Windows 7: TV Is Turning Laptop Off (HDMI)

TV Is Turning Laptop Off (HDMI)

Hi, new here. After searching for information on my problem I could not find a single thread with the same issue.
Having said that, here goes.

I just bought a new TV (RCA RLDED3258A-C) and attempted to connect it to my laptop via HDMI. I have used both the laptop and the cable with other TV's in the past with no problem but when I connect the two the laptop powers off as if the power has been cut. It will not boot when the two are connected and only happens when the TV is on. The laptop will boot into safe mode but it seems that HDMI out is disabled in safe mode so I cannot test it. I have checked and my graphics drivers are current. Hope someone can help! Thanks.

I did not know RCA still built TV's. Maybe something is wrong with it.

They do! It seems odd that it would actually shut the laptop down though.
