Q: Can I use my motherboard HDMI port as well as my graphics card HDMI?

I want to use 2 displays using HDMI, but the only problem is that when I plug in my HDMI to my TV through the motherboard, it does not work. I know some do not support it which is why I am coming here. My mother board and graphics card are in my account so look there for the details on my computer. Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can I use my motherboard HDMI port as well as my graphics card HDMI?

I've seen a number of computers where the addition of an Add-in Video card automatically disabled the onboard adapter. The only thing that worked to restore the onboard adapter was to remove that Add-in card. You may want to consider getting a different Add-in card that has 2 HDMI ports. Or if your motherboard has 2 PCIe X16 slots get a 2nd matching card.

Nvidia quadro k620 graphics card
Killer Fatal1ty z97 mother board with onboard hdmi

Ok, so Im extremely new to the tech world, and I just built my first computer. I've been using my tv as my monitor via my hdmi cable. I plugged in my graphics card to my pcie slot and then my hdmi wouldn't work. I kind of assumed that the video card was overriding the onboard graphics. No problem - i plugged in a spare monitor to install the nvidia drivers, and I assumed I was done. Went to plug in the hdmi cable to the motherboard hdmi slot and it's not working. Am I stuck with using the two ports that are attached to the k620? Or can I use my motherboard hdmi port still? This is going to ruin me if I can't use the hdmi.

Thanks in advance

A:new graphics card - now I can't use motherboard hdmi

You can only use the new video card.

Why are you using a Quadro K620 ?

NVIDIA Quadro K620

You need a dvi to hdmi cable, but that won`t transmit sound, hope that is not an issue. (TV speakers suck)

What is the exact make and model of the PC ?

If you were happy with the PC, then why install the K620 ?

I got an HDTV with an HDMI port today. My motherboard (Asus M3N HD-HDMI) has a onboard port for HDMI. At first, my pc would not run to the TV. I looked through the BIOS and found an option called onboard GPU it was set to auto. I changed it to always enabled. I searched around and found the display control and set it towards the onboard port. But it still would not want to send the display to the TV. So after while I removed the graphic card (Geforece 6800 GT) suspecting that was the problem. I did not want to remove it because I still play pc games. After removing the card the port started to work. I want to know is there a way for the display go to the onboard port while still having the graphic card installed and use it for my games and still route it to the port. Also what would be the best settings for the TV? I installed the drivers for the motherboard but the display isn't all the great. If all else fails I can always use the TV for my xbox 360
Thanks in advance!

A:Onboard HDMI port inconflict of graphics card

The HDMI onboard must also be connected to the onboard Video circuitry as well.
By plugging in the addon (Geforece 6800 GT) Asus Motherboard setup has concluded that you do not require the onboard Video (anything) and turned it off automatically (and you cannot change that setting)

One option would be to have a addon Video Card that also has HDMI on it.
Or purchase a PCI HDMI compatible card.

After I installed my new graphics card physically, I switched my display to a Sony LCD TV and plugged it into the HDMI port on the graphics card. After that, I installed all included device drivers and have since updated my Catalyst drivers. Still, I don't seem to have any sound from the TV, though I can still get sound by hooking up my speakers...

Despite that, I'd really like to get sound out of my TV. Any advice? Here are my specs:

I plugged my laptop into an integra 30.4 receiver via HDMI port (multiple ports) and with the receiver on the right device port and connected to a tv or a projector and I get no audio out of the HDMI port only Video. Video works great!

The laptop is an alienware laptop on Windows 10 (upgraded from windows 7 purchased November of 2011). The HDMI would transfer audio and video in windows 7 intermittently for a year or two. However, I had to turn the tv, receiver, and computer on in a specific order and eventually, approximately 1 hour of doing this each time I wanted audio I'd get the audio over the HDMI cable until I shut down....

I've been on windows 10 now for a while and never have gotten the HDMI audio to work. I kinda gave up but would like to use my laptop now to play movies to my new epson 4k projector and am unable to get audio to work at all. Video is phenomenal.

The HDMI port shows up in the device manager under sound devices. However, constantly shows "Cable not plugged in" whether the cable is or is not plugged in.

It's an older Geforce card - wanna say it's a Geforce 555. Also has an intel graphics adapter as well. I've done all the nvidia updates, windows updates, I've gone so far as removing the sound adapters and rebooting, removing the graphics adapters and letting them reinstall. The HDMI audio port always comes back with "Cable Not plugged in." It's staring me in the face constantly.

I kinda gave up and switched to broadca... Read more

I am so confused. Is my Lenovo 3000 N500 4233 63U HDMI compatible? Why it has the port, why the BIOS recommened/installed is NON-HDMI (version 1.10 BIOS 6GET19WW) and why it doesn't work when connected to any Tv with HDMI capability?  Should i downgrade to 1.09. I m running Windows 10 since July 2015 and ...this is another issue which probably will force mesoon to go back to Windows 7, the last update installed successful for windows 10 was Sep 2015; ever since, all the updates don't install, don't download sometimes, whatever adivse i followed, no windows update can be installed. Thank you so much Vera

I need to know if the HDMI motherboard in a 60" Samsung Plasma TV can be used in a Sony Bravia 52" TV. The motherboard in my Sony died and I have access to one in a Samsung Plasma that's screen cracked.

A:Is a 60" Samsung Plasma HDMI motherboard compatible with a 52" Sony Bravia HDMI motherboard.

No, it would not be, in the past I had to repair a tv for a friend that had his board shorted that was an LCD Sony Bravia 52 Inch and its board was very specific as with all Sony Products. The Boards on the TV's are the hearts and the companies that built them don't allow for parts to be interchanged easily. Your best bet is ebay and finding the part number to find a board, that's how I got the one I used to fix it.

Hey guys, just wanted to check if anyone has experienced this issue. Specs are below:

ASUS z97-A motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 (running on stock)
Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1866
i5 4690k (running on stock)

There is very alarming crackling audio when I use my PC via my video card's HDMI slot. On some bootups it's non existent and on some, it is terrible (I'd say it happens 50% of the time I start my computer). Motherboard sound is fine. I tried hooking my monitor to vga and using on board sound and I have not noticed the cracking happen when I go that route. But I really wanna game in HDMI because I find the quality a lot better.

I have tried flashing my BIOS, uninstalling nvidia audio drivers, install latest motherboard chipset and network drivers, using different HDMI cables, disabling on board sound via BIOS but have had no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
UPDATE:On one of my bad boot ups, I ran the latency checker and I am seeing it spike through the roof. Below is a screenshot:
imgur: the simple image sharer

A:Cracking audio via video card's HDMI port.

When you use the HDMI audio, the audio is generated by the on-board audio chip in the Video card. The regular PC audio is not used. Thus the problem mostly points to the video card and/or the drivers.

The DPC latency is terrible and shows a major problem.

Run the Resplendence Latency Mon program and maybe it will pin point the problem.

I would also reseat the video card, install or reinstall the latest video drivers and look for any other running programs that could be causing the spikes.

I recently bought a Radeon HD 5670 video card and upon installation realized I need a different cable than the one I am currently running from my monitor "emachines LE1799" to my motherboard. I found out it takes DL-DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI cables. I looked up the DL-DVI and I believe that is for running multiple displays correct? I will not be running more than one monitor, so can I buy the HDMI cable? Will that be the best option to connect the card to my monitor? Or will the DL-DVI be superior?

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

I have just purchased an Acer M3100 computer (http://www.acer.com.au/acer/akc/homepc.nsf/Page/RWP5400E0DD295037A2CA25731700203CAB?open&current=17.3) running Vista Home Prem x64.

The computer came with on board graphics with VGA and HDMI outputs. The system came with an Acer 24" LCD monitor with VGA & DVI inputs.

I'm not quite happy with the VGA to VGA graphics on the screen.

To improve the graphics I was thinking of two possible options.

1. Buy a HDMI to DVI cable

2. Buy a graphics card that has DVI output and disable the on board graphics

Does anyone have any suggestions as the best option to improve the graphics?

Cheers, Liam.

I got a brand new graphics card. Nvidia Geforce GT520 2GB with HDMI output. I have a 32-inch LCD TV that I use as a monitor. Before I was plugging in via VGA cable and audio cable. I decided I wanted to plug in the new graphics card with the HDMI cable. My problems are:

1. Bad resolutions. I went threw windows control panel and display settings. Went threw ALL the resolutions and none of them fit right on the 32-inch screen. I also went threw the Nvidia control panel resolutions and again none fit on the screen. I tried the adjust desktop size in the Nvidia control panel but it keeps reverting to a resolution of 800x600 which is way to big. The main resolution problem is the screen is so big it's outside the TV (if that makes sense) or it to small there is a black border around the screen or it fits but the words on the screen are hard to read.

2. Colors are to vibrant. They are so vibrant it looks washed out and I get a headache from just looking at the screen. I'm not to concerned about the color as I can probably turn down the digital vibrance in the Nvidia control panel to fix this. But it's hard to adjust that when the screen resolution is just horrid.

If anyone with a similar setup (32 inch TV as Monitor) can help me fix this screen resolution problem then I would be greatly appreciated.

Also computer is completely updated via windows update, I have the latest Nvidia driver for my graphics card. I also tried created a custom resolution but I don't know wha... Read more

In your nvidia control panel find scaling options. There should be 3 settings: Fit to aspect ratio (black borders), Center (black boarders all the way around the screen like a square). and Stretch to fit screen. You want Stretch to fit screen.

Note: your options might not be called these in scaling options (i use ati) But select stretch to full screen, Full Screen OR fit to screen, are some of the names. HOPE I HELPED a wee bit

I added a HDTV to my computer. Yesterday I did something where when I turned off the TV the display would AUTOMATICALLY switch back to my secondary monitor and if I turned the TV back on it would automatically switch back to the TV. When this happened I had extend display #1 to HDTV selected. I did not have to manually switch over the displays.

This morning the only way I can get them to switch is by doing it manually through the settings.

Does someone know what I may have done to make the monitors automatically switch without having to do it manually?

Its almost like the computer knew through voltage or something that made it "know" the HDTV had been turned off so it went back to secondary monitor on its own. I want screen #2 and HDTV to switch by themselves like that all the time through the power button.

Is it possible to do that or was that just a glitch in my machine?

(EDIT: **IDEALLY** I would like to get all 3 monitors running at the same time so I can work on #1, Take notes ect/have extra work space on #2 and have music videos, studio software, movies, Tweetdeck news tickers or other stationary items on the HDTV but I think in order to have all 3 monitors running you need some kind of special dongle or something. The way it is right now is Monitor 1 is always on and I have to decide if I want to use monitor 2 or the HDTV. The unused one goes black.)

A:Auto switch HD5570 card with VGA/DVI and HDTV on HDMI port

What is "switching" ? What do you mean ?

They should not be "switching" at all, when you turn on all 3 monitors, all 3 should work, when you turn one off the other 2 should stay on, there should be no switching.

All 3 monitors should work at the same time, when you turn 1 off the other 2 should remain on and working fine etc.

I only physically plug my HDTV in when I want to use it, other wise your card will get hotter

Even if the HDTV is off, the card still tries to send out a 3rd signal (totally normal)

Please post a manufacturer`s link to your exact card, so we can further research.

I just got a new monitor with hdmi / vga and dvi all supported on it along with a new New Nvidia Gefore GT 610 graphics card.
I installed the card and originally was going with dvi since it has a higher resolution output then VGA. I later got an hdmi cable and plugged it in to the monitor, then the computer while it was on and simply switched outputs on the monitor to hdmi and it worked fine. I played some skyrim and when i closed, my monitor when black. Nothing happened for about 3 minutes while i tried power on and off, unplug cables, changing port back to dvi. Nothing worked. So I shut down my computer and booted back up. Still nothing.

Now, HDMI still does not get picked up by my monitor and it just says >No Signal< for either DVI or the VGA!
The HDMI and DVI are both plugged into the dedicated gfx card, while the vga is plugged into the motherboard. I have them all plugged in at once (not sure if this is bad) and am switching between them. Only DVI works.

Please, help me get my HDMI working? (I alrdy tried the cable on my tv - cable box and it worked fine,. its not the cable)

Your graphics card should have no impact on the headset, you should be plugging your headset into the back of the pc where the usb ports usually are, there should be a set of coloured jacks, if your headset has 2 seperate leads, 1 for headphones and 1 for the mic. Plug the head phone one into the green one and the mic one into the pink one

For my PC...I run a 2 monitor setup...just replaced and old DVI Viewsonic that was fading out with a new Asus with HDMI port. My second monitor is a Samsung connected via it's HDMI port to my NVIDIA GeForce GT630 card...the new monitor (ASUS) is connected via a dvi cable.

Question is can I add another in-line splitter like I did with the Dish TV signals to the NVIDIA card to connect both new HDMI moniors to the NVIDIA GeForce GT630 without any issues or chance of damage to the GT630 ?

Splitter works flawlessly with the Dish HDMI signal to the two TVs...so any issues adding an HDMI splitter to run both HDMI monitors off the one HDMI port on the on the PCs NVIDIA GeForce GT630 ??

Hi everyone. I am upgrading the graphics card in my PC to one that will support Windows 7, and I was going to choose the Nvidia GeForce 8400GS, a picture of which can be found here - http://www.google.com/products/cata...log_result&ct=image&resnum=7&ved=0CCcQ8gIwBg#.

I am connecting this to my HP w19 TFT and wanted to confirm the correct cable I would need to use for HD - both the card and the monitor have the white connector, can anyone confirm the type of cable I would need?

Thanks for reading

A:Can't get Mini HDMI input to work from graphics card

If you want to check if your video card is being bottlenecked, just open up resource manager and play any game you like.

Check how much strain is being put on the cpu and compare it to the gpu usage.

GPU-Z is my personal favorite gpu monitoring program. Get it from TechPowerUp.

If you have a core 2 duo running under 3.5 ghz it'll most likely be a bottleneck in modern games.

However, with a quad core with a clock rate of at least 2.5 or so then you should be fine.

Also, it really depends on the game.

Older games less cores doesn't really matter as much as the gpu. Newer games can become really demanding on both the cpu and gpu.

I'm supposed to connect an S/PDIF cable between my soundcard and my graphics card to enable the sound to work on my HDMI cable (between comp and TV).

However, there is no such jack on my soundcard, which is an outdated Soundblaster Audigy Platinum.

For anyone who wants to help, the manual is here.

Can someone help me do something about this? I wish to keep this soundcard.... or at the last resort, buy a new soundcard which will solve this problem, but its gotta be cheap, and has something to connect to the front like my current soundcard, which takes .25" headphone jacks....

A:S/PDIF cable into Graphics card to enable sound in HDMI

I'm not an expert in this area but does your graphics card have an HDMI output connector at the back? If so, you don't need your sound card. HDMI carries both HD video and HD sound. If your TV has an HDMI input, you just connect the HDMI cable from the graphics card.

Hello all! I searched and found similar (but not close enough) problems.

Specs up front:
W7 Home Premium x64
Asus M2A-VM motherboard
AMD Athlon x64 5000+
Gigabyte GV-N220OC-1GI GeForce GT 220
On-board audio (aside from the HDMI out on the GT220)

I have an LCD monitor I use 98% of the time on the DVI plug and an HP projector for watching videos hooked up to the VGA plug. I bought this GT220 specifically for the HDMI audio out to my receiver.

Except the HDMI audio doesn't work, whether or not I disable the on-board audio in BIOS. I downloaded the latest NVIDIA drivers (July '11) and the computer recognizes the receiver.
If I start playback, you get the little bars dancing next to the receiver in audio properties (See image below) but no sound.
Unlike older cards with HDMI plugs, this one has no SPDIF inputs; should get all the signal through the PCIe bus... I guess...
It seems Windows is smart enough to disable the on-board when I turn the receiver on, and re-enable it when I turn the receiver off, but not to actually send audio to the receiver.

I know the receiver & cable are good because if I unplug the cable from the computer and plug it into my WDTV I get HDMI audio... but when the cable is plugged up to the computer, "HDMI" doesn't appear in the receiver display and there is no sound.

Thoughts??? Thanks in advance.

A:No HDMI audio from new Gigabyte (NVIDIA) GT220 graphics card


Aside from setting Nvidia HD audio to default, you will need to have the latest Nvidia audio driver installed. You can uninstall your current Nvidia drivers (all of them), and when you install this driver, select custom, and make sure audio driver is selected to install.

Here it is: NVIDIA DRIVERS 285.62 WHQL

I'm not sure if you have an Nvidia driver installed minus the audio driver, but if you do: This may or may not work instead of removing all the Nvidia drivers: select install driver - Custom. This may allow you to only install the audio driver (so you don't need to remove all other drivers).

I have no audio signal coming through from the graphics card using a DP to HDMI cable.
I have tried the pc on different cables and monitors but to no success.
I have the latest up to date drivers installed and I have searched for days now looking for a solution.
I believe there is no spdif option on the motherboard to connect a cable to the card directly.
Does anyone have an idea what I need to do to resolve this issue?
I was running Win 7 but have upgraded to 10.

A:Sound not working, Only have HDMI Sound Output, But no HDMI port in PC

the HDMI sound is most likely off your GPU but that series seems to not have a HDMI port so that is odd. If you can make sure your onboard audio is on in your BIOS and also run the tool on this page so that you can update all your system info for us. System Info - See Your System Specs

Hi, first time poster.  My workplace basically gave away some of these ThinkCentre desktops.  I figured I would take one home for my youngest son as he is only into playing browser based computer games.  Now after doing some reasearch, it appears my options are limited with outputting to a TV (HDMI) with this particular model.  It appears there is a DVI card lenovo makes that would output the video but there is no good way to get the audio and video to one input of a TV. Do they make a DVI to HDMI adapter with an audio passthrough? Also I am not aware that anyone has successfully got a video card to work in this model (Pci-e x1 or PCI), if anyone has heard otherwise please kindly send me the info.  At most, I would like play 1080p video if I could find a graphic card that worked (E6300 processor) Thanks in advance!

I am considering buying an HDMI splitter to get around a problem I now have when streaming music only from the Internet. Currently I have about a 15 ft. cable running from the HDMI output on my computer to my Samsung TV. With this setup everything works fine. I can watch Youtube videos or Netflix movies. The thing that I don't like is that if I want to just stream music for several hours, I have to leave the TV on since the audio connection from the TV to my receiver is not a pass thru. It is only live when the TV is on. I am wondering if I can use an HDMI splitter to solve this problem. What I plan to do is to connect the computer HDMI output to the input on the splitter. Then use one of the splitter's outputs to go to the Samsung TV and the other one to go to my receiver via an HDMI-to-2 Channel Stereo Y-adapter. Just wondering if the connection to the non-HDMI device via the Y-adapter will upset the functioning of the splitter. What about the the EDID handshaking and HDCP signal that HDMI sources and displays need in order to function?

I contacted Lenovo support today and got NO help in answering my question on this T470 Thinkpad. Is the T470 able to support two external monitors at the same time (one) using the HDMI port, (one) using the USB-c port (connected VIA an HDMI adapter lets say) to two 32" LGMA68HY-P 60HZ ISP LED's ( max res 1920 x 1080) that ARENOT 4K displays!!  Man it was like pulling teeth, upside down, in the dark, getting astraight answer from tech support on the issue. It looks like my Pro Dock will be useless in this application. As soon as I plugged in a VGA monitor the HDMI port died. HELP!!

I have had my desktop Dell, with Windows 8.1, well over 10 years, and now it has been hanging up after only a few minutes of booting up -- sometimes giving me a BSoD . I've spent many hours with different kinds of 'fixes' (which the computer couldn't eventually fix), 'refreshing' of the system', etc. I've given up on it . There are probably too many system errors to try and fix with outside-the-system apps, so I'm not going to even bother with it anymore .
