Connecting Laptop to TV via HDMI

Post by Riz1 »

Hi, complete beginner here. Have just installed Linux Mint 13 and have dual boot capability with windows 7. Laptop connects to TV with no problems in windows via HDMI cable. However, when in Linux, I get a blank screen on the TV with no signal. What do I need to do to get the HDMI cable working in Linux? Cheers

Have you tried opening the Displays menu? From there you can see if your computer is detecting the newly connected TV and the turn it on if it isn't.
