Hello,

I just bought a hdmi cable to connect my laptop to my tv but my laptop won't detect any display at all. My tv seemed to be detecting a signal but then after a few seconds "no display" message shows up. How can I fix this?

My tv model: Sony Bravia KLV-32BX320
My laptop model: MSI GE62 6QC Apache

Laptops don't detect external displays/TVs. Wide screen laptops often use a default resolution that is beyond the detection range of the TV. You can try reducing the resolution to find a compatible setting.

Good Luck
I already tried that, even cranking the res to the minimum setting but to no avail. The tv still shows "no signal" message

I assume you used the correct PF key to activate the output port
