I'm trying desperately to output HDMI from my laptop to my Samsung 40EH6030 LED TV.

I connected the HDMI1 on the TV to the computer, it shows that it detects the TV (40" Samsung Electric..) in the "Displays" section, on the TV I select that HDMI1 and I get "No signal".

It worked on the same computer while running Windows 7.

Any idea???

Bring up the unity Dash and type Displays. Click on the icon for Displays and you should be able to choose your display from there.
