HDMI Output: HELP! I've no idea where to start.
Problem: Connecting my laptop to my HDTV via a HDMI cable, all of which worked previously on windows 7 yeilds strange/no results.

1. Turn Laptop & TV on
2. Connect HDMI from TV to laptop
3. Right click desktop, Screen resolution
4. Press Detect.
Notice: 'Another Display Not Detected'
5. Hold Windows key press 'P'
6. Select Duplicate Displays
Notice: Resolution Changes yet not output to second monitor/TV
7. Right click desktop, Screen resolution
8. Press Detect.
Notice: The pressing of Detect has done nothing. 'Display' is now set to 1|2 multiple monitors.

I'm really stuck here so any help is appreciated!

(Solved) Gaming: Whilst attempting to play games the laptop would chug along and an incredibly slow speed, slow refreshing rates and long loading times - Making FTL almost unplayable!

After a quick search of the internet I was directed to the following website:

AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

This proved extremely helpful linking me to the page that included the download that updated my display drivers.
