Hey all, i just got an OLED tv and wanted to connect my desktop pc to it. I can plug the HDMI from the tv to my laptop, and no problems. But if i connect to my desktop, the desktop screen goes black, it reboots in a loop, and the OLED tv flickers. As soon as i pull the HDMI cable out of either the pc or the tv, the desktop boots back up as normal. I have looked for days for an answer, and lots of people seem to have the same problem. Im usually great with working things out, but i just cant seem to fix this....any ideas? (and its not the fact that the picture has gone to another screen, like windows key + p etc)

Computer is Ryzen 3900, 32gb ram, 2 x geforce 1080.

I have tried with and without SLI, and have tried with only one GPU in...

many thx

Sonic

it reboots in a loop,
Do you mean that the system reboots or that the display continuously goes black(with backlight on panel) and then goes out?

Might want to state your full system's specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Age of your PSU? You might also want to try with a different cable and see if the issue persists.

ryzen 3900x
hero mobo
32gb ram
win 10 64bit
2 x geforce 1080

the cable is fine, as it works with laptop to tv, and you can see the bios...it only loops logging into windows continuously.

Well kinda sorted it, i had to change my 165mhz desktop monitor to 60mhz, and not use a display port cable, but use a hdmi, so i have a hdmi in geforce card one, and hdmi in geforce card 2 going to TV. Then duplicate screen and it worked.

(will not work at all with display port, causes a loop and crashes)

Just in case anyone has same problem
