It more annoying than a problem.

Im running my acer aspire x3200 through a sony HD TV with a HDMI cable.

now when ever I update my realtek it disables the HDMI cable and assumes im using speakers so i had to disable the realtek high def audio speakers setting (as it wasnt plugged in)

now when ever I turn on the comp it thinks no audio is plugged in so I have to always click on the device advanced settings within realtek manager and make it search for it. of course it picks it up but its annoying now.

any suggestions on how to set it once and for all on my HDMI cable?

Hope somebody out there can help. I have recently bought a new samsung TV after my old one gave out. My new tele does not have a RGB port to connect a VGA cable to so I can use my PC on it like my old one did, it only has HDMI in and my PC has only VGA out. I bought a VGA to HDMI converter box from maplin and when I start up my PC the picture appears on my TV as it goes through its boot up. It displays windows is preparing but then, at the point windows would normally open, the signal to my TV dies and it just displays the no signal message on the screen. If I start thr PC in safe mode, windows boots up fine and the signal does not drop out. I am using windows 7. Does anybody know how I fix this?

Hello and welcome Lovett mate some system specs please System Info - See Your System Specs
it is hard to work on the problem unless we know what we are dealing with. Sounds to me like a graphics driver or hardware problem.
But for starters can you run this and send back what the temps are in normal mode and perhaps running a scan for malware.

Hello everyone!

First of all i would like to thank everyone for the answers and help you share and i am new to this forum. I tried to search before making this thread but i havent found any answer that could help me.

I just bought 2 LCD monitors ( Acer and Asus) they all work perfectly But i have a problem, a huge one. The Asus monitor refuses to work when the VGA (acer) is connected and vice versa.

The Asus is a 23" LCD monitor, its connected via HDMI.
The Acer is a 18,5" LCD monitor, its connected via VGA.
My laptop is an Acer 7736, 2,20 GHZ, 4 GB RAM, 1GB graphic card from ATI Radeon.
So i beg you please to help me, i have tried everything possible, been trying for the last 7 hours and i even downloaded Ultramon but it doenst work either.

I only want them to work in same time, what can i do?

Here is the link, i even tried updating the drivers on the graphic card but nothing works.
Thanks in advance!!!

A:HDMI trouble when VGA connected

A lot of laptops do not have the ability to go to more than two monitors (Edit: this is including laptop as monitor). You can probably have both work if you close your laptop lid, otherwise, only the laptop and VGA or laptop and HDMI will work. (Edit: if you close laptop lid, the two monitors VGA and HDMI will work but only with laptop monitor closed)

I think there is a piece of hardware you can purchase that can turn a USB port into and external display adapter, but I don't know if it was GFX card specific or if your card needs or supports a particular piece.

My laptop suffers from this as well. I tried it and confirmed it after seeing issue on this forum a few weeks ago.

I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1435dx laptop. TV is Dynex LCD (one of those no name brand ones ) I checked the drivers on the laptop, they all seem to be up to date. However when I go to Control panel-Sound-Manage audio devices, there is no icon with an HDMI label to select for playback device. How do I add the driver for HDMI (to select)?

I have scanned (and tried) numerous suggestions on this type of a problem on different sites on the web (including this one, under a different thread)

Any suggestions, other than try a new cable?
Thank you in advance.

First of all sorry if it's not that Windows related!
So the problem is that my LCD TV has a scrambled picture when my computer is turned on and connected to the TV via HDMI. I got analog signal TV connection but the picture is fine while the PC is turned off. Yeah I know I should get digi TV but till then I would like to sort this out. The TV is a Samsung 40" LCD model LE40A336. It has 2 HDMI input ports. Tryed both with same results. BTW if I remember it right, I had the PC connected via VGA last weekend and didn't have this problem. I will double check it in the morning.
Maybe I'm using wrong setting with PC... wrong Hz or sth. Anyhow maybe someone has had similar problems and solved it.

the VGA doesn't transfer data signals through digital technology, it uses analog, that's why the picture appears correct on the VGA, the HDMi though uses a technology called HDCP handshaking, the PC needs to handshake the display for it to show the images being encrypted from the desktop, if that handshake doesn't take place then the image will appear scrambled.

Hi ive got a Lenove B540 and when I power on only get a black screen with pink lines thrue it. I tried connecting a 2nd screen to the hdmi but nothing. ive used another desktop and connected the ideacentre to it with the hdmi cable to the in... and the screen works fine but without the touch on the screen. I also bought a new cpu and its stil the same Ithought the display is working thru the cpu unit. I think its the display card and picked up from previous posts on this forum that the displaycard is intergrated with the motherboard. Just want to make sure before I buy the Motherbord if its possible that the lcd creen or pc bord could be the problem ? looking forward to hear from anyone

To rule that is a hardware failure, if possible enter bios if once within the same image will appear black screen with the line that you mention it, it is a failure of the graphics chip.

For several years, I have a Vostro 430.It has always been reliable. However, in recent months I have a problem at startup just worse.I specify now I've done every test that came to mind and I found on the forums.So, for some time, I had to unplug all USB on my frontage so that the PC starts. Those behind were still connected. It was never start the first time, but after three or four presses of the button. Failure to find a solution, I accepted the situation. But this time I must remove all usb without exception. Even the mouse receiver, completely prevented from starting. However if there is anything, it starts from the first press of the button. For now, I brought all my connectors on a usb hub that I disconnected before starting.
Some details on the non-starting. Press button gives no sign of life. No noise, nothing on the screen etc. So as if the push boutton was broken ... but this is not the case. But if I plug my usb hub and pushes the button, the LEDs's on the hub illuminate(and stay on). LEDs are off initially if I disconnected and reconnected power

Hello All

I have recently upgraded my computer to an Acer Aspire H30 (i5). My old Brother laser printer (HL 5140) worked fine via W10 and W7 on a previous computer. Now, it only works if I unplug and re-connect the USB connector or the power supply, each time the computer re-starts.

On start up, the printer shows as off-line and if put it online (Devices and printers > right click > see what's printing > uncheck Use Printer offline) I get an error message (Printer is in an error state, or "Printer could print), until I disconnect the USB or the power cord and re-connect it. It will then work fine until I shut down the computer.

I have it connected by USB to a port at the rear of the Acer. In Printer properties it shows as being connected to port USB001 Virtual Printer Port.

I have checked the drivers: there are none available for download from Brother - not required apparently - and the installed driver is showing as "up to date".

I have spent the last week trying various "solutions" found online, but so far nothing works.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

I just did a fresh install of Win 8.1 last week and my TV which is connected via HDMI is not getting detected as a display on my PC. My monitor was detected fine.

When i right click my desktop and go to screen resolution, the TV doesnt show up there even post clicking detect. Same if i go into AMD CCC and click on detect.

However Win 8.1 can detect it. The TV is seen in device manager under digital media device and i can see the TV under Devices and Printers in Control Panel. I've tried troubleshooting it but it says everything is fine.
But I need it to come up as a display so i can use it as a primary display at times or to duplicate display.

I had no such problems with Win 7. It would detect right off the bat.

Things ive tried:-
I've installed the Omega 14.12 drivers and the Beta 15.4 drivers.
I've tried installing them in Win 7 compatibility mode too, but the installer then wouldnt give me the option to install the display driver and the HDMI audio driver.

One thing i notice is that the driver for the TV is provided by Microsoft and the date of the driver is 6/21/2006! So maybe this needs to be updated. I tried to click on update driver but it says my driver is up to date.

I also have all the latest windows updates installed.

so not sure what else to do here.

Please help.

A:Win 8.1 - TV connected via HDMI not detected as a Display

The 2006 device driver is simply the generic one which is normal, same one I get when TV is plugged in.
What HDMI port are you using? One on motherboard or one coming directly from GPU? This almost has to be a graphics driver problem.
Why would you try installing drivers in 7 compatibility mode? We are talking 8.1 here right? Have you tried drivers from manufacturers site?
A laptop or desktop? Motherboard and GPU make/model?
So, so many details you've left out.
Would help to have some system specs.

Nothing is showing up on the TV. I selected the Extended screen option & nothing. I looked in Display Settings & no second screen is being detected. Even though on the TV itself. It reads that a HDMI is connected to the specific HDMI port. Windows 10 says my Drivers are all updated & my Displey Driver is AMD Radeon R7 200 Series

A:HDMI connected to Monitor & the other end connted to TV

If the title of your post is accurate.....then that will never work. You have to connect the TV to the PC with an HDMI cable and then do the same thing for the monitor. You need 2 cables. No other way around it.

Today my notebook Asus M50Vn suddenly started to behave weird. While it's connected to plasma via HDMI, everything starts to stutter a bit, which is very inconvenient in videos. It works like this: 0,5 s of fluid picture, 0,1 s of freeze, 0,5 s of fluid picture, and so on.

Situation is the same on primary (built-in) monitor and secondary (plasma), as well as on youtube, VLC, PotPlayer and MPC HC. DXVA and CUDA won't make any difference, choosing different video renders in player's settings won't do the help as well. I've already tried to install older and newer drivers (graphics is Geforce 9650m GT) but it didn't help.

Computer is 100 % virus free, there is COMODO IS for on-access security and I've also checked it with malwarebytes, hitman pro, emsisoft emergency kit, kaspersky tdss killer and CCE. Almost all processes are disabled.

It's interesting because there's no problems when plasma is connected via VGA.

Unfortunately there's no useful system restore points.

Does anybody have any idea what could be wrong? Thanks in advance.

Decided to run this old laptop to my TV so that I could watch shows from online. When I connected using an HDMI cable the sound cuts in and out very bad. Thought the cable might be bad so I switched it out for a new high dollar cable but still has the same problem. Issue occurs both streaming and when testing using system sounds (such as "test" in the sound setup in device manager). Running Windows 10 (64-bit) and have installed all system updates and have tried updating the audio driver but it is saying I have the most up to date driver. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an Elitebook 8530p that I am trying to connect to my TV so I can view online TV on my TV screen. I can stream the online TV and watch it on the laptop ok, and I can connect the laptop to the TV with HDMI cord and I see the picture on the TV too, but as soon as I push the play button and it starts to stream the Laptop freezes. This happens on both TV's in our house with different HDMI cords which leads me to believe it is an issue with the laptop (not the TV's or cords). I have tried pushing the Fn + F4 buttons to clone it but that makes no difference. I have tried changing the display settings but I don't really know what I am doing! Another post said to choose full HDMI setting but even though the laptop has a HMDI port it didn't appear to have that setting. Is it too old?

A:Laptop freezes when connected to TV through HDMI

The problem is most likely the video card driver, so yes technically your laptop is too old, but luckily you can save that geezer! If updating the drivers doesn't work then you can try changing resolutions.

Solution found here:
a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

b. Click System and Maintenance, click System, and then click Device Manager.
Note If Control Panel is in Classic View, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

c. In Device Manager, expand Display Adapters, right-click the display devices, and then click properties and under the driver tab click on Uninstall.

d. When you are prompted to confirm that you want to remove the device, click OK.

e. Restart the computer.

After the computer restarts, the drivers will be automatically installed. Check after this procedure. Also check if you have any exclamation mark or cross marks alongside the display devices listed in device manager.
You can update the drivers using windows update. Refer to the below mentioned link and use the steps provided accordingly -

You may also check if there are any updates for the drivers at the manufacturer website. You may even install the latest drivers from the manufacturer... Read more

Well normally I'd have said it was just your laptop struggling to upscale the image due to hardware limitations. But a 9650gt should be more than capable.
What happens if you disable the laptop screen and just use the tv as a primary monitor?

Erm.. Try a different HDMI lead and lower the resolution a little. But that's clutching at straws lol

Hi everyone, I just got a new sound bar (Yamaha YAS-105) which only supports Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3, I think) and I want it to smoothly transcode all of my DTS or newer audio to a multi stream AC3 in both MPC player from the latest K-lite mega pack, VLC and Winamp, or rather, if possible, just in general. If I play something thats DD5.1 in K-Lite's MPC it neatly picks up the audio and displays it as DD on my sound bar, same thing goes for DD5.1 in VLC etc. but as soon as I play something in DTS or higher there is no audio. I've been googling and tweaking the settings already and after messing around a bit it does play sound through MPC but none of my Dolby lights light up on my device and it doesn't sound like 5.1 either, the weird thing is that no lights go on, not even the PCM light just the TV light is connected and it gives a sort of stereo with subwoover sound (so 2.1). If anyone can help me out I'd be very grateful, I know it's possible because it works with media boxes as well, I just can't get it to work on windows... Any extra info, I have an Alienware X51 RC1, Soundbar is a Yamaha YAS-105, like I said it's hooked up via HDMI to my TV and my TV through a Digital optical cable to my soundbar.

Realtek shouldn't even be involved with the HDMI sound. I suggest to update your laptop's drivers and use "Intel Display Audio" as your HDMI driver. Set the volume to max then you're good to go.

Hi normally my internet works fine, that is I can connect to pages and they load without trouble in both firefox and internet explorer or anything else that uses the internet.

However, I recently downloaded a new game called IRIS online which uses a hack protection called gameguard which apparently acts like a rootkit.

Now whenever I run the game, it will connect to the game but restricts anything else that uses the internet from working. So when the game is running, I can ping sites and still get a response as the internet is still connected, but pages never load in internet explorer or firefox until I reboot the computer.

A reboot fixes it and there is nothing else that is wrong with my connection (afaik) other than that when gameguard runs, nothing else wants to work.

Apparently other people are fine with gameguard and it doesn't affect them at all so I'm looking for some help as to why it stops my internet from working!

If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it thanks

I have connected my XPS L502X laptop to my Samsung lcd tv using an hdmi cable.

A:How do I clone display on XPS L502X - connected to TV by HDMI

I certainly suggest making sure that you have the most up to date video driver.  The latest Dell drivers may be found from the following link.
You may want to creat an Optimus profile for your applications to ensure that the NVIDIA GPU is being used over the integrated Intel solution.
To create a new profile for an application:

1. Open the NVIDIA Control Panel.
2. Select Manage 3D Settings.
3. Select Program Settings tab
4. Click Add button.
5. Browse to and select the application executable that needs the new profile.
6. Or choose the preferred application from the drop menu.
7. Select the features and settings you wish to change for this application.

Don't forget the basics, try another display if possible and see if the problem continues.  Try another HDMI cable to make sure that the cable is alright. \
Please, let me know what you find out.

I am facing some issues, when connecting my Dell E6440 laptop to my LG 55LB650V flat screen.
I connect the laptop to the TV via HDMI-cable and I have been trying different cables. The computer has both an Intel HD Graphics 4600 and an AMD Radeon HD 8690M graphic card.
When I connect my computer to the TV the screen starts flashing black, every 5 seconds or so. Every time I open a new program the screen flashes and it is also happening sometimes when I do not use the computer.
The computer runs at 1600x900 and the TV is a full HD. I have tried to alter the resolution to both and I also tried to use a custom scaling level of 120 % (as 1920 is 120 % of 1600). I have also changed the refresh rate to 59p HZ and 60p HZ, but that made no difference. I have found out that if using the 60i HZ the screen would not flash (at least it have not yet).
So at the moment I can use the computer on the TV, but of course I would like to know why the screen is flashing when using 59p or 60p HZ and know what I can do, so I could use these refresh rates.
I hope that someone could make me wiser on this problem and maybe give me a solution. If anyone knows, I would also be happy to know what the best custom scaling level to use when using a 1600x900 laptop on a full HD TV is.
I really appreciate any help. Thank you in advance!

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 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.

More Information: I have since exchanged for a different TV (Different Brand) for an unrelated issue and it doesn't work with this one either, same issue.

Right click on the volume control and then Properties,

When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.

You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

I always receive a blue screen and sometime I have the "irql_not_less_or_equal" message. The system works perfectly when I startup using the VGA connector. I have verified that HDMI does work if I startup using the VGA connector and then extend the desktop.

I have downloaded and install the Windows 7 driver from Nvidia. My card is Geforce 6150. The error descriped above happened using my Philips Tv and also my computer LCD screen.

Dear Experts

I am using windows 7 64 bit on my desktop (motherboard ASUS P5E)
ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P5E

And I installed VGA SAPPHIRE HD 3870 (ATI RADEON Technology) 512 MB.
This VGA has a converter plug from DVI to HDMI.

Connected a 3 m HDMI cable from a converter to the Samsung TV.

I can see a picture on the TV but no sound

What I did for troubleshooting

1- download latest driver from AMD website from the link below :
AMD Catalyst
2- Follow the instructions here :
How to Set Up Audio on an ATI Radeon HD |

No audio from HDTV when playing audio / video from a computer system

3- Digital Audio (HDMI) option was grayed out (not clickable) as can be seen in the snapshot below :

A:SAPPHIRE HD 3879 connected to TV via HDMI no sound

What is a Sapphire HD 3879? I can't find that model. I see a Sapphire HD 3870, is that what you mean?

Regardless, you aren't getting audio because DVI doesn't carry audio, so converting from DVI to HDMI won't give you audio.

Been trying to figure out a problem with HDMI audio out and "not plugged in error"

HW is a motherboard with HD3200 and ALC889A HD with latest drivers.

Using a HDMI cable i get HDMI audio out, but if i switch inputs on the receiver then back HDMI audio is "not plugged in".

changing resolution brings it back as default device.

Tested a backed up vista image with ati 9.04 and realtek hdmi 2.23 drivers and it worked fine changing inputs on the receiver.

The same drivers in win7 did not resolve the issue, so im guessing theres something in win 7 that causes this

A:win7 bug with HDMI audio connected to receiver

if you have an HDMI capable receiver I am going to assume you have at least a 5.1 setup correct? And I am also going to assume that "HW is a motherboard with HD3200" means onbaord HD3200?

If yes then I would suggest using either the coaxial output or optical S/PDIF output to the receiver as you are not reciveing 8 channel LPCM through HDMI.

As to your actual problem I am setup same as you, however I am not having that problem... is video still able to pass through to your TV even in the audio not plugged in state?

I fought this problem all day and I think I have it narrowed down. System is Lenovo Yoga 900 i7 with Windows 10 with all latest updates. Application is Citrix Receiver 4.5. When using Quickbooks with the Citrix Receiver, mouse clicks are disabled/not recognized.  All keyboard inputs still work, the mouse arrow tracks correctly, but mouse clicks seem to be ignored.  This behavior occurs when booting to dual monitor setup with HDMI adapter in the USB Type-C port; booting to single monitor (Yoga), then plugging the HDMIR adapter in the USB Type-C port.  The only resolution is to boot to single monitor (Yoga) and work in single monitor mode exclusively.  I am using the USB Type-C to HDMI adaptor purchased from Lenovo.  This occurs with the Yoga trackpad AND occurs with my USB wireless mouse. Also note with native Windows applications, the mouse works fine with both  monitors connected and active. I really bought the HDMI adaptor to use two monitor with the Citrix Receiver.  I have tried to Google this problem, but I'm unable to find a Citrix Receiver support site/forum that would be appropriate for this question. Any advice appreciated.

Hello, I am weighing up my options between purchasing an Ideapad 500s or a Thinkpad L460. I do a bit of video editing, and when I'm doing that kind of work I want to hook the laptop up to a 4k screen, (the extra pixels allow a much more efficient workflow). To connect to a 4k monitor at 60Hz I have read that I need a DisplayPort output (which I note that the 500s does not have), or an HDMI 2.0. I suspect that the Ideapad 500s does not have an HDMI 2.0 output, but I would be happy to be contradicted. Could someone please confirm this one way or ther other? Preferably if you could point me to some official documentation about the product which answers the question that would be great! If it does have an HDMI 2.0, I wonder if anyone has any idea how the nVidia chip would handle the 4k screen. I wouldn't be gaming or even doing and 3d modelling or rendering - just some HD video editing - so I expect it would be fine? Many thanks,Tom

Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.

Recently my hard drive went out and I had it replaced with a solid state drive. The problem I'm having now is when I hook up my Samsung Smart TV through an HDMI cable (also tried a new cable with same results) I get wavy, scrolling lines on my laptop that go away when I disconnect the cable. The lines don't show up on my TV and this didn't happen before having my computer repaired.

The Staples tech wants to charge me again for diagnosing it after paying over $270 for a diagnostics and replacement of the hard drive. He said it's not possible for it to be a problem with the new hard drive so it would be another charge even though it didn't do it before having it repaired and my computer reformatted. I'm concerned I'm going to burn something out if I keep using it this way but I also don't want to pay more if it's something simple. He said it could be the motherboard or graphics card but I'm not sure whether or not to trust him. I'm a senior with little technical knowledge.

I want to use an HDMI cable so I can watch Xfinity programming that's available online only. I can live with it doing this as long as it isn't hurting my computer. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

I've had my laptop for a while, and I've used my TV Screen as a secondary monitor a lot. A while ago my computer updated to windows 8.1 when I fell asleep on it and accidentally hit the update button when it came up (oops), making me have to use windows 8.1 now. Now I haven't had many problems with it, it works fine and dandy, but I do have a major problem when I try to use my second monitor. When I run a game or movie on it, the audio comes out from the laptop speakers, not the TV speakers. Previously, using windows 8, it would let me use both.

I know that if you go into the control panel and the sound systems that it should show two speakers, but for me it isn't. I've tried lots of different things and browsed the web for an answer, but I can't find anything.

Hi there;

I recently got a lenovo z710 ideapad to replace my previous laptop and serve as a substantial increase in gaming potential. I usually game with my computer connected to an lcd tv with an hdmi cord. However, with the new laptop I am having incredibly constant BSOD issues.

The BSOD has specifically occurred in Bioshock: Infinite and Deus Ex: HR (I have not yet tested any other games significantly). I am normally able to play fine for some time, however after gaming for a variable amount of time my computer blue screens after trying to load a new map or level (either by fast travelling, moving from one map to another, or just from loading a savegame).

In the case of Deus Ex, I can quickly and reliably produce the error, if I run the game and load a save, then quit to desktop and repeat, the BSOD will occur within 2-3 cycles. There was no problem when running the game while not connected to my tv, even after 10 or so cycles.

So far, I've tried the following based on what I could find on the net:
-Verified integrity of the affected games
-re-download affected games
-search error codes on Microsoft's website (no luck)
-Used the Windows ErrorChecking tool to check for hard disk errors
-Complete un-installation of NVidia drivers and safe-mode wipe using Display-Driver-Uninstaller tool

Nothing seems to have any affect. I think (hope) it's a software issue, as the computer did originally come with Windows 8, which I removed and replaced with the Windows 7 ... Read more

Hello, I built my new computer about a week ago and was running it off a single 19" Tevion TV while I waited for the HDMI cables to arrive so I could setup my second monitor.

They arrived yesterday and when I plugged in my 32" JVC LT-32DA30J there was overscanning and the bluriness. I fixed the overscanning in the TV's menu and now the size is correct but even at native resolution, the JVC monitor is still quite blurry and is a strain to look at and concentrate on.

Plugging the HDMI cable into my Tevion monitor made that go blurry as well so it could be the HDMI cable or the motherboard ports (when I first got the PC, the VGA port had the same problem but once updated it looked normal)

Does anyone know of a fix to this ? Or can at least suggest what part is going wrong so I can try and fix it ?

What I have tried:
Changing the resolution - all the different resolutions all show the same blurriness
Changing the refresh rate - problem persists through all refresh rates
Changing monitor settings - As above, changing these settings didn't help with anything

Any help is very appreciated , I've been trying to fix this problem for most of yesterday

I messed up display settings for when I attach a TV via HDMI to my laptop. I set the system to display only on the TV (OK, not a totally stupid idea) and then picked a resolution the TV doesn't support (that was TOTALLY stupid!) When I disconnect the TV, laptop display works as normal. As soon as I connect the TV, laptop screen blanks and TV goes to Invalid Format. I have tried to change display settings through the control panel with the TV disconnected, but as soon as I plug in the TV, it goes back to the bad resolution on the TV and no laptop display.

Is this stored in the registry somewhere? I want to reset the flag telling the system to display only on 2nd display.

Please help

A:Invalid Format when laptop connected to HDMI TV

Hi OldWraith, welcome to the Seven Forums.

This should work:Connect the TV, don't mind the Invalid Format warning
Press WIN + P to open Display Switch dialog. You don't see it as it's on the non-working TV display but trust me, it's there:
(Screenshot from our tutorial Display - Change Main Display)
Press Right Arrow > Press Enter to change from Display 2 only to Display 1 only
Now you should have the desktop on laptop's display, you can change your display settings as you wish

System has two HDMI ports and one DVI. The DVI supports a monitor and HDMI is advertised as supporting two monitors. Neither of the HDMI ports are working. Contacted HP support and was told to return for warranty work (1 day old tower). Returned to store for replacement contacted HP support with second tower and was told same, return for warranty work. Contacted online support from another company went through several operations, drivers different connections, both monitor and TV and finally was told tower #2 was also defective.

Hey guys, I'm actually new here, so I am not sure if this is in the right forum page, but I need help. I have had a problem with my HDTV and laptop for a few months and finally decided to start a thread for help. The problem is that the HDTV is blurry and fuzzy when connected to my laptop via HDMI. However, I realize this is an overscanning issue, because in the AMD Catalyst Control Center, whenever I set the scaling for overscanning to 0%, the fuzzy text and screen is fixed, but the edges around the screen like the taskbar are cutoff the edge of the screen. I do not think my TV has an option for "Just Scan", but maybe you guys can find something I can't. Here is the manual:

Also, I am running Windows 8.1 with an AMD Radeon HD 7520G graphics card.

Hi all,

My Toshiba Satellite A30-871 notebook has started discharging the battery whilst the mains power supply is connected (The LED shows that AC is connected but Laptop consumes battery power instead of charging battery and using AC power). When the battery reaches 0% laptop will switch off. Removing the power plug and reconnecting does not solve the problem while the computer is ON, only shutting down computer starts the battery to charge. Which means that I can use laptop as long as battery retains some power. Sometimes when the notebook is off and battery is being charged, battery charging LED starts to blink and I have to remove the power jack and plug it back.

I don''t think its a loose power connector because the light shows the power is connected.

I wonder if anyone got a solution for me.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

I regularly connect it to my TV monitor via HDMI cable and fall asleep watching movies (played on VLC or Windows Media Player).

I set the computer to go to sleep after 1 hour.

Multimedia Settings are set to "Allow computer to sleep" under "When Sharing Media" in the Power Management section.

Screensaver is disabled.

I have overrided my audio driver, since powercfg command suggested it may be a conflict.

If I am playing a movie without the HDMI cable plugged in, the computer goes into sleep mode right on schedule. It is only when I have the HDMI cable plugged into my TV monitor, that it refuses to enter sleep mode.

What could be causing this problem? Makes no sense to me.

Problem started a little over a month ago on my HP laptop running Windows 7 64bit.

When I connect the laptop to my either of my TVs through an hdmi cord everything works fine. Videos run smoothly and the audio is in sync as if there's no problem.

If I try to watch a video on just the laptop though the problems start. If I try to play anything (songs/videos) in Windows Media Player then it says "Windows media player encountered a problem while playing this file".

When I play a video on YouTube the video runs smoothly but there isn't any audio to go with it.

If I go to control panel - sound - speakers and headphone properties and try to play a test sound it says 'failed to play test tone'

Attempted to update the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver but windows said it was up to date. Same thing with the Intel(R) Display Audio driver.

I've recently purchased a Samsung T23A750 monitor and to my disappointment when I try to watch a movie the built in speakers are not functioning. I have a Sony Vaio Z216GX connected via HDMI to the monitor (HDMI-DVI) port. I can definitely see the video, but no audio is playing from the speakers. The built in speakers are not at fault- I did a self-diagnosis of the monitor and the speakers seem to work fine. I also set the monitor as the default for the audio and even when Win 7 says its functioning properly, the speakers still don't work. Conversely, setting the default to my PC speakers work fine. I'm sure its not the HDMI cable- I used the same one to hook my pc to my tv with everything working fine. Any ideas??

I usually connect my laptop to my tv to watch video files in VLC. Recently, I have been noticing when I connect my laptop to my TV and play these video files, the audio skips so much that the video is unwatchable. This happens with every video I try to open (mostly MKV and AVI files). However, when I play these video files without the computer connected to the TV, they work fine. Could the problem be my TV or my HDMI cable?

NVIDIA geforce 8200 does not detect LCD HDTV PC connected to Samsung LE46530F1W by HDMI

The PC is running Win 7 Premium Home 64 bit SP1. It is connected to a 19 inch monitor (Viseo 190W) via a vga cable. The monitor is at 1366x768 at 60HZ.
The nvidia driver version is 275.33.
The tv is a recent Samsung LE46530F1W and is connected by new HDMI cable from PC to TV.
The TV reports that this source is not connected. The current resolution of the TV is 1920x1080 at 50HZ.

If I look in Nvidia control panel, under 'setup multiple displays' - I only see the Vi##SPAM## 190W as a single display. I choose 'My display is not shown', followed by 'Rigorous Display Detection' and 'Yes' to 'Would you like your TV enabled'. This puts a 'tick' in the 'force television detection on startup' checkbox. The 'restart now' button is greyed out - I restart the PC anyway, without effect.

The TV does not recognise it is getting a signal from the PC. The PC does not recognise the TV display as existing.

Any advice would be welcome as to:

I also tried plugging it in the other HDMI slots on the tv and it didn't work in those either. It is doing the same thing to our tv in the living room and it just doesn't make any sense.

I believe this is an issue with the change in resolution that is likely occurring when you connect the HDMI cable. If you can set the HDMI output to the same as the screen, then the icons should stay where you left them.
I had the same issue with icon location changes when another user signed into the PC and then signed in. My icons rearranged. After a lot of trial and error I found that if I set the resolution, scaling, etc. options in both profiles to the default values, the issue vanished. I don't think Windows 10 knows how to deal with resolution changes and desktop icon locations very well, although I vaguely recall experiencing this issue with prior Windows versions. I could not remember how I solved it then, but the resolution/scaling/etc. work around is acceptable.

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 connected to Dell U2713HM monitor over HDMI can't do 2560x1440 resolution in Windows 10

Hi JonoBloo,
The hardware on the system supports the 2560x1440. It should be a software issue. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver from Dell website as these drivers are tested on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the video card.

Press the Windows key and Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Display adapters listed and right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After the uninstall finishes restart the system. Then reinstall the Intel video card driver for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.
Please let me know if this helps.

First off let me be clear on the fact that I don't actually know what I'm talking about, so it'd be kind of you to try and understand what I'm getting at I'm pretty much hardware handicap.

So,I bought a tv, so that I could watch tv, go figure. But also so that I could hook it up to be my second monitor, and to use the extended desktop feature, so that the tv and the monitor divide the view. The thing is, I'm running my PC view on the the TV through the HDMI / DVI socket with a very expensive cord I might add, leaving the the regular monitor hooked up with the "normal" socket. Computer recognizes two monitors hooked up, but only displays one, the TV. When I boot my computer, both screens show the boot up but are cloned. As soon as I hit the login screen, the monitor loses it's signal and goes blank, while the computer still recognizes it's plugged in.

This makes me think it has something to do with my graphics card, which is ATI Radeon 7500 LE, one of those basic default cheap *** cards that are plugged in brand computers.

Basicly, can I do something about it? Do I have to buy a new graphics card just for this? If so could you recommend something that can do what I want, is adequate to run newest games with normal settings and doesn't cost over 150e preferrably?

A:HDMI / DVI and "normally" connected dual monitors?

I don't have an ATi card so I don't know what the specifics are called, but if you right click on your desktop, go to properties, then the display settings tab. In there there is probably an advanced settings button, then that will bring up a window with several tabs. One of those will allow you to choose which display is the Primary monitor, and there should also be something in there like "extend desktop to this monitor". That should allow you to run both at once, and not have them both displaying the same thing.

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?

The bios and overclocking are pretty ***** proof since the motherboard is fairly new. You literally hit one button from normal to overclock. Since then when I boot the computer up the computer comes on for about 3 seconds, the monitor doesn't react at all, then it shuts itself off for another 3 seconds then boots up normally. Any ideas what the problem is or how to fix it? I've seen some similar cases on here but they aren't exactly the same.

A:I overclocked now my computer starts, turns itself off, then starts back up fine

Yes, turn off overclocking!

Hi, I just finished building my first system. Everything works well, temps are low. System:
E6600, ASUS P5W DH Deluxe, 2 GB Kingston Hyperx, Antec Neohe 500w, Antec Solo case 120mm rear exhaust fan, 2 front 92mm fans, Sapphire x1900GT, 2 Seagate sata hard drives, Win XP Home v.2002, Kaspersky security suite. All drivers are up to date. The system can be started by clicking the usb mouse, or by turning the monitor on/off. In BIOS restart PCI, PCIe, etc are all disabled, No restart after power failure, power switch is set to on/off-hold it down for a few seconds. What am I missing? Thanks, in advance.

A:Solved: Weird starts: pc starts from monitor on/off, mouse

Wow That Is One Messed Up Computer Idk It Might Be A Bios Problem Such As It Being Out Of Date Try Flashing The Bios And / Or Try Toggling The Power Options In The Control Panel I Know There Was Something About System Shut Down Modes There Somewhere.
