Faulty HDMI port?

Q: Faulty HDMI port?

A recent power outage has caused some of my hardware to function oddly...
My tv's hdmi ports seem to still work for say a ps3, but when hooking up to my gtx 760 I get "No Signal"?
I only have one hdmi port but several other dvi ports. My smaller monitor(plugged into dvi port 1) is functioning normally. It also seems the gpu is still functioning because I booted Dota 2 just fine with 60fps(vsync). Could this outage have fried the hdmi port? Should I be worried, should I return it or just buckle down with 2 dvi connectors? I was gonna test out hdmi to dvi cables to test my theory but am unsure what to do otherwise.

Hi guys this is my first post as im at a loss of what to do .
Recently my old monitor stopped working, it was using a VGA cable, but the cable is not the problem, my PC is. I bought a new monitor which requires HDMI, however the port on my PC will not respond to the cord, meaning I have no monitor :/ or anyway to troubleshoot. The only thing I can think of would be to buy a USB to HDMI adapter? But even then I would need a monitor to install the device surely. I would usually take it to the shop, but with lockdown I am lost and without a PC for the forseeable future, help would be appretiated!

Hi Warro, and welcome to TSG.

I don't think anyone here can give you much help without knowing:

1: Name of the manufacturer and exact model number of your computer and/or the motherboard.

2: Name of the manufacturer and exact model number of any video controller expansion card (the card itself, not the manufacturer and model number of the graphics IC) plugged into the motherboard.

3: The operating system running the PC.

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 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

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.

Hello!

I have a HP pavilion g6 laptop that I bought at the end of August. There are 3 USB ports on this machine and I have been using one of them to plug in my wireless mouse USB plug (the mouse is a logitech M305.) Now, this USB port does not work anymore. It doesn't detect the mouse USB plug nor does it read USB devices.

What can I do? Is it possible to physically replace a USB port? How?

The headphone port on my Thinkpad z60m 2529 rcu produces "uneven" sound. When I plug in my computer speakers, depending on how I wiggle the input jack the sound changes. If I hold it in the right place then the sound is as it should be. Otherwise, the sound is lower and portions of the music I am listening to is inaudible. I am tested this out on a number of songs and, as an example, I can not hear the bass guitar portions of a lot of the songs unless I put the input jack for my speakers in a very specific position and continue to hold it like that.

How do I fix this?
I was googling this and I read some forum posts about others users recommending people like me who have this problem to purchase an external audio device and do not use the internal sound card. They said it will improve the audio too. If I am not able to fix this, should I follow this route?

That is generally the most common solution as it doesn't require a tear down of the laptop. It may also not be possible to repair the broken port on the laptop or may require a new port or audio header/board. What's probably happened is the either the plastic port is broken and the connect the jack makes is poor or the pins that connect the port to the motherboard have broken loose and aren't making good contact. Using a PC Card, XpressCard, or USB sound card is generally the super fast and 100% effective fix.

Hi, I decided to speed up my laptop by replacing almost unused ODD with a new SSD drive so mounted the disk into adaptive frame and plugged into the DVDR slot. Firstly everything looked up fine but after further attempts to clone old drive or install brand new Windows from bootable pendrive this new drive started behave unpredictably, ie. give errors, freeze, timeout partitioning operations or even wasnot visible as connected physical device case by case.
I firstly suspected the drive self so sent it to RMA, but the seller returned it with no hardware fault found. So now the surmise lies on faulty SATA subsystem. Since original HDD connected to SATA port #1 operates alltime without issues the possibly failing part is the SATA port #2 or SATA cable.
I will appreciate a solution to have flawlessly working SSD and possibly also keeping the old plate harddrive to retain storage space for less speed critical data
I.e. any chance to make working the problematic 2nd SATA channel, swap the ports, but then probably the old drive will be the one not stable. In the last resort I can try to change the SATA cable, but don't know which type I can use and if it's replaceable at all. Thanks for any good advices.

A few days ago I upgraded my PCs motherboard, from a MSI Z370 PC Pro, to a Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon (also MSI), at first there was no issues at all, until a few days after, my Ethernet speeds were dropping randomly.

One minute Ill have perfect internet speeds over ethernet (my normal speeds of 200mbps), then the next my download will be almost 0 mbps, while upload speeds are fine. This happens randomly, isnt fixed by a reboot, and Ive found no way to fix it. Ive tried the following troubleshooting:

Tried different Ethernet cables
Tried a different PC, and tested the speeds over WiFi (to see if it was my internet)
Removed and reinstalled the Ethernet drivers (once for each source: MSI site, Intel site and Windows device manager/update)
Assigning manual/static IP configuration within windows
Resetting BIOS
Updated BIOS

I should also mention that after the BIOS update (which did complete successfully) my 8600k was not being detected, I spent a few hours troubleshooting this and in the end what fixed it was either reseating the CPU power cable (wasnt an issue until the BIOS update however) or resetting the CMOS (Im leaning to this) But the core thing here is another issue seen is a CPU not being detected for a short period of time

As of now I cant think of anything else to try with troubleshooting the Ethernet port, and I am leaning towards an RMA. If anyone needs any more info about my specs I can provide them.

Hi,

I'm trying to setup a multifunctional laser unit via parallel port on a PC running XP Pro and is unsuccessful in getting it to print.

I have put the LPT ports into SPP and ECP modes with no luck. (have not tried EPP although I should as its bi-directional) I have also tried different parallel cable, different versions of drivers, tried printing from DOS using "dir > lpt1" and still no luck. The LCD on the unit says "waiting" then goes back to "ready" with no output.

I have connected the unit to my laptop running XP Pro. The LPT is set to ECP. I can print from windows with several versions of the drivers as well as from DOS without problems.

I also have a HP A3 Bubblejet that has a monitoring toolbox. This unit is connected via USB but also has Parallel support. I have removed this printer and toolbox software believing this toolbox was locking down the LPT port and still no luck with printing to the laser unit. I have connected the HP Bubblejet via parallel (with no toolbox software loaded) and also got no print.

Lastly, if i remove the LPT1 port in Device Manager and rescan for hardware, the PC detects the LPT port and the attached device.It installs the driver for the attached device and indicates all is installed and ready to use. but printing fails.

Thus I believe there is something going on with the PC not the printer units. However, I am still unsure if it's software or hardware related.

Hello, everyone.
I am using a Latitude 3540 laptop with switchable graphics (Intel HD Graphics, AMD Radeon HD 8850M). As soon as I got the laptop, I upgraded to 8.1 (probably a mistake!).
All of my drivers are up to date according to Device Manager, and I've updated the chipset and BIOS and everything according to the Dell website. But for as long as I've had this laptop, the VGA port will not work! I'm using a VGA cord that has worked with other laptops before without issue. The laptop will not output to projector, external monitor, or a TV. Pressing the win-P combination brings up the ability to extend and duplicate my screen. When I change those settings, my screen resolution will change, but the external monitor/projector doesn't display anything. When I try to detect displays in my graphics properties, it just doesn't detect anything that's connected.
Is my VGA port faulty? Or does anyone have any suggestions on what else to try at this point? My laptop is still under warranty, so I suppose I could always send it in to be fixed.
Thanks for the help!

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

Last night my new laptop arrived (XPS), still getting used to windows 7 etc... but i thought i would watch something through my t.v.

Plugged HDMI cable in back of laptop straight in to t.v, changed the source and straight away i had a lovely sharpe picture of my deskop instantly.... or so i thought

im getting the middle part of my screen fine - but it is cropped so i cant see the tool bar (its too low) and the desktop icons are only veiwable if i move them closer in screen!

please help!

Ideally i want to have identical screens on both so i can use both at sam time, but currently i can only view either or atm? and the t.v one being crop means i can use it as a computer (No toolbar etc..)

I could figure this out on XP but windows 7 seems beyond me atm!

Thanks guys!

Ok well i basically want to conntect my PC to my TV to stream videos and stuff, and from what i gather it is as easy as plugging a HDMI cable in the HDMI port on my PC and then putting the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on my TV, is this correct?

My main question is however, how do i check if my PC has a HDMI port/is capable of doing this? I have had a look at the back of the motherboard and there is LOADS of slots for cabables and it's pretty hard to tell if there is actually one there, i think there is but i ain't entirely sure, i wanna know if theres anyway to check if there is one there by checking manually on the PC or something? Just to clarify there is definately one there.

And also i think my Monitor may have a HDMi port, but again i am unsure so if my motherboard didn't have a HDMi port could i just plug the cable into my monitor and it would have the same affect.

My graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS if that helps..

I hope this makes sense, i just don't wanna buy a HDMI cable and then find out it's no good, i hope it has one cause i'm not gonna bother using DVI converters and stuff as it's probably not that cost affective and i just wanted to do this quickly and easily...

Thanks!

Hello, Brand new P1 laptop and I cannot get the HDMI port to work when connected to an external monitor (HDMI-to-DisplayPort).  I've scoured the interwebs, from AskJeeves to HotBot, and cannot find an answer that works.  Stuff tried so far: -Making sure all drivers/BIOS were up to date (they are).-Multiple cables.-Making sure that screen extend is on.-Monitor works.-Checked the BIOS settings for any clue of port disabling.-Pressed the reset button on the bottom of the case.-Used four-letter words.-Sprayed incense on Jobu. Now I'm just using one 4K 15.6" laptop screen like some kind of peasant.  Please help!

Can you try it from Linux? When I had problems with my V510 with HDMI Audio, I downloaded Ubuntu and booted it from USB. It worked perfect there so I know it was an issue with Windows 10 and Lenovo compatibility. You can even try it without installing it completely, just use it in test mode. This way you can see if it's a hardware problem or something wrong with BIOS or software compatibility. In my case it was solved by a BIOS update after 9 months.

Hello all, I have a H50-50 and i have 2 monitors both HDMI capable. I have tried hooking both up HDMI and only the one that is hooked up to the video card works. How can i use the computer HDMI port and how can i get it to work? do I have to use VGA? I would rather have both HDMI ports working since it is there, not sure what the purpose of having 2 if I can only use one.... Thanks in advance
