Hi Vargheseelam,

Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

I understand you are unable to connect your Windows 10 computer to a TV using a HDMI cable. This might be an issue caused due to outdated drivers causing the incompatibility. I suggest you to try the below methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

Method 1:  After you have the right cable (HDMI Cable), follow these steps to connect your computer to your TV.

1. Turn off your computer and position it within easy reach of your TV.

2. Disconnect the monitor, but leave the mouse and keyboard connected.

3. Connect the appropriate video cable from your computer's output to your TV.

4. Turn on your TV and set it to the input that matches the output on your computer. You might need to refer to the user's guide included with your TV for instructions on how to do this.

5. Turn on your computer.

You should see Windows displayed on your TV. If the screen looks stretched, or part of the screen seems cut off, you probably need to adjust the screen resolution in Windows. If you can't see Windows on your TV, you might need to reconnect the computer to your monitor and adjust the screen resolution before you connect to your TV.

If the issue persists, try Method 2.

Method 2: Download the latest Display drivers from the manufacturer’s website.

I suggest you to manually Update Driver Software from the Manufacturer’s website. Uninstall the driver and go to the manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the Graphics Card model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.

Refer the below steps to uninstall the driver.

1. Press “Windows + X” and select Device Manager.

2. Select Display Adapter and expand the driver icon.

3. Right click on the driver icon and click on Uninstall and follow the onscreen instructions.

4. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.

Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
