DVI-D (monitor) to HDMI (PC)

Q: DVI-D (monitor) to HDMI (PC)

I just ordered a new PC that supports VGA, DVI and HDMI. My monitor however supports RGB (which I am currently using) and also DVI-D with HDCP. I am wondering, should I go buy a DVI-D (for monitor) to HDMI (for pc) cable or just DVI to DVI cable. I spent a lot of money (imho) on a new cpu, and want to make sure I get the best graphical experience from my gaming. The video card that comes with the cpu is the ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB. I would like to avoid buying a new monitor for now (though I realize I could probably use an upgrade, but I would like to stick it out with my SyncMaster 906BW if I can: http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/samsung-syncmaster-906bw/4507-3174_7-32327972.html ) Any suggestions on how to set this up with proper cables would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!:grinthumb

I'd buy a DVI cable. That way your using the best signal you can for gaming. Your graphics and your monitor support this lead.

Hi,

I have an Asrock ION 330 HT BD with a Sony Bravia 720p attached (HDMI to HDMI). When I start up my PC, the screen remains black. Only after I plug in a second monitor, both screens work just fine. When I pull the second monitor out, the Bravia also stops getting a signal. Seems a bit weird.. How can I get it to work with just the Bravia attached?

Thanks,
Gijs

A:HDMI to HDMI only working with second monitor attached

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Have you made sure your graphics card driver is up to date?

Have you tried starting your PC up in safe mode and seeing if the problem still persists?

Please ensure you have done both of these and then post back; it would also be helpful if we knew your system specifications which you can fill in under 'User CP'.

Also does the task bar appear on the primary monitor or secondary monitor?

Hi,

So eagerly i tought to buy this cool looking laptop for a huge $2000 i needed it to output to a hdmi monitor ot TV so sometimes i could see movies as well, now i had to buy the special DA200 dell adaptor and in the past 3 weeks it`s been a complete nightmare, i WAS NEVER ABLE to make it work permanently. The chat support was no help at all usually simply resuming to try and replace the part but i do think the part is good and i didn't feel like waiting 2 weeks for it to ship from china.

The ethernet and usb work on the DA200 adaptor , EXCEPT HDMI.  SOMETIMES it would work briefly until next restart, i had tried everything ever available on the internet. The laptop is running Windows 10 (as it`s restricted to that version, i tried to install other versions with lots of issues and compatibility issues) so  i have installed reinstalled and installed different versions of the video driver for all possible windowses and none worked. what did work was very brief until next restart and that usually happened when i had a fresh windows install, after the first restart i will get a non working hdmi again.  

I have tried several hdmi cables so i know it`s not the hdmi cable or the tv ot the monitor. and nobody seems to be able to help!!

A:Dual monitor setup hdmi to vga on 2nd monitor shows nothing

Dave welcome to the Seven Forums.

That cable won't work unless the VGA port on the computer/laptop supports digital (highly unlikely), as VGA is an analogue signal and HDMI is digital. To get it to work you would need some kind of converter not an adapter, which that cable essentially is.

Assuming this is your monitor,

is says it has a VGA port on it. If it does then just use a plain old VGA cable.

Currently the speaker symbol has an x next to it, when I click it it tries to fix the problem.

HDMI and DVI are both digital and your monitor probably is only able to switch between analog (VGA) and digital so you cannot switch between HDMI and DVI>>> That's my guess.

Hi, I connected my Fujitsu laptop to the "dining room" Tv (Its a cheap technika from Tesco 22") via HDMI cable, with immediate results.

I then tried to connect the laptop to my new monitor Asus VE228HR 21.5". This is my main monitor connected to my desktop PC via VGA with a dual connection to a 2nd monitor. My desktop dual boots Ubuntu & windows.

(My desktop PC has only VGA connection. No DVI or HDMI) Graphics nvidia dual Quadro nvs290

The problem is I have no access to change the settings on the monitor from VGA to HDMI unless I power up my desktop PC.

When I do this and bring up the monitor menu to enter input select, the ist option VGA is highlighted but when I try to move down to select HDMI the menu disappears therefore I cant change it. Any ideas welcome and appreciated thanks

HDMI does not appear in the BIOS of the desktop PC. Simply not there so of course no options to enable or
disable. Dont know if this affectes the properties of the monitor.

So my dad ruined Chritmas.... He opened our new Sony Bravia 40" LCD early This one has a VGA port on the back which I would use with my computer, but the maximum resolution supported is 1400*1050 @ 60HZ (per the user manual). And, no, it doesnt work, I tried. This would be fine, but its not a widescreen resolution and the supported resolutions that are widescreen are way too low. So now to the question; If I use a DVI-HDMI cable from my computer, will the tv support a picture in its native resolution, 1920*1080? The manual directly says: "do not connect a PC to the TV's HDMI input. Use the VGA input instead when connecting a pc." Seems fishy to me.... Hopefully someone knows something and can help me??

Hey guys, I know this isnt a playstation forum but You guys have always helped in the past.
So my problem is that I have a playstation (I do have a cool gaming pc, but i wanted a cool blu-ray player too)
Now for the real problem - I have it hooked up to my Benq G2420HD, and it has been happily chugging away at full HD (1920x1080) for awhile, but then all of a sudden it stopped outputting to that resolution outputting at all, so I researched and then found how to reset to low resolution (by holding the power button for 5 seconds when you turn it on) so then I started testing and the max it will go is 1080i (1680x1050) nice, but not full HD whenever I do it it now goes all garbled and nothing displays. So I updated the software and firmware and same issue, so I bought a new HDMI cable (thought I'd need another in the future anyway) and even went and tried on a full HD tv, which still didnt work.
So I rang up Sony after all this and the toolbox says that he cant help me because I used it on a monitor and it was designed for TV - I think that is complete bull because it worked before and now it doesnt, warranty me sony?
anyone think of anything else that I can do apart from taking a lawsuit against sony - I know PC is so much easier to work with, but it would be good if I could get sony on a dos or terminal level and fix some stuff up.

Sony's a bunch of ass. Their products look cool, sure, but once you buy something they promptly try to screw you on the margins and that includes restricting cross-platform compatibilities. I guaran-damned-tee you that full HD would work if your "computer monitor" was a Sony.

Hi,

I currently want to connect a 2nd monitor to my computer. My graphics card has one VGA output, which is what my main monitor is connected to, and an HDMI output too.

The other monitor I have only has a VGA input, I'm wondering if there's a cable or converter I can get so that I can connect my 2nd VGA monitor to the HDMI output?

Thanks

I think,as your 2nd monitor is not hdmi compatable then your hdmi out form your computer may not give hi def capabilities.
You can get a converter transcoder here http://www.amazon.co.uk/HDfury-1080P-HDMI-Converter-Transcoder/dp/B000SOPWS8 that might do the trick. Could be right for your situation.

Right so I have a problem...I have a theatre production based on technology and wanting to build some sort of monitor wall!
I have one laptop, only a HDMI port but maybe another laptop with VGA.
Then I have up to13 monitors but only VGA connection.
So far...I have bought a 4 port VGA splitter and connected with a HDMI to VGA cable which nothing appeared on the screen.
This morning I bought a USB to VGA adapter, got one monitor to work but connecting to the 4 port splitter and nothing happened.
I would like to extend the screens but duplicated is good too! Any advice or product recommendations would be great!!
 

A:vga/hdmi/usb monitor extending!

Hi sam_skinner1, and welcome to TSG.

A simple VGA splitter would show the exact same thing on all four connected monitors as being fed into the splitter's input. A passive VGA splitter, without any kind of internal amplification, might overload the video source with four monitors connected to it. This would result in dark or washed out video and possible loss of sync.

Any kind of a simple cable with an HDMI plug on one end and a VGA plug on the other end, would not work as an HDMI <-> VGA converter. HDMI video is pure digital video and VGA video is pure analog video. You would need active, powered electronics, to convert between the two types of video.

There are commercial video wall controllers on the market that will take a single video source and spread it across multiple monitors. Here is a link to one such company that makes them.

Hello! This is my very first post on this site. I was looking for a good place for tech support and this was recommend, so now I'm here!

Alright - here's the story.

A few months ago, my neighbor moved. They gave away some of their stuff, one of which is a ViewSonic VG2427wm monitor, which was given to me. At first glance, it didn't look like much. Then I decided to some research on it, and it turns out that it's actually an HD monitor back from 2009. It even displays in full 1080p! After I found that out, I wanted to try out my Wii U with it . . . That's when I ran into a pretty big roadblock. Turns out that even though it can do HD, the oh so sensible people at ViewSonic decided to NOT incorporate an HDMI port! (Weird, right?)

Anyway; it has two input ports - a DVI-D port and a VGA port. I've been using my laptop with the monitor through the VGA port, and it displays at 1920x1080. Little did I know that VGA is quite archaic when compared to DVI and HDMI. I just went on vacation to the States (I live in the Bahamas) - and I was able to pick up a really affordable (yet well-reviewed) DVI-HDMI (male-to-male) adapter cable, made by ULTRA. Since I couldn't bring my monitor with me, I had to wait to get all the way back home here in the Bahamas.

I have recently hooked up two Samsung Syncmaster 2243s to my HP Compaq laptop at work (waiting on an email for the specific model for the Compaq and Nvidia Quadro video card). Unfortunately, the second monitor says "Check Signal Cable" and will not display anything. Here's how I have it set up:

The first monitor is hooked up to the laptop on the VGA port and works fine. I have used extended display with my laptop screen and Syncmaster with no trouble. I hooked up the second monitor to the HDMI port in my laptop with a DVI-HDMI cable. At no point (eg. when restarting) does the monitor show anything but "Check Signal Cable".

I have updated my drivers (windows and Nvidia) and tried removing my display adapter and restarting, forcing the computer to reinstall the drivers. I have rebooted with the second monitor attached and unatatched with no luck.

The key point is that the computer recognizes the second monitor (with the Nvidia control panel I can turn off the laptop screen and set both monitors as my extended display - second monitor still says no signal although the first monitor, which works, behaves as if it were part of an extended monitor). Further, the second monitor works normally, as it was used on a previous laptop via VGA. What could cause the "no signal cable"? I did buy a second DVI-HDMI cable with the same result. Any help would be most appreciated.
 

A:Second monitor HDMI no signal

typically, dual monitors is not done with VGA, or if so, is implemented using a 'Y' cable.

A video card built to support dual video out is usually DVI with Y or two DVI ports on the card.

Hi guys... It was just this morning when I found that my DVI - HDMI cable was unplugged, it seemed that my Mom was kind of "super cleaning" my room, and she unconsciously removed the cable from my Samsung SyncMaster 2494. When I get to plug it back I find that the computer won't detect the monitor using the DVI - HDMI cable (Which has been used continuously for the past year and a half).

I decided to connect the computer via VGA... Poof, it works... Then I decide to test the DVI - HDMI cable with another device such as my Xbox 360. I plug it in, turn it on, and poof it works! I got astonished thinking that the output of my video card was damaged, and decided to test it with 2 more HDMI capable computers... Each of them DID NOT emit the signal nor detected the display.

I did a reset on the monitor, recycled the power, and I don't know what to do know... My Dell XPS M1530 (8600M GT) won't detect my monitor via HDMI anymore!.....

Hi, when I was studying abroad, I was using a Samsung B2330 LCD monitor with the system which specs I have mentioned below. I have an HDMI cable that I used with that monitor and it worked like a breeze no problems. I even connected my PS3 to the same monitor but with a separate cable and that worked with no problems as well.

When I went back home I took the PC but I left the monitor behind. That's because I have the exact same model monitor at home. I connected my PC to the home monitor with HDMI but it doesn't display anything at all. The same problem with the DVI cable (To be honest I never used the DVI cable with the monitor abroad). I do get signal from the RGB cable without fail. Oh yeah, I also use the same HDMI cable I used abroad. At first I thought it was the cable's fault but I get the same result with 2 other HDMI cables as well. Plus all 3 HDMI cables work fine with my PS3, which also doesn't work with the home monitor. Now it cant be the monitor's HDMI port fault because my brother plays his XBOX360 on the same monitor through HDMI without problems.

The main problem is i'm not getting signals from both HDMI and DVI even though all my drivers are up to date. It cannot be the computer's HDMI port fault as well because it works when I connect it to my 40" Samsung LCD TV. I did not change the configuration of my PC at all from when I came back home and when I was abroad. Please help. Thank you.

Sorry i'm not really experienced with this but if the Elite has the standard component cables too you should be able to plug the Red and White sockets in to get sound, but i'm not sure, this requires an opinion of someone more experienced than me.

I have a new PC and I am not getting any connection to the monitor I have tried with a hdmi and a dvi cable I don't have the third a d sub. The monitor says no hdmi connection when plugged in, and the same on dvi, PC was running when picked up ,I did not see which cable they were using. Can all three connection types be used at any time or do they need to be switched between them when the PC is on.
Any advice would be great!!

Hi, welcome to TSG

If this is a branded system please provide the make and model number.
If this is a custom built system please provide the make and model of the motherboard.

Are you using on-board graphics or a graphics card?
If a graphics card please provide the make and model.

Do you have a different computer you can use to check the monitor is functioning correctly.

As the monitor has multiple inputs have you checked whether it is set to auto-detect or are you manually changing the connection type via controls/buttons on the monitor?

Please provide the make and model of the monitor if you are not sure how to switch between settings.

Hello,

I have two Hanns G monitors model name : HL273HPB one is connected via VGA cable with they other connected via a HDMI cable but it will not detect the HDMI monitor. There is no issues with the monitors or the cable as they work on my other machine. I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 graphics card and it says in NVIDIA GeForce experience that the driver is up to date. I went into the display settings to Detect both monitors but only 1 Monitor shows, the VGA connected monitor.

I have checked other threads on here but not found my solution. I have tried to give as much detail as required based on what was asked in other threads so apologies if I've been vague. Will reply asap to any further info needed.

Help plz.

Thanks

I just bought a new 23inch Samsung Monitor (S23B370). It have full HD support and also have an HDMI port. I bought a HDMI cable which have HDMI on both ends. I have a VGA (Nvidia 210) which also have an HDMI port. I connected the monitor's HDMI out to the VGA's HDMI port with the new cable and booted. Nothing came. I even set the Monitor's settings to HDMI. But nothing happened. It says check display cable. Why is this? How to fix it? Have I done something wrong?

Hi Everyone! Been a while since I posted. I recently purchased a new TV. I put my old TV (2 years old, Dynex 42" LCD) in my bedroom. I bought a new HDMI cable and plugged into the TV at HDMI 1 and into the back of the computer. There is only one HDMI port on the back of the PC, which is a Dell studio XPS that I bought a year ago. It is win 7 with Nvidia GE Force GTS 240. After I plugged everything in, I turned on my PC and the TV. The TV has the blue "no input" screen, and the PC didn't detect it. I went into the display settings by going Control Panel- Appearance and Personalization- Display- Screen Resolution. I clicked on detect, and it didn't detect it. I clicked on the picture to add a monitor and selected "Multiple Monitors". Resolution is 1024x768 and the displays are set as duplicate. I went into the control panel for NVIDIA and clicked a link for "Display not shown". It opened a window to perform a rigorous display detection and a box that popped up said "Rigorous display detection was unable to find additional displays. However, some televisions are not detectable like computer displays. If this is the case, and you are certain your television is connected, the television connection can be enabled and your television will be available. Would you like the television connection enabled?"

I clicked YES!

I just got a Hanns-G HH281 28" HDMI LCD monitor.

Currently I'm using VGA converted with an adapter to DVI, cause my video card does not have VGA ports.

The monitor came with an HDMI to DVI wire, I tried using it, but I would just get a message saying it can't find the signal.

My video card is a GeCube Radeon X1950Pro 512MB which does not have HDMI nor is it HD. Is that the reason?

Also, if that is the problem, can someone link me a cheap Radeon HD card that is as good if not better than my current card? I've been thinking about upgrading to one of those cheap $35 Radeon HD cards from Newegg, but the problem is, I don't know a whole lot about video cards, like I have absolutely no idea how many stream processors my video card has, etc.

I know the majority of the cheap Radeon HD cards have like only 80 steam processors and the expensive ones have like 800. I don't know if that's a big deal or not.

Any help is appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Using HDMI With Monitor

Depends on what you do as far as graphics go.
Is it just for video or gaming too?
If just video,a 3450 would do.
If you're a gamer,you probably want at least a 4650.

The hdmi port may be the secondary input on the monitor.
Check the monitor menu to see if you can switch inputs.

Hello all,

I'm not very informed on computers (although I try and poke around for info) so I'm not sure if I simply made a faux pax or what.

I tried connecting my 24" Dell monitor into my desktop using an hdmi cable. It works, but it also reduced my screen size by an inch or two. Like a black box around my screen. I've used a vga cable through a DVI converter and it worked fine... is it simply not possible to use the HDMI to connect to the monitor?

(I tried it because both my desktop and monitor have an HDMI hookup... so why not?)

I'd really like to get this to work, so any help would be appreciated

Welcome Rhod!

Try experimenting with your screen resolution and refresh rate. Right-click on the desktop and select Screen Resolution.

You can also try updating your graphics card drivers. Go into Device Manager, find your card, and select Update drivers from the right-click menu.

Hope this helps,

Sorry if this appears really stupid but I dont know much about graphic cards.

I installed a new graphics card EVGA Nvidia Ge Force 610. It has 3 ports DVI. HDMI & VGA.
I have 2 monitors. One is VGA only, and the main monitor is new and supports DVI. HDMI & VGA.

I though probably stupidly, that I could connect my main monitor to the HDMI port and the 2nd monitor to the VGA port and all would work fine.

After installation I decided to try just the main monitor first. I connected to the VGA port, installed the drivers and all is ok. I then changed the settings on the monitor to HDMI, plugged in the HDMI cable but just get a blue screen with a "No HDMI " box showing.

Please could someone tell me how to get the HDMI working.

Also Is this I though probably stupidly, that I could connect my main monitor to the HDMI port and the 2nd monitor to the VGA port and all would work fine.just stupid. Will I still need to use the DVI port with splitter cables to use dual monitors with extended display, as was my current setup.

Is there any way to make use of the HDMI and still have dual monitors. Thank you.

My HDMI cable works OK from laptop to TV. Its a BABZ HC007 BZ10714C high speed HDMItm cable with ethernet E321484

A:HDMI not recognised by monitor.

Did you remember to disconnect the VGA cable before switching to HDMI?

I have a feeling what you are running into is a hardware limitation of the card in that it can use either the DVI and HDMI or VGA port at the same time, but not the VGA and HDMI port at the same time. If that is the case the easiest solution is to pick up a DVI cable and you should be good to go. And no if that works you don't need a splitter of any kind to run dual monitors.

I've tried quite a lot of things but would be interested to know what your suggestions are.

Could be hardware damage. Vacuums create static electricity. Static destroys electronics.

Hello all,
Since I got my new GPU, I have been having a problem with my second display. When I want to turn it on(through Catalyst) as an extention to my main dispaly, it does turn on, but after about 5-10 minutes the colors turn negative and I have to disable and re-enable it in order for it to get back normal again. My GPU is a Sapphire Radeon HD7850 OC, and the second monitor is connected through HDMI. Last time I checked my drivers where up to date. Anyone knows why this happens and how to fix it ?

Thank you in advance!

A:Second Monitor turning negative(HDMI)

If it has two HDMI ports, try the other one.

Try another HDMI cable.

If still an issue after that, if that monitor has a different connection other than HDMI, I would try using it to verify it's not a an overall monitor issue and just HDMI failure, port on the monitor or the video card, either way, not reasonably fixed.

HDMI has me annoyed on my own rig, rather DVI, but only one on my 7950.

Could try underclocking or normal clocking in Catalyst also, just in case that OC has caused the problem.

Hey guys, for the past four years I've been running this computer, along with a 1024x768 Curtis monitor and a 1280x720 Vizio monitor. Up until now, I've had absolutely no problems with the dual monitor setup, both running off the GeForce 610.

Yesterday, however, the Vizio monitor, connected via HDMI, randomly stopped receiving input. The Curtis monitor (connected via VGA) still works fine.

What I've tried:

- Rebooting my computer, nothing. (I rebooted after all of the following attempts as well)
- Going to Screen Resolution and manually detecting another monitor. Nothing was detected.
- Going to Device Manager and scanning for hardware changes. Only the VGA monitor is listed as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", nothing about the HDMI monitor.
- Updating graphics drivers. I used the built in Windows driver updater, nothing. I used NVIDIA's site and downloaded the recommended driver, nothing.
- Switched the cables between the two monitors, the VGA monitor works while the HDMI monitor does not.
- Tested the HDMI cable with an Xbox, works fine (cable is working).
- System Restore to several days ago when both monitors worked, nothing.
- Booting in safe mode, nothing. (don't think this would work anyway... I tried...)
- Removing and cleaning graphics card, nothing.
- Attempting to detect the monitor via NVIDIA Control Panel, nothing.
(from here on out is random desperation, I really have no idea what's wrong)

Hey, I'm going to be headed off to college soon, and I'm switching from my old desktop to a new Razer Blade 2014, I am planning on still bringing my 2nd monitor to college and want to use it in my dorm room, My Monitor does not have a HDMI, but that is the only port on my Laptop. I thought this would be simple, because I was already running a HDMI to DVI-D on my desktop to my GTX 770 graphics card. While connected to my desktop, the monitor works normally. When I plug it into my laptop, I get nothing in response, The laptop will not detect the Monitor in screen resolution or in control panel. My monitor is a LG Flatron and my laptop is the Razer Blade 2014. I don't understand why it doesn't just plug and play like it did on my PC. Any help? Also, I am on windows 10 but the problem happened on Windows 8.1 aswell
 

A:Laptop will not connect to second monitor via HDMI

Has it ever worked? You may want to test using a different monitor and a true HDMI to HDMI cable, just to verify the laptop port functions properly.

Brand new mac mini. Want to use HDMI, but when I connect cable, boot up mac and turn on Monitor, the mac starts to go into new product mode, then quickly picture switches to 2 alternating graphic pictures of what looks to be 2 different computers. I gather this means monitor is looking for a suitable source?? By way of a test of the monitor, I hooked it up to a Macbook Pro using DVI and it worked fine. Just no luck with the HDMI. Thanks for any help.

I bought benq fp222wh which is HDMI compatible, so i hooked up my ps3 to the monitor, using my HDMI cable. I pressed input on my monitor to switch to HDMI mode, and changed settings on my ps3. the monitor remained its blue screen, it does not show the hdmi ps3 screen!!! the monitor is connected via DVI, if it helps. After reading some user reviews, my monitor model should be able to be switched back and forth(DVI, HDMI, DSUB) and should work fine.
it is also hdcp compliant, and so should be my ps3. do u think my monitor is a defect??
Can someone plz solve my problem??

Is it possible to get the menu of a VCR/DVD combo recorder to show on a laptop or computer monitor using a HDMI-HDMI lead?, the VCR/DVD unit has a HDMI socket as has my laptop. I tried using the old style RF lead into my HP HDX9120ea laptop which has a built in tv tuner but that didn't work through Windows Media Center.

Try clicking the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your monitor, click playback devices, your monitor should be listed there and you need to set it as default.

The WARNING IS: Samsung Monitors DO NOT WORK under HDMI with all Graphics Cards

To say I am disappointed with the Samsung Monitor I purchased recently is a gross understatement but in order to keep my post free of bad language, disappointed will have to do.

I have a Samsung LCD 21.5 B2230H / Model: LS22PUHKFW/XM

When I purchased the Monitor it did not come with an HDMI cable (I can see why now) I bought one but the HDMI connection would not work, I spoke with Samsung Service and they said it was the HDMI cable. I bought another HDMI Cable, an expessive BELKIN HDMI cable and it still did not work.
So I took the Monitor back to Samsung Service Centre, they had it a while and said it was repaired but did not even have the facility to test a HDMI Monitor with the computers at the service desk. I got the Monitor home and guess what? It still did not work!

As Samsung Malaysia PJ seem incapable of testing HDMI Monitors I returned the Monitor to the vendor, ALL-IT Hypermarket Sdn Bhd (Ikano Power Centre) yesterday. (Great Company by-the-way) ALTHOUGH THEY ESTIMATE SAMSUNG WILL TAKE 3 WEEKS TO GET MY MONITOR BACK!

At least ALL-IT had the facility to test the Monitor! They tried it with my PC, HDMI did not work, they tried it with their PC, and it worked. They changed the Graphics card in my PC, HDMI still did not work, they tried my PC with another HDMI Monitor, and it worked. All they seem to be able to prove is the HDMI connection of a Samsung B2230H does not work with an AS... Read more

Hi peeps, I have a T460 with Intel Graphics 520 and one HDMI port and no VGAs. I've been trying to connect a second monitor through the HDMI port, but the laptop does not even recognize the connection, let alone the screen. I was wondering if any of you had had similar issues. Thanks!

Hello,My monitor on my laptop will not display anything except when I turn it on where I have green lines down the right half of the screen but everything else is black. This last about 30 seconds and then my monitor remains black. I have attempted replacing the monitor however that one stays black and has no display either. Regardless of the screen I have attatched, I have no problems connecting it to my TV via HDMI and using it that way graphics wise. Upon closely inspecting the motherboard I have not seen any cracks or any other damage. Any insight on this problem would be very appreciated.

Very helpful forum so thanks in advance for addressing this -

I have an Asus laptop running Intel Display Audio and I have it connected to an external monitor via HDMI. I also have external logitech speakers, which for whatever reason, sound a lot better when plugged in to the monitor than the headphone jack of the laptop (which has a much muddier sound). I want to be able to play music when the monitor is off/sleep, however when I do that, obviously the sound turns off. The settings on the monitor were pretty basic and didn't see anything to change it. Is there any workaround?

A:Playing Sound via HDMI When Monitor Is Off

You could get an hdmi switch that separates out the audio. The one linked below is a example, there are cheaper alternatives too.

I purchased a new monitor and it looks great but I can't get the built-in speakers to function. The monitor has inputs for VGA, DVI, and HDMI and I currently have it connected to my video card via HDMI. The front panel audio jack is functioning and I am able to hear audio if I plug headphones in but unfortunately I don't have any external speakers. From the sound menu I have three playback options: Speakers, Realtek Digital Output, and my monitor. I would like to sort this problem out quickly so I can play some games without using earbuds.

A:No audio through monitor speakers via HDMI

Welcome splooge

Does the Monitor have any standard speaker jacks (for input) ?

I am looking to buy a new video card and a new monitor. I currently have a monitor with DVI output. I want to buy another with DVI output and make a dual monitor setup. But the video card I am looking at has HDMI and DVI. Will I be able to hook two DVI monitors up to that video card? (I think my motherboard also has DVI if that helps. Will the mobo and card DVIs work at the same time?)

Despite going through the basic steps in disabling any other playback device but my monitor, I am still having trouble getting any sound on my monitor. I have an Asus VS238H-P and it is plugged from my laptop by a HDMI cable. Here is what I currently have:




Any idea what is wrong? If any additional information is needed, I'd be glad to provide it to you.

A:No sound via HDMI to ASUS Monitor

tnguyen9175 welcome to the Seven Forums.

Is this the monitor?

http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/VS238H/

If so it doesn't have any speakers in it. What it has is a headphone jack on the back, which would require self powered speakers of headphones to get sound from it.

P.S. You also don't have the driver for the built in audio, as it is showing as "high definition audio device". It would show the proper name of whatever the built in audio is (Realtek, IDT, etc) with the proper driver installed.

I'm using my pc monitor, a TV in HDMI format...

And well i have all the Audio settings disabled and the AMD HDMI Output one set as Default.

I still don't have any Sound...

Does anyone know if it could be a hardware issue? Or Possibly my HDMI Cables?

It worked in the past, a few months back, but recently when i set it up again...
I don't have any sound, I even restarted... and i got no sound from the reboot?

If anyone has this problem, or something similiar to it... I'd appreciate your input.

And thanks in advance....
