So here is how my story goes:
One month ago, out of the blew, my laptop's HDMI connector stopped outputting a signal.
I would connect it to my monitor, then the monitor would "pick-up" something as in it would wake up from its "power save mode" but then it would go back in it.
So, I contacted IBM (they are the service providers here for Asus laptops) for warranty.
Of course, they just decided to replace the MB with a new one (supposedly), and then I got my laptop back, working.
One day later(!), a different mobo, the HDMI connector dies - with the exact same symptoms. I had no idea what was going on, but yet again I contacted IBM, this time more furious lol, and demanded a new laptop.
After lots of arguments they supplied me with one. And guess what guys?!
Today the HDMI connector stopped working! again, same S**t.
Now, I'm really lost here. Of course I'm not going for warranty this time, as it's something electrical that's doing its thing here.
Anyone has a clue about this? the motherboard is K53 series. If you want more details, feel free to ask.
I'll add that throughout the whole process (and three laptops) the VGA worked just fine. The monitor is perfectly functional and so is the HDMI cable.
And before anyone clever may suggest it - No, it's not my plugging that's caused this, the cable was already in, and the computer was on...
