Default Problem connecting samsung tv to pc

So I thought his would be pretty easy set up but i was wrong. I have my computer attached to my monitor via vga cable. I tried connecting my samsung hdtv via hdmi cable to my monitor but the samsung doesn't even recognize that there is anything connected to the hdmi input. I even tried connecting the vga directly to the tv and it say its the wrong input data. I tried the av cables an that didnt work either.
I have an ATI radeon 3100 graphics card with the updated drivers and i am running windows 7.
I even tried connecting another smaller tv to my computer bypassing the monitor and connecting samsung to that tv but that didnt work either.

Im stumped. Your help is appreciated

To begin with, you don't connect your TV and your monitor if I read your post right. You connect your video card to the monitor and to the tv with separate outputs.

Whate connections do you have on your video card? Most of the older ATI cards came with an HDMI adapter for the DVI port or a dongle that let you use component cables for your TV and an extra DVI port or VGA port for the monitor.
