Dell Inspirion 1370 won't connect to Sony Bravia


Standard Member
I have previously been able to use my Sony Bravia as a display for my laptop, but now its not working, when i plug it in, i get the HDMI symbol appearing on the TV next to the relevant channel signifying that the TV can recognise the cable input.

Also when i plug it into my laptop the screen flashes off temporarily and the new hardware sound goes off.

But the TV remains black, sound doesn't work either.

I've tried my computer on another TV with another cable and it worked succesfully. Please help!

You can tell the laptop to output via HDMI in control panel, display, settings somewhere or via a keyboard shortcut, try either of them
