    My computer doesn't show a HDMI cable but says shutting down monitor


    I recently switched cables from DVI to HDMI. My computer doesn't automatically switch to the HDMI but says 'no cable connected' yet when I manually switch on the monitor, the HDMI is active. What do I need to do to get the HDMI detected on boot?

    :)

  2. HDMI to DVI Monitor Will Not Play Audio

    This is complicated. I started out having a simple television monitor, connected to a VGA cable to my computer. Recently, I decided to have dual monitors. I got an HDMI cable and a HDMI to DVI converter because my computer doesn't have a HDMI port. After
    plugging everything in, setting up, I had two monitors: the television, and a secondary screen. Putting audio through right from the pc works, or simply plugging earphones into the audio jack on the computer. The television, however, does not play sound anymore.
    I updated, disabled, did everything for the drivers. Didn't seem to work. I'm not sure if I should still connect the audio cable from the television to the back of the computer, since HDMI cables support both audio and video. When I right click playback devices,
    and check disabled and disconnected devices, HDMI does not show up at all. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Do I need an audio cable, or is the HDMI cable enough?

    I'm currently using the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC on an HP Pavilion Desktop Computer.

    Thanks! Any help will be appreciated!

    Lumia 620 doesn`t connect to computer via usb cable

    Hi yall and thanks for the replies!



    Unfortunately, the were of no help.



    The phone isn`t listed in device manager, the list of devices doesn`t change if I have my phone connected to my computer(s). There are no mystery devices, no yellow triangle -markings or anything even remotely pointing to the direction the phone being connected.

    It could be that my phone has a broken usb port, but it makes me wonder that it still charges the battery when connected to a computer.



    This is not a big problem for me, that I must admit, but still, it kinda bugs me that the phone doesn`t work the way it`s supposed to work,



    Anyways, if somebody comes up with something that might help, I am most grateful.



    Have a great weekend yall!



    -



    edit: Also, I have my laptop almost always connected to charger. Tried without charger just for the heck of it, didn`t help.

    My computer doesn't show a HDMI cable but says shutting down monitor

    Why exactly is ATi considered be better at HDMI?

    I plug my HDMI cable into the card, then into my TV. Those are the steps that I have to do. All the steps you list make absolutely no sense to me.
