    Connecting laptop to tv


    So my old tv died and had to purchase a new one and the spec page lied about having a vga port (decide to keep the tv but got compensation for the issue). I decided to connect my laptop using hdmi which works not to mention I guess the up side was being able to push the sound to my soundbar via hdmi as a bonus. Now the downside is switching sources as I regularly switch between my roku/game consoles as well as my laptop, it seems switching back to my laptop leads to my screen showing static noise and not the picture until I turn the tv off and on again and I was wondering if there was an option to make it so when I switch sources that it would just go to the duplicated screen rather than requiring me to turn it off and on again to get a picture.

    Laptop not recognizing TV through HDMI connection

    Hello everyone!

    First I do apologize if this is not the correct section for this thread.

    I've had issues connecting my laptop to TV for the past day. Connection is done through an HDMI cable. Connection was good up until it randomly turned off itself while playing a game. There have been no hardware or software changes whatsoever that would affect it.

    TV is SAMSUNG, Model: UE32J4000AW. Laptop info is available in My PC Specs. (laptop is brand new, week or two old)

    Here's what I've tried so far:


    • 3 different HDMI cables
    • switching between ports on TV
    • tried all projection options on Laptop
    • Disable / Enable both Intel and Nvidia drivers
    • Rollback Intel GPU driver and installed it back to latest version
    • Re-installed Nvidia driver
    • Restarted PC and TV
    • Scan for hardware changes through Device Manager
    • Checked Intel and Nvidia control panels - there were no available options
    • Apparently both HDMI ports on the TV work as I tried them with a tv box.

    I think that's all I've tried so far, will add anything else if missed. Open to suggestions.
