    i suspect that HDMI port on your Z5761 is just HDMI IN not HDMI OUT.

    so you can use your Z5761 as monitor but not send any video/audio signal to external monitor

    I'm not an Acer employee.

    Did you solve this? I have a similar issue with an Acer Predator G3-605 and to a Samsung 65” 7080 SUHD 65” 4K TV (UE65KS7080UXZG. When I restart the computer, it fails and gives me a black screen (not even bios).
