    Is your TV definitely set to display the HDMI input? Does the computer recognize that the TV is connected? You can try outputting the screen only to the TV as a test. Also make sure you are using a resolution at or below what the TV supports.

    Try extend instead of duplicate, and see what happens.

    Are you able to try the HDMI cable with another device, like a DVD player, to make sure it isn't the problem?

    looking on the Acer website i found this for you.

    This article only applies to: Aspire Z3-600, Z3-603, and Z3-605 desktops.

    The Aspire Z3 series is not designed for use with a second monitor. The HDMI port is for input only and allows you to connect devices that output video.

    An input, that's different? I guess that's so you can connect it to your cable box to watch TV on it, or your game console? The manual for it should detail that function and how it works, and confirm this.

    That explains it. Probably designed for a dorm room or something like that, so the laptop doubles as a TV.
