Hey guys, sorry to have a first post like this but I'm at my wits end. I know my way around a computer but this problem has me stumped, so I'm biting the bullet and reaching out to see if maybe there's something I'm just overlooking.
I recently bought a Sanyo DP46841 for a pretty decent price, and I'm attempting to connect my laptop to it via HDMI. My laptop is a Asus G46VW laptop, which I'm connecting to the TV because the laptop screen has been broken for a while, and while I do plan to fix that eventually, I've just been connecting it to an old Dynex TV I got ages ago (which it is connect to right now as I type this.)
The TV has 3 HDMI inputs, the laptop one output. The laptop and the cable are not the problem, because as stated above, my laptop is connecting fine to my old TV; and I know the 3 ports on the TV are not the problem, because I have tested all of them with my Chromecast, and I get a signal without a hitch from it on all inputs. Do the same with the laptop, however, and there's nothing doing.
I also plugged an old VGA cord into the TV and the laptop, and there was a video signal with that, but VGA sucks and I'd rather not have to use it if I can help it at all. Also, I know the computer is detecting the TV, because I can see in the Device Manager that the TV shows up as a monitor, and I even see it listed in the Audio Devices section as Sanyo-LCD something.
So, I'm at a loss. If you need any more info definitely let me know, if you can think of something else I can try, hardware or software, let me know for sure! As of right now my set up is laptop connected with VGA to old Dynex TV, connected with HDMI to new TV, and set to extend display in Screen Settings. Thanks for the help in advance!
EDIT: Sorry, forgot to mention, the laptop has the latest version of Windows 10!
