I'm trying to connect my tv to my laptop using an HDMI cable. When i plug in the cable, the tv screen goes almost completely white, but the laptop screen is fine. I initially thought it was the cable, so i tried it on my desktop and there were no issues. Any ideas as to what may be wrong?

Perhaps you have to go into the display resolution setup and activate the tv as another monitor. It's also possible the card is insufficient for the tv. How big is the tv screen? If it's an nvidia card the control panel has an nvidia control panel as well to activate multiple displays, connection setup, ie- hdmi/vga,... Try that , and good luck.

The laptop uses the HD4500 Integrated graphics. The tv is a 32 inch bravia. It's worked a couple times in the past, so im not sure why it wouldnt now
