Hp pavillion hdmi output was working fine and not the tv is dark. It shows a picture when booting up but once booted, the tv goes blank. Can you offer any solutions?

I had the same problem. The first time I used the HDMI port, it showed up perfectly on my TV.

But, next day I get a blank screen. When I rebooted the laptop it would show the windows splash screen and go blank.

I won't tell you how many things I tried that didn't work.

What you have to do is stupidly simple. Right click on the ATI logo in the systray, and then left click on catalyst control center. Run the basic wizard. I'm not sure which screen it is on but choose "clone". Suddenly, a miracle happens, and it works.

I don't know what kind of genius decided to make a second display not work at all unless you ran a wizard. But thats what I did to fix it.

Fuzzy screen

I have exactly the same problem with my W880i. Suddenly, one day, out of the blue it went half and half, the right side completely blank(yet still with the back light on - I think - ). And a few months later (now). It suddenly randomly went completely blank - back light definitely on -. It happened today,and I am desperately searching for a solution. If I take the battery out, put it back in, turn it on, I can feel the vibrate, and notice a slight change in colour on the screen. But it stays completely blank, and hasn't changed in hours. So ANY help would be appreciated.
