When I first got my HDMI cable, I hooked it from my laptop (newer laptop) to my t.v. (again a new t.v.). Everything worked perfectly. The HDMI automatically had the sound on the t.v. when I would plug it into the laptop. I didn't have to configure anything extra.
Now I had to do a system restore.
So I go to connect my HDMI cable.
Hmm. No sound. So I'm like what is going on? So I look up that I need to do it manually, I'm like are you seriously?? Why is that when it was doing it automatically before??
So I'm like fine. Now I hook up the HDMI cable and my screen starts flickering and going crazy when I hook the two up. So I unplug it. I try HDMI 2 spot. Now my screen goes from full size, to being indented about an inch on both sides when I have the HDMI in, so I freak out and disconnect. So it doesn't go back to normal, I put it back to the HDMI, it goes back to normal. I disconnec them and it shrinks the screen again.
So I'm like crap, I do a system restore AGAIN. Second one.
Now I'm afraid to put any HDMI cables into my laptop.
Is there something up with my laptop or my HDMI cable or what else???
