I use my laptop for watching Netflix. I have it connected to my tv using an hdmi cable.
Now after watching netflix for about 5 minutes the issue will start. Both screens go black real quick then picture comes back. But it is frozen and making a loud ticking noise through the speakers on the tv. The laptop is then non responsive and will only shut off by holding the power button. The laptop then will not turn back on. When I try to start it back up it tries to start but shuts off after about 3 seconds. After I let it sit for about 30 minutes it will then allow me to power it back on. This used to not happen but now it happens every time. I thought it may have been over heating but it doesn't feel hot at all.
It only does this when connected to hdmi.
The things I have tried are: Higher quality HDMI cable Using to setting to only use the tv as the display Tying it on other tvs.
What could my issue be? I'm not very savvy with computers.
I understand that you have a TV connected via HDMI and when you watch Netflix after approximately 5 minutes then both screens go black and the notebook freezes. You have tried changing the HDMI cable and different TVs but that did not make a difference.
