Re: Studio 1749 HDMI Connection to TV -- No Video on TV
The desktop does not appear correctly ON the TV and it should. You should mention your operating system. Make sure both the laptop and the tv are off when you connect the hdmi cable. Then turn on the tv and select the right input and then turn on the computer. With HDMI the computer screen is usually immediately seen on the tv if you have windows 7. If it doesn't appear recheck your Display settings on the computer. The F1 key is used to switch to external monitor, but you might need to use the Function key with F1 to get it to work. However, that is for a vga connection and it's not usually necessary with an hdmi connection.
