Sorry for your troubles. Have you tried another HDMI cable? Just a thought...
Regardless, I too suspect your video card. Does it work properly at all other times?
What make/model of laptop are you using?
Hi COlGeek, thanks for the reply
Haven't got another HDMI cable, but I use the same one for my friends laptop and it works... So i doubt it's that.
Yeah works fine for everything else, even play some pretty graphics-demanding games with minimal problems (sometimes the fps drops a bit for some games, but it's still somewhat playable and i'm not quite sure how much is normal). Have tried updating drivers as well
The laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6-3132TX - i think
