New monitor, HDMI connection between Pc and monitor but no sound

Q: New monitor, HDMI connection between Pc and monitor but no sound

Hi guys,

I decided to purchase a Samsung LED monitor and have connected it up to my pc using a HDMI cable. I recieve the picture on the screen but no audio, been spending the majority of today trying to solve the issue but have landed short.

My set up is a AMD A10-5800K APU, 8 GB ram and using windows 7 64 bit. The monitor I purchased is a Samsung LED monitor T32E310EX.

Currently the speaker symbol has an x next to it, when I click it it tries to fix the problem. When I right click it and go to playback device it shows Digital Audio HDMI (High Definition Audio Device) as my default device but no sound bars next to it. If anyone could help me out that would be great thanks

Have you configured your speaker setup to use Monitor Speakers rather than external speakers?

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

Hi, welcome to TSG

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

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

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

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

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

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

Alright - here's the story.

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

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

Why, oh why?

As soon as I got home, I plugged in the cable to the back of the monitor (the DVI end) and into my Wii U (the HDMI end). I powered on the monitor, and WALLA ----- oh wait. "No Signa... Read more

Just got a new monitor today, Samsung S24D300HL which I have plugged into my Nvidia Geforce GTX 745 video card via HDMI.

Picture is great no problems there. However I have no sound at all. I've updated my graphics driver via Nvidia Experience program version 361.43 I've right clicked and went to Nvidia control panel audio tab and my monitor was listed there as audio under HDMI still no sound. I've restarted the computer a couple times. Checked Windows update. Switch to a different HDMI cord and still no sound. I've right clicked the speaker in the taskbar and went to playback and what I have is. Nvidia HDMI Output (Port 0) and Nvidia HDMI Output (Port 1) both say not plugged in. I'm confused about the Port 0 and Port 1 because there is only one HDMI spot on the back of the card.

Any help appreciated.
Thank you

A:Loss of monitor sound via HDMI

You should have HDMI listed as a Sound Playback device. Whatever happend apparently removed or disabled that.

To start, go the the Souind Playback panel and RIGHT click in an empty spot in the panel and then LEFT click to show disabled and disconnected devices. If it now shows up you can set it as default and you should get sound back.

However, if its missing, reinstall your video display drivers and that should get it back.

Very helpful forum so thanks in advance for addressing this -

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

A:Playing Sound via HDMI When Monitor Is Off

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

tnguyen9175 welcome to the Seven Forums.

Is this the monitor?

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

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

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

I've enjoyed a lot of the useful information from you all on this forum. My problem is that when I connect my Acer Aspire 5810T Laptop to my Asus Monitor MT276 via HDMI, I get video on my Asus but no sound through its speakers. I'm getting sound through my laptop though.

I'm unable to see the HDMI sound icon when I use "Manage Audio Devices" even though I checked to show disabled and disconnected devices. I think it may be because of my graphics or sound card (which I've tried updating via device manager but still no luck).

My system specs are to the right and if you require any other information let me know. Any suggestions on how I can get sound through the monitor's speakers?

[SOLVED]

I now get sound and video via HDMI through my Asus monitor. The way I got it to work was by updated my chipset driver to an older version.

Steps I took:
1) Go to Device Manager
2) Open Display Adapters and right click and select Update Driver Software
3) Select Browse my computer for driver software
4) Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
5) I then was given a list of drivers and selected the oldest version (2/26/09)

I restarted my computer and plugged in the HDMI and the HDMI icon magically showed up when I went into Playback Devices.

I have updated the OP to show my solution. Thank you all for your help. You guys have a very good community here.

A:No sound via HDMI to ASUS Monitor

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel. If you have HDMI Audio, there will be an icon for this. Set this as the default playback device and that should get you HDMI Audio.

My very limited understanding of HDMI is that it's typically a single-cable audio/video connection to high-definition TVs. Is it worthwhile for standard PC-to-LCD connections?
 

A:Advantage of HDMI for standard PC to LCD monitor connection?

Only if your TV doesn't have a DVI in. DVI will give you just as good quality.

Another thing to note is in a traditional home setup HDMI carries audio and video. So unless you have one of those video cards that will also output the audio with its built in HDMI connection you will not get audio to your TV through HDMI.

tldr: My desktop icons get rearranged upon change in HDMI connection, but go back to normal when changing back.

I have a laptop running Windows 7 x64 connected to a monitor of a higher resolution than my laptop screen's. I have it set to extend the display. The icons are arranged on my main laptop display correctly with the HDMI connection active. When I unplug the HDMI cable, the laptop display goes black for a long time (over a minute) with some weird stuff flashing on the screen (incorrect resolutions, parts of the screen displaying in the wrong area, etc) and when it figures it out and returns to the correct resolution, the icons are all messed up. Usually I use the Windows Key + P shortcut to try to make it work faster (though I can't see the on-screen switcher thing). Additionally, if I use that shortcut with the HDMI connection active, something similar will happen (though it won't go black for a long time; it just makes the top of the image go to the bottom of the laptop's display). In either case, reconnecting/going back to "extend" works well and puts the icons back where they should be. It might be that the icons are correct with the two monitor setup just because I set them up correctly one time with this setup, so if I unplugged it and set them up correctly, they would screw up with it plugged in. This would mean that the change in monitor setup causes the icon change. Note that I use DisplayFusion for wallpaper management, but I be... Read more

Hey guys, it was a long time since I needed assistance with any technical stuff but today is the day again.

So it is like this,
I am using an Asus N61JQ laptop and I always used the VGA cable to connect any monitor or projector. Today I wanted to connect my laptop to my Dell U2412M monitor with a digital cable instead of VGA and that is when got in to problems.

Dell U2412M connections: DVI, Display Port, VGA.
Asus N61JQ connections: HDMI, VGA.

To connect the laptop to the monitor I have used an nVidia adapter that came along with one of the GPU's + an 1.8m HDMI cable.
This is the link to the adapter: http://www.ascendtech.us/mmASC/Images/P331X.jpg
So I connected the adapter to the monitor and then the HDMI cable from the laptop. In the end I did not get any image.
Just to be safe I have also installed the original drivers for the GPU and audio chip from Asus support.
The cable is not faulty nor is the adapter, tested it on an old laptop that had DVI on the side of it.

Question:
WHY? Something to do with the signal conversion and it suppose to work just from the back of a GPU?
What kind of an adapter or cable do I need then?

PS,
I do not really want a big adapter sticking out of my laptops HDMI port, it is way too easy to break. But please include both the adapter and the cable that I need in the explanation just so I know this for the future.
Thank you for your time.

Alex
 

A:HDMI laptop / DVI monitor cable connection

Faulty/incorrect adapter. Try a different adapter or use a DVI to HDMI cable. It's also possible that it won't work at all. The adapters are generally meant to connect to the PC side (ie: DVI output). This is because most HDMI ports also expect/utilize HDCP.

Hi,

New to this forum. Hope you can help.

I have been using an external monitor (Samsung PX2370) with my Toshiba laptop (about 2 years old), connected via an HDMI cable. Up until today it has been working fine. This morning the audio stopped working. Now the laptop does not find the external monitor at all when connected via HDMI. I can connect fine with the VGA cable. I have tried a new HDMI cable but it doesn't help.

Any ideas would be most welcome

Is there anything blocking the HDMI ports on the computer and the monitor? you may want to clean them with compressed air.

If that doesn't help try connecting the laptop to another monitor or TV via HDMI so you can determine if it is the HDMI on the computer or the monitor.

Duel boot XP-Pro/Windows7-Pro system with Gforce 8200 graphics, one HDMI port and one VGA port. Monitor on HDMI connection works as always in XP which is that the out of range message goes away at the login screen.

Not the case with Windows 7 though. There is a brief moment when the out of range message goes out and the screen is just backlit but somewhere just before and very near the time of the little login sounder it goes out of range again.

I can successfully log in blind but...nothing, Windows 7 loads fully but the monitor stays out of range. I've tried the graphics drivers that 7 installed itself and the latest from NVidia and I've tried setting the resolution to 1920x1080 while connected by VGA and booting back to HDMI. No joy. Everything works fine if I switch over to the VGA connection but that is already occupied by another computer without an HDMI port so...

Does anyone have any experience or suggestions about what might be keeping the monitor out of range when booting to 7 on an HDMI connection?
 

A:Solved: Monitor out of range on HDMI connection

Progress update:

Well, while I took part in the great organic regenerative unconciousness, the monitor came on at some point. I left both VGA and HDMI ports connected and Windows 7 thought it had two monitors connected. I found I could switch back and forth at will and set the correct resolution for both and even managed to pull the VGA connection and maintain screen visuals via HDMI.

However, 7 disallowed aero and has given me some odd refresh rates (29 interlaced, 59 and 62). Adapter properties lists GeForce 9200 now instead of 8200. Crossed my fingers and rebooted...out of range message now goes away at login and aero came back, so far.

I'm going to mark this solved but feel free to comment if a similar transgression has occured and the up front solution is known.

Until and unless that happens, well, I guess my advice is to sleep on it!

Hey all,

So I recently just picked up a new 27" Samsung Monitor, here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-S24D5...=UTF8&qid=1427052003&sr=1-4&keywords=s27e390h

For some reason I can't get the sound to work. It's hooked up via an HDMI cable to my Nvidia Geforce 750 TI GPU. This is the same HDMI cable that was used with my old monitor and there was no issues at all.

Though for some reason it's just not working for this monitor? I've made sure all drivers were installed, the monitor was set as default in sound control panels, tried all of the available options there in terms of default (HD audio device, digital audio, my monitor, etc) but I can't seem to get it to work..

Any ideas??

The green sound level bars are going up and down but nothing is just coming out of the speakers, so I'm not sure

Thanks guys. Very stressful.

Hello again - it's been a long time. I'm working on my Laptop now...

System:

HP dv9330ca laptop running Vista 64-bit. NVidea GE Force 7600 video and Conexant audio. 2GB RAM.

I hooked-up the HDMI cable from the lappy to the TV (Toshiba 32DT2U or 32C110U, not sure) and had no sound through the TV, so I...
Set the sound on the lappy to digital ouput (SPDIF) in Control Panel - still no sound.
Updated video drivers (after google and HP website suggestion)- we have sound (isn't this odd??).
Updated audio drivers - sound is gone (what the...??).
Rollback audio driver - still no sound -.-
Re-install video drivers - we have sound.
Reboot - we still have sound!!
Power down Toshiba display and power back on (left the lappy on and streaming audio and video) - no more sound
Re-install video drivers - still no sound

I have rebooted after all the mentioned steps above. I am making sure that the sound is set to digital in Control Panel but it isn't helping anymore, nor is the re-install of the video drivers. I am thinking that the rollback of the audio driver suggests that I should not try re-installing the newer one, as it seemed previously to cause a conflict.

As always, your suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I've tried to change the HDMI to a other port on the tv but doesn't work... I've checked that i haven't muted the TV.
Still nothing, i guess this has to have something to do with the update i made yesterday?
Though i'm pretty sure the sound worked after the update as i've watched tv with sound on it after the update... however now it's just gone. Could it be because it went to sleep then i went back to the pc and (it was in hibernation mode) then toggled back but no sound on the tv...

How do I disable my LG Monitor from automatically shutting off and starting the sound channel
when the sound channel is silent or muted.

I have an HDMI LG monitor with an AMD Video card.
I run my sound output from the AMD video card HDMI cable into the LG Hdmi monitor.

The audio works perfectly in all situations, except for the fact that, when there is no sound signal present
(" Muted or silent " ) the device temporarily disables until the next time sound plays, then it re-enables correctly.

the problem is it takes about .5 to 1. seconds to re-enable. which is annoying as FFFF sometimes. when Im playing 1 second long sound clips. the clip is over before the signal re enables. then turns off again as soon as the sound is over.

-------

It could be an AMD issue (considering that the sound runs via the hdmi cable out of the AMD card.)
or it could be an LG issue. Both decent companies. I bet its an LG Flaw (that will not exist on newer models.

A:Hdmi Monitor sound / auto shut off - on (ANNOYING)

This sounds like an issue with the AMD video card's sound or even deeper a PC issue. What are the 1 second sound clips? Does this happen with ALL sound or only certain sounds or from certain media players or games?

What do you have listed in the Device Manager for the Sound? Do you show the AMD HDMI and whatever PC sound card you have? and nothing else or do you also show other items.

I purchased the 5510 with the high DPI touchscreen, running W10 and after some fiddling with it, including going to Windows 8.1 scaling and forcing the non high DPI aware applications to utilize that scaling too, I am really happy with the laptop itself.  
The problem is connecting it to anything else.  I heard that not all HDMI cables would support 4K monitors, so I went to the local electronics retailer and tested it. HDMI worked fine with a 4K screen.  I thought surely it would be able to drive also a standard run of the mill 24in 1920x1200 screen as an external monitor, with different scaling factor.
Nothing at all.  Tried also using HDMI to a HDMI-DVID adapter and utilizing that port, same problem.
The monitor simply gets no signal.  The computer never recognizes the fact that it is connected.  It seems like a case of zero compatibility.  I tried going to other monitor appropriate resolutions, etc. it does not work at all.  
While this is annoying by not being able to use an external monitor when I go home in the evening, or it means I need to buy a new high DPI monitor, what about connecting to a projector.  HDMI is the standard, and no projector runs 4K.  Why have a laptop that you cannot use for presentations?
I am not keen to go experimenting trying to purchase more dongles/adapters/ports for USB C without some idea why the built in HDMI has zero use as a connection to a projector or monitor.

I have the 2nd setup through a vga to hdmi cable but it just sits there black with "check signal cable."

2nd monitor is an lg2241

Tried:

- multiple re-boots
- downloaded a driver from LG but don't see that it did any kind of install. Double clicking it's zip file opened it and clicking on the three files did nothing but open gibberish code.
- at screen resolution I see multiple displays and I have it set on extended.
- Clicked detect and identify
- #2 says display device on vga
- tried unplugging and reconnecting the cable (hdmi to vga)

I'm lost. SOS!

lol!

Thx,

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

Dave welcome to the Seven Forums.

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

Assuming this is your monitor,

LG E2241V-BN: 22" Full HD LED LCD Monitor | LG USA

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

I really don't expect a solution to come out of this; but I would appreciate it if you looked into it. The problem was accidentally caused by me. I have a ati radeon 6850 graphic card hooked up to a Samsung syncmaster t260hd moniter. One day I tried to go to the graphic utility ccc to change the resolution and hertz. Because old movies looked jittery at 60 hertz. I must have used a hdtv custom resolution and now my monitor wont work anymore. It displays mode not supported the moment I turn on my computer. I used both hdmi ports on the monitor to no avail. But, now here the tricky part, I uninstalled the amd driver software, but I also installed driver software via steam video driver update feature way back in the past. As of now, I am using a dvi to hdmi connection with no noticeable difference in picture or video.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

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

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

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

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

Hi,

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

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

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

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

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

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

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

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

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

HDMI does not appear in the BIOS of the desktop PC. Simply not there so of course no options to enable or

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

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

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

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

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

A:vga/hdmi/usb monitor extending!

Hi sam_skinner1, and welcome to TSG.

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

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

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

Hi Everyone! Been a while since I posted. I recently purchased a new TV. I put my old TV (2 years old, Dynex 42" LCD) in my bedroom. I bought a new HDMI cable and plugged into the TV at HDMI 1 and into the back of the computer. There is only one HDMI port on the back of the PC, which is a Dell studio XPS that I bought a year ago. It is win 7 with Nvidia GE Force GTS 240. After I plugged everything in, I turned on my PC and the TV. The TV has the blue "no input" screen, and the PC didn't detect it. I went into the display settings by going Control Panel- Appearance and Personalization- Display- Screen Resolution. I clicked on detect, and it didn't detect it. I clicked on the picture to add a monitor and selected "Multiple Monitors". Resolution is 1024x768 and the displays are set as duplicate. I went into the control panel for NVIDIA and clicked a link for "Display not shown".

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

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

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

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

A:Second monitor HDMI no signal

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

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

So now to the question; If I use a DVI-HDMI cable from my computer, will the tv support a picture in its native resolution, 1920*1080? The manual directly says: "do not connect a PC to the TV's HDMI input. Use the VGA input instead when connecting a pc." Seems fishy to me.... Hopefully someone knows something and can help me??

Hello,

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

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

Help plz.

Thanks

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

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

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

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

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

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

Any help is appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Using HDMI With Monitor

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

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

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

A:Playstation 3 to monitor via HDMI

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A:HDMI not recognised by monitor.

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

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

Hi,

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

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

Thanks

Ryan
 

A:VGA monitor, but HDMI port

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

Hi people, thanks for reading,

I have just been using a vacuum on the fan of the computer and unplugged everything. I've now gone to use it again and the AOC monitor is saying 'no signal' I've connected the HDMI cable up just how it was before so I'm completely stumped as to why it's not working now.

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

Many thanks again,

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

Test with a different monitor to verify the computer or monitor is faulty. Or test that monitor on a different computer.

"Please check if Dell 3007WFP is Plug-In!"

Well, it IS plugged in and powered on. I see my desktop there (I have it set to duplicate view between my laptop and this monitor).

Hello all,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Help! Thanks XD.

P.S: ATM, besides the 360, I do not own a device which is HDMI capable.

I am using a 22" screen for my primary screen and the laptop lid open for a secondary screen. The main screens resolution is 1680x1050, I can set it to anything I want and it's always using the full screen. The laptop screen on the other hand will only use the full screen if it's at 1400x1050 resolution (max for that screen, IBM Thinkpad T43). With the large 22" screen I have no trouble reading the screen at high resolutions, the screen is huge, with the little 14" screen though I have to strain to read the screen at 1400x1050.

The problem is when I set the laptop screen to anything lower than 1400x1050, it uses less of the screen. Preferrably I want it at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (I dont know which I want yet as I can't see the freaking screen at that resolution). At 1280x1024 for instance the useable screen is just a box in the middle, so the "1280x1024" is still barely readable for me cause it's shrunk from full screen, plus it's just annoying only using a portion of the screen.

I have played with the ATI Control Center, the Thinkpad display settings and windows display settings and just cannot get this thing to go full screen at lower resolutions when docked and using the external monitor.

Anyway to resolve this?

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

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

What I've tried:

- Rebooting my computer, nothing. (I rebooted after all of the following attempts as well)
- Going to Screen Resolution and manually detecting another monitor. Nothing was detected.
- Going to Device Manager and scanning for hardware changes. Only the VGA monitor is listed as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", nothing about the HDMI monitor.
- Updating graphics drivers. I used the built in Windows driver updater, nothing. I used NVIDIA's site and downloaded the recommended driver, nothing.
- Switched the cables between the two monitors, the VGA monitor works while the HDMI monitor does not.
- Tested the HDMI cable with an Xbox, works fine (cable is working).
- System Restore to several days ago when both monitors worked, nothing.
- Booting in safe mode, nothing. (don't think this would work anyway... I tried...)
- Removing and cleaning graphics card, nothing.
- Attempting to detect the monitor via NVIDIA Control Panel, nothing.

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.
