    Windows 8.1 updated now my TV wont recognize my HDMI port?

    Everything was working great until I downloaded the windows 8.1 update. Now, when I plug my HDMI cord into my TV absolutely nothing happens. I've projected the screen, I attempted to re-download the VGA driver (which completely messed with the start up of every single program on my computer). I'm not computer savvy, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!
