Hello, i have a lenovo z575 laptop and up until today i could use it on my tv via hdmi cables. Now the laptop wont recognize the tv. I called lenovo support and they said that even though i have a software and hard ware warrenty this specific problem isnt covered because its a setting. They wont tell me what the setting is unless i pay them 250$ and i think thats absurd, so i was wondering if someone could help me. I have restarted the computer multiple times, tested the hdmi cable, tested the hdmi port on the tv, tested all ports on the laptop including usb, and vga. Please help me.
Were you able to run the laptop and tv simultaneously and would the display on the tv on the correct hdmi channel appear automatically?
Yes i was able to run them simultaneously. I would use the tv to play games/watch movies from my laptop, and it would display in the correct channel. All i had to do was turn the tv on, then plug the cable in and it would show it.
