Why wont the oculus set up detect the HDMIcable?

Fadedzeus73Fadedzeus73 Posts: 1
I bought the rift a few days ago and it came in yesterday but when I got to the setup my sensors or hdmi wouldn't connect, after many hours I managed to get the sensors to work and connect but I still cannot figure out how to get the HDMI to work. ive plugged the hdmi from my laptop to my tv so I know its not the laptop and my laptop detects the oculus rift so its not the cable either it has an orange light and ive tried a lot of the trouble shooting but nothing works, I only have the one hdmi port and its the right port, could the problem be my graphics card? I have a GTX 1050, if I get a better one will it finally work? im at a complete loss here and these rifts aren't cheap so if anyone has any ideas please let me know

    What is the system specs of the machine itself? Windows 10? Also are you using the latest video drivers available? Might not hurt to try and updating those.
