resolution of the TV. Check the control panel.
