    Hi there,

    Had my laptop for 2-3 years now and have been using a small TV connected with an HDMI cable as my 2nd monitor. Yesterday this suddenly stopped working. When i plug in the HDMI the screen flips to the TV and the laptop screen goes black and it wont detect a 2nd monitor. I've just updated my graphics drivers, didn't help.
    I have an Nvidia 970M.

    Hmmm, interesting. I'm fresh out of ideas at the moment though. (Senior moment?)

    Anywho, hopefully someone else will drop in here soon with another idea or two.
