    HDMI Cable not working on windows 8.1


    I recently bought an HDMI cable, because i wanted to show my games on my tv and i will need to connect to a tv via HDMI later this year for an internship.

    But when i tried to connect my tv keeps saying 'no signal'.
    I've tried to re-enable, re´nstall the drivers, plugged the cable in my laptop when my laptop was starting up. Nothing worked.

    1. Is the TV input set to correct HDMI? For instance if your TV has 2 HDMI inputs and you connect the HDMI cable coming from laptop to HDMI2, is the TV input set to HDMI2?
    2. Is the Windows Screen Resolution tool (right click an empty spot in Desktop, select Screen Resolution) showing the TV as an available display?
    3. Does the cable work when connected to another TV or display?

    1) The tv has only 1 HDMI input
    2) I only see the normal resolutions.
    3) Yes, my brother tested it and it worked immediately.


    I now see 'HDMI not supported'

    OK.

    Turn the TV on, connect it to laptop using your HDMI cable. Open the Screen Resolution Tool, the TV should be shown there but is grayed out like the display #3 in below screenshot. Select it, then select Extend desktop to this display:

    It should work now.

    1. Turn On TV's HDMI mode, then restart the computer.
    2. Make sure, that TV is connected, then connect HDMI cable to the notebook.
    3. If does not work automatically, try to change resolution/frequency of TV in laptop.

    What kind of TV, do you have? Windows sets resolution to full HD usually, mine is HD ready only.

    I have no visual anymore when connecting with the HDMI.

    The tv is a kenmark tv model no: 19LVD03D for at my bed

    Edit: I have visual now by playing with some keys.
