Hdmi not recognized 1050 ti laptop

I bought a rift and during my initial setup the hdmi cable wouldn't show as connected. I am using a laptop that fully meets the recommended vr settings, except that I have a GeForce GTX 1050 ti, which should still meet the minimum requirements. I have tried everything I could find, and oculus hasn't responded to my support ticket. I can provide more information on my laptop if anyone needs it. At this point I'm afraid I just have a bad cord. Please help!

    I should mention that I have run a vive on this before.

    So does your Vive still work fine with this PC?
    Alienware 17r4 Laptop with i7-7700hq 2.8/3.6, 32 gb ram, gtx1060 w/6gb ram, 256gb ssd, 1tb hdd, Oculus Rift w/2x sensors.  Now using an Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) with Zotac gtx1080ti Blower and Asus vg248qe 144hz external monitor.  All works great!

    I don't own a vive, but I've used one on with my computer before. It worked fine then, so I'm not sure whats up with the rift.

    If the on board Intel GPU is connected to the HDMI cable then the Rift wont work, I'm not sure if Vives are ok with that though.

    I know, and I'm not sure if my hdmi is connected to the intel gpu, I set all the nvidia preferences to use the geforce one.
