Q: Trying to connect Laptop via HDMI to HDMI

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to connect my Toshiba laptop with an HDMI Output to my Phillips 42PFL9532/98 using ATi Catalyst Control Center and I am trying to clone the laptop monitor to be the same on the TV but it comes up on the TV Unsupported Video Format and when I make it a 2nd monitor it works fine.

It would be great if someone could help me out to get it working.

Thanks Sam

What it the resolution on your main screen that you want to clone, and what resolution is the TV when you set it up as the second monitor?

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.

So, as the title says I'm having trouble with the connection from my laptop to my tv through hdmi, and I've tried quite a few things to solve the problem, but I'm not the most gifted person with computers or technology as a whole, I've simply run out of ideas.

Before I moved out from my parents' house in november, I'd lent a tv of theirs (a non-smart lg tv) that worked perfectly with my current laptop and hdmi, so I had to get a new tv+hdmi. So I went out and bought a new tv (LG 42LF580V). After a week it stopped being able to connect with my new 5 metre hdmi cable, so I went out and got another hdmi cable (also 5 metres). That worked for about 2 days and then that also stopped working, so I figured it was the tv. I sent it back and ordered a new tv (Samsung UE40J5515). I never got that to work with my hdmi cables and laptop, so I sent that back too. Some time in the middle of all that I've had my laptop connected to various things at school through hdmi, and I've also had it connected to both my neighbour's and my friend's tv so see if something was wrong with my laptop, but I had no problem with that.

Xmas was approaching and as I went back to my parents' house on holiday, I of course brought my laptop and one of the first things I did was connect it to the non-smart lg tv that I used to use. It connected instantly and worked without any problem at all for the next two weeks until I had to go home.

A:I can't connect my laptop to my tv via hdmi?

A solution I've not yet tried is to get a vga to hdmi cable instead of hdmi to hdmi. I honestly don't know the difference or if that could work, but if anyone knows, I'd love to hear it.

Hi,

Sounds complicated (To me anyway)

I'm running Windows 7 64bit with 2 video cards (NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and NVIDIA GeForce GT 240) as I use 3 monitors.

My TV is located where it is not possible to run a cable to it from the PC, It is however beside a CAT5 box that is connected to a CAT5 box beside my PC.

I use a TP-LINK TL-MR3420 router for my PC and wireless access upstairs.
It is connected to a Belkin Share wireless router set up purely as an access point downstairs via the 2 cat boxes mentioned earlier for wireless access and a wired connection to my xBox.

I want to use one of the spare video card ports to connect to my HDTV
I have a HDMI output on the NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and a DVI output on the NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 that are not in use.

I think HDMI is the way to go as I believe I can use a S/PDIF cable to connect my motherboard to my NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and so I will have audio as well as visual.

My question is:
Can I use a HDMI to CAT5 converter, connect a HDMI cable to the video card output, connect one end of a CAT5 cable to that, the other end to my TP-LINK TL-MR3420 router (Which is connected to my Belkin Share wireless router)
Take a CAT5 to HDMI converter and run a HDMI cable from my Belkin Share wireless router to my HDTV?
Is it possible to do this via a router at all?

Any help is much appreciated ..
 

A:Connect PC to HDTV via HDMI -> CAT5 -> Router -> Access Point -> CAT5 -> HDMI -> TV

Hi and welcome to TSG.

The HDMI to CAT5 converter most likely sends raw high speed serial video through all four twisted pairs of wires in the CAT5 cable rather than converting the video data to Ethernet compatible data packets. Any Ethernet router or switch would not know what hit it.

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

Hello. I use Windows Vista on a nearly 6 year old Acer Aspire 5930.

My old monitor stopped working, so I borrowed one from a friend. That will connect through VGA(my old cable), but for some reason everything got a greenish look, impossible to use for anything besides reading.

So I also borrowed his HDMI-cable. I connect them both, it makes the sound indicating it's connected, but nothing happens. If I have both VGA/HDMI at the same time the VGA works. If I remove VGA it won't work. I've tried numerous different combinations of this.

I've tried the Fn+F5 thing. Only works with the VGA.

Tried rebooting it, both with VGA and HDMI connected. Same result.

I'm fairly certain I've connected this pc to a tv 2 years ago, but then the sound didn't work, but the visual was working fine.

I've cracked the screen on the laptop. Everything I've been trying I've done with VGA connected.

The video driver is up to date.

The monitor is definitely working on a different pc. The VGA is probably working. My old monitor died due to power failure(It just turned off and won't come back on) so there's no reason to believe the VGA-cable isn't broken either.

A:Won't connect laptop to monitor with HDMI

This is one old box and I'd suggest that the integrated video chip is nearly dead or at least the HDMI aspect of it is.

Hey, months and months ago someone stood on my laptop screen and left it broken with the black and multicoloured patches all over it.
I was able to still use the laptop by connecting a hdmi usb lead from the laptop to the back of my tv. It worked fine for a few weeks before it started to cut out randomly.
Then it would only work by tilting or lifting the lead up a certain way. And now it doesnt work at all.
My tv says 'check signal cable' when things are on the right channel but arent connected, yet when i plug the lead in it says 'no signal'.
Im saving up for a new screen but until then i need to get my college work from my laptop.
Any ideas on why it's not working?

So I connected my Dell laptop to my LG LCD TV for the first time via an HDMI to HDMI cable, and it worked great. The next time I attempted to do this, my TV displayed "no signal" on every hdmi input. I've tried updating drivers and using the tool that is partnered with my graphics card to appoint the TV as the primary monitor, but I've gotten nothing.

Both the laptop and TV recognize that the HDMI cable has been inserted, but it won't show me a picture or give off any sound. Help!

My laptop only has VGA output (no HDMI or DVI) so I purchased a powered VGA to HDMI converter. I am getting sound but no video. I am receiving an error message on my HDTV screen that reads "Incompatible video signal received. Check your output source" I am running Windows 7 and accessed my NVIDIA control panel settings but can't seem to get it to work. Do I need to adjust the video output settings?

Hi there

Now that's a different issue completely --some of these VGA==>HDMI video converters aren't much use I'm afraid. - I had one ages ago but could never get it to work -- what you could try though is see if your computer can set to DUAL monitors first and then try and use one as the primary. I think (if I remember W7) that Windows + P key scrolls through the external monitor settings.

With VGA output from one of those converters you won't get 1080p - you might have to set your TV to a much lower resolution than 1920 X 1080.

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?

Hi there. I have a problem that just presented itself in the last 24 hours. I have previously connected my laptop computer to my HDTV via the HDMI port on a regular basis but randomly as of last night my laptop will no longer acknowledge that the HDMI is connected to the HDTV. I have tested 2 different HDMI cables to be sure they are working properly as well as all 3 ports on my HDTV and made sure the TV was on the correct input. I have not done any updates/installations/uninstalls/deletions/resolutions changes or anything else that could have prompted this issue. I double checked my graphics card drivers, which were out of date but I was able to update them. I have cleaned my registry, did a system restore, checked for viruses/malware/spyware, power drained, and rebooted multiple times.

On, what I would call, a related note... The online game that I play has also started having problems when I run it. This started the exact same time that my laptop's HDMI would no longer connect to my HDTV, hense the belief of relation. The game has become extremely laggy dropping me down to 2-3 fps. I can drop my video settings down to minimum and be lag free, however, I have been playing the game on this same laptop for 8 months on the highest ultra settings with absolutely no problems until whatever occurred last night.

These 2 things lead me to believe it is a graphics card problem. I am currently running NVIDIA GeForce 9400M G. As I said before, I have updated to the most recent ... Read more

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.

Hi there

I actually LIKE the SKY Q package -- also now 4K UHD available - and it's cheaper than the SKY HD + if you are selective in what you choose (apart from the up front cost).

BUT

1) only 1 HDMI output at back of box so get HDMI splitter -- works fine and bypasses any HDMI restriction on copying etc.

2) if you want to RECORD to DVD recorder -- then there's no SCART or A/V outputs - so just get HDMI-->SCART converter --works fine. !!!

Note most DVD recorders still record at 576p - no probs really for older stuff and you can connect the output from the HDMI splitter into the converter for your DVD recorder.

I still use DVD recording sometimes to make physical DVD recordings of stuff I can't get elsewhere -- and then on the computer use MAKEMKV to convert the DVD recording to an MKV file for playing via streaming services such as PLEX.

SKY says this can't be done - but the Chinese 2 way HDMI splitter (use cheap powered version --the expensive ones retain HDMI protection !!!) works fine -- Max output though is 1080p.

Or if your motherboard has 2 PCIe X16 slots get a 2nd matching card.

This is more of a HDMI handshaking issue than a Windows or driver issue, and a very common occurrence. Sadly if you do a Google search using "hdmi handshake no audio" for the search terms, you'll get lots of results but very little in the way of how to solve. About the best solution I came across is this one,

A lot of that thread deals with the Asus Xonar sound cards, but there is also quite a bit about the no audio in general.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

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

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

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

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

Hello quick question so i'm clear and to see what you would suggest.

I have a new upgrade LG 55 inch 4k TV connected to my PC via HDMI to GTX970 I've read this TV supports audio also via the same HDMI cable plugged in to my video card. I'm a huge gamer.

Right now I have a X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card connected to a 4.1 Logitech setup w/sub. I've been using this for years and it works great for surround sound when available and EAX is always a plus SO whats my benefit to 86 the 4.1 and just go HDMI?

In that case I lose the 4 speaker setup correct and just use audio from the TV?? I can't see the advantage for this unless i'm missing something big. I don't use SPDIF output or the Dolby digital or DTS encoder from the card I assume all that you need a receiver.

Can I use HDMI output for audio and STILL use my 4.1 speakers? I don't want to invest in a receiver or anything like that at this point. What would you do if you were me? i'm at work now but I read if I go into the sound properties/playback devices I can choose HDMI output? I'm curious to see how that works.

thx!

A:HDMI cable for audio or keep my 4.1 w/soundcard? need help w/HDMI

Windows only allows one default audio playback device. e.g. HDMI or Speakers (your sound card). HDMI audio is generated on a sound chip in the Video card. You don't have all the options you do with a Sound card.

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

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

A:dell xps 13 9450 (2015 new version) does not output HDMI to tv or monitor via special dell DA200 Hdmi adaptor

Oops I see my first post got sent, even if the website failed...
Anyay.. I talked to Dell Support and they told me to update the firmware for:
Intel (R) Thunderbolt 3 Firmware Update
(version 02.05.04,A00)
downloaded forn Dell.com/support
Enter your service tag and you will find it under Chipset on the driver download page.
That fixed it for me!
It was a known issue for the guy i talked to.

A:Building a PC to connect to HD TV via HDMI

Hi,

Personally I would go for a Gigabyte board if you can find one that suits your needs. I have generally found them to be better quality than Asus, you may well get similar answers from others on here, especially if you have that sort of money to spend on it.

maybe something like: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/195332 which is a bit cheaper but probably better (in my opinion).

I also, personally, think ATI have the edge with graphics at the moment. I have always been a bit of an NVidia fan but the general concensus seems to go toward ATI currently.

What other specs are you looking at, I am assuming your are looking at around £1500-£2000 easy, for the full rig if you are spending that much on the graphics card and motherboard alone, wish I had that sort of money to spend on a PC haha.

I've connected my HDMI-cable to my PC (graphic card EAH5770) and to my TV (Sony Bravia 26'', about three years old) but I can't choose the TV as my other display from Catalyst Control Center or from Windows' display preferences when they are connected. What should I do to get it to work?

EDIT: In other words my computer doesn't recognize the TV and I don't know why. And here's some specs if they help in any way.

BIOS: BIOS Date: 09/14/09 11:49:05 Ver: 08.00.14

Monitor: SyncMaster T220/T220G,SyncMaster Magic T220/T220G(Digital)
 

A:Can't connect my PC (with EAH5770) to TV via HDMI

Confused. Do you have a display running already, and this is a second monitor? Or is this the only one?
I assume it is a second monitor, as you say you cannot see it, which implies you have a screen to see it on. try using ONLY the HDMI connection, see what happens then, ensuring that the TV is set to the correct input. I have a triple monitor set, and th eHDMI has had no detection problem so far. The only thin gI can think of is to change the first monitor to the second DVI slot. the 5770 should have 2 dvi and 1 hdmi i believe, one of the dvi is actually an alternative input for the HDMI.

Putting it simply ( I confused myself, there!) try just the HDMI. That should work fine, then plug in the second monitor.
If that does not work, or you get nothing for the HDMI, try the DVI in the second slot. Either way, should cure it.

HiI bought this laptop last week and have attempted to connect it to my TV to use as an external display as I used to do with my old Dell laptop but have been unable to do it. I know 'how' to do it but when I connect the HDMI, it just doesn't detect the signal so I am unable to select any of the options (Extend/ Duplicate etc). I have tried looking at the Graphics Properties to no avail. I just can't find the option to change anything that will actually make it worse. The HDMI cable definitely works (I have tried it with another device and it worked fine). Can I have some advice please? I'll also stress again that this is a brand new laptop suggesting that all drivers etc are up to date. ThanksAlex

Hello

I am trying to connect my Laptop Dell XPS M1730 windows 7 (2x 8800M GTX cards) - to my HD ready TV from LG.

If I use a HDMI calbe directly from my desktop pc, it works perfectly (I don't even need to turn down my resolution)

But my laptop does not have an HDMI port. So I bought a DVI-D(single) to HDMI cable. And connected them up.
- The TV detected something. And then said "no signal" on the screen.
- My laptop screen went black when I connected.

Do anyone know how to fix this? Am I using the wrong cable?
DVI-Digital Single link to HDMI is the cable I am using.
The laptop has DVI Female connector.

The exact cable I am using below in the picture:

A:Can't connect DVI-D(single) to HDMI on TV

When you try this, what resolution and refresh rate is your monitor on your laptop running?

What is the native resolution of your TV?

I've seen some strange things when connecting up to a TV from a laptop where either the TV can't handle the resolution/refresh rate that the laptop is pushing out or the laptop can't push the right resolution/refresh rate.

It's an unlikely solution, given that you have good video cards in the laptop - but try this - set the resolution as low as you can set it - 1024x768 for example, and the refresh rate as high as you can - 75hz, for example. Then plug in the TV. If that works you may need to play around with the resolutions to see what happens.

Also, when you connect the laptop - and if the screen goes black on it - hit windows key + P, then hit the "right arrow" key on your keyboard once, and then hit enter. That might switch the display back to the computer - if it works you can then troubleshoot further.

When I connect my notebook to the TV using HDMI the sound does not come from the TV it comes from the notebook. Also, when I go on to manage audio devices in my Control panel the TV does not show up even in the disable and hidden list. I am not sure if this relates to the issue but I have a code 10 on my HD audio driver if that does anything to affect the sound.Please help 

A:No Sound from TV when i connect with HDMI

Hi: Yes, that is the problem (code 10). Since the graphics drivers are fine, let's not mess with those by running the graphics driver file. Let's just play with the HDMI audio driver file inside the Intel graphics driver. First, download and install this free file utility.  The 2nd line is for 64 bit. http://www.7-zip.org/ After you install 7-Zip, download and save, but do not run this graphics driver. This package provides the driver that enables the Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver. File name: sp72370.exe After you download and save the above graphics driver file, right click on it, and select 7-Zip from the list of items. Have 7-Zip extract to:  and let it extract the file into its folder name (sp72370). Once that is done, go to the device manager and click on the problem HD audio device. Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update Driver. Select the Browse my computer for driver software option and browse to the driver folder 7-Zip created. Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked and the driver should install. Then restart the PC, and you should be good to go.

I understand that you are having an issue with getting a display connected with HDMI to come up. I am happy to help with this. First, check out this: HP Desktop PCs - Connecting Monitors and TVs to Your PC (Windows 10, 8). Then be sure you have the drivers for the display installed. If there are not drivers specific to Windows 10, then try installing the older drivers using compatibility mode in Windows 10/ Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi all,

I'm a bit desperate so I came here hoping to find some answers.

So I wanted to connect a second monitor (which is a TV screen) to my PC to watch movies, but suddenly my PC wont send any signal to my TV, so I tried connecting all kinds of HDMI cables to all kind of TVs/monitors laying around in the house, and my conclusion is that whenever I tried to connect a second monitor with HDMI directly to my PC it wont show anything and it also doesn't show up in my Display settings on my PC. So from what I can tell the problem lays with the PC itself (within windows probably).

I have up to date display drivers so that is not the problem.

Also something worth mentioning is that my main PC monitor is connected with DVI, and the DVI connector works just fine on every device.

Hope someone can help me find an answer soon!

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.

Did you test the setup using a specific combination ofResolution, Frame rate and interlaced/non-interlaced settings that you know is supported by the TV? The TV's specifications should list it's native video format support as well as any alternate video formats.

When I connect the PC with the HDMI cable (video card port//gtx760) to the TV, it doesn't detected it and brings me this message: "This source is not connected. Check the connection status."
Instead if I connect the HDMI cable to the PC (through motherboard port) the TV detects the presence of the cable, but without working (and if it did, however, the resolution would be bad).
So my question is: why the TV does not detect the PC while is connected through the HDMI cable? And what can I do to fix it?

If I use either F4/the windows key + P and select duplicate or PC screen only (or any other option) and then plug it into the TV, both the laptop screen and the TV screen are blank. Pressing any key does not bring up anything on my laptop screen, then when I unplug the HDMI cable it comes up with the second screen only option highlighted. My laptop strangely ignores what I click and constantly reverts back to this option and alas, I cannot project the screen onto any monitor (I have tried 4 separate monitors).

My laptop previously was able to be plugged into a TV and I have done this numerous times but as far as I'm aware this stopped when I had a windows 8.1 update (my assumption, I'm not sure). I have searched the web for solutions and none have worked. I have tried the method of detecting the monitor via the screen resolution option on the desktop, but again this can't be done because I can't see anything on either screen when my laptop is plugged into any TV, and I have tried countless times.

Any help is appreciated

Hi

I have an i5-based DG67BL intel motherboard computer that has a DVI and HDMI ports with one DVI monitor connected to the DVI port.

I added an GeFORCE 210 graphics card to it that has a VGA and a DVI ports and connected additional two monitors to it.

So far computer is working fine with three monitors configured in windows as extended desktop.

This motherboard has just one PCIeX16 slot. It has 2 PCIeX1 and a PCI slot that are vacant.

I need to connect yet another DVI monitor. I took a HDMI<->DVI cable, connected it to the onboard HDMI port. the monitor was not detected.

I tried various combinations of monitors and bios settings in vain. Under no circumstances the HDMI port drove the DVI monitor.

The cable is working fine elsewhere.

What did I do wrong ? Is there something I need to buy/replace for this to work ?

Thanks !

A:How to connect additional DVI monitor to HDMI port

you 'need' to connect a 4th monitor? I recommend getting graphics card(s) to support your endeaver, but up to you.

Why don't you get a dvi to vga or maybe its a vga to dvi cord and connect the dvi monitor to the graphics card vga port?

Does it have to go into the HDMI port? HDMI carries sound as well as the video signal, dvi only carries video, and vga carries a lesser quality video

It was my understanding that the HDMI connecting cable carried both video and audio. I have purchased a Dell XPS Laptop that has the HEMI connector.

Connected it to my Sony Bravia 42" TV and the Windows Desktop was truly amazing to see. My problem is that the only audio I am getting is from the speaker in the Dell Laptop.

I was surprised that there was no sound (along with the video)!!!

Does it make sense to buy a mini plug for stereo to come out of the Dell Laptop and that split to a right and left channel to run through my sound sytem.

I think this might work but why am I not getting sound through the HEMI connection?

If anyone has dealt with this, I would sure appreciate any ideas.

Thanks,

Steve Bell

A:HDMI Connect to a Sony Bravia 42" using Dell XPS

You?re going to want to get into your audio settings and make sure your HDMI is set to send sound to your device.

If you are running Vista, right-click your speaker icon in the taskbar and select ?Playback devices? from the menu. From there, a window will open and should list your audio devices. Highlight ?Digital Output Device (HDMI)? in the list and hit the ?set as default? button. Also, right-click and make sure the device is enabled.

Cheers,

I purchased a new monitor and desktop and I'm confused as to why I can't get the monitor to connect with a HMDI cord. I know the monitor works fine. I even got it to work with my old computer with a HDMI cord. But when I plug it into this new desktop, the monitor is black with a message that says 'Check Video Cable!'  I'm a little worried that there's something wrong with the desktop itself and it's not booting up properly (which is why nothing is appearing on the monitor) The power button is lit up(plus the bottom of mouse is lit red and the dvd tray opens) but it seems pretty quiet. (I am used to having loud, crappy computers though)  Idk if this helps, but my monitor is a HP Pavilion 23xw 23-inch IPS LED Backlit Monitor and it has 1 VGA and 2 HDMI (with HDCP support) My desktop is a HP ENVY 750 Desktop PC These are the specs-No Secondary HDD2GB AMD Radeon R9 370 [2xDVI, HDMI, DP, DVI to VGA adapter]16GB DDR4-2133 DIMM (2x8GB) RAMWindows 7 Professional 647-in-1 Media Card Reader, 4 USB Ports (Top), Audio [Top 2USB2.0, 2USB3.0]500W Power supply6th Generation Intel® Core? i7-6700 quad-core processor [3.4GHz, 8MB Shared Cache]2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6G Hard DriveHere's a pic of it  Should I  buy a DVI to VGA adapter and try to connect it that way?

This concerns an HP late-model notebook, Win7 Home Prem x64, used as a desktop with HDMI-connected 1080p 21", plus usb mouse/kbd. The goal is to make this as simple as possible: desktop-like. Just turn it on and work.
It seems that either/both coming out of sleep state or simple shutdown and startup the Monitor stays offline because, I suppose, its getting no signal from the notebook. I tried to duplicate this on a dell notebook in my 'lab' but I only have a vga connect to work with - it just works. in fact I have trouble with the usb port but not with the monitor persisting.

is there a chance there is some interplay between vendor/maker-specific implentations, plus perhaps the embedded Intel HD video controller?

A:How to make HDMI-connect Ext Monitor persist?

this could be an external device problem, somehow messing up allocation of resources @ boot. my brother has a new i7 super machine, hooked up with a monitor(dvi) and an hdmi bigsceen hooked up as well.
no problems. then he hooked up a firewire card-hooked up to an external mixer, something like that. he had identical/very similar issues. when we troubleshot, i first said eliminate any possibilities no matter how remote.

long story short.

when the external device is powered up his main monitor did not work when coming out of hibernate mode. with it off(not the card just the devise) all is well.

from what i could assertain, didn't sound like your problem. i know this sort of deal does not usually occur with printers and scanners. but it is somewhere to start(or end if nothing else is hooked up in such a fasion).

good luck dude

Hi, I recently figured out that I can plug my Xbox 360 Video and Audio Cables into my computer. What me and my father tried, was that we tried opening windows media center (Since we have windows vista). We have been trying for 4 hours now, using a bunch of different methods. I'm not that very techie (Which is why I'm asking you guys) so I'll use the best terms I can. My main question is, how do I make my Xbox 360 screen appear on my monitor so I can play it.
Sidenote:If this actually works is there a way I can record what I'm playing?

Thank you all in advance.
 

A:Can't connect Xbox 360 to HDMI Computer Monitor.

Bit confused here. Why are you plugging it into the computer? Can you not just plug it into the monitor? Most have several ports, think one of them should work for you- lots have a HDMI input, that may be your solution.

Within the last week I have started having this problem with my laptop where I plug it in to my tv with the HDMI cable, I get the video but the sound plays through my laptop. In the sound settings the hdmi says that its not plugged in.
 
I have tried everything including rebooting the laptop with the hdmi plugged in and with it out. I have also tried rolling back and restoring my laptop and i have not installed any new software.
 
The only thing that works is uninstalling realtek audio driver and rebooting my laptop each time play something through my tv. I have tried this on my parents tv and it still happens so its got to be the laptop. The laptop is a custom laptop.
 
Please Help!
 

A:Having to reinstall audio driver every time I connect HDMI

Why not just disable the sound/Realtek function if you aren't going to use it?
 
You can disable it/renable it any time...in Device Manager.
 
No need to uninstall drivers, if disabled.

Hi all,

Hoping some one can help me with this. I own the ACER AS3810T laptop and it has one HDMI output. When I connect to my LG 42" LCD TV using HDMI, the screen goes blank and TV says no signal and i have to force shut down in order for the laptop to work again. When I connect to the TV and start the tablet, I can see starting Windows on both screens. Seems once Windows is loaded, I get no signal on the TV from the tablet.

It was working perfectly before i switced from Vista to 7.

The graphics card is an Intel GMA 4500MHD.

In there anything i can do to fix this.

Thank you all for any kind of help.

Does it actually say "no signal" on the tv once the splash screen loads?

Also, you need to setup the tv in the Intel HD Graphics console. Click on Intel HD Graphics>Graphics Prperties>Display>Multiple Displays>Operating Mode>Clone Displays.

I use 2 monitors (see below). Both worked fine for over a year then the digital monitor suddenly went blank and the computer now has problems booting and displaying. Everything works fine when nothing is connected by HDMI. Both monitors work when connected as analogs (one at a time because I only have one pin connection).

I have confirmed:
There is no malware/virus on my computer.
HDMI cable is fine (I have 2 new cables, and switching cables doesn't change anything).
I think all drivers are up to date

Hi SI K,
If you haven't already done so can you update the Intel 4600 and AMD8690M first.
If the issue is still there then:
1. Restart the system and tap F2 to enter to the Bios
2. Navigate to 'Virtualization' and choose Disable (uncheck the box)  
3. Also disable VT for Direct Io and Trusted Execution 
4. Return to the main menu in the Bios and select Power Management Option and disable Advanced Battery charge configuration
Once you have done that check to see if the issue is resolved.
If it isn't then open the Intel Graphics Control Panel, go into Advanced Resolution and change the frequency for the LCD from 40Hz to 60Hz

I am using a Laptop with a dead screen by running an external monitor from vga port. I am trying to duplicate this monitor on Sony HD tv using an USB adapter to HDMI. On the first go around I got my desktop ...minus any task bars or icons. on the Sony plus sound but could not get the complete desktop to display. (I am thinking now this might have been resolution trouble and my icons were just out sight) Videos play fine on vga monitor but see just windows logo on Sony.

When I go to display settings I see "1/2 multimonitors" and it shows the Sony as 3.
That is when I get lost. If I click on identify it shows a giant " 1" and "2" on my vga monitor. at the same time.
Then my choices are duplicate, extend, and show desktop. Which should I use.???
I am not sure if my vga monitor is 1 or 2.

There is also a "connect to projector". I messed around there and killed the vga monitor (my only one) Had to restore in safe mode to get back to normal vga output.

Note the computer is one floor above the Sony. so dragging things across not possible. Sorry explan is so long
thanks

The HDMI needs to be set for default audio playback in order to have HDMI audio.

Reboot the PC and see if that fixes it.

If not, most HDMI audio is generated internally in the video card so reinstall the video drivers and see if that does the trick.

I am having some serious problems and have spent over 15 hours trying to find a solution. I have a HP Pavillion dv7 and am running Windows 8 Release Preview. I am trying to broadcast the display from the laptop screen, to my flatscreen via HDMI cable. Before I installed W8RP, I was running Win 7 and all I had to do was plug the HDMI cable in, and the picture would show up on the tv. Now when I do it, nothing shows up at all.

I have downloaded and installed this driver (AMD Catalyst) but during the installation, the screen turns black but the computer continues to run. I can unplug the HMDI cable while the screen is black, and hear the windows sound that I would normally hear, as if it were working, but the screen never goes back to normal. So I have to force restart and then the screen turns black again right after the Windows welcome/loading screen. Then I have to do a system restore to get the laptop to work again.

I've also installed the Intel HD graphics for Win 8 too, without any luck. If anyone has any helpful information, I sure would appreciate it. I've spent countless hours trying to figure out a solution to this problem, but nothing seems to be working. I've exhausted all google searches. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

hi, my TV is mounted to the wall, and the HDMI port is now flush against the wall. I have an LG RHT387H which is an LG Hard Disc Drive with a HDMI port - I've run my cable from this port to my laptop (Dell Inspiron n5110) ... any clue what to do now to view what's on my laptop on the TV? I can access the HDD menu on the tv, however I can't figure it out. Thank you!
 

A:HDMI from laptop to HDD

You should double check the RHT387H's user manual, but I believe the unit only has an HDMI port on the back and it is used as an output only.

How are you connecting the RHT387H to the TV?

When you say "I can access the HDD menu on the tv" are you talking about a menu being displayed from the RHT387H or that the TV has some kind of HDD option in its own menus?

Hi there

you might need to set the display resolutions options for the 2nd monitor (use Windows +P key) separately. Also some TV's have on their own settings a video option (usually done with the TV's own remote) an "Auto fit" or "auto resize" or similar setting.

A:Laptop to LCD TV via VGA/HDMI

HI Skizzy, welcome to the forums.

I suspect that your problems stem from the fact that VGA and HDMI use two completely different signal types. In fact I wasn't even aware it was possible, I was having this conversation with a friend the other day, and the conclusion we came to was that it probably wouldn't work, because VGA is analogue, and HDMI is digital.

If you have a HDMI slot on the laptop, then try a HDMI cable, failing that, a VGA>Scart Cable should work fine, as both are analogue,

Hope it helps.
