    hi guys,
    first post, recently joined the forum. Hope this is the right topic to post under.

    I have an ASUS UX305UA laptop. I used to always connect my laptop to my TV through a mini-HDMI cable, and mirror my desktop onto my TV.
    However, recently that has stopped working.

    Whenever I connect the miniHDMI cable to my laptop, I know it's been detected, as my screen 'blinks' for a second. When i check my display settings (which I have attached), I can see that there are two screen available, and that it can detect my panasonic TV as my second screen. But when i click on the 'identify' button, my laptop screen shows 1|2, and my tv remains blank.

    I checked the display drivers, and there was no need to update them.

    How do I solve it to be able to display my desktop on my TV again?
    Any help is much appreciated!

    Odd that it's choosing "50hz" (unless you are in the UK).

    Does the TV have another HDMI port? If so, it may be worth testing on a different port. Not uncommon for ports to fail (partially fail), especially if they are often being connected/disconnected.
