Probably a dry joint, easily fixed with a soldering iron.  ;)

Surely the LCD TV will have a button on it (or on the remote) to select an input?
Just connect a VGA cable and select VGA.

If your PC only has DVI video you can get a DVI to HDMI cable, but VGA is probably easier if available.

It won't be any better on that size screen, so don't waste your money.  ;)
What's it's max resolution? 1280 by 1024 or less?

It was a jest!  8)
Anyway, try the options and see what works. DVI/HDMI won't improve things though.
