    Try a different hdmi cable, check inputs, make sure the hdmi device is powered on and not going through any other devices between computer and display.

    I have tried switching cables and different hdmi ports but no go. I think maybe it's the stock display driver that's doing this. How do I update the driver if the screen goes blank? TIA

    Or that you need to go into mobility settings and check “Desktop” settings You can always do a DDU to fix it if it is a driver issue with the GPU. Also check bios settings.
