Graphic Cards :: How To Get Full Screen On TV When Connected Via HDMI
Aug 8, 2014
i finally worked out how to get full screen on my tv when connected via hdmi from laptop, which is great. only now found that when i shut the laptop screen i lose the full screen on the tele and it sizes down to about 50% with the black boarder. on my laptop control panel "what does computer do when i shut the lid" i have selected "do nothing" on both wired and battery modes. How I can close the lid and keep full screen? (the tv is a celcus full hd smart something or other and laptop is hp running windows 8.1,
I have a AMD 5650 that shows a black bar that is 1 inch on the left and right and about .5 inches on the bottom on HDMI. I've used the drivers that Microsoft provided and also beta drivers from AMD from Febuary 2014, nothing seems to work. I've taken a picture, I've underlined where the back bars are in red.
My wife has a nice new VAIO laptop. We connect it to a Samsung TV with an HDMI cable. Initially there were video artifacts on the TV screen, but after some fiddling they seemed to go away. Today they have returned. I have tried another HDMI cable and it didn't work.
The artifacts are only on the TV screen and not on the laptop display. They cannot be captured with a screenshot (I just tried this and am posting from my computer).
The web search picture (HDMI.jpg) shows small vertical lines in a row after some of the text.
I have two displays, an HDTV connected through HDMI and an older LCD connected via DVI. All my audio comes through the TV. In fact, I've disabled the on board audio device on the motherboard. I noticed that the Audio tab in the Catalyst Control Center says "Your displays do not support audio.", but it shows my Panasonic TV in the Playback devices. The playback does work, but I get weird mutes.If I go full screen in Youtube or Netflix the sound mutes for like 30 seconds. When i anything (change tabs in Chrome, click a link, move windows around in a VM) on the other display, the sound mutes for 30 seconds. I basically am unable to do anything on my other display while something is streaming.
When I hook my laptop up to the TV with a HDMI cable my laptop screen goes dark and the TV only shows the task bar and the desktop background. Sound works. No mouse or actual programs are displayed. I would like to mirror the TV to my desktop. My laptop is a HP Pavillion Dv7-4285dx running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit.
Well I have been having issues with my monitor. I had a Toshiba laptop I had hooked up to my monitor, everything worked great. It then crashed, I got a new Dell with Windows 8 64bit and Intel graphics. I have an HDMI to VGA adapter cause my laptop doesn't have a VGA port and monitor doesn't have HDMI. So I hook it up and get it to work but "Input Not Supported" was floating around the screen.
So I changed the resolution. The only resolution that makes the "Input Not Supported" to go away is 1600X200. Well its clear picture but I have the annoying black bars on the side of my screen. I have looked around and everyone says to go to the CCC but I can't find it on here and from what I understand that is for AMD only(if I'm mistaken how to make it work cause I have attempted it). So is there an Intel version or how do I fix it?
Last night I got hold of a 27" BenQ GL2750HM, so far so good. I have my main display from the DVI port to HDMI port on the screen and my secondary screen is my 60" TV which is connected through HDMI port on the graphic card into the HDMI port in my reciever.
The main scheme for my setup is like:
- Radeon 7970 DVI > HDMI Main monitor (BenQ GL2750) - Radeon 7970 HDMI > HDMI Reciever (ONKYO TX-NR609) - ONKYO TX-NR609 > 60" TV
So to the problem now. When the HDMI cable is connected to the graphic card, I need to have my TV ON in order for my main monitor, the BenQ, to work and if I turn off the TV the BenQ is getting black, like a standby mode, however, there is "no signal" to the monitor.
This was never a problem with my other screen, I could have the HDMI cable connected to the graphic card, the TV off and the reciever OFF without the main monitor went black.
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.
As the title says, I've tried connecting my TV to my computer with an HDMI cable, and the video part works, but no sound plays. When I checked the list of playback devices, the TV appeared (as shown below), but it apparently cannot play sound.
I don't think I know anything beyond what I've posted,
Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.
I've bought an HDMI cable to connect my laptop to TV, i've gone into the control panel and checked that "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" are both allowed and still i dont seem to get an option for HDMI for audio. The picture has come through fine, but nothing I do with the audio seems to work.
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 have a gateway NE56R41u. With that aside, today i played the sims 3 when it has a warning about my graphics card or whatever, so i went to my screen resolution to see if i can fix the problem. Unfortunately, the place where i can choose what my resolution is greyed out, so i cannot change a thing. Heres a picture .....
I installed windows 8 on my pc and it doesn't use the whole screen. There's a margin all the way around the screen. I have a 23" 1080p display and AMD Radeon 7450 graphics card.Also, OpenGL is not working at all, for anything.
I have an HP media center M7360N desktop with a Pentium D dual core, 4gb ram and a Ge Force 6200 SE card running 220.127.116.114 drivers. I get this screen mess sometimes when on the web and on the desktop.
I know how to select the second screen options, however, my Surface Pro and our Samsung Laptop both running Windows 8 cannot detect a second monitor/screen. We are connecting via the HDMI port, but it will not display no matter what option we choose nor whether we run it from the desktop or apps. This is what we use for work to display presentations for clients.
Basically my screens kinda broken. 2 flies kept passing around me and I tried swatting it away with my hand, and when I did that my earphonescaught me hand and one of the buds hit my screen and this happened.. I took a picture of it to see what it looks like..
I installed windows 8 on an Acer aspire 8320TG with AMD HD 6370 graphics card. This laptop is according to Acer not suitable for windows 8 but it worked. However, my screen is extended to the right and I can't switch this off. Since I don't have a second monitor I only notice this when my mouse sometimes gets lost or when I make a screenshot. I tried changing some settings in the "screen resolution" dialogue, without success. Am I just not finding the right settings for that or is it some compatibility-issue?
I installed an EVGA GT630 1GB but it doenst work properly with Windows 8 Pro x64. All I have is a black screen, but the computer isnt freezing, 'cos I can hear the logon and shutdown sounds. I've tested it on Server 2003 R2 x64 (XPDM) and it worked just fine.
I'm using Windows 8.1pro,also I use HDMI to sometime output video files on a TV screen,that works fine. HDMI cable is always plugged in,primary display is set to my computer monitor.I don't always use TV screen and because of existing cable connection my OS extends image to second screen and my mouse cursor alway disappear when it goes to borders,that is an annoying situation,is there a way to disable/eanble extend display on second screen without unplug the cable,just like I can set default output sound device (computer/hdmi sound) ?
I am using a Ideapad Z580 with Windows 8.1 64 bit. All was working fine. But I formatted the C drive and reinstalled my Windows 8.1 OS. Then I installed all my drivers. After a reboot the screen started to jump(flickering).The top part of the screen(small portion) is appearing and disappearing in the bottom area. I tried to change the refresh rate.But it is locked in 60,and no other options are available.
I have a laptop where my LCD is broken on the left side, but the right side works fine. Is there a way I can change my display to only show on the right side? I've managed to make the display horizontally smaller, but I can't figure out how to change the center to the right side. This is annoying because I have to re-size every window every time I open it, and then I have to constantly scroll back and forth on web pages. I'd rather be able to maximize and have it only on the right side. See the attached picture to see what I'm talking about.
My netbook(Samsung NC110 with 1024*600 Screen Resolution and Intel GMA 3150) is running Windows 8.1 x64 now. I want to use all features of Windows 8, so i want to set Custom resoltion like 1366*768. I was trying to change some keys in the regedit, but the picture was very bad, cause my screen is 16:9, and 1024*768 or 1152*864 resolutions is 4:3. I want to get some utility to set Custom Resolutions, that bigger that real resolution of my display.
For last couple days I've been going through a minor computer issue. I wasn't doing anything special, I just turned the computer off. And the next day the problem occured; After bios and Windows 8 loading screen ( the little dots going round, just below the windows 8 icon ) my screen goes black and there's no signal to the display. I've already tried formatting my hdd and installing windows 8, also tried doing Reset option, from the Windows 8 troubleshot system. I can't access my Safe Mode, because it tells that Windows can't finish the installation in safe mode ( After installing the new system I format all the data and it goes just fine until the windows icon and "Preparin your devices" sign. It goes 100% and gets black again.
I am running Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010 on Windows 8.1 Preview.
Yesterday, I had to purchase a new desktop PC monitor. It's a Samsung S22C300H .
The resolution is higher than my previous monitor. As a result, when I open Microsoft Word and have it display in Print Layout mode, the page has shifted from the center of the screen to the far left.
(The resolution on the new monitor is 1920 x 1080.)
I've been used to the page being in the center of the screen for the past 20 years! I've lowered the resolution, which did center the page in Word, but the resolution is nowhere near as sharp as the high resolution mode.
Is there a way to get the Print Layout page in Word to be centered on the screen in this high resolution? If so, what is the procedure?
