Are you using with the Laptop screen also on - if so it maybe due to copyright protection - I know blue ray DVDs cannot be played on two screens from my laptop, as they thing you are copying the DVD using a 2nd screen
Now i'm not an expert at games - so may not apply - but try setting laptop to ONLY use the HDMI output and see if this helps

the F key you use to switch the laptop to display on the TV should also by pressing again just show on TV screen - each time you press the key combination it will toggle between <laptop only><laptop and HDMI><HDMI only>

that may not be the issue - do you currently have the display on laptop and TV ?
