I need some assistance with my Laptop connected to my TV through HDMI. I have a Asus G73SW Laptop with an Nvidia -Geforce GTX 460M Cuda 1gb

I am an Ubuntu novice and I need some assistance (hand holding sadly required). I have the recommended drivers, when I used the thumb drive OS to install it was displayed on my TV. After installation, I lost the ability to connect to the TV.

Did you lose the ability to connect to your TV before or after you installed the Nvidia drivers? If you lost it post-driver-install, it likely is the drivers' problem, and you should either head over to the Nvidia forums or submit a bug report. Please try the forums first. – InkBlend Oct 5 '12 at 4:05
