Cannot get HDMI to HDTV using connection from Laptop
Posted on 2011-09-27
I am having a wierd problem. This happened before I think when I tried using my AMD Card via my Desktop to connect via HDMI to my HDTV. DVI/VGA work fine everytime I try that with the old desktop, the laptop i have now, and my mom's laptop. I have tried researching and had no luck at all. There is a button via Fn + F4 on my laptop which is supposed to change the display over to another one or duplicate them. But, I always just went into the Screen Resolution settings and changed the video there. I chose detect and the display would come up fine when connected via VGA. That is how I connect via it now, but I have an HDMI cable so I would like to use that. My laptop also has HDMI and I would like to use that as well. The port can't be broken although that is a possibility. I just think I am doing something wrong, so please help!
