    Cannot connect to Panasonic HD TV -video card problem

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 pae 32 bit on my Acer Laptop.
    I cannot connect to my TV using my HDMI cable.

    I have checked for updates and read forums but do not see this issue discussed/resolved. I see some people talking about NVidia drivers and do not understand the distinction, nor do I know if this is applicable to me.

    I have also plugged in the TV and rebooted so the system would see it. No changes.
    In Display I can see a Panasonic TV but I am not sure where to go with this.

    In Settings I see my video card details:

    Intel Sandybridge Mobile X86/MMX/SSE2
    Experience: Standard

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi, welcome to the fora.

    How does 13.04 and / or 13.10 beta work?

    I'm suggesting that you try the two latest Buntus (the stable and the development release) in order to see if hardware support has improved, which is often the case.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    The strange thing is - I was running 12.04 for a year and it worked fine. I had to re-install because of a HDD failure. Now it does not work. So I am thinking it is related to the graphics card.

    Intel Sandybridge Mobile X86/MMX/SSE2
    Experience: Standard

    Or perhaps it is related to the Display settings.

    If I do not hear a reply from someone on this soon, then I will try your suggestion.
    Thanks!
