    This is the person who asked the question...the laptop is an HP dv5-2134 entertainment notebook. The TV is a Mitsubishi 1080p DLP HDTV. Video graphics on the laptop is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics and the laptop has a resolution of 1366 x 768.

    Like I said, I used a HDMI/DVI cable to connect the laptop to the TV. The laptop screen blinks and the TV has a 1sec flash of the laptop screen. Please help!!!

  6. Try setting the laptop to 1280x1024 resolution.
  7. If that doesn't work try some of the other resolutions that your laptop can use.

    I tried really low resolutions (in the 700s) but that didn't work. I am not at home right now to try the resolution you suggested, but I will try that. Some websites suggested changing the refresh rate or something, but I can't seem to modify that on my laptop. It is set at 60Hz right now.

    Is there anything else I can try if changing the resolution doesn't work?
