After fixing far oo many of these, I can't write that it's always the same thing. Sometimes I find the owner didn't set the rate to 60Hz, sometimes it's a driver issue. And you always carry your own HDMI cable.
There is no recurring single fix. And only those new to this will think that since it works on other sets means it's not the PC.
Trying to hook up my notebook via HDMI to my new Samsung PN51E550. The resolution recommended is of course 1920X1080 on the Nvidia setup (GT 425m). However, it only works properly when set to 1280X720.
When I crank the resolution to 1920X1080, I see the windows desktop flicker a couple of times on the TV. Stays working for a few seconds, then blacks out on the TV and says HDMI no signal.
Whats the fix? I have connected my notebook to other 1080 tv's before and the only issue I ever had was overscan issue but never flicker then no signal. It's a HDMI 1.3 cable. Like I said, it works fine on other TV's so I know my notebook and cable is working.
