So, recently my pride and joy has been having an issue where it will not connect via HDMI despite chaning out the cables for multiple different ones. The HDMI still works for consoles however, so I assume it's an issue with the PC. Luckily, I have another PC so I hook that up and... that one doesn't work either. Huh. I decided to pull out the big guns and carry down another TV. I hook that up to the second PC, and oddly enough it doesn't work, not even with inserting the cable into multiple different slots on the PC AND TV. Lastly, I bring over the original PC...
And that doesn't work either. My mind is blown. I've tried every cable, tried every port, tried every PC and tried every TV. What is causing the issue???

Make and model of your 'pride and joy' please, or if it is a self-built, the main components - mobo, cpu, RAM and especially what video card you are using if it is a separate one. And the OS you are running.

 

If it is a laptop is the video displaying normally on the screen ? And one possibly silly question - on our main TV you have to select the HDMI input you want to use using the TV controls. Is this set correctly ?

The absolutely logic-defying thing however is that I've tried this on 3 PCs now with varying specs with absolutely no luck. They all run Windows 7.

Considering not computers and no tv's are working would you please answer Chris's question?

 

Have they ever worked for you, because you did not include that fact, though may have eluded to it saying "recently" in your first post?

There is  a wide variation of hdmi "connectability" between PCs and TVs. I have 3 laptops all running the same version of Windows 10. Two (Acer and Lenovo) connect to the TV w/o problems, the third (Toshiba) will not. But I tried the Toshiba on a large professional monitor and it worked OK.

Have you tried updating the drivers for the video card?
