Graphic Cards :: HMDI Output Once Recognized Now Not Showing Up As Detected?
Oct 19, 2013
-Running my PC with a Radeon HD 7700 on Windows 8, main display is monitor in DVI port, secondary display is HDMI running to my LG TV for playing videos (only enabled some of the time in AMD Catalyst Control Center under "Desktop Management>Creating and Arranging Desktops")
-Normally, I enable the 2nd desktop (my TV) through the HDMI output of my video card easily. However, about a week ago I ran into an issue: while the OS detected the display, it only recognized it as a monitor in 640x480 resolution.
-I tried several things to fix the display issue, but was finally successful by changing the HDMI cable connected to the TV side to the second HDMI port on the back of the TV (that is, going from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2). This fixed the issue immediately.
-Good till yesterday. Now the HDMI 2 is no longer detected as a valid display. HDMI 1 (the original connected port) is still detectable, but it's still having the 640x480 max resolution issue (and no audio output as well).
-HDMI 3 on the TV currently works, but that is the final HDMI port on the TV, and I don't want to continue moving the cable without resolving the issue. I have tested the TV HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 ports with other hardware, and they seem to be working without fault with a DVD player or Media box, so I doubt the issue is surrounding my TV.
So I recently bought a new computer. I was using the GTS 450 on the old one no problem not even a month ago. I have attempted to install it on my new pc. Switched out to a Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU which is operating just fine. I placed the video card into the primary pci slot and powered it with the 6-pin connector. Put everything back together and started her up. PC turns on fine, with even the fan going on the video card. But no video output. I'm stuck. What can I do? The drivers won't install themselves without the hardware.
I have an ASUS s550C running windows 8 and my HDMI to my 32" RCA flatscreen doesn't work anymore. The cable works fine with the xbox, correct tv modes, but now as soon as I plug in the HDMI to the Ultrabook the Ultrabooks screen goes black and the tv screen says unsupported. I have tried extended, 2nd screen only, and all screen settings, 720/1080I etc.
I just installed the Windows 8.1 Preview 64-bit last night and am loving the improvements over Windows 7 Pro 64-bit!!! I am running it on a Dell Optiplex 745 Tower.
My only problem is that my ATI FireGL V3100 is not being recognized by windows at all. I checked in the device manager and it doesn't even show up. I currently have a monitor hooked up to the card and it is working fine. Unfortunately, AMD doesn't have a driver for Windows 8. For that matter it didn't have on for Windows 7 either, only a Vista driver, but it worked fine in Windows 7. Same thing with the Dell drivers, worked for Windows 7, but not for Windows 8, even though the drivers were for Vista 64-bit.
I am wanting to hook up a second monitor, but when I do, it doesn't even detect the second monitor. All it does mirror the first display onto the second monitor. I looked into the Screen Resolution settings and even tried clicking Detect. Nothing. It found my first monitor, a Acer AL1916. Even when I unplug the Acer, it thinks the other monitor, a HP LP1965, is the same thing, it doesn't change the name of the monitor. I even tried going to HP to get a driver for my second monitor and installed that, to no avail.
I have just rebuilt my PC and decided to make the jump from Windows XP to Windows 8. The jump has not been smooth, but it looks like I have ironed out my biggest problem (incorrect installation due to not creating a system partition therefore Windows 8 = no DVD, no boot; rookie error).
Now I am stuck with an issue - windows detects my only screen as more than one. Sometimes it thinks I have two, more often it thinks I have 3 or 4. Installing the current nVidia drivers did not work.
What I have at the moment is 2 generic non-PnP monitors and 2 generic PnP monitors detected, according to device manager. nVidia control panel calls them Dell SX2210, VGA display, (i can't recall the 3rd one, I'm on my laptop now), and TV. Windows display setup calls two of the SX2210, and the other two are either generic non-PnP or PnP monitors. In nVidia control panel it looks as though I have a clone setup (2 screens enabled) with the Dell SX2210 and the VGA display. In windows display setup it looks as though I have a clone setup (2 screens enabled) with Dell SX2210 and generic monitor.
I have repeatedly unchecked the secondary monitors in both nVidia control panel and windows display setup, leaving me with what should be a single monitor arrangement and 3 disabled monitors. This works until I restart my computer, which then reverts back to what it was before. This is OK as a workaround most of the time, but sometimes when I boot up the computer it detects the wrong screen as the primary and I get a monitor which goes to power save mode. The solution to this is Win Key + P and change the display selection while blind, which works now I know how. Sometimes my screen will refresh (installing programs or drivers) and I get the same result. Detect displays also results in no signal to my monitor.
Currently using DVI from the graphics card to DVI on the monitor.

*Yes I know the 260 is an older card, it has come from my old system for economics reasons (to be upgraded later), but it was working perfect on that machine.
I have an HP media center M7360N desktop with a Pentium D dual core, 4gb ram and a Ge Force 6200 SE card running 22.214.171.1244 drivers. I get this screen mess sometimes when on the web and on the desktop.
My windows update, windows defender and lots of other programs including Vistart start menu refuse to work. I run the Windowsupdatediagnostic download and it tells me the SFC Output is corrupted or missing. Recently the BITS wasn't working but for some reason found the windows events log was disabled in services. I went to black vipers site and reset all of the services to a standard or safe setting. Yet I cant get anything to work. Ive been running the sfc /scannow in command prompt and it says it found problems but was unable to fix them. It says to check the log files, but when i go to open them they refuse to open and say i don't have administration privileges???
I suddenly got BITS working recently and i swore that would have fixed everything but to no avail. I am afraid to have to to a factory refresh but the problem is I foolishly listened to microsoft suggestion in the store to upgrade this from windows 8 to 8.1 therefore it automatically deletes the windows 8.0 partition on the computer thereby erasing its original operating system with cd key....
I have heard of ones doing a factory reset or refresh and finding since that upgrade they cant get it running without them purchasing it....
I have done a system restore, but the last system restore was a month ago and unfortunately that was when the system was exactly the same as this.
So right now i need to try every possible avenue I can take and want to see if its possible to do a factory refresh without it freaking out because the cd key on the bottom of the computer is for a windows 8.0 and this is the useless upgraded 8.1. This is a Toshiba C55-A 5300 laptop
My computer is hp envy dv6 7280sf notebook with 2 GPUs intel graphics HD 4000 and Nvidia Gefoce 630 M running windows 8 64x.
After making an free upgrade online for windows 8.1 which run successfully, both gpus were ok...
But after receiving a windows update with new drivers for intel graphics 4000 gpu , after install and restart , the computer freezes on blank black screen at windows startup with no mouse or anything only backlight.
So safemode was succeful but i figured that the update for windos update was the cause and graphics drivers were installed so i removed the drivers for intel graphics and itried to reboot the computer so the restart was succeful but the intel graphics card was unistalled and no drivers were automatically installed so i tried to download and install the drivers from hp and intel website for windows 8.1 however the install fails.
Automatic install from device manager failed both online and from computer and even from manual driver selection.
So therefore the install failed in safe mode , and the high def audio device ( on screen audio possibly) failed and the device was not recongnized (no drivers installed) so i'm stuck without anydrivers for the integrated gpu and the games are no longer able to run normally even if the nvidia card is on.
I tried downloading an installing Windows 8 drives but it failed to install also , for instance any new install of drovers seems to fail for me even for external usb hard drive.
Here is the problem... everything boots just fine and runs with 2 of the GPU's installed. I have the latest AMD 13.12 drivers, and the AMD APP SKD installed. When I add the 3rd GPU though, windows will auto detect it as a Radeon 7900 with the caution sign, AND/OR a r9 200 series card, also with the caution sign, most times BOTH. Then it randomly freezes the system. A couple of times I got it to run long enough just by luck I guess, to install the 13.12 drivers on the 3rd GPU, but then in a few minuites the system would freeze again.
2 GPU's run just fine, the problem only shows up when the 3rd card is installed, and it happens on any of the 4 16x slots, or both 1x slots on the MOBO. It doesn't matter if the GPU's are directly on the MOBO, or on 1x16 risers. There are plenty of folks running this set up with up to 6 GPU's, so I know it can be done, but I must be missing something somewhere in the windows set up.
I've got a bit of a strange issue that I haven't had with previous OSes on this PC. I'm running a Dell OptiPlex 380 with Win 8 x64 at the office and I have to run 2 video cards for all of my screens. I have a GeForce 8400GS in the PCI-E slot and a GeForce 6200 in the PCI slot.
Previous to the Win 8 install, it worked fine. Booted exactly as I had shut it off. Now, with 8 - it's killing my PCI-E card presumably when it puts the screens to sleep when I leave for the day. So I'm coming in to all of my windows being moved to the PCI card's monitor (only one hooked to it) and I have to reboot to get PCI-E card to come back.
If I check the screen properties, I see only the screen hooked to the PCI card. I've changed the setting in the BIOS for the first video card to Auto and also tried the PCI-E selection and it's the same either way.
Why on earth would it default to the PCI card rather than the PCI-E card?
i am on windows 8.i am using HP laptop.this is my ccc version.
i got 2 problems:well first one is that i can't update to windows 8.1 as the update always hang on 82% and after that my laptop automatically shutsdown i don't know whats the reason is and that's why i am stuck at windows 8 till now although have 8.1 ISO but i don't want to install it as i have to erase my my windows 8 which came pres-installed so i will loose my genuine windows 8 .now i want to know what if i open the 8.1 installer and install it from a virtual tool like Deamon although it gives an option to keep files app setting safe but i fear that it would conflict with 8 and i would have to format my laptop then ok now to the major problem i just recently purchased Watch Dogs and installed it.I played the first mission and got busted so the mission failed and it began to reload and then a error pops up saying watch dogs have stopped working upon googling i found out that this is due to DUAl AMD Graphics so they stated that i should disable it but i cant find any option of disabling DUAL Graphics.
i play a browser game on chrome named begone nplay with my charger plugged in i get 100-130 fps but whenever i unplugged it it drops to like 20-40 fps . i checked power settings and its always on high performance .
I just decided to turn loose Windows 8 RP on "bare metal" here as opposed to a VM. I didn't even bother to mess with video under a VM, but with the bare metal install, I've run into some trouble.
At first, media player didn't seem to play anything, including .wmv files. Messing around, I unchecked the "Direct X acceleration" box and that allowed it to play .wmv files. However, it still won't play .mp4 files -- no video, just sound, and Media Player will hang trying to exit.
It did this with a clean install with only the Windows supplied video driver. My video card has been obsoleted by AMD now (HD 4200 chipset) and I couldn't use the new Windows 8 preview driver package, but I did try installing the AMD 12.4 driver in Win7 compatibility mode. That worked fine it seems, but it still won't play .mp4 files. Turning the Direct X acceleration back on still kills .wmv playback as well.
Win7, both x64 and 32-bit played .mp4 files fine right out of the box on this machine.
I have the following graphics card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Windforce 2X NVIDIA Graphics Card - 2GB installed on the system in my sig, what are the correct BIOS setting for the GPU, The options are: PCI Slot, PEG, PEG1, PEG2 and PEG3
I'm having issues with one of my GPU's fans (it features a dual-fan cooling) and will have to fix it soon. The problem is, it's making an annoying noise and I was thinking if I could just block it for the time being, however brutally that sounds.
So, the question is - provided the GPU doesn't reach critical temperatures (I'm going to monitor this obviously) - would this create any additional risks, like overcurrent or something? (I don't play games, but it's a HD6950, so it does emit a lot of heat).
I actually think it's integrated, how do I do it? According to running a random game on systemrequirementslab.com (Dead Island), my dedicated video RAM is 32mb. It's not a custom built, I bought it from the store.
Here are specs according to dxdiag: System Info: Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) System Manufacturer: Dell Inc.

I am on my work computer, a DELL desktop with Windows 8.1, and I've been using a dual monitor setup for months, both with Windows 8 and 8.1. One monitor is connected via the VGA input, and the other is through a VGA to HDMI adapter. Again, they've been working flawlessly for months. It was a plug 'n play setup that took a minute and never had an issue.
I came in today and the second screen was blank. In the screen setup menu it recognized it and allowed me to adjust between extending, mirroring, etc. But after I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it no longer recognizes it. It simply cannot find a second monitor plugged in. Both screens work when plugged directly into the VGA port separately but not when plugged in the way they've worked for months.
I just purchased a new windows 8 PC. I was attempting to hook the computer up to my tv through hdmi (the pc has no VGA input) and when I went through the normal paces to put the display on my tv (display desktop only on 2), the signal did not transfer and there is no display on either my tv or pc! how to revert the display back to my pc monitor without being able to see anything? Acer support was less than useful. It's an acer aspire z3-605 all-in-one pc.
I've noticed that whenever I unplug my charger my brightness dims down to a point where I know its on, but I can't use it. Usually I have to put my computer to sleep and turn it back on to get it to fix. Also, the brightness wont adjust in anyway when its on. I've tried the function keys and the setting in the side bar. I have a toshiba laptop running windows 8.1 . I also have recently completely wiped it thinking it was a virus of some sorta with no change.
My Sapphire AMD HD 7870 just bit the dust so it has been sent back with an RMA. I had hoped to replace it with an ASUS AMD HD 3850 but Windows 8.1 will not work with it. There is an error message on a blue screen something about a header (I don't have the exact error message today).
I suspected it was a driver problem so uninstalled the existing driver and tried to install the latest AMD one. I can uninstall OK but as soon as I reboot the Microsoft driver installs itself giving me no opportunity to install the AMD one.
Today, I got a new graphics card for my computer that is about 5 years old. Here are my specs:
Dell Inspiron 530 Intel Core 2 Duo e2500 2.33 GHz Processor NEW GPU: MSI Geforce GT 440 (N440GT) OLD GPU: NVIDIA Geforce 8600GT 3GB ram 300 watt power supply (unsure of 12V ratings) Windoes 8 Pro 64bit
I installed my GT440 into my computer today, and the card worked fine when there was no drivers installed. I uninstalled my older drivers from my 8600 and installed drivers for the 440. When I restarted, I got the BSOD with an error message saying VIDEO_DTR_FALIURE. What does this message mean, and what can I do to fix this BSOD problem? This didnt happen on my old card, but it does on my new card? Is there a problem with my power supply, or is it an issue with the drivers?
I just bought an Nvidia 620 card today. I run both Linux and Windows on my system. When I go to Linux, everything work fine. But in Windows 8, the GPU fan start to scream. Its too noisy! I even updated the drivers.
I recently updated to Windows 8.1 (64-bit), and I immediately noticed that my resolution had taken a strange turn. Everything except the taskbar seems to be a lower resolution than before. This suspicion was only strengthened when I launched a game that I had running in 1440x900 windowed, and it didn't fit properly on the screen. I checked my display settings and used printscreen to check the resolution and both said 1920x1080, but when I used Puush to take a desktop screenshot, it came out as 1536x864, whereas before installing 8.1, desktop screenshots came out as 1920x1080. I tried changing the resolution and changing it back, but I'm still having the issue.
I have 64MB for video memory reported in BIOS but my Adapter shows only 32MB, it's normal and I am looking at two different things or something isn't right, I have the latest Intel HD4000 drivers installed.
