Hey everyone,

PC Info:
Windows 10 Genuine

NVidia GTX 980ti
8GB RAM 1600
128GB SSD Boot
480GB SSD for games
1TB HDD @7200rpm for movies

I recently purchased a Display port to HDMI adapter for my PC. I did this because my TV (SONY XBR55X930D) displays 4k HDR and I want to take advantage of its ENHANCED HDMI setting. Now, when I hook the Display port end of this adapter into the 980ti and then plug the HDMI into the adapter for my TV I get video and support for ENHANCED HDMI, however, I receive no audio output whatsoever. I'll run DOOM 2016 I get video @4k but nothing for audio. Can't hear a thing whether its a movie, streaming audio through SoundCloud...nothing. I'm told that there should be support for audio with these adapters.

Is this not the case? Am I missing a setting?

I've done some research but am having difficulty finding a solution.

I am using HDMI 2.0a cables that support HDCP 2.2.

This is the adapter I purchased:

Hello, I would love to ask for some help!
I've recently purchased the newer Dell XPS 13 9360 Non-touch (not the 2 in 1) and am having some trouble with using an external monitor. The screen (on the external monitor) keeps on flickering and has a very unstable connection. 
I've searched and found that apparently lowering the power output of the WIFI network adapter can fix this problem. 
The problem is that the current XPS's wifi adapter doesn't allow the power output to be changed. The previous fixes were geared towards intel wifi adapters.
The general power settings for the computers doesn't show wifi card power controls.

I have updated all the drivers for the computer including the wireless adapter. Still the options doesn't change.

Has anyone found a way to get a stable external monitor to work with the Killer Wireless Adapter cards?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:XPS 13 9360 External Monitor Flicker with USB C - HDMI Adapter [Killer Wireless Adapter]

For what it's worth: For me (XPS 13 9360, QHD, i7, 16 GB, Killer WiFi), external screens are perfectly stable, even with wireless being on relatively high throughput load, albeit not high power (energy) load.
I am connecting both HDMI and DisplayPort displays, each with cheap native USB-C adapters (i.e. through Thunderbolt). I also have full success with a Dell DA200, through its built-in HDMI graphics adapter.

Hey,
I have two problems so i will explain the scenario then number out the issue. I had a new hard drive installed, when i booted the laptop, it worked well. The wifi in my area is very low so I was told I can use a wireless adpter to "boost" the signal strength received. I was given a Encore ENUWI-N3 Wireless Adapter to use. I installed the utility program from the official website and the computer still did not recognise the device, so I deleted the program. I then lost connection to the internet, and at the time i thought the wifi can dropped (i later realised that was not the case since my phone's wifi was still connected). I then reinstalled the software ( the executible file was saved on the harddrive), and it give me the same message that there are no drivers for the adapter.

I shifted my attention to my failed internet connection, after troubleshooting it give me a error 28 message stating that there were no drivers installed for the Broadcom wireless adapter that is internally installed. I tried a system restore to before i tried installing the Encore adapter, and still nothing, the system continued to give me the same message and it registered in the "device manager" as unknown device named "ethernet controller" with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark.

Is there an image quality difference between if I use HDMI to DP or DP to HDMI adapter?
a,5870nd both will work with Eyeinfinity, yes?
 

A:HDMI to DP or DP to HDMI adapter?

No, there is no loss of quality using DisplayPort to HDMI or to another interface. I don't think there is a HDMI to DP adapter.

Eyefinity requires that all monitors beyond the second one are connected through a DP port, but an adapter can be used.

HI,  I have an hp envy laptop (m6-aq005dx) and it has a usb-c port. I wanted to display a second output monitor. I have already used my hdmi port so i thought the hp usb-c to hdmi adapter would work for my laptop since there was no software or drivers needed. Anyays, it is not working. everytime i plug in the display adapter, it says the connection may not work, try another cable. I have tried several hdmi cables, and even the adapter by itself. Is my laptop not compatible? i have also tried a few different display drivers for my laptop. When looking into the device manager, is shows up as a usb adapter but with error.

Having said that, there are two types, active and passive. The type you get will depend on your configuration. For a three monitor configuration, for example, you will want an active converter.

Not too long ago, I bought a VGA to HDMI converter to connect my laptop to my TV, but I wasn't able to get it to work, and the tech support guy I talked to from Monoprice's chat suggested it was probably incompatible with my TV, so I had it returned, and then I bought this on the recommend of the same guy: http://www.monoprice.com/products/p..._id=1011403&p_id=8079&seq=1&format=2&rep=mike

But the problem is, I hooked it up, installed the drivers, and still I'm not getting any picture on my TV screen. I have the input set to the correct station. Everything's installed correctly. And I even reinstalled the drivers from the website of the company that produces the adapter. Still nothing.

Do you guys have any ideas? Because I've spent a lot of time trying to get this to work, and I'm not having any luck. I've asked on a couple different places, and I haven't had much luck there, either. If anyone here can help me out, I would really appreciate it.

Hello:

I'm really hoping someone here has experience with this issue and can help me. I have a 37" Philips CRT TV which I have connected to my computer so that I can watch videos on it. I have been using it with an older laptop that has S-video output and it has been working perfectly. Recently I upgraded my computer and my two modern graphics cards do not support S-video, only DVI or HDMI. I have been using an HDMI to composite adapter with no issues except that I had to adjust the screen size to make it fit. However, the image quality is pretty bad, so I just purchased an HDMI to component adapter. I am able to make it work by setting the resolution to 480i, but when I attempt to resize the screen, the image becomes distorted beyond recognition. I really need to adjust the screen size because the edges of the screen are cut off. I have tried changing the resolution, but it doesn't work unless it's set to the default 480i resolution. I have also tried a VGA to component adapter (with a DVI to VGA adapter) and that didn't work at all. I really hope I can make this work so that I can use component instead of composite. The only other option I can think of is to install a third graphics card that supports S-video, but I'm not sure I could find one that is compatible with Windows 7.

If you're wondering why I don't just get an HDTV, it's because I play a lot of classic video game consoles that look best on my old CRT TV. I'm ver... Read more

I have 2 TVs currently serving as my screens. I've lately been helping family and friends fix small issues on their computers. I've come across a few PCs that have only a VGA Display Port, while both of my screens only have HDMI ports.
I asked someone at a local parts store, if a wire that is VGA male one side and HDMI male the other, would do the job. He told me in long detail why that would never work, that I needed a signal converter to change the display signal.
Basically he said when adapting a VGA screen to a HDMI port was possible, and the reverse (HDMI screen to VGA port in pc) is not.

My question is, if I bought the cord linked below, would I have to do anything else other than just plugging it in? Or do I indeed need this converter I was told about?

Thanks in advance

You will need a signal converter of some type. A simple wire cable with different connectors on each end will not work. A VGA output has three analog video signals. An HDMI input expects all digital signals.

So a few days ago I got my PC, after plugging everything in I realised my monitor uses a VGA cable which isn't supported by my graphics card,so I used a VGA to HDMI adapter and plugged it in. I realised my resolutions are messed up, it shows more resolutions than it should ex. 1440x900(native) but I can go all the way up to 1920x1080 which my monitor can't support, even though I'm on my native resolution, everything looks bad quality, it's especially visible in games, I literally have to turn anti aliasing to the max for it to look playable, but here is the worst part, I have performance issues, fps drops and overall bad performance for this gpu and cpu combo, looking at some benchmarks on YouTube I see a pretty big difference in performance. I don't know what to do and is it because of the monitor or am I just missing something?

Hey, I use a HP Envy x-360 m6 Convertible laptop running windows 10. I tried connecting it to my old ASUS VH192D monitor using a HDMI to VGA converter (the laptop doesn't have VGA port and the monitor doesn't have a HDMI port).  When I first connected the monitor to my laptop both the laptop and the monitor adapted to their native resolutions and were working fine. I tried to change the ASUS monitor's resolution to 1080 (native resolution 1366x768) which threw me an error saying OUT OF RANGE.  I then changed the resolution back to its dafault value but the error message was still being displayed. I hard reset the monitor and also tried a software reset. Both were unsuccessful.  On doing some research, I found that there could be numerous causes to my problem. I checked all the possibilities but I still can't find a solution. The first thing I checked was the cable and the adapter. I plugged the cable, adapter and monitor to all my other computers and it seemed to work fine. I then checked if all my drivers were up to date. I updated my display drivers individually (though they were already up to date) and also restarted my computer numerous times. As I was trying to solve my issue I noticed that my laptop no longer recognised the second monitor.

Hi, I try to connect my two HDMI displays to one USB C port (of my brand new Lenovo P52s), with the WavLink Thunderbolt 3 to Dual 4k HDMI Adapter.Currently only one display gets the signal. When I disconnect the working display, the other display gets the signal.So for the moment, I can only use one at the time.I found an explanation on internet about ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock Setup, explaining that I should make changes in the BIOS setup:change Thunderbolt in BIOS Assist Mode to enabledchange Security Level to No SecurityIs this indeed the correct way to get it working?Thanks a lot for your advise!

I recently bought a USB3.0 to HDMI display adapter, I'm on windows 10 and when I try to plug in my second monitor at native resolution, 1920x1080, the 2nd monitor is flickering and I can only see about an inch of the screen at the top. I've tried installing new drivers but that isn't fixing the problem. I am able to use my 2nd display at much lower resolutions but it doesn't look good.

Hi there, Recently, my USB type-c to HDMI adapter on Yoga 900S (900ML) with windows 10 beame not working. This had perfectly worked for these two years. Two weeks ago, the adapter had restricted resolution to FHD from QWHD, but it finally shows nothing on the external monitor. I have tried two other type-c to HDMI adapters and monitors, but they did not come work. More recently, USB type-A port and Blue tooth adapter were also not working. But they were fixed by delete and re-installation on device manager. A month ago, I updated windows 10 from 1709 to 1803. These errors come after this. Does anyone have the same issue or fix it? I would appreciate your advice. Best

I have an L560 with Intel HD Graphics 520 and mini DP port.  I'm trying to connect to a Philips 40" 4K LED BDM4065, using a HDMI-cable and Lenovo Mini dp to HDMI adapter OB47089.  When I connect, I'm only offered a max resolution of 2048x1152. I get 3840x2160 resolution on this screen, with the same hdmi-cable on my E540 (which I think have the same graphics card). I've also tried two adapters in case the first adapter was faulty. The screen have HDMI, DP and mini DP, and i guess I could buy a DP to Mini DP cable, but wil lthat work or will it be wasted money? And is there a resonable explanation to why the adpater cant deliver 3840x2160 as specified?
