Inspiron 15 7567 - HDMI to DVI-D outputs blank screen

Q: Inspiron 15 7567 - HDMI to DVI-D outputs blank screen

I bought a HDMI (M) to DVI-D (F) adapter for an external monitor. The monitor only supports DVI-D or VGA hence the necessity for an adapter. I attached the cables and had set the "project screen" setting to "extend". Lo and behold, blank screen.
I have tried the adapter with other two desktops I have lying around and I can verify it is working. The laptop detects the monitor. It also noticed the DVI-D connection. In terms of actually outputting anything to the external monitor? No bueno. I really desire a second monitor for productive workloads.

Hi Dell Community. I'm getting big performance drops in games when connecting to my TV (direct connection over HDMI).Taxing scenes that would give me 55FPS when playing on my Laptop Screen are now dropping to 30-35fps and I have no idea what's causing it. As far as I know there shouldn't be such massive drops just by using an external monitor.I've asked in other places and gotten some suggestions but none that has helped me solve the issue:- The games are running at 1080p on both my laptop screen and my TV so It's not a resolution difference causing the issues- I've set the image to only display on the secondary monitor. So it's not mirroring it on the laptop screen.- I've made sure it's the dedicated GTX1050 Ti running the games and not the integrated graphics card when using my TV (by adjusting the global settings in the Nvidia control panel)- All the drivers are up to date
Any suggestions?Thanks

A:Inspiron 7567, HDMI out to TV, low FPS

The Nvidia global settings only applies to the laptop LCD panel. The HDMI out port will ONLY use the onboard Intel HD Graphics 630. So getting 30-35 FPS on that Intel GPU is normal. The Intel driver A03 dated 8/31/17 is the latest one we offered for this Inspiron 15-7567. I did find a newer driver dated 9/11/17 for the onboard Intel HD Graphics 630 on the Inspiron 15-7577, A01. Might be worth testing to see if it will install on your model.

I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

A:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

A:New Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming (7567) HDMI Out questions

Mine works fine on a TV.  It was mentioned in another thread you do not see the screen prior to the lock screen, so if you want to use it as a boot screen it does not seem to have that capability.
What type of monitor or TV are you using and does it have an HDMI input?  Are you using Windows 10 to set up the second screen or just plugging it on for duplication?

I have a new Dell Laptop, the "New Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming", specifically the 7567 variant.  Before I start, just to let you know my technical experience, I work in the IT field, and have extensive knowledge of building computers, how drivers work, etc, just to give you an idea of my experience. 
I have a couple of problems with video output on the HDMI channel.  The problems I'm having are when I use the HDMI port with my TV.  My TV is a Vizio M422i-B1, and using up-to-date cabling.  I don't have any problems using the laptop with it's built-in panel, and this laptop works perfectly when used in that way. I though will be using this laptop primarily attached to an HDMI port to my TV, and I'd like to know if changes could be made somewhere on the Laptop in a BIOS or utility I'm missing, or if I may have come up with some feature updates in future BIOS revisions - if possible.
The first problem is there is no video signal sent out on the HDMI port during boot and in the BIOS screens. When Windows starts, video signal is sent and everything appears to be working normally.  This is a problem if I want to access the BIOS, or boot to Safe Mode, or do something in the preboot environment such as booting from a USB drive. I don't see anything in the BIOS or anywhere else that would allow me to enable sending video through the HDMI port in this boot phase.
This leads me to the other problem I'm having.  After Wi... Read more

Recently bought a model 7567 and paired it with an external monitor via HDMI. All my drivers are up to date. Ever since pairing the both, every few minutes, the laptop and external monitor both freeze for about a minute, then both screens flicker and return to normal operation. 
This only happens when I use HDMI output. If I'm using the laptop alone, it works perfectly. I should note that this only happens when browsing webpages or small tasks, and not when gaming. I have ran full system hardware diagnostics and found no problems.
Any help would be nice, as it is becoming a pain to use. Thanks!

I have a new Inspiron 7567 gaming laptop; it has two graphics cards, the integrated Intel HD 630 and the 'semi-discrete' Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 ti.
Yesterday, I tried plugging it into my HDTV using an HDMI to HDMI cable. I have done this many times with my previous laptop, a Dell Inspiron n7110, and have had 0 problems. With the 7567, however, the TV just flickers for a moment and says "No signal". The computer reacts in a few different ways when the TV is plugged in:
In the Windows 10 "Display Settings", options appear for multiple displays such as "Extend Display", "Duplicate Display", etc., and with Windows + P I can choose these, however, only one screen is shown (which changes from 1 to 1/2 when HDMI is plugged in) and when I click on "Detect" it says that no other display is detected. Additionally, an extra Monitor (Generic PNP Monitor) appears in Device Manager when the display is plugged in.
In the Intel Graphics Settings control panel, there is no change when the HDMI display is plugged in. There are no multiple-display options, and "Detect" does not detect any other displays.
Finally, in the Nvidia control panel, when there is no external display plugged in, the only section in the left-hand tree menu is "3D Settings". One of the items under it is "Set PhysX Configuration", which shows "Laptop Display" connected to "Intel HD Graphics 630" with a line, inside ... Read more

Dear all,
I currently have an Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 which I am trying to connect to an external screen I recently bought (Dell 2415H). I have attempted to connected this though HDMI port. For some reason, the screen remains blank (black). The resolution should be 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz. In order to address the issue and after reading a few forums I have tried a few things:
1. Tried different HDMI cables although the screen came with one. I have also used the cable and laptop on a TV and works fine. However, the TV resolution works with a 1360 x 768 @ 60 hz.
2. I have connected the screen to different laptop (Samsung) through the HDMI and works fine.
3. I have updated drivers after completely uninstalling them (both Intel and Nvidia). The Nvidia Geforce drivers that I have at the moment are version 384.94 - see below.

4. I have played around with Nvidia's Setting panel. So the results are as follows:
1920 x 1080 @30Hz, progressive (custom setup): Display works but lots of blue pixels in black areas
1080p 1920 x 1080 @60Hz (native): no signal – blank screen;
1080i 1920 x 1080 @ 30Hz: lots of flickering;
Other resolutions mixed results.
The intention of course is to have an output of 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz as that’s what both devices (screen and graphics card) are supposed to support.
To sum up the issue therefore seems to be that GTX1050 can't cope with 1920 x 1080 specifically @ 60Hz. Can you please confirm if that is a known issue and how... Read more

Hi all,
I'm really interested in buying a Inspiron 7567 here in the UK but I've a couple of questions I can't seem to get answers to, maybe the community can help?
1.  Does anyone know if or when the option to upgrade to a FHD IPS screen might be available in the UK?  It's currently an option on the US site but I can't seem to get an answer here in the UK.  Going by the reviews I don't think I'd settle for the TN screen if I'm forking out nearly £1000, and the UHD screen is too costly, and the 1050 ti isn't quite powerful enough, to do that resolution justice, particularly going forward.  I'll happily play at 60fps in FHD rather than 30 fps on UHD, but only if I can get an IPS screen.
2.  It seems from this forum that you need to use the Dell modified nVidia drivers, you can't use the ones from nVidia direct as these can lead to BSODs.  Does anyone have an idea how long Dell will continue to support driver updates in the future?  I know I can't expect cutting edge performance 3-4 years in the future (my acceptable working life given the cost), but some games block loading or really complain about out of date drivers and I'd hate to be stuck when Dell gives up updating drivers for the 7567 in say two years and I can't get them from nVidia.  Anyone know how likely this is to happen?
Cheers folks, hope someone can help!

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?

Good afternoon. So I purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7567) for my wife on July 13 and it was delivered on July 21st without any issues. The purpose for the laptop is more work and school since my wife is not a gamer, but I wanted to get her the best possible specs for the long term. All drivers on the laptop are from the Dell site and the laptop shipped with Windows 10 Pro. On the night I received it, my wife decided to watch some Netflix while I slept and the next morning, she sent me the attached screen shots. According to her, the screen just turned that way after having watched about 30 minutes of full screen material. She also stated that it flickered and that Windows was for a short while somewhat unresponsive (she couldn't restart the system). The following day I turned on the laptop without any screen issues. I did research and noticed a lot of driver issues with the Nvidia GeForce 1050 Ti GPU were being posted, but most specified BSOD issues with the Nvidia drivers not the Dell drivers. Nevertheless, I removed the Dell drivers and clean installed them again. Afterward, I did a barrage of tests on the laptop to see if the problem was hardware or software related. These are some of the tests I ran:
- Dell BIST tests
- AIDA64 Extreme Stability and Monitor Diagnostics tests
- Futuremark 3DMark SkyDiving Benchmark and Stress Test
None of the tests could replicate any issues with the screen. No artifacts whatsoever.

Hey, everyone, I bought my Inspiron 15 7567 a few months ago and absolutely love it. I've had no problems with it until yesterday when I "woke" it from sleep: I opened the monitor and was greeted with a heavily distorted screen, seen below.
This has never happened before, and part of me thinks it may have something to do with a system update that I recently downloaded and installed. my guess is there's a bug in the latest Dell update that causes this to happen.
Has anybody here experienced this before, and how were you able to resolve this?

No video cards I know of have 4 HDMI outputs, but you can find plenty of cards that have that many if you combine DVI + Displayport. You could always use DP converters to HDMI got get the appropriate number of connections, but remember that after 2 non DP devices you'll need to start using Active Converters if you plan to keep the signal digital.

I have a problem that is driving me absolutely mental. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I have a Monitor (Benq G2420HD) hooked up to my laptop (Sony Vaio AR71m - Running Windows 7) via HDMI. It worked absolutely perfectly before I went away for the summer. Since coming home and, to my knowledge, having made no major changes to my computer I encountered a problem.

The monitor is recognised on my computer - it shows up in display settings and Nvidia Control Panel fine. Windows also extends the desktop to the other monitor. The monitor shows the green power light but is completely unresponsive and shows only a blank screen as if it's not turned on - I can't change the channel, bring up the menu or do anything until I unplug the HDMI cable and then the monitor works again.

I have tested my computer on another monitor and it works and I have tested my monitor on another computer and that works. At one point I thought I had solved the problem after installing an older graphics driver and and my desktop actually showed on the monitor but two minutes later it disappeared again.

I've tried countless GPU drivers (GeForce 8400 GTm), different HDMI cables and I've even formatted my hardrive and reinstalled windows but to no avail.

I've completely run out of ideas of things to try. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free.

The hard drive that comes included is a 1TB 5400rpm hybrid hard drive. Some other models of this same laptop have an extra m.2 ssd. Do all 7567 models have the capibility to have an m.2 drive? Or is it exclusive to the more expensive model, featuring dual drives with 128GB solid state drive+ 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive?

I was moving our Dell Studio 17 laptop and the screen went blank. I thought it did a power save or something. But I could not get it redisplay anything..no flickers, nothing.

I rebooted, nothing.

I opened up the back and reseated the ram and verified the hard drives were secure. I vacuumed out any dust. No difference.

So I tried using the HDMI with our TV and it displays just fine. I try to toggle the screen (function F8 on my laptop) and it makes no difference. HDMI is always shown.

In the past when we use the HDMI to display netflix movies on our TV, I hookup the HDMI and the laptop automatically switches to the HDMI display and turns off the laptop display. When I unplug the HDMI, it wouldnt turn the laptop screen back on. I would have to reboot with the HDMI disconnected for the display to come back.

Now rebooting doesnt not bring the screen back.

Anything else to try? are there settings somewhere forcing the laptop to not send info to its own screen? BIOS?

This laptop has an ATI card and uses the latest drivers. It does have the Catalyst control center where it detects the displays. It seems the 'unknown' laptop screen and TV (when HDMI is connected, the only way I can see the screen at this time)..but it calls them duplicates and calls both of them #1 display.

Thanks for the help

Hey there,

I have an Inspiron 11 3000 hybrid laptop. Yesterday it was freezing all night while I was watching a movie, and buy today morning the screen wouldnt turn on. I can hear the ventillation and the backup light is on, when I push the start button. I googled a bit, and someone suggested connecting the laptop to a TV via HDMI, and it actually works. So I can see the windows 10 start screen on my TV, and even the touchpad works -- it just fails to show up on the laptop screen. Any suggestions, Id like to avoid the service point.

Thank you in advance!

Dell Insprion 15 7000 windows 10 v1709 Crashes suddenly 2x per day i installed dell support assistant and it gave me this event name CLR20r3 these errors

A:Inspiron 15 7567 keeps crashing at least 2x per day now

The report seems to involve the Zero Configuration Service which is part of the Intel Wi-Fi driver.  Currently I have a Killer wireless card installed on my system so I am not seeing your problem.
You might try uninstalling the device.  Windows 10 seems to have a built-in driver for the 8265 you could try before reinstalling the Dell version.
You always have the option to put a dump file on your OneDrive and give us a link.  It might not help further but someone may be able to get something from it.

Have a 2 month old brand new Inspiron 15 gaming 7567 laptop and while playing a game tonight I was tapping on the case(more precisely next to the touch pad) gently, all of a sudden my laptop shut down and now will not turn back on.
When you press the power. Button it lights up for a split second and turns off.. it doesn't even make the usual noises like it wants to boot. The only time I can get a noise is when I hold "d + power button" and that only last half a second.
I have tried other general suggestion such as disconnecting button and holding down power then reconnecting to no end.
Any one have any ideas?

If you're comfortable in opening the computer, I suggest reseating the battery. Please follow steps below:
1. Remove all peripherals, AC adapter, and battery from system. Press the " Power On " for about 15 seconds to release Static Flea Power.
2. Replace battery, adapter, and then power on system. Hopefully computer starts normally.

I bought a Inspiron 15 Gaming - 7567, comes with:
Intel core  i7-7700HQ
SanDisk X400 M.2 - 256GB SSD + Toshiba - 1TB Hard drive
Geforce GTX 1050 TI
1080p screen.

Yesterday I bought Samsung 960 EVO - 250GB, M.2 NVMe SSD, I replace the SSDs (Toshiba to 960 EVO), and I changed the bios to AHCI, because in RAID the computer did not detect the SSD EVO.
I proceeded to the installation of windows 10 and I was able to install Windows without problems in the SSD EVO.
The problem happens that it does not boot Windows on the SSD EVO.
I installed windows in HD, and tried to clone to SSD EVO.
I installed windows without the HD connected.
Nothing seems to work. Does anyone have the same problem?

Since the actual display is disappointing as the reviews says, are you planning to add the IPS FHD (1920x1080) display configuration on this model?

On an Alienware or perhaps XPS - maybe.  On an Inspiron - no.  Inspiron buyers won't pay the premium.
