Q: Solved: Output Desktop HDMI to Laptop (which has HDMI input)

Hello guys!

I recently ran into a problem with my main LCD TV(I need to replace the power supply.) I use that LCD TV for my desktop computer, and right now all I have is my laptop. I use synergy to control both computers. However now it doesn't matter because I cannot see the desktop portion. Is there anyway for me to output my desktop computer to my laptop monitor?

Both my Desktop and Laptop have HDMI input. I also have the HDMI cord on hand right now I just don't know how I'd go about setting it up. I'd like to use synergy to control the desktop AND have it's output be on the laptop until my power supply arrives and I can fix my TV.

We recently purchased a Dell laptop and later found that we cannot transfer what is seen on the laptop screen to the TV using an HDMI cable (the cable works fine, as shown when used with my other laptop). What happens, though, is that we hear a noise on the laptop when both ends of the HDMI cable are plugged in, but the TV screen remains black.
What could be the problem?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I just bought a new laptop and it has an hdmi output on it. It is only an average laptop so the graphics card is pretty basic- i think its just the standard intel one.

When i connect my laptop to my 42" lcd screen and run it just off the TV, the video plays fine but about every 10 seconds or so it goes jumpy for a few seconds then back to normal.
however if i connect them and run both screens- the image on the tv is much smaller but plays fine. i'm thinking that when its outputting a larger image- that is causing the slowdown cause my graphics card can't handle it.

is there anyway to produce the 42" image without the slowdown?

thanks for the help

I'm trying to hook up my TV with my computer, and for the most part it's working. The video goes through and I get how to control it and everything. The only thing not working is the sound.

I'm using an HDMI to HDMI cable, and like I said the video is fine. Also, when the cable is plugged into my boyfriend's laptop, the sound comes out of the TV.

So this must mean the problem is with my computer specifically. Although, this computer is only a month old, so I wouldn't think anything is out of date.

I have no idea what's relevant, so I don't know what to post screenshots of, but I've read tons of other threads with the same issues but none of their solutions seem to work for me.

A:Realtek HDMI Output ATI HDMI Audio -Not Plugged In-

Info on your computer would help. We can only talk in generalites or suggestions without it. In most cases, if you have a full HDMI port with both audio and video, when you plug in an HDMI cable Windows changes the default audio playback device from the "Speakers" (your PC sound card) to "HDMI".

In your case the ATI (now called AMD) should be the device that is feeding the video and audio.

As your PC is only 1 month old, the PC vendor's tech support should be the ones to call since you haven't been able to find a solution to date.

So my Laptop does accept HDMI as Input to. But i dont know about any program, that can watch what is being put in. Does someone know one?

A:Laptop with HDMI Input, but no program to watch the Input

you can try any of the tuner software and see if that works. things like Windows Media Center, XBMC, MediaPortal, GBPVR.

video editing software like Adobe Premiere. the best, easiest, and cheapest bets would be to try the tuner software first.

Thanks to anyone who can help - I'm trying to display images on a Plasma HDTV tomorrow at a wedding reception ... no pressure

There is no output to my Panasonic Viera HDTV from my HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop using the HDMI port.

I am using a cable that is normally plugged into (and therefore currently working!) my HD Tivo. The TV is set to the input normally used by the HDMI cable for the tivo.

That pretty much answers your question. Usually HDMI, DVI and VGA are only output ports to feed a projector or external monitor. I haven't look for an adapter but maybe Computer Parts, Cables and Hard to Find Computer Accessories - has something or maybe one of the camera/video sites.

You could connect a the Blu-Ray that has the necessary cables to connect to your laptop to use as an HD screen. The whole point of the HDMI port is so you can basically use your laptop screen as an HDTV....and it actually could be an HDTV if you got a TV tuner that is HDMI compatable.

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!!

So I have tried everything. I update the drivers for both my graphics cards and they are both the latest drivers.

When I connect my TV to my laptop, the TV screen goes blank for a few seconds (normal) and then I get a searching for signals...and then a few minutes signal.

The laptop is a brand new Acer aspire v nitro. The TV is a much older Samsung one 40 inch LED. Model number: ua40d5003br

I tried the usual Windows + p, etc...but like my computer just refuses to detect the display. Settings says no other display detected, and control panel display settings only shows one display. I factory reset the TV and everything....still nothing.
I don't know how to use nvidia control panel to do this cos there is no display options I can see there and Intel HD graphics center doesn't detect the display either.

Any suggestions? The cable is 100% working and so is the TV. I don't really have any other way of testing the HDMI port on my laptop as the tv is the only output monitor I have.

For some reason, when I tried to connect my laptop to my HDTV with the HDMI cable today, it did not work. Normally, as soon as I plug the cable into my laptop, my display immediately switches to the TV, but now my computer is not even detecting an additional display, or the HDMI plug. It was even working fine yesterday, but today, nothing. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the graphics processor, setting the computer to second screen only, using a different cable, different TV port, all the usual stuff, but for some reason my laptop just will not detect the HDMI cable.

Here's the basic information for my computer:

The computer is an HP Pavilion g6 laptop. Thanks!

I have tried windows graphics drivers, lenovo drivers and intel drivers. To me there is not much difference between them but who knows.

I have tried everything that I can think of as far as settings go and on my tv as well. Nothing changes whatever I do. Does anyone know of any hardware compatibility between some vizio tvs and windows 7? I have seen one on the compatibility website for windows but it was not my tv. Mine is not listed. The model number for my tv is E3D470VX. Not sure what else to try. Next I guess I will call Vizio to see if they can work out the problem. Lenovo support doesn't know. Any suggestions would be nice.

I have an HP dv6500 laptop with NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS (HDMI output). I just bought a philips 8404 LCD TV.
When I try to connect the laptop to the LCD, nothing happens. I can't get any video displayed on the TV.
I know that both the cable and the TV HDMI port are fine beacuse when connected to the XBOX they work without a problem.
I can see the TV on the NVIDIA control panel, it is recognized as "Philips FTV", but when set to dual display nothing happens, and when set to use the philips tv only, the laptop screen goes black (as it should), but nothing on the TV.

I have the TV for few days now, weird thing is that one time (and one time only) I did manage to see the computer on the TV via the HDMI cable. I didn't do anything special - just clicked Fn F4 and it was there. but it only worked one time and I can't get it to work again (but at least I know the HDMI port on the laptop is also fine). When I connect the cable to the TV I do hear the "windows new item detected" sound on the computer, so there is a connection but no picture at all.

I tried re-installing the NVIDIA drivers but nothing helps.
Any help or suggestion would be appreciated...I waited for an HDTV for a long time and now I finally have it but without the PC link it's rather futile

I have a strange feeling that re-installing windows7 would solve it (as it does for most things ), but I'm trying to avoid this annoying lengthy process...

I ran over to CompUSA and purchased a VGA to HDMI Converter box. Set me back $100 not to mention the cables to hook it all up.

Once I got home, I followed the instructions in the converter box. I turned off both devices... plugged in the wires... turned on the computer and set dual output... turned on the TV and set to HDMI input. The TV says no signal. And, yes... the converter box is plugged in an turned on as well.

I know the VGA output works on the computer because we use it at work all the time. At work, we use a VGA output converter that has to connect to a USB as well that sends the video over ethernet.

I've tried messing around with display settings as far as resolution, etc., but can't get anything to happen.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Windows automatically updated last night before shutting down. When I turned on the computer this morning, the HP w2207h monitor was not functioning properly. Each time I rebooted, I received the message "HDMI Input: No Input Signal" before the monitor went to sleep.

I have also plugged the monitor into another computer, using the same cable, and both worked just fine. The hp monitor also functions in the utility mode. Problem seems to exist only when Starting Windows.

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

(Note 3) Simultaneous output for DVI-D and HDMI is not supported.

What I'm trying to do is output just my sound to the receiver via HDMI cable, but still use the DVI to my monitor for video. From the note above taken from the MB specs, sounds like this is not possible.

This is new business to me and wondering how others do this, seems little information I can find. I am ordering a HDMI to DVI cable so I can disconnect the DVI cable from the computer and instead run both video and sound through HDMI to the receiver, then the video to the monitor. Hoping this works.

If all fails then I am relegated to separate digital through S/PDIF optical link, to my receiver. According to the experts this is less than ideal since now, the multi-channel dolby and DTS signals can only be received via HDMI.

Wondering if I get a Blu-ray player for my computer how this is going to all work out. Hoping that HDMI to DVI cable does the trick.

Anyone with experience with this kind of set-up and the aforementioned hardware greatly appreciated.

And Happy NEW YEAR!

A:Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.

If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

I am considering buying an HDMI splitter to get around a problem I now have when streaming music only from the Internet. Currently I have about a 15 ft. cable running from the HDMI output on my computer to my Samsung TV. With this setup everything works fine. I can watch Youtube videos or Netflix movies. The thing that I don't like is that if I want to just stream music for several hours, I have to leave the TV on since the audio connection from the TV to my receiver is not a pass thru. It is only live when the TV is on. I am wondering if I can use an HDMI splitter to solve this problem. What I plan to do is to connect the computer HDMI output to the input on the splitter. Then use one of the splitter's outputs to go to the Samsung TV and the other one to go to my receiver via an HDMI-to-2 Channel Stereo Y-adapter. Just wondering if the connection to the non-HDMI device via the Y-adapter will upset the functioning of the splitter. What about the the EDID handshaking and HDCP signal that HDMI sources and displays need in order to function?

Old puter works with my LCD's input much better than new one. Old puter was on the LCD's PC input and the HDMI input, multi-monitor mode and worked pretty good. Now its connected to a CRT monitor and the RGB input via the vid cards S-video output. Fabulous HDTV picture since I figured out the adjustments, looks even nicer than when connected to HDMI input. Game works and loads fine.

New puter will only function properly with only the PC input. Full native res, nice pic but not the HDTV definition. When I add the HDMI input to do multi-monitors I do not get anything like with old puter. No desktop resize available for HDMI. Interferes with the PC input, 1080i drops to 30Hz refresh. 720p needs desktop resize, allowed only a very odd res that fits screen at 60Hz. Very unstable and will not load game.

Nvidia drivers and a Sony Bravia 40" LCD. Newer puter is HDCP and will not function as good as old, why? I should have no issues, new puter is way better than older one yet.............................................

Any thoughts?

hello all,  i have a hp dv6 7029wm laptop,  and the Hard drive is starting to fail pretty hard core, so i went today and bought a SSD for it,  
wait first let me say this,  the screen is gone *like cracked and all white with black spots all over cause it was dropped*
anyways, i installed the SSD onto another computer to install windows 7, which went smooth as possible,  i put the SSD into the laptop and powered it on i hear the windows sounds and all i can see little movement on the laptop screen, 
My main problem is when i plug the HDMI or the VGA in, nothing happens on either screen,  So i was wondering how can i go about getting this fixed so i can install the correct drivers and have a somewhat normally functional laptop.
ive tried installing the laptop drivers while the SSD was in another computer * does not work  computer just crashs due to wrong drivers being installed* 
I cant think of anything and time is ticking with this old hdd * which i am currently using. * yes i know not the best decision ive made.*
any ideas i can use?

Hey, i have an nVidia Geforce 9200 integrated graphics card in my Acer X1301 system (Windows 7 32 bit). Its being used as a home theatre system that has a plasma screen plugged in via HDMI cable and the tv is connected to a home theatre system via a optical cable.

I am having trouble getting the computer to send 5.1 audio... i have plenty of 6 channel movie files and DVD's but none of them play, if i look at the sound device in device manager 'High Definition Audio Device' it is set as the default and works find using stereo... the device details say that the max channels is 2, i have tried nVidia audio device drivers, Realtek HD device drivers but all only allow 2 channels, is there a way around this???

Ive spent the last 8 hours straight trying to fix this so any help would be great!!!

I have been trying for 2 week, to no avail, to connect an external monitor to extend my desktop to my ASUS ET2203 through an HDMI cable to an ASUS VE245HA. My graphics card is an ATI Radeon Mobility 4570.
I have:
updated the drivers and Catalyst Command Center
Changed cables
Attempted to force output, but the only output available i through VGA, and it will not output anything
Reset my whole PC to factory setting just in case
Spent over an hour with tech support, who claims it should simply plug and play.
Screwed with the output resolutions.

Nothing has helped.

When i connect the hdmi cable to the back of the PC, there is no automatic discovery in windows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I just bought myself a new Samsung 42 HDTV to use with my ATI Radeon HD 4350(?)

Question is, does my pc now output its graphics in HDMI, or only when i watch HD movies through it? I've looked and looked but no dice so i thought i'd ask you bunch of experts

A:HDMI Output?

Your PC outputs it's video signal via whatever cable is connecting the graphic card to the display. If you have it connected via HDMI then your PC is outputting the video via HDMI. HDMI is just the name of the interface. Whether you're watching HD movies or not, the signal is still being output through HDMI. Your PC doesn't output "HDMI". If it's connected with HDMI, then it outputs in "digital" as HDMI is a digital interface.

Can you use the keyboard fn key + another key (whichever one allows you to output the video to another screen)? If you don't know what I'm talking about, there is a keyboard combination which shows a screen that says computer only, duplicate, extend, or projector only. This allows you to direct the video, so you could have the screen show on both the computer and the tv, just the tv, just the computer, etc. It is the fn key + one of the f keys. Mine is f7, but yours probably isn't the same. Just try messing around with the fn key + one of the f keys to get the duplicate, extend, computer only, projector only screen.

But when I come back to it and hit the space bar or move the mouse to wake it up my monitor gives me a "No HDMI input" message and I have to turn off the power at the rear of the box and then turn it on and turn on my comperter again to get any picture.

I have purchased a Lenovo SL500 with a single HDMI output. I tried connecting it to my Hitachi 42" plasma tv, but can't see any picture on the plasma. When I switch to the appropriate input on the tv, the laptop makes the sound indicating it found the device, and the same happens if I switch to any other TV input, I hear the sound again indicating that the laptop recognizes the device is disconnected. In short, the laptop knows when the tv is connected, so I know there is appropriate connectivity between the two. I fiddled with the function keys for external display, but still nothing on the tv. Any help would be appreciated.

Is there anyway for me to have my computer automatically switch to HDMI sound output when it detects the HDMI video output? This problem i am facing when i upgraded the driver from 12.3 version to the latest one and its really strange that i am facing this issue with new drivers

This used to work for me automatically when i use old version i.e. 12.3 drivers, but now i have to manually set it to default every time i change the output. Please help me out here appreciate it.

A:Ati readon HDMI output ?

Normal Windows operation is to switch the default audio playback device from the Speakers to the HDMI whenever a cable is plugged into the HDMI port on a video card.

Are you leaving the HDMI cable plugged in all the time? Maybe that is the reason.

Otherwise, go to the Device Manager, Sound section and RIGHT click on the entry for the HDMI audio. Then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the HDMI sound. If there were some type of Windows corruption with the HDMI sound, this will fix it.

Hello, I recently bought a Sapphire hd4890 and was briefly able to use the card's built in audio function via an hdmi cable to my television. I stopped for roughly a week and when I next tried to use the sound again, it didn't work. Within that period of time, I installed some Realtek drivers for my audio so I could have that cool function where when a new device is plugged in, it is detected and a menu comes up. This shouldn't pose any problem with my previous setup explained though, should it? When I right click the volume function in the Quick Launch area, and go to "Playback Devices", I am able to see my ATI High Definition Audio Device (with a picture of my television) but it says below, that it is not plugged in (im running windows 7 if that offers any help).

Hi there,

When connected via HDMI the screen shows the POST/BIOS however the sides are cut off. Then it shows the 'starting windows' screen but after this it cuts off and shows 'no signal'.

I have a Gigabyte GA-EG45M-DS2H motherboard with an Intel G45/G43 Express Chipset and all of the drivers are up to date.

I spoke to someone from Intel who looked into the issue further and thought that the problem was that the driver wasn't picking up the digital part of the TV as it wasn't reading the EDID properly. He couldn't however offer a solution.

Hi, I recently bought a T.V. from a relative. First attempt to connect my laptop to it through HDMI, my laptop screen goes black and the T.V. reads "Not supported". I unplugged the HDMI, the laptop screen remained black and could only be fixed with a hard reboot.
No progress has been made, however I've started to pinpoint where the issue lies by testing some things out:

I have had my friend plug his laptop into the T.V, that worked fine, so the only possible issue with the T.V. is simply outdated compatibilities, yet a newer laptop should be able to display something that an older t.v. could recognize.
I have tried using win+p a few times to change the display mode before connecting the HDMI cable into the laptop.
I have tried my laptop on my friends monitor, it worked immediately without having to change any settings.
I believe the main issue is in the way my laptop is sending display info to the T.V, possibly the resolution or screen refresh rate? However, it is incredibly difficult for me to troubleshoot this without any help from someone with experience in this field as my screen goes entirely black as soon as I connect the HDMI cable.

I've done some googling, people seem to have similar problems but I've yet to find an answer that works for me.

A:HDMI output not supported?

Get a hold of your freind's laptop and check his display settings:Right click desktop > Screen Resolution : note his Resolution setting, then
Click Advanced Settings > Monitor Tab : note his Screen Refresh Rate & Colors

Now go into your laptop and see if you have the same settings.

I have an Asus G73SW that I have been playing games with via the HDMI on my TV. It has worked fine for a while now. Today, it will not work.

It will give the Windows device sound when I plug in the cable (doo duu!) but the screen on my TV will not change. It remains "No Signal." I tested the HDMI port on the TV via my DVD player, and it's working correctly. I also replaced the cable thinking there might be some interruption, but nothing changed.

It went to:
''Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution''
and tried to "Detect" and it shows "1|2. Multiple Monitors" but still nothing on the TV.
I have not installed any updates or drivers etc. Maybe I pushed the wrong FN combo in my sleep? FN/F8 shows the "Laptop" on the first press, on second press, it shows "HDMI" and the laptop screen goes blank, but no signal goes through to the TV. Previous to today, when I plugged in the HDMI, it auto detected and I never had to cycle through FN/F8.

Edit: I installed the latest Nvidia Driver setup and there was no change. I also restarted with the HDMI plugged in, but it only displayed the same "No signal." Windows mobility center does recognize the Display as being connected.

Hello everyone,
I have a problem with my HDMI output. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525, running Vista Home Premium 32bit. I recently discovered that I can hook my laptop to my 60in LG Plasma display via HDMI and do homework large and in charge. Unfortunately, it has stopped working.

Everything worked fine for a few days, I just plugged my cable into the back of the tv, clicked "Connect to Display" in my "Personalize" window from the desktop right-click drop-down menu and everything worked perfectly. I have not adjusted the refresh rate or resolution or any other setting for that matter.

When I came home from school today I repeated all the same steps but now when I plug the cable into the computer, the sound (when you plug into a port aka. dooDEE, I know, I'm nuts, just say it to yourself) keeps going back and forth between plugged in and unplugged (DEEdoo). Repeatedly over and over as if I would keep plugging it in and unplugging it again. (As if there is a problem with a driver)

I have searched all through the device manager for !'s and disabled the HDMI Audio Output Codec then re-enabled, as well as reset my plasma display to default settings. The personalize panel also cycles through "Display Connected" and "No Display Detected" during this time.

Please, if you're a guru, extend some help, if you're gonna ask if the tv is plugged into the wall, don't waste our time. Any help from knowledgable sources will be much appreciated ... Read more

A:HD5870 HDMI to TV no output

On my system, if I plug in my cables to send a signal (s-video) to my TV it doesn't work unless I lower the screen resolution to 1024x768 or lower (which kind of sucks, but it gets the job done).

I would like to know if it is possible to get this working:

I have an HP G60 Notebook with an Nvidia Geforce 8200 M running with Vista basic 32 bits.
I have an HDMI output plug, an HD TV (CRT monitor) with component and s-video inputs).
I got a cable with an HDMI plug on one end and component plugs at the other end.

When I plug my computer on the monitor via this cable, I get absolutely no reaction, not even in the peripheral panel.

I get a short slight sound on my TV though, but nothing is showing and no further sound is heard.

I try to expand my display to a second screen into Windows display panel, but it does not do anything.

I try to force TV detection in NVidia but the box that I should tick for that is grey and I cannot activate this.

My drivers are up to date and I have tried loging in as Administrator under Vista (after having activated the admin account in cmd). No improvement.

Is it just not possible or does anybody have any idea?

Thanks in advance.

After a Windows 7 Starter update my LT 40 Gateway no longer sends a signal to my Samsung TV via HDMI. The only way is if I shut them off and turn the TV on as the pc boots but it keeps reverting to the laptop screen after a while. It was working fine until the last security updates. How can it be fixed?

A:No HDMI output to second monitor

I guess it was an intermittent problem from a bad HDMI cable.

I have Windows 10 64-bit  (not suported I know )  but also Windows 7 64-bit (different partitions). Just obtained secondhand GNR TS702 monitor . It is plug and play no drivers. First question then is what graphics drivers should I have ? There are three listed at AMD High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver    299.2 MB    Oct 18, 2012     AMD High-Definition Graphics Driver     8.882.2.0 Rev.    339.0 MB    Oct 24, 2011    and Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver. Does this depend on the processor ? It is Intel B960. Second question, should I expect system audio to come out of the HDMI  port and work with the speakers on the monitor?  Windows Sound sees an HDMI playback device but nothing connected to it, even when a DVD-VI cable from the monitor is connected to that port. Do I need and special drivers for HDMI audio, if I happen not to have a monitor that supports it, or is that HDMI port video only? Thanks  a lot.

So I had a faulty fan that had become very loud and annoying, so I disconnected it. I powered my computer back up and just got a black screen through the hdmi on my gpu (worked fine before removing fan). I switched over to the dvi on my gpu and got a display. I have tried fresh install of drivers, I have checked all hardware and cables are seated properly. I have tried 2 monitors and different hdmi cables.
I have also had 2 monitors plugged in to hdmi and dvi, I then checked nvidia control panel which detected both ports and both monitors but the hdmi still shows black.
Any help would be appreciated.
The gpu is a nvidia gtx 570

Hey all,

I have a problem with the HDMI output on my laptop. I've tried to research the problem and for the most part the answer is to set the default playback device to the HDMI output. I do this, and even when I click the 'Test' button, the bell rings through the speakers of the TV, along with other system noises like error popups. However, when I try to watch movies or listen to music there is no sound from the TV. I can even be playing a song, press the 'Test' button, and it rings just fine.... but no music. It's making me and I need some help!

A:No Sound on HDMI Output to TV

I solved this by going in to the sound options on my computer (which you can access in your control panel or right click bottom of desktop speaker) then set your sound default as HDMI. thats what i did worked a treat
