I'm trying to connect my Pavilion dv6 to my HDTV using an HDMI cable. I'm getting video, but not audio from the TV speakers. The problem started after I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. I had no problems with HDMI with windows Vista.
I've tried updating/reinstalling the audio drivers from HP's website, but it doesn't work. I've also tried going to the control panel and changing the playback device, but the HDMI audio device icon no longer appears in the playback devices dialogue box. The only playback devices are Speakers and Dual Headphones, Independent Dual Headphones, and SPDIF (Digital Out Via HP Dock.)
Why is the HDMI device not shown in the playback dialogue box?
I have recently purchased Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N laptop with Windows 8 Pro. When I try to connect my laptop to an Acer monitor with an HDMI cable, it gives me a no signal error. But when the same laptop is connected to a Philips monitor using the same cable, it works perfectly. As usual I thought that the monitor was the culprit, but when I connected another laptop to the Acer monitor using the same cable it worked without any errors. So where does the problem lie. The HDMI cable is OK, the laptop is also OK as also the Acer monitor?
So for a while now I've been using my laptop while it's plugged into my tv. But the parts of the screen are cut off (the top, left, right and bottom, which doesn't make sense since there is no reason to cut off all sides) I've seen guides telling you how to disable the overscan in the video card settings or in regedit but the thing is, I HAVE NO VIDEO CARD. The guides online assume you have one, but I don't my laptop is as plain as it gets. How can I disable the overscan (if possible)?
I have searched through my tv's settings but have found nohting even remotely related to overscan settings.I have a hp pavilion 15-n221sa running windows 8.1 and I'm trying to get the display to work on a samsung le46b650 tv.
I have an Acer laptop model 5736. The screen won't light up but I can connect a VGA cable to my tv and see that the computer is working. ( i typed this on it). The screen started acting up a month or two ago and I could close it or re-position it and it would come back on. Today it stopped altogether. I watched a couple of videos on youtube on downloading bios,but that didn't work for me. When i tried to run the bios it said my computer was 64 bit and didn't support the 32 bit bios.
I have recieved at work a lenovo t440 notebook, everything worked fine, untill one day I noticed that I cannot conect to the internet via lan cable. I plug in the cable and it is not detected. I checked the cable to another notebook and it was working. I have a Intel Ethernet Connection I218-LM controller, I have re-installed both network drivers from lenovo and intel websites and nothing works. I've tried as well to get automatically from windows update, no result. Went to bios cheked if the lan connection is enabled, everything was in place. Is there anything I missed? I noticed a weird behaviour, if I connect through wireless network, after sometime the lan connection is established and I can use it, but without wireless connection it doesn't work.

I'm a proud owner of a DELL xps M1730 laptop. Recently I experienced using my laptop on my television screen (LG). However, recently something went wrong. When I try to establish the HDMI connection my laptop won't change it's screen to the television screen.
It changes the resolution on the laptop screen and that's it. When my friend get's here with his xps m1730 it does work for him.
I tried connect a screen trough the DELL quickset but nothing I do seems to help and it is hard to find information on the web concerning this issue. Maybe it is a very easy procedure and I misschanged some of the settings....
I have a dv6500t computer. I recently bought a 23" lcd monitor (HP w2338h) to go with it. I was using the vga cable that came with it, which works perfectly fine. I then bought a link depot hdmi cable to use to connect my monitor. The cable works fine, but when I restart my computer (with the hdmi cable still plugged in) my computer brings up the blue screen that says my computer was shut down to prevent further damage. But when I take the hdmi cable out, this screen doesn't pop up and shut my computer off. Why does the hdmi cable do this?
I am getting an "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password" display on my HP Pavilion x360 and cannot start-up my computer. After trying to figure out my password i get the message "system Disabled" with the code 73526620.
My hp pavilion x360 was working fine today inthe morning when I turned it on it all seemed normal I put in the log in password and once I hit enter the screen went black bu the cursor was still showing.
I applied the recommended bios update yesterday and now the touch screen nearly continuously activates when I'm not using it. which renders the mouse pretty much useless too. I know HP will release a bios that fixes this eventually but in the meantime how do I turn off the touch screen?
I am considering a 24" monitor which I need t share as a second on my 1710, as well as the primary on my gaming rig (2X8800GTX SLI).
I want to drive it @ 1920*1200. I don�t want to use the VGA connector for one of the machines, when I do resolution drops to a max of around 1600*1100. So, I am looking at some of the monitors that have DVI and HDMI connectors. The thought was to connect one of the machines via HDMI with a special cable like one from bluejean cable, and use the other straight through, and choose a monitor with an easy one touch toggle between the two.
I read some horror stories that the HDMI link via a DVI-HDMI cable isn't optimal, and someitmes has its own resolution or sync limits. Does anyone know about this?
My other choice is a cheapo DVI switch, but it would be cool just to hit the input button.
I have a Sony Vaio 17 inch full HDMI laptop using Vista. I have been using a HDMI cable connected to my TV for a few months now all working fine yet today for no apparent reason the sound has started coming through my laptop rather than the TV. I have gone to the control panel and tried switching the default sound to the realtec digital however this did not work and I ended up with no sound at all.I have tried two different players both VLC and Zoom player.
I have tried two HDMI cables for 3 year old HP Pavilion g6 to connect with HDTV. Both cause the HP to overheat and shutdown. It worked a year ago but former cable broke. I have dusted by blower underneath. I was trying to watch free movie on HULU. Does not overheat when using otherwise.
I have a Latitide E6500 with the Nividia Quadro NVS160M graphics card. I'm running Vista Business 32bit. My E6500 vid outs are s-vga and displayport. I use my laptop mainly in my home office and I would like some more real estate, when in the office 1440x900 is just not enough. When looking at monitors displayport does not seem a common input but most have HDMI.
I then looked at monoprice and saw two possible options for displayport -> HDMI, an adapter or a cable. What is the difference between the two and which should I use if I want both audio and video signals transmitted? Or am I stuck using a monitor that has a displayport input?
The speakers on my laptop have stopped working all of a sudden! But the headphones do though there is a low buzzing sound when i use them. When in control plan to look at the problem it tells me they are working. Laptop is only a few months old!
I just got this U530 and wanted to use a dual monitor setup with a monitor that only supports DVI inputs (Samsung SyncMaster BX2335). I bought a cable for the purpose: an HDMI to DVI-D cable. I cannot seem to get the laptop to recognize that there is a monitor attached, however.
Am I going to have to use a port replicator instead or use some sort of USB 3 to DVI setup? I have no other video output options built into this computer.
I bought a Roline DP to HDMI cable hoping to be able to watch HD content in my livingroom and not having to plug an extra audio cable as DP should carry sound too.
When I do the same as on the youtube video, I get the following settings in the control panels: [URL] ....
But there's no sound coming out of the TV. I've tried it on my SyncMaster PC/TV Screen and on my Samsung TV in the living room. On the TV in the living room, the windows audio manager shows the device, but it cannot be selected as show above. It stays grey.
I've got a T420s with discrete nVidia Optimus graphics (Quadro NVS4200M). Driver version is 22.214.171.124 for nVidia HD-Audio and 126.96.36.19996 for NVS 4200M. This information comes from the device manager. I installed my system from scratch and used ThinkVantage System Update 4.
Where the problem comes from? I could only imagine that the cable isn't capable of carrying audio, but that seems rather illogic, does it?
I am unable to connect my XPS 1330 to a Dell 2408 monitor via HDMI. I am running Vista Business and the 1330 has the integrated Intel graphics chip. Connecting the two with a VGA connector seems to work, but not via HDMI.
Also anyone have experience with the "Display port" input on the Dell Monitor? What is that all about? is it basically HDMI without sound, or something like that? Why have that and still have the DVI inputs?
