    SMART TV Losing Connection to PC


    Hi, my Samsung TV reports 'No Signal' to PC HDMI 2, although the PC is still running, I tried to reinstall the latest driver, however, it again lost connection and had to restart PC.
    Please help.

    Silly question, how long is your cable? Had an issue myself where a 3 metre hdmi cable wouldnt work but a 2 metre cable will. Worth trying another cable buddy

    LOL, you had me there. Worth fully removing your GPU drivers and reinstalling the graphic drivers. Ive always found nvidia once it gets to 3 versions out of date, my PC tends to have GPU issues lol

    Poor quality HDMI cable, that will show up in longer cables and/or higher resolutions.
    You would be looking to a reputable supplier for HDMI 2.0, or even 2.1 specced cable which came out in 2013 and 2017.
    Assuming the monitor you list.

    I've had the TV for a while now, no problems until I installed the latest Nvidia drivers, I tried a different HDMI cable, a black one as to the grey one I had used before, tried to do a diagnostic test, just a few minutes ago and the connection was lost.

    I don't watch and use a TV that much but as I know we should only use a quality cord for connectivity, These things really matter in these types of cases/
