I have a Samsung 40" LED UN40EH5000 (no vga support)
I have a HP p7-1047c ( no hdmi support)
I have a vga to hdmi converter - all cables properly hooked up

I don't have a picture. What am I doing wrong? Is it a resolution issue?
How can I tell if my TV supports it?

Did you checked the TV's video out, Video1/HDMI1 or 2 first?

I tried both. The TV says "No signal, check connection" or something like that for both HDMI 1 and HDMI 2

What brand of converter box do you have and is it connected by onboard video port from cpu? The cable connectors might be the problem or the box itself.

The brand is Linkstyle.


Linkstyle


I think I have the wrong part maybe? Is this converter for watching TV on my PC.
I figured this would work both ways

I have a Samsung 40" LED UN40EH5000 (no vga support) -> The digital signal of HDMI converted should be out, not IN.
I have a HP p7-1047c ( no hdmi support)

-> It means your source for video coming from the desktop is VGA, so the VGA should be converted to HDMI.
What you need is a VGA to HDMI not the other way around. From the Linkstyle link :
Specification

HDMI Input: HDMI to VGA Converter.
Interface Type: HDMI in, VGA + Stereo audio out.
Input Signal: HDMI, DVI ditigal signal.
Output Signal: VGA analog signal
