Connect the HDMI cable / open CCC (If the card is ATI), or whatever Nvidia uses (If its Nvidia), configure the TV out side of it

Usually there is a hotkey to output to an external display

Fn+F5 or similar

When connecting a computer/notebook to a TV/projector I have found that it is always best to start with both units turned off.
Connect the HDMI cable to both, then turn on the TV and make sure it is on the correct HDMI input (the one you plugged the cable into) then turn on the notebook.
Most of the time the notebook will detect the TV and automatically switch the output to display on it.
If not you will need to go into your graphics card software and turn on the TV/HDMI output.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 - Looks like its an ATI card, so will be using ATI Control center. Right mouse on the ATI icon in the taskbar, and configure TV out
