    After using HDMI cable to tv, monitor on laptop black

    I have been using HDMI cable from laptop to tv without problem. However, since updating to Windows 10 whenever I use HDMI cable, after disconnecting my laptop screen is black, it is as though it does not recognize it's own monitor.

    I have had to restore latptop twice and am worried to try again.

    Any ideas?

    Is there a key combination on your keyboard to cycle through the display outputs?

    Try that or try Win+P. Set it to clone, to have picture on both internal screen and TV. Set it to TV to have maximum resolution and best picture on TV.
