Can no longer connect laptop to television

\015 I have an AKAI HDTV, a VGA cable, and have been connecting my laptop to the television successfully via the FnF5 toggle key. The last time I tried to connect, the icons did not appear when pressing the toggle key. There used to be three, now only the computer one appears so I can't select the television icon to switch my computer screen to the tv. What happened and how do I get them back?\015
