AMD Radeon R7 HDMI port issue.

Q: AMD Radeon R7 HDMI port issue.


The PC I have with this graphics card has become unusable due to the image onscreen often failing to appear, and when it does appear it doesn't last very long and disappears again. The TV repeatedly tries to put the image onscreen but fails and I have to switch it off. I can use the VGA port on the card without issues.

This problem has been happening for a few weeks. It would happen a few times every few hours but for most of the time the image was stable so I tolerated it. I was running the PC at 4K resolution and thought perhaps the HDMI cable can't cope with that but I don't believe this is the problem as I reduced the resolution to 1920 x 1080 and still have the same problem.

I only have one good HDMI cable and have needed to remove it regularly from the PC's graphics card to use other devices like my PlayStation 3 & 4. Also, sometimes the HDMI cable has been roughly inserted into the PC's graphics card port. I'm thinking the port has been damaged by this which is why I get the intermittent image.

I did some tests and the TV seems to be fine. Is there anything I can do? Or is a new graphics card needed?

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 am assuming that for some reason the HDMI port on this particular model is input only? If that is not the case, then I have a bad port. If it is input only then the question is how do I plug in another monitor. The other question is why in the world would it be an input port as opposed to an output port???

I recently bought a 720p Sony Bravia TV. My laptop is a ASUS M50Sseries with HD capabilities. I wanted to watch a movie from my laptop on my TV So I plugged the HDMI cord in from the laptop to the TV and it adjusted the resolution and the brightness of my laptop. (On a separate note, I couldn't get the sound to work on the TV either) So, once I got done I un plugged my laptop and it adjusted my resolution but my brightness didn't change back. I have tried to adjust both software brightness and hardware brightness. The software actually does change but not enough to matter and the hardware adjustment does nothing, up or down. HELP PLEASE!

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.

Hi, I've a strange problem with the sound output via HDMI. If my T460 is connected to a dockingstation and my monitor is connected to the station via HDMI cable I've sound output from the speakers. So everything works fine and I can also the monitor as device for sound outpu at the sound options. Then I change only one thing at my setup. I directly connect the monitor with the same HDMI cable directly to the HDMI port of my notebook. The video signal is still transmitted perfectly but the sound is gone. Also the device for sound is gone from the sound options. I've only graphics from the intel on board chip and all drivers are uptodate. I also reinstalled them several times. What can I do to solve this problem? Always use the dockingstation is no option, because I also want to connect the notebook to a TV or so and I can't carry a dockingstation with me all the time. Thanks for help!

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

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.

I've recently bought a HIS iCooler V Radeon 5830 from new for $170 on sale and I was wondering about it's HDMI port. I'm going to buy a LG TV/Monitor next to use with my new card (also from newegg), but I've never used HDMI before.

So how does it work? I've noticed there are different types of cables (type a, b, c and d) and I can't find any website detailing which the Radeon 5830 uses, so I was wondering if someone knew and could tell me. Do all recent LCD monitors w/ speakers use the same kind? Will I have to buy a special cable if they don't?

I see that it can transfer audio along the cable too, how will I enable that feature? Will I even need to or is it automatic?

My system specs are:
Athlon II x4 @3ghz, 1.23v
Biostar A785g3
4 gb G. Skill Ripjaw Series @7-7-7-24
WD 640gb HDD
Windows 7 32-bit

A:How HDMI and Radeon 5830 will work?

The HDMI cable carries audio as well as video signal. This explains the different cable types you were asking about.

Just plug it in to your TV and your good to go.

At some point last week I removed the HDMI cable from my video card to use with another device temporarily. Later, after plugging it back in I could not get anything to show up. I later hooked up an extra monitor I had laying around through one of the DVI ports and performed a system restore because the system apparently failed to boot. I have been unable to get the HDMI out to work properly.

When the HDTV is connected with the HDMI cable, both the TV and monitor hooked up via the DVI port behave as if there is no signal (e.g. displaying "no signal"). The DVI monitor does not go blank until what I assume is the Windows login screen shows up. At first all sound would stop too because I had set the HDMI out as the default sound device as well, but chaning to a different default sound device and plugging in the HDMI monitor no longer stops audio. I booted up in safe mode and the monitor plugged in via DVI port does not lose signal, but the HDMI monitor still shows nothing. I wasn't sure what do to from there.

So far I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for my graphics card, buying a new HDMI cable, and toying around with the card's settings in the Catalyst Command Center (although I barely did anything there).

I am hoping to find some guidance on how to view the contents of my laptop on my television. It seems straightforward, but I can not seem to get it to work. I have a Panasonic TH50PX80U (720p) plasma television and HP Pavilion dv 7-1135nr laptop with an ATI Radeon hd 3200 graphics card and the Catalyst Control Center 8.4 software and drivers. I am running on Vista Home Premium 64 bit edition. My TV does not have a PC input, so I am trying to connect via the HDMI port. I have tried to start the laptop with the HDMI cable plugged in and the TV on the HDMI component. I have tried hot plugging the HDMI cable. I have tried the Fn+F4. I have tried extending my monitor in the display settings. I have tried looking up my HDMI port in the BIOS (I did not find it). I am curious as to whether this is even possible with my TV. I am at a loss; if anyone has any information that would help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:ATI Radeon hd 3200 HDMI problems

I know you state you cannot find HDMI in the bios; however, my Asus desktop board (integrated HD3200) shows the hdmi as DisplayPort Config (Enable/Disable) Disable is default. It also states in the book that surroundview has to be enabled under the aperature setting. I have never tested these as I installed add-on card (nvidia 8800) for my build.

Not sure this helps but at least a little more info.

Basically I use my monitor (DVI) as my primary display and my HDTV as secondary. It was working fine, until one day it starts messing up.

The regular monitor works fine until I plug in my HDMI. When I do that, it blacks out my monitor leaving the cursor frozen on the screen. The TV has no signal.

When I boot I can see it on both screens fine.

I understand this might be a resolution problem because it worked fine when I formatted my computer until i changed the preset to 720p (This worked fine before).

I have tried to:

-uninstall drivers and reinstall drivers
-use the previous drivers
-change hdmi cables

I do not want to format or send back in my card to XFX if I don't need too. Thanks

It's funny that it would stop working the day I had plans with friends to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent all night. Oh, well, though.

So, here's the problem: I installed the card, and initially had no sound. After browsing the forums here, I came across the a very useful thread here. I followed all the steps that were suggested here - I upgraded my ATI Catalyst, made sure the HDMI sound driver was installed, and even tried the Realtek driver suggested on page 2. That one finally worked! This morning when I turned my computer on, everything was fine and dandy until I installed a couple updates from Windows Update, and then upon reboot, there was no sound.

None of the updates had anything to do with audio drivers. They were the malicious software removal tool, an ethernet update from athros, and an update for windows x64 systems. After having no sound, I retried all the steps, but this time to no avail.

System Specs
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
ASUS M4A78T-E motherboard
Phenom II x4 955 Black Processor
Radeon HD 5750 GPU
4GB G. Skill RAM
320 GB Western Digital HDD

***EDIT: Apparently, the Update for Windows x64 (KB976422) disabled my sound driver***

A:Radeon HD 5750 no HDMI sound

Some of the Windows updates corrupt various things. I assume reinstalling the sound driver fixed your problems.

I ran into a problem with Sonar (my recording studio software) that all of a sudden I was getting an error message to reinstall Sonar. I reinstalled and that did not fix it. On a whim I tried starting it as Administrator and it started OK, no errors. As it turned out one of the Windows updates did something to the C:\Program Data folder and just accessing the folder (it required authorization) fixed the Sonar program problem.

Hi. I have a HP Pavilion dv4 with AMD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 graphic controller. When I installed Win 10, I was able to use the HDMI port to watch movies in my TV. Some time ago, the HDMI output didn't work anymore. I guess some Win 10 update broke the driver or something similar. I updated Win 10, I updated the controller (it says I have last version) and I checked Windows and AMD web pages without finding any useful help. Any further idea?

As mentioned in the title I have both pieces of hardware.  I also just purchased a third Dell U2414H LCD monitor.  I am trying to connect all 3 via display port.  However it seems that all I can do is 2 monitors?  When I try to daisychain them I got 2 monitors mirroring each other and one through HDMI off the laptop.

Is this a physical limitation of the replicator?  Is there a firmware update somewhere?

A:Dell Latitude E6520 & E-Port Plus 2 - Display port issue

The E6520 comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000.  The specs for that GPU are buried in the specs for the CPU itself, but if you go to ark.intel.com and look up your CPU, then scroll down to the graphics section and verify that it shows Intel HD Graphics 3000, you'll find that that GPU only supports 2 independent displays, which is why you see mirroring.  More recent Intel GPUs do indeed support 3 displays, but no Intel GPUs to my knowledge yet support 4.
If your E6520 has the NVIDIA discrete GPU, I can't find any information on NVIDIA's site about maximum number of supported displays, but based on your experience I would assume it's 2 unless indicated otherwise.

Hello guys, First post....

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!

A:Using HDMI port to T.V

I'm only guessing but is there an option on your graphics card for an external monitor ?
If so it may identify the hdmi connected tv and tranmit to that as well as your PC.
You may need to adjust the screen resolution.
Is the TV calibrated to accept PC signals ?

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...

I just got a new work computer here (Dell Optiplex 790) and this issue is driving me nuts because my productivity is way down without three monitors, and even further because I'm spending all my time trying to get three monitors to work =D

I have two ATI Radeon HD 6350 video cards with HDMI ports. I'm using two splitters. One splitter for the main card has two Acer monitors hooked up (these work), and the other splitter has a single Acer monitor hooked up and does not work.

I know it works, because I can alternate between monitors but only two at a time.

Now - I've been doing research for about six hours and I just can't figure it out. I've been reading a lot about something called a "display port" but I can confirm that there are no display ports on either video card.

I've included a pic just for fun I guess:

A:Two Radeon HD 6350 (HDMI) not supporting three monitors

Skibbles, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Is it two cards, or is it a single card with a low profile bracket like the one shown here?

If it is a single card, then you can only run two monitors off of it unless you use a splitter. A splitter also defeats the purpose of multi monitor unless you are looking to run the same thing on both (clone).

I have just done a fresh install of Win 7 Pro on my HP. I am giving the machine to my son so did a complete wipe and installed from scratch. I've got a Radeon 5450 video card and downloaded the latest drivers.The AMD HD audio shows up in my device manager as properly installed. But when I try to configure it I get the 'this device is being used by another application'. Task Manager shows NO other apps running and I ran Msconfig to stop the two programs loading at start that came installed with Catalyst. No joy.

I would note that it all worked fine on my old installation that i wiped.

Up until the other day, I've been using my MSI Wind u230 netbook / Radeon HD 3200 to output to my monitor (Acer S243HL - only has 1x DVI and 2x HDMI inputs) and then occasionally swap to a Westinghouse 32" TV.

The other day: I was using my monitor then swapped to the tv, and then returned to my room to connect to the monitor and it just won't work. (To note, I've been using Win key + P to set projector only and to disconnect projector before unplugging the HDMI cable.)

The netbook screen will turn itself off (as if it detects the HDMI-out) but the screen or TV will just show "No signal."

I tried a shorter HDMI cable, tried the other input on the monitor, still nothing. Strangely enough, checking the displays in Catalyst or the Screen Resolution properties, it can detect both the TV and the monitor. There's just no signal coming out.

Even stranger: trying to connect another laptop to the monitor (which used to work) displays "No signal" too.

Now I'm confused. Could it be a software issue? Could I have broken an HDMI port somewhere that somehow broke the other two HDMI cables in turn? Help?

After selecting my options which include reducing the display to 1024x768 there is still no picture at all. Panasonic TV has been detected by the card/software. The Catalyst Control Centre is version 7. The TV is on HDMI channel 1. The cable is plugged in the HDMI slot 1 and DVI on my graphics card. Anything else I've missed?

Alright. I've found threads amongst threads about this but none of their solutions have worked for me. The surround sound has worked once in the past but ever since I reinstalled the OS a good while ago I haven't had surround sound out of the HDMI port since. It displays video just fine but when I go into the sound settings it just gives me the option for stereo.

What're some other common things to try to get this to work?

I've disabled all the integrated sound and integrated HDMI stuff in BIOS already as well so everything is solely relying on the ATI 4550 PCIe card.

A:ATI Radeon 4550 HDMI - Vista x32 - No Surround

I had an HD4550 video card. You don't have to disable the regular PC's audio. First, install the lastest drivers for the card from ATI (including the Catalyst Control Center) as it has the sound drivers for the built in (on the Video board) audio. Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally Sound. In the Playback section, select the ATI HDMI as the default playback device.
