Is the computer still connected to your monitor as well?

I think what Wolfshadw meant was are you connected to both the TV and a monitor? I mainly use nvidia with multiple displays and have to activate the second display from the control panel. I would assume it would be similar on AMD setups but don't quote me on it.

In nvidia control panel it is under setup multiple displays and you just tick the additional boxes.

Give full details of your gfx card buddy and we will go from there

cheers

Just to confirm, we're talking about a laptop here, correct? And what version of Windows are you using?

Any chance to try it with a short or simple different cable? We have a lot of threads here, where the long hdmi cable turned out to be the problem.
