Hi Fat1maa,

The problem seems to be with the Video card Drivers or the cable itself. Try updating the video card drivers. If that doesn't fix the issue try changing the HDMI cable.

If you need help with the Video Card Drivers, please provide me the "Device Instance ID" of the Video card. To get the Device instance ID of the Video card, right click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop, select "Manage", select "Device Manager" under "Computer Management" from the left pane, then expand "Display adapters" from right pane. Right click the device listed under "Display adapters", click properties, go to the "Details" tab, and then select "Device Instance Id" from the dropdown list. Make a note of this "Device Instance ID".

Please do write back to us.
