HP Laptop HDMI to HDMI TV - No Signal

I have an HP G60 laptop and prior to upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7, I could plug the HDMI cable into my Toshiba TV and then into my laptop and instant video on the TV. I finally took the plunge and upgraded it to Windows 7 and wanted to watch a TV show via my laptop on my TV. I plugged in the HDMI to the TV and to the laptop... no signal? I checked and it "sees" the Toshiba TV, but it won't send any video to it. I tried two different HDMI cables, to make sure they cable wasn't bad and the same thing. It recognizes the TV as another screen, but won't send video. This is driving me crazy, because I was in the middle of series and I want to see what happens! Please help! I spent an hour trying different things, looking up help tips, etc. and nothing worked.

Re: HP Laptop HDMI to HDMI TV - No Signal

Hello pmcountry,


I understand that you are not getting a signal to your TV.


Go to start type sound.

Select sound.

Under the playback tab, right click the HDMI and set as default.

If you don’t see HDMI right click any device and select show disabled devices.

Now you should be able to set HDMI as default.

Hit ok


Let me know how everything goes.
