    HDMI not sending signal to HDTV


    Hello,

    I just started having this problem on both of my laptops, Toshiba Satellite and an HP, and I have exactly the same problem on both of them. Both of them loose the signal as soon as windows starts loading so it has to do with windows 8 since I get a signal just before windows starts loading. I have tried to go to the display settings and on both of them will not detect my HDMI TV. I don't seem to be able to find a solution to this and it looks like there are quite a few people having the same problem but no solutions. Any ideas?
