    When I was using this laptop sometimes i have experienced normal booting on TV connected through HDMI and disappearing screen just before log on screen on both 1.22 and 1.28 bioses.
    Problem is with HDMI in this laptop. Other thing i find that I get better quality when i connect laptop to tv using VGA cable than HDMI.

    That you don't need windows to use or check HDMI.
    If you turn your laptop on, you see a bootscreen, or an acer screen, and it must be on your TV, even if you go straight to BIOS with F2.
    I meant to read you have BIOS 1.22, mine is 1.28, so I ask if someone have also BIOS 1.22 , he can confirm that there is output on HDMI, even if you look into BIOS.
    If not, then upgrade to V1.28.
    If yes, then your HDMI is broken if you have no HDMI on booting.

    If just before login HDMI disappeared then you have a driver conflict, but you can confirm that's it working on booting.
    With VGA you have to put separate sound to it.

    I know that will need separate audio what it gets me is that picture quality is better on vga than hdmi.

    HDMI does not load on booting.. Does that mean that it is broke?

    If i connect the laptop on a VGA screen BIOS does not lkoad either on booting, but when it enters into windows mode screen loads..

    Not really Shure, I ask people with BIOS V1.22 ( that's yours ?) if the confirm to have the same as I have, booting and BIOS on TV.
    If yes, then yours is broken.
    If not, then you have to upgrade to V1.28.
    But no one answers yet ......


    Edit;
    Can not speak for VGA, have no cable
