Hi! Unfortunately I found out the problem but it was not an *easy* fix. It was actually a problem with my motherboard and I ended up having to send my laptop in to get the board replaced under warranty. Everything has worked perfect since then so I am not sure what caused the issue, maybe something as simple as static or unplugging the HDMI cable before the computer powered down. Sorry to not be good news but that's what I ended up having to do. I tried everything else and determined it had to be an issue with the motherboard. Good luck!
