I have an HP desktop with an ASUS VS197 montior connected with VGA cable. I have an NVIDI GeForce GTX 745 graphics card.

I have a BENQ projector connected with HDMI cable.

All has been running perfectly for 3 months.

The setting has been set on "duplicate screen".

Yesterday, rather than turn off the projector's power as normal I simply clicked windows-P and selected "PC screen only"

My monitor immediately went black and said "VGA no signal".

Since then I can use the computer as normal when the HDMI cable is not connected but as soon as I connect the HDMI cable I get a black screen on my monitor. The screen shows on the projector as expected but the monitor screen is black.

My monitor only works when the HDMI cable to the projector is unplugged from the back of the desktop.

I have no idea how to get both screen working again,

Any help much appreciated.

I just received my X1C7 laptop, I wanted to use it for monitoring purpose. I want to have at least 4 monitors connected (including the laptop monitor), for that, I have bought a Lenovo Powered USB-C Travel Hub which has HDMI/VGA/USB2/USB3/RJ45. This gives me two HDMI. This is what I have connected: to the HDMI of the laptop a Dell P2217H screen.to USB-C the Asus MB16AC screento USB-C  the Lenovo Powered USB-C Travel Hub HDMII can get those 3 monitors working together: Laptop monitorUSB-C Asus MB16AC screenUSB-C HDMI OR USB-C Lenovo Powered USB-C Travel Hub HDMII am not able to use both HDMI and the USB-C together but if I unplug the USB-C screen, I am now able to use two HDMI signal together.  I am on Linux dka 4.19.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.67-2+deb10u1 (2019-09-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux How can I get two HDMI + USB-C monitors working at the same time? My bet is that this laptop does not support 2 HDMI monitor + 1 USB-C Monitor. I haven't tried on windows but is that even working on Windows?I have another USB3 screen Asus MB168B+. It uses DisplayLink driver, it does not have official support for Debian but theoretically, could it work as an extra screen considering I can't use (yet) two HDMI + 1 USB-C screen together.

Desktop computer or laptop?

Start with both powered off, connect the cable, power on the TV and then power on the computer.

If it's a laptop, you may need to change the output. This is usually done with the FN keys ( FN + F6 I believe) which will cycle through the video outputs (ie: laptop screen, video output, both)

Hi Zack1, Try this to see if it helps.  Download the Chipset driver and Graphics driver on the links below and save the installers to your Desktop. Chipset Graphics Driver Next, in Device Manager, open Display Adapters, right click on the Intel graphics chip and select Properties.  Click the Driver tab and then select uninstall.  When done, do the same for the for the Intel High Definition Audio Codec found under Sound Video and Game Controllers. Now return to the Desktop and install the Chipset driver and then the Graphics driver.  When complete, reboot the PC and see if this has helped.  Check in Device Manager that both the Intel Graphics and the Intel Hi Definition Audio codec have reinstalled successfully and whether you now see the HDMI Audio option under playback devices ( found in Control Panel, Sound ) as shown as the top option on the screenshot below ( ignore the fact that it's ATI, i just mean the TV icon option ). http://s175.photobucket.com/albums/w146/rproffitt2000/?action=view&current=7Speakers.png&newest=1 If it shows up correctly, try the HDMI connection and see if it now functions properly. Best wishes, DP-K

I have an Acer H233H monitor that is capable of using either a DVI or HDMI cable, new computer has both outputs.. I am using the HDMI cable and when I reboot my computer i lose my video signal to my monitor. If I turn my monitor off and on the signal returns. My monitor is set to HDMI input, so I don't know if this is a Win 7 thing or just a configuration that I am missing.
I used the DVI cable and everything worked fine, monitor came on on reboot as it should. I can't use the DVI cable I have because it is too short, which is why I have switched to a HDMI cable.
I have no problem buying a longer DVI cable if this is a HDMI quirk that cannot be fixed.
Any ideas or suggestions?

I just bought a new computer with a geforce 570 GTX with a mini hdmi output. This i wanted to connect to my samsung TV. First off, my PC only recognises a second monitor when my TV is connected at boot.

When i try to select HDMI source on the TV it's greyed out and i can't select it, because the TV doesnt detect a signal. I found a workaround for this, as i connect my laptop to my tv through HDMI (which works flawlessly), select source --> HDMI, then unplug my laptop, and plugin my new computer to the same input - meanwhile not touching the channels on the TV.

Now i get a picture on the TV from my new computer, it's crystal clear and actually works - but there is an error message across the TV screen: check signal cable - which never goes away. In addition the source HDMI is greyed out again, so if i navigate away from the source, i can't select it again. It seems like my TV doesnt detect that there actually are a signal, even though it's displaying it.

For troubleshooting i tried this: Tried 3 different cables of different lengths. My laptop to TV works flawlessly through HDMI - so it's not the port on the TV thats faulty. I tried connecting my new computer to my friends TV (a prosonic), and it works.

So i think it has to do with the combination of my new computer and my TV - as they apparantly works separately.

I also tried updating the firmware on my TV to the latest version. I tried updating GTX drivers (even tried a few older versions as well).

A:Nvidia GTX HDMI to Samsung TV, check signal cable

Welcome to Seven Forums letifere. Yours is a common issue, which you may have discovered in your search. I'm a TV tech, and I have run into this many times. It is not really a TV "problem", as the TV is working as designed. As you know the input will not show in the input list if there is no signal. Your TV also needs to do a "handshake" with the PC (any HDMI device).

It's possible if you boot the laptop with the TV already on, you may find the HDMI input becomes available (much as when you trick it).

1st off, are you plugging the HDMI from the PC into HDMI1 (DVI)? This is the input for connecting a PC.

I hate to say that many give up on HDMI from their PC and resort to DVI to HDMI adapters (there is a PC/DVI Audio in mini jack next to the HDMI1 (DVI) input).

I'd suggest speaking to Samsung customer support, as they have no doubt dealt with this many times, and might know a "trick"

Okay, so over the holidays I received a brand new Hisense television and I was watching movies and tv shows on my laptop on the big screen through an HDMI cable for a few weeks. Before that I was doing the same thing with the big screen in our living room for months. I got up one day and wanted to plug it in but I kept getting a message saying no signal. I had had it plugged in the night before and it worked just fine. Yes, I checked to make sure it was on the right setting, HDMI 1. I also tried plugging it in the other HDMI slots on the tv and it didn't work in those either. It is doing the same thing to our tv in the living room and it just doesn't make any sense. The only thing I can think of is that my computer has some kind of driver that just needs to be updated or something but I have no idea which one. HELP PLEASE!

I have an HP Desktop Envy All in One. I used an HDMI cable to connect my PC and my Samsung UHD TV so I could use my TV as a 2nd Monitor. I have verified the cable is fine along with the HDMI ports on the TV. When I use the "Source" button on the remote and select HDMI port 2, it tells me there is NO signal or it's not strong enough. When I try to adjust the "Display Settings "on my computer, it appears my PC won't even detect the TV. So, whatever the issue it, it's my computer that is the problem and I am sure it's a simple setting. I am lost and very, very frustrated.

Can I plug in the power cable to a sata drive (already connected to sata port on mobo), while the computer is on.

With that drive connected Windows will not boot (I never have had a problem with the drive before, even when installing windows). If I remember right, a few years ago, I moved the pagefile to that drive, and it also had a boot.ini file on it (for some reason) I wonder if that is the problem (never until now), because when that drive is installed windows hangs at starting windows.

A:Plug in a sata power cable

If the SATA controller is set to AHCI mode, and the SATA port the drive is on is set to allow "hot-swap", then yes you could. If not, then no you can't.

You should post a screenshot of your Disk Management window with the problem drive connected. Expand the window so everything can be read.

Could be hardware damage. Vacuums create static electricity. Static destroys electronics.

I have recently hooked up two Samsung Syncmaster 2243s to my HP Compaq laptop at work (waiting on an email for the specific model for the Compaq and Nvidia Quadro video card). Unfortunately, the second monitor says "Check Signal Cable" and will not display anything. Here's how I have it set up:

The first monitor is hooked up to the laptop on the VGA port and works fine. I have used extended display with my laptop screen and Syncmaster with no trouble. I hooked up the second monitor to the HDMI port in my laptop with a DVI-HDMI cable. At no point (eg. when restarting) does the monitor show anything but "Check Signal Cable".

I have updated my drivers (windows and Nvidia) and tried removing my display adapter and restarting, forcing the computer to reinstall the drivers. I have rebooted with the second monitor attached and unatatched with no luck.

The key point is that the computer recognizes the second monitor (with the Nvidia control panel I can turn off the laptop screen and set both monitors as my extended display - second monitor still says no signal although the first monitor, which works, behaves as if it were part of an extended monitor). Further, the second monitor works normally, as it was used on a previous laptop via VGA. What could cause the "no signal cable"? I did buy a second DVI-HDMI cable with the same result. Any help would be most appreciated.

A:Second monitor HDMI no signal

typically, dual monitors is not done with VGA, or if so, is implemented using a 'Y' cable.

A video card built to support dual video out is usually DVI with Y or two DVI ports on the card.

hi all - ive got a problem with my new viewsonic vx2753mh-led monitor. its got 2x hdmi inputs and one vga.

the vga works straight off the bat, but whenever I try and plug the hdmi in it just says no input signal detected and goes black

I noticed in device manager that this was installed as 'generic non-pnp monitor' so after jumping through some hoops i managed to install the driver as 'viewsonic vx2753 SERIES'
Anyway this doesnt seem to have made a difference. still no input through the hdmi.

I have tested to cord on my samsung tv and it worked fine so it can't be a problem with the cord or the graphics card....

just some general info that might be of use:
windows 7 x64

the graphics is integrated on the intel i5 chip
my display adapters in device manager says Intel(R) HD Graphics Family.
it has a dvi out, hdmi out, and vga out.

A:Viewsonic LCD monitor not recognizing HDMI input signal.

I have a Viewsonic which I'm also trying to run a media PC to connected via an HDMI cable, and I have noticed the exact same thing.

It was working fine for awhile, but recently I have been receiving an error on screen saying the "HDMI to DVI cable as experienced an error" or something to that effect. Note: I am using strictly an HDMI cable, not an HDMI to DVI as the message states (can't explain why I'm getting that message). I did the same thing you did, tested the machine using the same cable on another tv, and it worked fine on the other tv. What's strange is I can connect the cable box to the tv using the identical HDMI cable and it worked fine. Tried again using the same cable from the PC to the tv, and either 1) blank screen, or 2) shrunken screen with the aforementioned error which will go blank once I open Media Center.

Sorry, I don't have an answer, but it seems to me Viewsonic hasn't made a good product in terms of connecting media PC's, for some reason. Of course, my tv is out of warranty at this point. If you find an answer, keep me posted, I'll do the same.

Hi All,

I just set-up my new Asus computer with an Asus monitor. It seemed like a straight-forward task. I hooked up both the VGA and HDMI cables to the nVIDIA graphics card slot in the back of the tower.

I keeping getting this message "VGA No Signal". I tested the VGA cable by using it on my old computer. It works fine. I used my old cable on the new monitor and same message.

If I remove the HDMI cable from the graphic card slot the monitor works! I figured once I had Windows 7 set-up it would take the HDMI cable but no such luck.

Is there something wrong with this new monitor, the graphic card slot or I just missed something.

Also, I find the system is very slow to start-up even though the computer is much more powerful than my six year old computer.

Thanks, ms

Hi guys,

I've been rearranging my workspace, and tried to connect my monitor (viewsonic 19in flat screen) with an extension svga cable. The machine powers on and I get a display, but the optimal viewing resolution (the monitor has a little popup message that says 1440x900) is not available as an option when I go into display settings.
When I look in device manager, the monitor is listed as a generic plug/play device. Do I need to manually install a driver from teh manufacturer? Previously, when just plugging the monitor directly to the machine with no cable the display looked fine, but now it doesn't look as good.

You'd be better of with a long high quality cable then using an extension.

Yes, install the drivers from the manufactures website. These will help your GPU set the correct resolution.

Just got a 3k gaming pc from scorptec with windows 8.
Booted up when connected via hdmi perfectly, could see desktop perfectly.
Installed my norton, xbox pc drivers and what not perfectly.
Issues started when i downloaded steam.
Downloaded, went to the extracting screen and appeared to stop extracting/be stuck on some sort of loop that wouldn't allow me to proceed. Uninstalled and reinstalled steam several times to fix and still got stuck on the loop.
Read an online thread that suggested i boot pc in safe mode whilst giving firewall permission to steam.
Restarted the pc in what i thought would be safe mode.
My lg monitor now states that i need to "check signal cable" and even though pc sounds like its booting and running from the box still no image or windows desktop screen.
Tried out 1 or 2 different hdmi cables and still no connection. Also tried the d sub cable and screen just went black and showed nothing whilst pc whirred round.
Even tried plugging into tv via hdmi and detects nothing.
Tried same monitor via hdmi cord on anothet desktop and it shows pc running perfectly.
I am about to have a fricking meltdown since i spent so much on this pc, does anyone know what to do.
I don't think ive unseated anything as i haven't moved the box enough likely to unseat anything in the first place!

I purchased a new Samsung B2030 monitor today. I have a two year old or so HP Nc6230 laptop. I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate and I am getting the check signal cable from the new monitor. Now I understand this has to do with installing the latest software from ATI which is my video card manufacturer. But it seems as though they do not have drivers for a Windows 7 equipped laptop. I am already not able to experience the "Aero" graphics features because I have an older video card. Am I out of luck here and need to purchase a new laptop? If not how can I get my laptop to work with my new monitor? Thank you.

A:Check signal cable with new Samsung monitor

Which cable are you using to connect the new monitor? Try both the combinations, that is VGA and DVI.

So tonight I shut down my computer and unplugged the VGA cable from my graphics card and tried to plug it into the VGA input on my motherboard. The reason for this was because I tried switched from dedicated graphics to integrated graphics (Long story). When it was plugged into the motherboard I tried switching my computer on and my monitor came up with 'no signal' and the light stayed orange. So I tried to plug The VGA cable back into my graphics card then I still got no signal!

II've tried everything from re-seating the graphics card and RAM to trying different monitors and cables. It simply isn't working and all I did was unplug the VGA cable from my graphics card into my motherboard VGA input. I can't post any detailed system info as I am writing this on my iPod (very time consuming!) as I can't even do anything on my computer. But my monitor was displaying everything perfectly fine before I unplugged my VGA cable (when my computer was shut down) I don't see what's causing this.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have a Gateway DX4200-09 - Vista OS with ATI Radeon HD3200. Connected via a DVI/HDMI cable to a Samsung Syncmaster 906BW. Was all working just fine until I moved it aside to clean. When I turned the PC back on, everything comes up with the exception of the monitor which displays a moving box labeled "Analog" instead of "Digital" and another box that says, Check Cable Signal or Check Signal Cable (can't remember). I called Samsung support and was told to change to 75hz and 1440/9?? resolution. I have connected the two with analog cables and it worked fine. I'm sure when I moved the monitor I more than likely pushed on the buttons underneath the front of the monitor which adjusts the settings. Samsung support again told me to adjust the monitor using the menu keys on the monitor. I would be glad to do this but nothing is displayed to know what I'm chanigng it to. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

A:Monitor Not Coming On-Check Cable Signal

Shut system down. Re-connect the analog cables, go into Device Manager & uninstall the video adapter
START | devmgmt.msc

Shutdown system. (Vista will re-install upon start-up)

Unplug the monitor from elec supply & computer after it is off. Wait 30 secs; reconnect other cables. Start system up & see if it works.

Hi there. For some reason all of a sudden, when plugging in my external display as usual using HDMI, not only did the external display not display anything (the message 'Power Saving Mode On' came up and the screen goes on standby) I was then left with just the internal monitor which was heavily distorted and everything was overlayed by a grid of small squares. I tried unplugging the monitor, reconnecting the HDMI, restarting my laptop with the cable attatched and then without, all to no avail. The only thing that I found to work was when I reconnected the HDMI cable (with the external still blank) I managed to get onto the Display > Screen Resolution screen and chose 'Duplicate these displays' option which has made my internal monitor work again but I still get no joy whatsoever from my external and when I unplug the HDMI, the internal monitor flicks blank and then reverts to being heavily distorted again.

A very bizarre problem !! Please pleae help! Many thanks in advance

My laptop is : HP Pavilion DV6 - 2112sa

O/S : Windows 7 64 bit

PS. I have tried my friends external monitor with a different cable and I still get an identical problem.

Hi, I have this problem, I would like to get help with.
When i plug my pc to led monitor using hdmi cable, and start to watch netflix or dvd disc movies, monitor keeps turning on and off randomly. The movie is going right as i hear the sound. But display keeps turning once, pause a few seconds, then turns off and on in a row, then it stops and goes again.
But, when i play a game, it goes well without a hitch, not a single turn in black. When I switch cable, it's the same thing. I tried changing res or refresh rate - same. Tried switching hdmi cables - same. Games works well, movies randomly turns monitor on and off.
And when I use my old DVI-I cable it works like a charm both ways.
Can Somebody tell me what is going on? Is my HDMI port failing? But what about games running like there's no problem.
