Change the cable - normally works - but ensure you get the latest version of the HDMI cable.

In case you missed the previous tetralogy on HDMI cables, check out Why all HDMI cables are the same, Why all HDMI cables are the same, Part 2, Still more reasons why all HDMI cables are the same, and the HDMI Cable Buying Guide. - It's also worth mentioning there's a new version of HDMI that has come out since this article was first written, it's called HDMI 2.1, and I'll mention the details below.

Other notebooks worked on the cable that mine didn't have a signal with.

4/. Open window (not the operating system), hurl laptop out of window (not the operating system), retrieve laptop from garden/street, try HDMI port again.
5/. Get a Mac.
