It might be that you have more than one HDMI connection on the TV and need to select the right one via the TV.

Yes there are two HDMI ports on the TV one has my Blu Ray player connected to it the other has my Humax player connected to it and that is the port I use for the laptop which is HDMI 1.I just unplug the Humax and plug in the laptop.The procedure I follow is this.Turn off both TV and laptop connect them with HDMI lead turn on the TV select HDMI 1 from the input then turn on the laptop right click on the volume icon select playback devices click on Sony TV and click on set default.
