    Hi,

    I've recently moved into a a new house and want to mount the TV onto an internal wall. I have consulted the Survey we had done and it states that "the internal walls are hard plaster with partition walls formed of masonry"

    What is the difference between an internal and partition wall? The wall I am looking to mount the tv onto separates the living room from the dining room.

    I cannot find any studs on the wall, so if I am drilling into masonry, what steps should I take to ensure the tv is secure?

    Thanks in advance.

    There won't be any studs. Studs are for plasterboard walls made of timber frames.

    Modern TVs weigh almost nothing, unless you have some monster thing or an old plasma.

    Screws, plugs and a drill will be fine

    Thanks all, appreciate the advice. I'll make sure I get some extra long screws and wall plugs.
