after days of trying to configure my laptop and my tv I decided to take a lamp and look very carefully the HDMI port on my laptop and I found out that one of the little pins inside the HDMI connector was all the way in so it was not doing any contact with the HDMI cable, what I did was I opened my laptop and found the HDMI port and with a little screw driver I pushed the little pin out and it works!, but I STRONGLY RECOMMEND NOT TO DO THAT, at least that you know what you're doing, otherwise you can damage your laptop. This was my experience and it works for me.
