Value of Excel Formula Won't Show

This problem has driven me nuts on more than one occassion, so I am documenting the solution here for reference. Maybe this will help you.

Problem: Enter formula into cell such as "=B2". After entering formula, instead of seeing the value of the B2 cell, you see "=B2".

Connecting a Sony KDL-19M4000 HDTV to a Sony Vaio PCG-V505BCP laptop

It took me some hours to figure out how to get a Sony Vaio PCG-V505BCP laptop running Windows XP Professional to work with a Sony KDL-19M4000 HDTV the way I wanted it to, so I'm posting these instructions in case they might help someone else.

The instructions haven't been completely walked through end to end yet—they are based on notes. So there may be some missing, unnecessary, and/or incorrect steps.
