I've been attempting to connect my Acer Aspire V3- 772G laptop to my TV via HDMI cable however the TV just shows no signal. I've tried the HDMI cable with another laptop and that connected so it's not an issue with the cable. I've recently done the 8.1 windows update and am wondering if there are any settings that need changing to make my laptop able to project to the TV?

try right clicking on your desktop and you should pull up the menu. In it find the Intel Graphics Properties and choose output (and read the options)

I'm unable to find any output option? sorry I'm not very techy I may be in the wrong place, I right clicked on my desktop and picked Graphics Properties, it comes up with the option of display, 3D, options and support, video, power or profiles. i had a quick look at them but don't see an output option anywhere

usually there is a main menu within the tv that displays the model numer :) . It would certainly help to know it .

Happy New Yeark

hi there, had a similar problem with my HP laptop running window 8.1, if you open your Desktop and drag your cursor all the way to the right till the settings menu appears. Click on Devices, got to project and click, it then brings up Connect second screen. click on that and you get a choice of options! My only problem with this was that it would not let me display on the Duplicate setting, the others work fine tho!

Hope this Helps!

Go to control panel, type HDMI into the search, click display. On the left hand side you will see different options, click pproject to a second screen. And then choose how you want to connect you laptop.

I have been using an HMDI to thunderbolt lead to connect my macbook pro to my JVC tv for the past few months with no issues... until now. The TV seems to have stopped recognising the laptop & says 'no signal' when I connect it now. Is it just the wire or do I need to change some settings?!
