Hello! Sorry first time ever posting! I have a problem with my laptop and tv connection and was wondering if anyone could help? My laptop won't connect to my samsung tv, but it'll connect to my mates tv. I've tried 3 HDMI cables and still wont connect. Ive updated, roll-back and re-updated drivers, restart the laptop and nothing. However my samsung tv will connect with my Xbox One. Anyone know why?

Have you tried doing this? Some Samsung TV requires you to change to PC mode before it will recognize a PC signal. Since they are relatively cheap, might want to get a DVI-HDMI adapter and go from the DVI port to HDMI 1 on the TV and see if that works.
