my screen goes black when I plug in my HDMI cable

I have never had a problem with the help of my my TV HDMI cable to watch movies from my laptop.  I do not know whether the windows update is causing this problem, but when I plug in my HDMI cable to my laptop, the screen goes black and the TV receives no signal.

Hi, I had the same problem when I plugged the hdmi for the first time that I chose the 'graphics options-> output-> TV' at first by right-clicking on the desktop. Later I selected "change pc settings" section of charms and the selected tab devices add a device and while the laptop was looking I have connected the hdmi cable. This is how I got to the TV screen.
probably, you will need to turn off the TV and the laptop first. Then put on the tv and select the desired hdmi option before you put on the laptop and pressing on the ' logo window + p "or"fn + f4"keys. Lets c if it works

  • My screen goes black when I plug an HDMI cable

    I have a desktop Dell 660 s with Windows 8.  I try to be able to sync my TV led with my pc.  When I plug the hdmi cord, my monitor Gets a black screen.  The only thing that shows is the arrow / the mouse cursor.  My TV can not detect the computer.  When I unplug the hdmi cable, the screen goes back to normal.  Help, please.


    If Windows is displayed on your TV, you will need to reconnect the computer to your monitor and adjust the screen resolution before connect you to your TV. If your computer does not support the type of video connection you need, you may be able to install a new video card that has the right connection.

    Step 1:

    After that you have the right cable, follow these steps to connect your computer to your TV:

    (a) turn off your computer and place it near your TV. Unplug the monitor, but leave the mouse and keyboard connected.

    (b) connect the appropriate video cable from your computer's output to your TV.

    (c) turn on your TV and set it to the input that matches the output on your computer. You may need to refer to the supplied with your television user's guide for instructions on how to do it.

    (d) turn on your computer.

    You should see windows displayed on your TV. If the screen looks stretched, or part of the screen seems cut off, you will probably have to adjust the screen resolution in Windows. For more information, see getting the best display on your monitor.

    Step 2:

    Try to activate and set the digital output HDMI as default device.

    (a) click the Windows key + X, and then Control Panel.

    (b) click on hardware and soundand then click manage audio devices.

    (c) click on the reading tab.

    (d) in the empty space of reading devices do a right-click and use the option to show all disabled devices, you should get a popup upwards with HDMI digital output.

    (e) If you find digital HDMI output Device, right-click on it and set it as default communications device.

  • Satellite U920T - the screen goes black when you drag the keyboard

    This morning, I turned on my U920T-10 days but the screen remained black.

    At first, I thought the screen was broken, but in mode 'Tablet', the screen became. Now when I slide the keyboard the screen goes black again.

    How can this problem be solved?


    For me, it looks like a bad connection somewhere between the screen and the motherboard.
    This could be possible reason for failure to display while sliding in and out.

    I guess this can be resolved easily and I think that it is a job for a technician (authorized service provider). I recommend you contact the service technician in your country to get the laptop fixed. I hope that the warranty is still valid in order to repair for free.

    I hope that this can be corrected. I keep fingers crossed.

  • Re: Satellite L350 - screen goes black when I try to play

    I have a laptop Toshiba L350 Sat. Its currently running on Windows Vista. Caused by a virus, I recently had to reinstall Windows. The laptop is now free from virus.

    My problem is that when I try to play some games that I have the screen goes black and I have to do a forced restart using the power button. There are no other noise running in the background, and Ctrl alt del does not work either.

    Is or has anyone else suffered from this problem and if so how they remedy? I'll try to re-installthe drivers when I get home this morning, but I can't think of anything that could be the cause of the problem...

    Any help would be appreciated

  • Screen goes black when the unit reaches a point in 3d space.


    I've simplified a more complicated model to try to understand what is happening, but I can't for the life of understand me. My camera starts to zoom in to a way of 3d layer in the distance. Everything's fine until it reaches a certain point, then the screen goes black. The camera did not run in the layer, I don't think that the lights have something to do with it. It just goes black. Any ideas?

    The first image is when the camera starts panning. The second is when the screen goes black. Note that the camera is still quite a distance between the 3d layer.

    Thank you!

    If you turn on diagrams, you'll see that your camera is not pointed at the level of the layers. I don't know why you have animation camera rotation. You have the camera facing the path, is the point of interest to market? You may experience gimball lock.

    The best way to animate a camera must do 3D null parent. Now you have a camera on a cart. Gimbal lock is not a problem, point of interest is not a problem, and it's easy.

  • Satellite L405D-11V - freezes and the screen goes black when you watch the video

    OK, so I have the Toshiba Satellite L405D-11V, I had a breakdown, basically, the computer freezes at any time and the screen would go black, with the fan and lights still ongoing, this could be at the start, or a few hours using the laptop, so I decided to ring Toshiba technology support and they arranged for my laptop to collect and be expelled for repairs.

    I was able to track repairs online via the tracking service and was able to see what they were doing to my laptop, he said that they have ordered a part, it was underway and the repairs are completed.

    However, I got the laptop back today, I turn it on, all right, I start using the cell phone that everything is fine, so I decide to watch a video on youtube, and it freezes again, so I turned off now pressed the power button, hoping he wasn't that a large, I turn back to and load the video once again it freezes and the screen goes black again, after that whenever I am watching a video or a game, it causes the computer to crash and freeze as before the repairs. So there is always a mistake, but I'm not sure what to do

    Its still under warranty, I bought the laptop from the Comet, but I really don't want to send the laptop for repairs again and find it comes back with the same fault, is it interesting sending distributed, maybe see if the comet will replace the laptop as its still less than a year to buy the laptop, or it'll just be useful to save all the hassle and buy a new laptop? If this fault happened to someone else, I could use you some help, and if someone could shed some light regarding what could be bad?

    Thank you

    Hey Buddy,

    You changed something on the configuration after you got your notebook back from repair? You update a driver, or something else?
    What operating system you use on your L405D satellite?

    To be honest it is really hard to say why it happens because technicians test to check if your laptop is running correctly.

    In my opinion you should try to update the display driver. Maybe it's the origin of the problem of s
    If this isn't the case, I recommend installing Windows from Toshiba Recovery disk to restore to factory settings. These parameters are pre-tested by Toshiba and should work.

    If you still have the problem, you must contact the technicians again. I mean you could track the online repair and according to your assignment, everything worked well during repair, so in my opinion he should t be a problem to contact guys exactly.
    Explain your very detailed problem. I think that everything can be clarified then. :)

    Hi, thanks for your help, but this is how I fixed it. Hope this helps others

    However, to do this: go to and do a RIGHT CLICK on the logo that is being charged. THEN: Navigate down until "settings", click it, and you should have the choice: "disable hardware acceleration". NOTE: If you do NOT have this choice, study the icons down quickly: on MY screen, the left-most is an icon that looks like a video monitor: click on it and give you the opportunity to "disable hardware acceleration".

    It works, if you can get it done before you get a BSOD! AND do not take the life of your computer in your hands by updating your video drivers. I do not really recommend doing that!
