HDMI (laptop to TV) no longer working like before

  FrederickLU 21:44 06 Apr 2017

Hi everyone,

I frequently connect my laptop to my TV through HDMI without any troubles. But today when I connected my laptop, I was only getting a black screen on my TV. I checked the cables and it works fine with my cable box and I've also been looking through the settings and even updated my drivers but still no luck.

I should note though, after messing with the refresh rate and trying 50i or 60i or anything with an "i" Hz instead of a "p", I was able to project my laptop screen to my TV screen. But... The image was bad and the audio was cracking and so it wasn't really viewable. At least not like before.

Does anyone have any idea as to what has happened?

Please help,
