PC display not showing on TV screen

I am using an HP Pavilion TS11 Notebook pc running windows 8


Have purchased t 2 ended HDMI cable and attached ine end to the PC and the other to my Bravia HD TV set. The laptop tells me it is connected to the Sony TV but the TV just continues to display the TV channel it is tuned into.


I looked on the Sony help website for Bravia TV's but it does not list the model I have as compatible with Windows 8 even though the TV is only 4 years old and not on a home network so not sure if this is relevant.


The TV is connected to the arial through a Panasonic DVD recorder using a SCART lead between the TV and the DVD recorder.


Can anyone advise what to try next, thanking you in advance.

Re: PC display not showing on TV screen



The Connection setup you have done is correct, But the TV need to read the Laptop's input so on your TV you will have a button to change the Source press that button and chose the HDMI Port your laptop is connected to and if the screen still doesn’t come on the TV on your laptop press the Windows Key and the P key together and chose the option duplicate that should work  


Hope this helps.
