External Monitor (on HDMI) does not work from Acer Aspire (allsettings correct, all hardware fine).

I have an Aspire V17 and i connected an external monitor to it (via HDMI). The external display does show something, although the settings (duplicate or expand screen) are fine and the monitor works great if i connect it with the same cable to a different Laptop. Are there any drivers i need to download to the pretty new, WIN 10 operated Acer Aspire Laptop?

    when you connect the external monitor, if you right click on desktop and choose Display settings, is the monitor listed?

    I have the same problem as well. I am trying to connect my Dell 2260L monitor which works absolutely fine with other laptops and even my PS but somehow does not get detected as a display on my Acer Aspire VX-15. I connected my Acer to Sony Bravia TV and it worked fine. There seems to be some compatibility issue. Any help is highly appreciated.
