Civilization V Crashes when playing through an HDMI
Hey all, first post.
I know the title is kinda weird, but the whole situation is pretty confusing to me as well.
Civilization V works great on my laptop. I can play on Ultra, haven't run into any graphics problems or anything else that makes me believe there is something wrong with my laptop.
However, I often like to hook my laptop up to my Samsung HDTV to take over the world/shoot people on a big screen, and I've never had a problem until now. If I try to plug my laptop in mid-game, Civilization just crashes on the spot. And if I already have my laptop hooked up to my tv and I go into Steam and select "play Civilization V" it goes into a black screen, waits a few seconds, and then comes up with a "Civilization V has stopped working" notification.
At first I thought it was an issue with my tv, so I tried hooking it up to one of my friends computer monitors, and it did the same thing.
I looked through the common problems section of this forum and I couldn't find anything to help.
Obviously, this isn't a huge deal, and I still love the game, but it would be great if I could get some help with this.
