HDMI output suddenly not recognised/detected

Question: HDMI output suddenly not recognised/detected

Hi.

I've been using my laptop, outputting to my TV via HDMI for Months with no difficulty. Usually, the displays are duplicated as I have resolution issues if I output to just the TV ('show only on 2').

Yesterday, I changed the output to 'show only on 2'. Sure enough, it worked fine, my laptop display turned off, but the resolution was way too high, so I reverted back to 'Duplicate my displays'. The image on the TV stopped and it dropped to a 'no signal' screen, my built-in display was (and remains) fine. It now refuses to detect the HDMI output. The TV does recognise there is a device plugged into the HDMI port, but says 'no signal'. I've tried two HDMI leads, both same result (and both work fine on two other devices into the same TV using various inputs). My laptop just point blank refuses to see the TV. I've tried the Win+P thing, I've rolled back drivers, reinstalled drivers. I can't understand why this has happened and how to fix it, and it's important I am able to use my television as a display.

I really hope someone can help. Googling has brought up kind of similar issues, but not exactly this issue.

Thank you.

Hi,

I am having a problem with hdmi output to my HDMI capable TV.
Nvidia sees tv but windows sees "another display not detected".
I've tried reinstalling, updating drivers, followed recommended solutions here but nothing seems to solve the problem.

I have a qosmio x500 128 with reformatted/reinstalled windows 7 x64, with all old and and or new Toshiba drivers that I can think of. I've tried everything but nothing works. BIOS is the latest v2.80.

I've never had any problems with Toshiba laptops but this one takes the biscuit.
Too many problems for the price.
Things should have been easier especially for someone who knows about computers never mind a novice.

But I haven't got a clue!

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Answer:Qosmio X500 HDMI output issue - another display not detected

> Nvidia sees tv but windows sees "another display not detected".
I?m little bit confused? how do you mean that?

Usually there are no many configuration options?.
Connect both devices (notebook + TV) using HDMI cable and then use FN + F5 in order to switch to the TV.
That?s it?

Please also check BIOS settings? in my case the BIOS contain some options related to external monitor.

Answer: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.

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!

Answer: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.

Streamed movies from the Microsoft Video App on the Surface 2 to a 1080P TV screen is very poor quality. The video shown on the TV is not nearly as sharp as the video on the computer's screen. It is much darker and with a splotchy appearance. Tried other TVs with the same result.

Hi

I followed the instructions in the manual regarding directing sound to the HDMI output.
However when I go to the Sound control panel there is no Digital Output Device (HDMI) listed only the Conexant Speaker and SPDIF outputs.
I tried the SPDIF output as the default, that didn't work.
The HDMI is working just fine for the picture but the lack of sound through it is driving me nuts.

I'm running VISTA (fully updated) on a U400-145

Anyone any ideas how I can get the HDMI output to show up as an option?

Answer:Re: Satellite U400-145: HDMI Output no option to select HDMI as default

Hi

Go to Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback tab
There you have to click right.
Then mark the options; ?Show all disabled devices?
Then you should see the HDMI.
Now you could enable it and chose as default.

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.

Hi, I just got an Ideapad Y560 with Windows 7 64 bit and out of the box the sound doesn't work when I connect the laptop to my TV using an HDMI cable.  I went to Control Panel - Sound, and immediately I got the popup message:Windows has detected that audio enhancements for the following device are causing problems:Realtek HDMI Output (ATI HDMI Audio)Would you like to disable Driver Enhancements for this device? So, I'm guessing that the driver enhancements are the problem, but what should I do next, diable the driver enhancements, install an updated driver, or something else? I don't know what a driver enhancement is. My goal is to get sound through the TV when I plug in the HDMI cable and then have the PC switch back to internal speakers when I detatch the HDMI cable, which is what it should be doing in the first place. Thanks for your help 

Answer:No sound over HDMI cable - might be Realtek HDMI Output issue

I tried disabling the driver enhancements.  That didn't seem to do anything.  The Realtek HDMI option is present in Sounds in the Control Panel, but the sound level meter doesn't show any activity, even when the HDMI cable is plugged in.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

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.

Answer: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.

Good afternoon I have a problem with the VGA output of my laptop Toshiba Satellite L500

Using the HDMI output I have no problem to connect to any TV.
The fact is that when I use the VGA output having the laptop on the side, on TV I get colored vertical stripes similar to a letter setting ....

Here I leave a picture of what appears to me to connect the VGA output of my laptop to a TV:

http://s2.subirimagenes.com/otros/previo/thump_8005040zqicw.jpg

tried another laptop to my TV and looks great, ..
then ...
Am I missing some driver ... do not you think?
Why is my HDMI works perfectly but my VGA displays vertical colored lines? ..
Not to do ...
This is hopeless ... I need the VGA output of my laptop toshiba l500 to work.

Greetings from Spain.

Answer:Satellite L500 -HDMI video output works fine but VGA video output don't

Maybe stupid question at the beginning but why do you need VGA connection if HDMI works perfectly? I mean using HDMI you will have better pic quality and also sound will be transferred to the TV.
Using VGA only video signal will be send to the TV.

Anyway, I don?t know which driver do you use. Is your notebook preinstalled with original OS that you got with your notebook?
Do you use ?TV only option? when this happen?

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!!

Hello, I own a T420s 4173-RB5 (Intel integrated graphics only) and a Mini Dock Plus Series 3 (45N6693).  Until yesterday, I had connected one 19" display to the docking station's VGA port and another one to the first DVI port.  That works fine except for the worse image quality on the VGA-connected display. That's why I got another DVI cable and wanted to connect both displays via DVI. The problem: Windows 7 does not recognise the display connected to the second DVI port (the one connected to the first port works fine).  The display does not show up in that dialog box where you can change resolutions.  It only offers to try to send data to unrecognised VGA or FBAS connected devices but that does not help (as there is nothing connected to those ports).  However, under Linux everything works as expected, even with both displays connected to the DVI ports.  Thus, I conclude there are no hardware problems. I have already updated the Intel graphics drivers several times.  I am now at version 8.15.10.2622 which is the one to be found on the Lenovo support website.  The interesting thing is that immediately after the driver's setup completes the second display works!  I have just reinstalled the driver again ("updating" from 2622 to 2622) and am working with both displays connected to DVI at this moment.  But after every reboot, the second display is lost again and I would have to reinstall that driver again, so t...

My brand new Omen 870-163ng has 2 HDMI ports, but no DVI or else. When I connect my iiyama ProLite E2472HD monitor the message on the screen says 'no signal detected'. Since the PC has only HDMI ports it is pretty difficult to trouble shoot. The PC was already replaced, but the 2nd one has the same problem. The monitor works well on HDMI on other devices. I can return the PC again to the vendor, and he is happy to replace it, however, after two tries it is hard to believe that the next one will do better. Could you help me please?

Answer:HDMI port not recognised

I'm not an expert but what I would tell you to do is to check if the HDMI cable is damaged and if it's still not working check if the HDMI port is damaged. (Sorry if this wasn't useful. ).

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

Answer: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 all,
I have a Lacie 250GB firewire external HD (couple of years old) which I use as a backup device. It's only used (switched on) about once a month.
Everything has been fine until yesterday. When I switch it on, the light comes on and it whirrs into action as usual, but, rather unusually, Windows 7 (32bit) starts looking for a driver and then says, "Device driver software was not successfully installed". The HD, unsurprisingly, doesn't show in "My Computer" but does show in "Device Manager".
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the HD, but still no joy.
I have a separate 64bit partition (used exclusively for music) on the PC which does recognise the HD, so all is not lost, and leads me to think that the HD or cable is not the problem.
Any help much appreciated.

Hello everybody,

I have a Windows 7 enterprise 64 bit pc and an Onkyo receiver. I used to have them linked with an aux cable for music. But since I had enough of the bad sound quality I bought an optical cable and connected it. Now I have the problem that my subwoofer gives a lot of less sound then with the aux cable with the exact same settings and music. Also my pc recognises the optical cable as an HDMI cable and I don't think this is right. I can't change any settings either in the sound.

I am running Windows Vista, and don't know if this is a hardware problem, a software problem, or a malware problem. Hopefully someone can tell me.

I was typing in an instant message in the 3D grid "Second Life," when my keyboard suddenly just stopped working. My computer started making the default "you just unplugged something" noise, followed by the "you just plugged something in" noise. It did this several times in a row, giving me a little pop-up that Windows did not recognize the USB device.

I unplugged the keyboard and it all stopped. After a moment, the keyboard worked fine again, for a few minutes, then repeated the problem. However, unplugging and re-plugging the keyboard back into the computer, both in the same and in different USB ports, have all yielded the same results - it works fine for a little while, then randomly stops being able to recognize the keyboard.

I tried updating the driver for the keyboard, but it did not come with a install CD, and when I tell it to automatically search online, it simply sits there for an hour with no results. In the course of posting this problem to this forum, the problem has occurred twice.

I hope someone can enlighten me as to why this is happening, and how to fix it. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and I look forward to any feedback anyone can give.

Hello all,
I purchased an HP Pavilion 7966 1.7GHz P4 in 2001 from Best Buy. It has an 80GB Seagate ST380020A drive in it that over time got very noisy (making whiny, screeching noises) and so I purchased Gibson Spinrite and ran it on the drive. Spinrite found tonnes of bad sectors, and each time I ran it (I ran it 2 or 3 times) it found even more. The drive continued to get even noisier and Spinrite said it was dangerously overheated. I don't have any extra hardware in the machine, so the airflow should be as good as it was when purchased. Well, I went into Best Buy and asked if my drive could be replaced under Seagate's three-year warranty. BB said that because I didn't purchase the drive OEM directly from Seagate, it was only covered by BB's $300 three-year warranty (which I didn't purchase). So I swallowed the loss and purchased a Western Digital Caviar 120GB drive from ZipZoomFly.
I have Norton Ghost and Ghostcast Server at work, so I took my machine to work with the purpose of imaging the 80GB and then putting the 120GB in and dumping the image back down. Well, suddenly the Pavilion no longer recognises the Seagate: it says 'hard drive not found' when I boot it up. Is that drive totally toast?
(And yes, I make regular backups every few months but still want to get what's on the drive.)
 

Answer:Seagate ST380020A suddenly not recognised

Well sorry to say but it's not looking good for you with that drive. I bought a Seagate 200gb drive today ($75 after rebate + 5 year warranty = good deal) and hope mine will turn out better than your experience. Unplug the IDE cable from the Seagate drive and then plug it right back in. Turn on the computer and see if that helps. Sometimes little things like that can do it. Also, I have a friend that one time had a dying hard drive and he stuck the drive in his refrigerator for about half an hour and let it get really cool...he was able to get his data off of it after that. I know it sounds crazy, but when you have nothing to lose, you may as well try it out.

Hi everyone

The issue i have is that when i connect my laptop to my tv via HDMI i cannot get any audio, the video works like it should. It constantly says "not plugged in" and is greyed out in playback devices. The issue is only when running windows 10, when i boot into Ubuntu on the same machine the HDMI connection works perfectly so i figured it cant be a hardware problem....

I have tried installing AMD legacy drivers, updating my graphic and audio drivers through windows updating and searching the web for older drivers as it has worked in the past. I have also performed a reset in win 10 because had been playing around with scheduled tasks to try and improve boot time on my ageing machine.

Also tried starting the computer with the HDMI cord already plugged in and the TV on just in case it was some sort of issue recognizing it getting plugged in. Have also tried deleting drivers and restarting with the cord still attached.

The issue is only when running windows 10, when i boot into Ubuntu on the same machine the HDMI connection works perfectly so i figured it cant be a hardware problem....

I have tried installing AMD legacy drivers, updating my graphic and audio drivers through windows updating and searching the web for older drivers as it has worked in the past. I have also performed a reset in win 10 because had been playing around with scheduled tasks to try and improve boot time on my ageing machine.

Also tried starting the computer with the HDMI cord already plugged in and the TV on just in case it was some sort of issue recognizing it getting plugged in. Have also tried deleting drivers and restarting with the cord still attached.

My Laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ62 402AU
CPU - AMD Athlon II P360
Graphics card - Radeon HD 4200 series

I apologize in advance if i have posted in the wrong section, i have been searching for a solution for a week now and cant seem to find anything that fixes my problem

Thanks in advance for any help

Question: HDMI output

How do I hook up my SL510 to output to HDMI tv.  I have connected HDMI port on laptop and on TV and set the TV's input. The computer has something called "Intel TV Wizard".It tells me I have no connection to TV.   It lists a  bunch of video connection types, none of which is HDMI.  I'm thinking maybe this bit has to be updated, but I have no idea how to do that.  Any ideas? Thanks  

Answer:HDMI output

Try the thinkvantage presentation director. If theres no scheme that supports HDMI you can make one. Dont use any resolutions that your tv doesnt support becuase then it wont work. Good luck.

Answer:HDMI output T-500

The porti is a DisplayPort., not the same as an HDMI port.  There is no HDMI port on the T500.  You need a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.  Look on EBAY for one or I think you may bea ble to get one from Lenovo.  The port will give you video but no audio.

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

Question: No HDMI output

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

Nothing has helped.

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

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Question: HDMI Output?

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

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

Answer: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.

Is there any way I can add an HDMI output connector to my T61? At the front of the left side of my T61, there is a spring loaded door that appears it is meant to accept some type of card. Is there perhaps a video card with an hdmi output that might fit there or else some other way I can get HDMI output for my graphics?

Answer:Any Way I Can Add HDMI Output to my T61?

There are two docking stations you can use with your T61, the advanced mini dock, and advanced dock. Both allow for digital video, and the latter supports installation of a PCIe (lp) video card, so you can install the card of your choice, as long as it fits in the case and doesn't exceed the docks maximum power recommendations. Either of these docking stations can be purchased very cheaply from resellers.

Question: No HDMI output

Hi,

Since a lot of my pc problems I solve by searching this forum as well, I turn to you guys with my latest problem for which I can not find an answer.

There is no output on my HDMI port and I wonder if there is a way to check if it is a hardware problem?

I have new pc (win7, ASUS gtx660) and was trying to get HDMI out to TV. I couldn't get pc to list the TV as display option (within Win7 and NVIDIA app). I tested with two HDMI cables and in addition with two TVs. But later I discovered that I don't get picture to my monitor via HDMI either (DVI and DP work perfectly). Since I see people are having a lot of problems with HDMI to TV connection with Win7, there might still be a driver issue (even though I updated everything, including graphic card BIOS).

I've had a hardware failure recently - USB 2.0 ports on motherboard failed (I had to replace it) and laser jet printer failed at the same time (was connected to USB 2.0 ports; printer board was replaced). Still don't know what was the initiating event.

Thank you so much for your help!
 

Answer:No HDMI output

HI

Is your Windows 7 OS fully up to date and at SP1?
Is Windows 7 32bit or 64bit?

I would first off check that on the TV you have chosen the right HDMI port connection via the remote control options, sounds a simple thing but as many TVs have multiple HDMI ports its often overlooked.

Do the same with your monitor as they can switch between DVI and HDMI if the said Monitor has both options, it could just need swapping over to HDMI.

Lastly I would completely uninstall your graphics driver and use this application Driver Fusion (note the warning on 3rd party bundled applications and check the install and only install the application and not the bundled software) and uninstall the driver.

Then re-install the latest NVidia driver from ASUS HERE for your model, reboot and test. I would have linked directly to the driver but don't know if your 32bit/64bit and the exact model of card.

And i dont know if this helps, but my graphics card is: NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G

Answer:Help with HDMI output

Right click on your desktop and go into your Nvidia Control Panel.From there you should be able to set up the TV as the display. You'll probably have to do this before you connect the TV to the laptop.Or, you might need to right click on desktop and go into "Personalize". Then click on "Display Settings". Then click on "Monitors".

Answer:no hdmi output

Just to clarify, are you trying to use HDMI (small, flat d-shaped connector) or DVI (larger, oblong cream multi-pin)? I take it that you are using an adapter for your vga monitor - does that work on both DVI outputs? Device manager will only show one listing under graphics cards, it's under 'personalise/display' or in NVidia Control Panel that two will be displayed. You first need to check that the monitor works on another system - using the same cable of course."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

Answer:HDMI output

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

Hello. About a week ago my Western Digital 500gb external hard drive stopped being recognised by my PC. When I connect it up to the USB port the green light and everything comes on and it makes all the right sounds but the USB port just won't pick up that theres anything connected. I've tried other USB ports which won't pick it up either. I've tried other peripherals in the ports which work fine. My normal way of dealing with this would probably be to order a new hard drive except for the fact that this particular hard drive contains all my work projects which is typical! I've removed the hard drive from its casing and tried plugging it into my PC as an internal drive which resulted in my PC freezing and then me having to run the windows repair tool off the installation disk... I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong here and would just like some advice so I can put things right.

The x61s does not offer a digital video output.  If your TV has a VGA input (many LCD televisions do), you can use that.  If you only have HDMI/component, then you will need some kind of active converter (degrades quality and not cheap).

I have a ThinkPad Edge E520. I just purchased an HDMI cable and want to display a presentation on a TV. The laptop is not recognizing the TV as an output destination. I have tried a different cable, same problem. I tried plugging a different laptop into the TV with the HDMI cable and it did work. With those variables resolved, it appears the problem is strictly with the ThinkPad. I have adjusted as many settings as posisble under the "screen resolution" interface but it still doesn't work. Help!

I connected an HDMI cable from my lap top to my Onkyo recever to play my digital music through my home theater speakers. When I accidentally closed my laptop while playing the music, everything stopped working so I opened the laptop and the music resumed but the screen remained blank (dark).Now everytime I connect an HDMI cable to the laptop, the screen goes completely dark and comes back as soon as I unplug the HDMI cable.Whatever I am running on the laptaop (music or programs), continues running, I just don't see anything on the screen until I unplug the HDMI cable.I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Windows Vista home premium with an Intel Pentium dual T2390 @ 1.86 GH, a Sigmatel high definition audio codec sound card. a 220 GB hard drive with 136 GB free and 3 GB RAM.Is there a solution somewhere to this problem?Please advice.

I have a two day old G500 with an i7-3632QM CPU and AMD Radeon  8570M graphics adapter. One reason I chose it was for its ability to output the display to a compatible monitor via HDMI, as does my old Asus, but the Lenovo doesn't work. Despite having the display set to Duplicate, when I connect my Samsung TV via HDMI the laptop display goes blank. The TV recognises that a cable is connected as the display changes from a "Port not connected" diplay to a "No signal" display. I've checked the resolution settings are supported by the TV (1280x720) and have now drawn a blank. The laptop came preinstalled with Windows 8.1 and the BIOS version is 78CN24WW(V2.02), board number 3290196201472. It appears to be a known problem. Does Lenovo intend to support the HDMI connection? Thanks in advance.

Answer:G500 no output on HDMI

Hi Scooby,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not getting connected to the External Display using HDMI connection, I suggest you to re-install the display driver in the Laptop and while installing the driver right click on the downloaded file and select ?Run as administrator? option to get it installed without any error.
 
Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Question: HDMI Output Y550

I just received my Y550 this week and am very happy with it so far. I attempted to watch a DVD movie this evening through the HDMI out to my LCD TV, and Media Center died giving me a message that software necessary to watch DVD has not been installed.  The display works great on the TV until pressing play, and I can watch DVDs on the computer's screen with no problems. Any ideas? I am running P7350, GMA 4500HD graphics, Vista Home Premium 64 bit, 4GB ram. Thanks

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?

Answer:No HDMI output to second monitor

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

Hi, I've just bought a new Samsung monitor, but am struggling to get it to work via the HDMI output from my PC.
It works fine from my laptop.
I've managed to see some limited functionality, by using a DVI/HDMI adaptor to my TV, and once booted, plugging in the monitor instead, which seems to trick the PC for a bit (although it won't then book on the monitor).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey

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
Quetzalma

Answer: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.

Question: HDMI Sound Output

Hello Forum, I bought a new laptop 3 days ago.It's a thinkpad E470 (the 20H2 Type). (I3-7100, Intel HD Graphics 620, Conexant Audio)It came without an OS so I installed windows 10 (Pro) and it all runs perfectly.Now to the problem: I can connect a TV via HDMI and the picture works fine.What doesn't work is the HDMI Sound output.Normally in the "playback devices" list there should be an "Intel display audio" entry which should be active when connected to a HDMI output.For me that entry is missing. (And yes I did check for disabled or disconnected devices) I installed the Intel driver from the Lenovo support page for the laptop and I can't use newer ones from Intel because of the Lenovo validation. I did fully uninstall the driver and reinstalled them. If you need any more information just tell me.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y550 that I've had for years, and I recently tried hooking it up to three devices with HDMI in and none of them will display anything from the laptop. It's already set to duplicate whatever image is on the laptop screen, and I've tried adjusting the resolution to a lower resolution without any avail. The laptop knows each device that I've plugged in and allows me to change between duplicate and extend, but nothing will show up on any device. Has anyone else had this issue? And what can I try to fix this? Thanks!

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.

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

Hello guys, I have a Lenovo Y50-70 with nVIDIA GTX 860M and Win 8.1 . Latest drivers. My laptop has only one HDMI port and I will suspect that it is coming from the dedicated GPU... but maybe I'm wrong.  Here it's what's happening: when I connect my TV the output is displayed by the Intel Integrated GPU not by the NVIDIA. I understand there is a setting in nVIDIA Control Panel under Display where I can choose what Graphical Processor to use, but I don't have that option (opened ticket at NVIDIA also) . I've attached a screen to see what's going on... http://i59.tinypic.com/drfae0.jpg Note how both displays are connected to the integrated gpu. I can run games with dedicated gpu just fine, but this one is really bugging me. What's going on? Any help is appreciated!

Hello,

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?

Thanks
 

Answer: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.

Question: Lenovo HDMI output

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.
 

Answer: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.
