Connecting hdmi cable to tv using acer aspire 5741z

I have the Acer Aspire 5741Z and it has HDMI connection on the side. I plugged in the cord to the laptop and then to the TV. Sometimes (depending on the model of the TV) when I set the menu to HDMI the TV will search for the connection and signal and connnect automatically. Then with other TV's is doesn't. What am I doing wrong or does to laptop has to be configured someway?

  1. Try pressing fn+f9. Sometimes you need to switch it over manually. I guess it depends on the TV. Either that or just do so in the display properties.
  2. I think its just how the TV handles searching for the HDMI signal, some do it automatically others do not.
