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 Although, this computer is only a month old, so I wouldn't think anything is out of date.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.

Hello, friends!
I'm tired off looking for answer.
So I came here to look for help, I know you're smarter than me.
I have ASUS Notebook X53U - SX155V
So my problem is AMD HDMI Output - Not Plugged In . And my PC don't have sound at all. Even microphone don't work. I think it's not drivers fault, because I reinstall them for few times. But maybe I can't get the right drivers..
So.. I'm worried about this:
I think you understand, what's the problem.
And this pic (I'm not sure how to tell about it, because of bad english, but I hope you understand)
This error apears when I want to turn on songs on WinAmp

Please help me!

A:AMD HDMI Output - Not Plugged In

Uhmmm if it's hooked up to the TV you need to Disable the on board sound and the AMD card will automatically kick in

You have to disable the onboard to use HDMI sound from the card and when your done unplug and re enable onboard sound

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). Thanks to anyone who can lend a helpful tip in my strange predicament.

Hi all.

I sucessfully got bootcamp to work on my iMac, and the only issue that I have run across is that I do not have any sound whatsoever coming out of my speakers.

The sound icon just remains at the speaker with a red cross, and no matter what I do, I just can't get it to work.
In Device Manager, the sound device that is being used is 'AMD High Definition Audio Device', and I can't seem to find an update for it anywhere. Under the sound area of control panel, if I go to the playback tab it says that the only available playback device is 'AMD HDMI Output', and it says that is "not plugged in".

Would anybody have any advice whatsoever? I honestly don't know what to do at this point, I have tried to search on this topic but it just always seems to lead me to a completely different problem that doesn't help me.

Thank you very much in advance.

A:AMD HDMI output not plugged in,no sound card detected in dxdiag

The AMD HDMI is ONLY for HDMI audio and not for regular PC audio. Unless there is an HDMI cable plugged in, you will get the no cable plugged in notice.

Please post the motherboard manufacturer and model number. Without that I can't say what sound is on the PC's motherboard (for regular PC audio). But, if the PC audio is enabled in the BIOS and is Windows 7 compatible, Windows would install the generic, basic function, HD Audio Driver (Codec) and the PC sound would work. If the sound chip on the motherboard is not Windows 7 compatible (an old Win XP hardware) you will have to install a sound card to have PC audio.

The DX Diag, because the sound is not there, does not help.

Hi, I have an amd raedon HD 5700series graphics card and i have updated all of my drivers to the current drivers but when i turn my tv off (has never done this before until recently) and then turn it back on the audio out puts say they are unplugged. It still detects them but says they are not plugged in. Also when i restart my computer the sound works until i turn my tv off. I think it has something to do with the hdmi because my headphones work regardless. Any help would be much appreciated!

A:HDMI Output "Not Plugged In"

I started having exactly the same problem (audios fine until monitor is turned off/goes off via idle) and it also started happening 3 days ago.

I believe it has to be a driver issue of some sort as CCC updated for me via steam and thats when i started having the issue. I'm using a HDMI to HDMI cable direct from PC to TV, obviously the cable is fine since it works properly up till the TV is turned off.

just as a sidenote i tried uninstalling CCC, about halfway through the process audio was reinabled so pretty sure its to do with that. I can now turn the TV on/off and audio is intact, yay! someone who knows more about this stuff than i do could help identify the exact issue?

GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

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 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.

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!!

Hi, wasn't sure which thread to post this under, but this does say Sound and Audio. Earlier today I restored my computer back to its factory settings, and then proceeded to transfer files I had wanted to keep back onto it. Everything seemed pretty fine but now I am picking up NO audio through my monitor. I'm not too sure when this happened so cannot decipher what exactly may have caused it. I have my visual and audio setup connected to a TV screen via a HDMI cable. How am I supposed to repair or fix whatever has gone wrong? I plugged some headphones into one of the ports and it did pick up those as plugged in.
Any help would be fantastic as I'm quite close on giving up on this machine now.

A:Default audio output is not plugged in

Audio playback device is set by the "playback devices" dialog, which you get to by RMB on the speaker icon in the System Tray. Select "playback devices", and then select your digital HDMI monitor and push the "set default" button at the bottom of the window.

Of course, you also need to have installed the relevant HDMI Audio driver for your video card (or from Realtek?). This is a separate HDMI Audio driver (i.e. separate from the video driver for your card) that would not necessarily come in your factory install, but for sure also needs to be installed to support audio via HDMI cable. Go to the video card web site driver support page (or Realtek?) and locate the HDMI Audio driver for your video card. Once it's installed the HDMI-connected monitor should appear in the list of "playback devices" and will allow you to "set default".

And now you should have audio through the speakers in the monitor, fed from the same HDMI cable that goes from video card to monitor for video.

i thought i should post how i solved the problem of not getting sound via the hdmi cable despite getting a picture after upgrading from vista 32bit to windows 7 32bit.

i have a sony vgn-ar51m with a nvidia 8400m gt graphics card. like a lot of people i had no sound via hdmi to tv and i couldn't set default as it was greyed out.

i trawled around the internet for 2 days reading every thread available on it. i tried most of the solutions that worked for others, installing updated nvidia drivers, the latest sigma tel hd audio codecs, checking the bios, realtek drivers, uninstalling and re-installing everything a hundred times or more. it was doing my head in.

then last night just before i was about to go to bed and give up for good, i found some old sigma tel hd audio codecs made for a dell. i created a system restore point because my laptop is a sony and thought what the hell. but by jove, the older dell codecs worked. everything looks a little different though, i have an extra headphones section and i now need to switch manually between pc speakers and using the headphones/3.5mm jack output, but that's a small price to pay.

these are the ones i installed SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

i hope it works for someone else.

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.

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.*

Hello, I plugged in my hdmi cord into my computer that goes to tv, but all I get is: "no signal". How can I get it to work on windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

A:trouble with hdmi that's plugged in my computer to tv

First make sure your display is outputting to your TV, especially if you have another connection to the card already. Next, make sure you have the TV in the correct mode to receive from your computer, generally called PC mode.

Hello,I've been trying for hours to connect my external monitor via HDMI cable, but neither the laptop nor the Monitor sees eachother.I updated monitor's firmware to the latest and no result. Still, my computer displays that there is nothing plugged in the HDMI port when I insert HDMI cable. The monitor sees that I have plugged in something in the HDMI port, but doesn't receive any signal from my laptop.Would you please advise if there is any solution to this specific situation?Also, be advised that even with the latest video driver downloaded from your website, I am still unable to play on OpenGL video mode. I am looking forward to your reply.  Many thanks in advance,

Ever since the World Cup started I have been watching the matches via comcast stream from my PC (see images for specs)to my 32" Dynex LCD (DX-32L100A13) but getting the HDMI audio was a PITA for sure. I have had luck with work-arounds when the audio decides not to work but this is getting out of hand and annoying to say the least.

Below, in the images you will find my specs (this is the office PC), the usual/normal error and the drivers I have and here's what I have done so far... as far as I can remember of course

I started by installing the HDMI ATI drivers but as I had never really installed any (I thought they came with the normal drivers) but that did not solved or accomplished anything... issue was still visible
It dawned on me to uninstall all the drivers and then install fresh copies of both drivers (regular audio and HDMI)... can't really tell you what the correct way of doing this is because I forgot but, if you install HDMI first and then Regular drivers second and that does not work, uninstall and try the reverse method.
That finally did it and I was able to put the HDMI audio as my default every time I was using my 32" Dynex TV.

Of course that only lasted for a day or two and then, the issue came back... sometimes turning the TV on/off solves it and I am back, some other times, I have to restart the PC and that works, other times, I have to go as far as TV on/OFF and restart at the same time, sometimes twice is the charm and today... no matter wha...

A:HDMI Audio not Plugged In... not all the time

In most cases Windows will automatically change the default playback device from the Speakers (PC Audio) to the HDMI when it detects and HDMI cable is plugged in.

The HD4250 is a relatively old Video card, does this have and HDMI audio chip on the video card or does it require S/PDIF digital audio from the motherboard?

Considering what you have done so far, have you tried a different HDMI cable?

I have been searching all over for the following problem:

I have a normal dekstop-pc setup with a 24" monitor hooked up to the graphics card with a DVI cable.

To be able to watch a movie on a bigger screen, I hooked up a standard 40" TV to the graphics card via the HDMI cable.

I then Duplicate the screen and play the movie on the PC (they are in the same room). When I do other work on the PC, I turn the TV off.

For me this works fine, the problem however is this:
Windows 10 now sees the HDMI-TV as the FIRST monitor, and my desktop as the SECOND.
(I didnt realize this for a long time until I played a game recently and the screen kept flashing and I was having all kinds of problems where the game just wouldnt run right, which was solved when I pulled out the HDMI cable.)

So, how can I tell Windows to set my Desktop monitor as the Primary and the TV as the secondary, and leave it that way without having to switch settings when gaming or watching a movie.

Thanks for your help,

Hi there,

I'm having trouble getting my PC to output to HDMI using 32 Bit Windows 7.

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.

A:Getting HDMI output on Windows 7

I have a similar issue with my Asus board. I ended up having to plug in a VGA cable to the motherboard. Cable doesn't connect to anything else, just the motherboard and the other end sits behind the machine.

If I unplug the VGA cable picture either starts to flicker on and off on the TV or just goes away, plug the VGA cable back in and all works great again.

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.

Sorry if this is a long winded question.

When I use DVI output my monitor allows me to choose from certain presets like "game" or "movie" that effect brightness etc. There is a "Dynamic contrast" preset which gives by far the best colours, however it is no good for even mildly dark scenes. However if I use HDMI output I cannot choose them as the colours seem much better and choosing the preset is not necessary, it looks as good as DVI using "dynamic contrast" and works in dark scenes perfectly.

When using DVI, I am on my PC as it has no HDMI output. When using HDMI output I am using the PS3 which has no DVI output. In both cases I am using the same monitor.

Now to my question, if I buy a DVI to HDMI cable, will the output of my PC be the same as the output of my PS3? ie perfect colours/brightness from using HDMI?


A:A question about DVI and HDMI output

The answer is probably. Your monitor probably isn't smart enough to be able to distinguish between a DVI to HDMI converter cable and a regular HDMI cable. But you simply will not know for sure until you try. For some reason your TV manufacturer decided that you would not be allowed to fine tune the picture while using DVI or maybe the DVI connector simply bypasses the "fine tuning" circuits.

I have a both a DVI and an HDMI output on my video card, but my monitor (32" JVC TV) only has HDMI inputs and I'm currently using a DVI to HDMI cable to run the video to the monitor. The TV allows me to make any adjustments using either a HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI cable, but the video is brighter when using an HDMI cable.

If I must do it split like this I would like to be able to run two separate resolutions.

Output is based on a device being detected as being connected to that port during startup. If a device is not consistently being detected, there are three likely causes: motherboard/HDMI port, cable, TV/monitor.

As for using two devices, simply configure the desktop resolution/settings for each device. Windows should remember the configuration.

So I'm using an M73 Mini Tower with 1 VGA and 1 Display Port output as a PC for a dashboard that's to display stats and different data refreshing in internet browser windows. Our IT department has purchased two VIZIO 50' TVs and we have the PC mounted behind the TVs which are also mounted on the wall. We have one of the TVs connected by using a DisplayPort to HDMI cable and it has an active video signal. Here's the problem. We're trying to get the other TV connected as a second monitor through the TV's HDMI input, but the TV doesn't recognize the PC output. We've tried using a VGA cable with a HD2VGAMICRO converter. We've also tried a VGA to RGB converter cable which also failed miserably. Any suggestions?

A:M73 Tower - Output to 2 HDMI TVs

You've got that Startech adapter backwards.  It is FROM HDMI TO VGA, not the other way around.
You can't feed an HDMI display device from VGA onboard.  Your easiest solution is just to install a discrete graphics card (which I'm guessing you don't have in your M73).  Something low-power like this Sapphire AMD low-profile R7-250 is modestly priced, and comes with both low-profile and full-size brackets.
Since you have a mid-tower case, your options go beyond this suggestion, but you have to stick with a low-power card.  Somewhat more expensive is the Gigabyte GTX 750ti OC card, again with low-profile or full-size bracket.  Better performance specs than the AMD card, but you may not need its performance.
Finally, there is the low-power EVGA GTX 750ti SC card, which is full-size but shorter.  Best performance, but again a bit more money.
I don't know anything about the inside of the M73, but the description talks about "half-length full-size PCIe x16" expansion slot.  I don't know what "half-length" might imply, but the full-size EVGA card is actually the "shortest" of the three so it is actually the most likely to fit in your case.  The first two are low-profile height cards and are thus longer but less high.  All three are under 60W power and should work fine with the PSU of the M73.
All three of these cards have multiple digital connectors (HDMI, DP, and DVI) and no VGA connector.  The AMD ca... Read more

The problem is that every time I want to hear the sound on my TV through the HDMI output, I need go into my sound settings and select my HDMI out as the defult sound output to hear the sound through HDMI on my TV.

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.

Thanks to all

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.

I have a newish notebook with i3 330UM and standard Intel HD graphics/video.. Has both VGA and HDMI ports.
doing testing, the HDMI port gets no ouput when the hot key is invoked.
Drivers are the latest the oem [dell] offers, there are no bangs or other issues I can find with Windows 7 x64.
There are no related warnings or errors in the event log

tried on two monitors proven good with my other notebooks - good HDTV/Monitors with known good HDMI cables set the exact same was as with the other working notebook.
The behaviour is that the system has some detection that the HDMI is there - I get a flash on the screen when plugging in and/or unplugging the cable, but cycling through the four options offered [onboard, shared, extended, projector-only] delivers nothing to the monitor. on one, my ASUS VH226, the screen displays "no signal HDMI".
no other signs/symptoms present.

Can someone explain who's in control of what: I am assuming that for all this to work, the chipset, the video drivers, the BIOS, the windows driver all have to have the device properly supported??? i'm hoping to find some way to isolate the offender.

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 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.

A:Lenovo HDMI output

Push the Function (FN) and the F7 key (there should be two little monitors or computer like icons on the key)

That will cycle the display options.

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.


A:HDMI output to the TV failing.

What's the input set TO on the TV itself?

Just checking.... if it's wrong you will be working on it helplessly forever.

The mobility app and the screen res screen ARE both showing the TV as active?

I would download your laptop manual and check out the FN keys, sounds likely.

Hello Back with Big Problem.

Terrible sound lately and found out this problem. Now I did a lot of finding out and know now I need to change things in my BIOS.

Normally by using the F2 command on starting ( Dell inspiron M501R ). Well, it opens but the arrows don't work.

I am on windows 7 sp 1 64 bit. Is there any other way to get into my BIOS ???

Cannot look or listen to any thing with this horrible noise. It started from one second to the other while looking to QI.

Already, thanks for your help and time,


A:ATI HDMI output is unplugged

Thelma just how old is this machine? - a Google is telling me it is from around 2010 so I am thinking the CMOS battery may be a tad under voltage (it controls the BIOS)

Now a few more specs would be nice too
System Info - See Your System Specs

Unfortunately I don't know of any software that will show up volts within a laptop - apart from taking it apart and physically measuring that battery with a multimeter.

So I wanted to connect my LG tv to my laptop today, and when I plug the HDMI and duplicate the screens, I can only hear the sound thru the TV, the image is blank(screen says No Signal), I've tried restarting computer with the HDMI cable and it shows the Starting Windows loading screen on the TV before you reach the login screen, but when you reach the login, the screen just becomes blank..
I have already connected it to the TV before and it worked fine, there wasn't any hardware changes and the cable is fine because I just tested it with my Blu-Ray Reader.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

A:Problems with HDMI Output

Please fill out your specs. Your manual is your best place to see how the LG is hooked up to a PC, not all of them use the HDMI for this most use a DVI or VGA connection, HDMI is, as you have just confirmed, used for audio if no other source is used. I have had no issues using a DVI-VGA connection to my 37" Vizio.

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?

Hi allI have an HP Pavilion 15-bc000nx with Integrated Intel HD Graphics 530 and a dedicated GTX 960M (4gb). I want to use the HDMI out to use my (1080p) TV as a monitor to watch a movie or play a game while closing the laptop lid. When I do so, the game becomes very laggy and slow (unplayable).When I run Fraps it give me 60 fps !!!!This happens also when I open the lid and choose duplicate displays and adjust the resolution to 1080p, as well as when I close the lid and choose show display 2 only (the TV). In both cases.When I play the game while duplicating displays it runs ultra smooth on the laptop display and at the same time still laggy and jittery on the TV, yet both diplays give 60 fps !!!! I am sure it is not a hardware problem, but how to solve this problem?? Any kind of adjustments or settings I can modify?(N.B. I tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling the new ones for both intel and nvidia from HP website, also I tried another TV) Hope someone would help meThanks

My laptop crashed when removing the HDMI cable... totally dead... had to pull the battery to get it restarted. Now unfortunately the HDMI output is no longer recognizing the TV unless there is a second VGA monitor connected. Does this sound like a hardware issue?

A:HDMI output not working.

Sure sounds like it.

But first, go to Control Panel > Display > Change Display Settings > and click the Detect button with the HDMI connected to the TV.

I have been operating under the assumption that you should never "hot plug" HDMI connections. Turn off the laptop and TV, connect the cable, then turn them on.

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

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.

This doesn't work. Very irritating.
(I don't know if this RealTek sticky at the top of this forum is a solve for this, I'm not hot on registry changes and I'm not sure if this is a fix for this issue.)

Firstly I have to turn off the front-panel detection in order for the front panel to be detected..?

Secondly, I can't get the speakers to mute when the front phones are plugged in. I can do a manual switch from one to the other, but the front panel won't detect when things are plugged in.

Is it fixable?


A:Realtek Mute Rear output when front input is plugged in

Sorry, but no. You will have a Realtek HD codec on board, and, like many others (myself included), are having to use an AC'97 front panel. These will work, but there are limitations like you have mentioned. The only way that you can have the speakers that are connected to the rear panel (the motherboard connectors) mute automatically when plugging headphones into the front panel is to have a HD compliant unit.

See AC'97 and HD audio front panel layouts for an explanation.

I have an XCPS M1730 running Windows 7. Recently the screen would go black intermittently. As I used the computer, the instances would occur more frequently and last longer until it would just stay black and not come back up at all. I can see light if I look closely and cup my hands, but no image.
The perplexing part was that when I plugged a TV in via HDMI, the screen on the computer came up too… and stayed up after a couple of sputters! Dare I hope that this is software related and not too expensive to fix? I’ve been reading a bunch of terrible posts about fried video cards!

I've connected my Dell XPS 13 9350 to my AVR 5.1 surround sound home theater system. Unfortunately the HDMI only outputs 2 channels and is greyed out, not allowing me to select 5.1 or 7.1. How do I update or upgrade my Realtek audio drivers to support more channels?
My issues are similar to this thread for windows vista, but no one seemed to have a fix
Could someone help me get 5.1 output from my HDMI source?

A:HDMI Output only detects 2 channels not 5.1

TJ2010How do I update or upgrade my Realtek audio drivers to support more channels?
Hello. You can't. The Realtek audio chip on the motherboard is hardware that either supports surround, or doesn't. I suspect that your chip is a 2 channel chip, because the laptop only has analog output connections for 2 channels. There wouldn't be any point in having a surround chip. In the past, various Dell laptops have had the audio ports to connect a 5.1 speaker system, but I don't think any of the recent models have more than a 2 channel port.
TJ2010Could someone help me get 5.1 output from my HDMI source?
However, HDMI audio is a digital signal and so does not depend on the DAC (digital to analog) capabilities of the Realtek chip. HDMI audio is controlled by the graphics (video) driver, not the Realtek driver. See the HDMI Audio FAQ for more details about it.

So I'm using an M73 Mini Tower with 1 VGA and 1 Display Port output as a PC for a dashboard that's to display stats and different data refreshing in internet browser windows. Our IT department has purchased two VIZIO 50' TVs and we have the PC mounted behind the TVs which are also mounted on the wall. We have one of the TVs connected by using a DisplayPort to HDMI cable and it has an active video signal. Here's the problem. We're trying to get the other TV connected as a second monitor through the TV's HDMI input, but the TV doesn't recognize the PC output. We've tried using a VGA cable with a HD2VGAMICRO converter. We've also tried a VGA to RGB converter cable which also failed miserably. Any suggestions?

I've been using an HDMI cable to connect my pc (win7 home premium 64bit, nvidia GeForce G210 video card) to my Panasonic HDTV for over 2 years. As of not so long ago (can't remember exactly when, it was around May probably) the PC and TV couldn't connect anymore.
At first i thought it was my HDMI cable that died, but I bought a new one and that didn't work either. I've tried all the HDMI inputs on my TV, downloading the latest drivers for my video card and went through all the menu's on my tv looking for settings that might turn off the HDMI functions, but without any luck.

It's driving me crazy because I haven't changed anything!
