    I've been at this all day and can't get anything out of it. I've reset the BiOS, I did the fn + lcd key, I've read all over the user manual, I've checked my HDMI cord. I have a HP Envy m6 gaming laptop with a broken screen. I am trying to connect it to my TV via HDMI, it seems like it is recognizing my TV but can't seem to get the connection. I have no idea what to do other than just fix the laptop screen now

    You might just have to replace the screen, especially if you have reset the BIOS. It might be sitting at a BIOS screen waiting for you to re-enter the BIOS settings. After that it may not use that screen without being enabled in Windows. Most laptop screens aren't that expensive and pretty easy to replace .

    Many Envy M6 laptops have a VGA output as well
    if you can use that to connect to TV rather than hdmi, you stand a better chance of it being recognised and mirroring the laptop screen including the bios set up screen
    In my experience of HP laptops and hdmi, they don't usually work on hdmi on the bios screen only once windows has loaded fully but the vga does
