How do I connect my PC to both my monitor and TV: particularly with a splitter?

Like many people I have a desktop, including CPI and monitor, running on Windows XP I also have a television: specifically a Samsung flat screen.

I also have a television: specifically a Samsung flat screen.

My CPI seems to have only one VGA port, though I have a splitter as well.

When I connect both TV and monitor to the splitter, the monitor darkens a little and the TV says “PC” and “Mode Not Supported”.

Even when I just plug directly into the TV–-without the splitter--I get the same problem
(“PC” and “Mode Not Supported”).

How can I get video on both TV and monitor?

Thanks.
Update: Hey, it seemed to have worked.
Thanks.
