Hello Chloemonique, and welcome to TSG.

1) Have you made sure the HDMI cable is firmly connected at both ends?

2) If the TV has more than one HDMI port, have you made sure you are plugged into the same HDMI port you you said was working at one time?

3) Have you made sure the HDMI output on the laptop is enabled? Many laptops have a dedicated button or use a Function key to toggle between different active external and internal displays.

4) Have there been any hardware changes since the setup was last working correctly? Have there been any Windows updates?

Beyond that, it might help us to help you if we knew the manufacturers and full model numbers of both the laptop and TV.

I have found that if I connect the HDMI cable after the laptop is up and running, the TV finds the signal.
