This is where it gets tricky, lately , have been quite a few HDMI issues posted, Audio Manager issues with not having HDMI as default for sound, but, as far as your graphics, seems to me that since it works with VGA cables pretty much auto , it would seem that using HDMI would also pretty much do the same , right ? I am not the Forum Expert on this issue, just suggesting, that even tho the cable is brand new, it still could be at fault. I say that because of studies have shown SATA cables will vary on functionality although they can be brand new.
My next step is definitely to try a replacement cable, I will get one tomorrow and post back tomorrow evening with the results. I think your right to assume that HDMI is controlled automatically the same way as VGA.
I'll let you know how it goes with another HDMI cable.
Thanks for your advice
Sorry if I posted & upset you.
Please download & check the tutorial for activating the HDMI port output in this help file: -
When you press the Fn F4, does the "Easy Display Manager" configuration screen show up?
I am gonna put that in my Speed Dial for if this issue comes up again lottie, thanks . Hope it helps the OP...
Thanks for the E-Guide I'm sure it will come in handy in the future
Sorry for the delay took a while for me to get out to Argos, I got the HDMI cable replaced today for another new one. Still the same problem though, nothing happening at all when I connect to the TV, :/ Its also a brand new TV is it likely to be a fault with the TV or the HDMI port on the Laptop?
Thanks for your quick reply, lotties post is by far the best guide to using the HDMI function that I've seen, looks like it will come in handy for other features on the laptop in future.
Just to make sure I tried everything suggested in the guide when connecting my LT to the TV with the old cable and the new cable, still no joy.
From the beginning I've been trying the F key functions as I was used to using them when I connected to the TV by VGA but when I try to connect by HDMI and use the F keys it just brings up the laptop display.
Usually when I plug the VGA cable in the screen flickers and then the display shows up on the TV automatically. When I plug the HDMI cable in though the screen doesnt flicker, and theres no other type of response from the laptop to show that it has a new connection i.e, no beep (not that a beep is normal), no timmer (to show it processing), no screen flicker nothing :/
Try the Laptop on a different TV & the TV with a different HDMI source (Sky or DVD/ Bruray player).
What happens then?
