With the online help to fix no signal on hdmi cable on older soniq tv they all Say is to go to display settings or video playback and find hdmi. Nowhere in my settings can I find anything relating to hdmi.
So I have a laptop with Intel HD Graphics 530 (integrated graphics), and I ran into a problem I hadn't run into before and I think the culprit is that the laptop is sending w.e. resolution my laptop thinks is the "best" and just scaling it to match what "I" want the resolution to be (I think this might be a feature update?). My laptop is connected via HDMI to a receiver, and the receiver is connected to a TV. I know my TV is NOT 4K capable, but my receiver is. When I connect the laptop it automatically sets the display resolution to 3840 x 2160... 4K. So it seems my laptop is detecting the receiver accepts 4k and it's sending 4k signal. But my TV does not, and so I just see a black screen (but sound works via the receiver). I tried to lower the resolution of the TV signal, but my laptop keeps insisting on sending 3820x2160 resolution by scaling w.e. it's displaying to what I want the signal to be (frustrating!). I've played with the aspect ratio settings to no success... how do I set my "Active signal resolution" manually?
I had the same problem, and for me at least clicking on "Display adapter properties for Display 2" let me pick the right resolution.I went to Settings>System>Display>Advanced display settings>Display adapter properties for Display 2
Basically make sure that in the settings for the Intel graphics, the scaling is set to "Maintain Display Scaling." For some reason when I played with this setting it didn't work the first time, but I made sure I set the correct resolution and selected that "Maintain Display Scaling," and the "Active Signal Resolution" matched the "Desktop Resolution."
Both resolutions are set to 1080p.For my 4K-TV the active signal resolution was 3840x2160 instead of 1080p UNTIL I changed the setting in the Intel Graphics Command center (I think AMD/Nvidia have similiar settings) for the TV from 'Maintain Display Scaling' to 'Maintain Aspect Ratio'.
I had the same problem and got a work aroundI got intel graphic settings opened, installed google remote desktopthen project it to second monitor only which will just have no signal since the active signal was higher than the resolution my monitor can handle by having remote desktop i configured through my phone the settings in intel graphic settings and find the appropriate resolution and voila it works now.
After setting a resolution, scroll down in the same section and click Advanced display under the Related settings section. Select the monitor you want to change the refresh rate for at the top.
Resolution can often change by itself on Windows because of a corrupted graphics driver or a conflicting third-party app. If this is the case with your display, you can easily fix it by changing the resolution settings.
A third-party app may override the screen resolution you set on Windows and apply a resolution it requires to properly run and display its content. The most common example is games. Games typically have an option to change the resolution within their settings, and that's where you'll be able to control it.
If you've got multiple monitors connected to your PC, and one or more of them seem to have a resolution problem, try checking the Display Mode settings on Windows. If you're duplicating a display on two screens that have different resolutions, one of them will have the wrong resolution.
Review your resolution settings: Go through our resolution section above, and make sure that your resolution settings match each monitor you are using. Use recommended or screen-fitting options where possible.
You may have to fiddle with the timings and other advanced options in these tools to get your custom resolutions to work. For example, I needed to change my Timing Standard to CVT - Reduced Blanking in AMD's settings or Automatic - LCD Standard in CRU.
If you run into any issues and can't get your TV to display the desktop, reboot into Safe Mode, clear the custom resolutions you created, and try again. Your mileage may vary with this method depending on your TV and PC. I found that my desktop worked great with my LG TV using both Nvidia and AMD video cards, but an Nvidia-equipped laptop wouldn't work with the same custom resolution settings on the same TV. Life's a mystery.
To change your display settings back to normal, go to display settings and change the resolution back to its initial value.How Do I Fix My Screen When It Displays Only Half?Open the display and select customize option. Go to screen settings, scroll the resolution bar to the fullest, and click on ok.On Windows 10, where are the HDMI settings?Hit the volume symbol on the taskbar. After that, choose HDMI or Digital Output Device from the freshly opened Playback screen after picking Playback devices. Choose Set Default, then press OK.
Thanks Alex - I will check NVIDIA support. I am running also the recommended resolution in Windows 7 and started with checking the NVIDIA settings but nothing really made a difference. I will try to keep this threat open for a short while so I can maybe put experience with NVIDIA support in here.
1. In the Control Panel (Press the Win+R keys to open Run, type Control, click/tap on OK) -> Appearance and Personalization -> Display -> Screen Resolution, here can adjust the resolution; then click Advanced settings to confirm screen frequency.
Hey, i hope this will help some of you if you still have the same issue. My monitor Viewsonic VA 1916w, native resolution 1440x900 65Hz. Suddenly yesterday this resolution didnt worked out anymore, my max refresh rate according to windows (10 Anniversary) was 82 and thats it, Before was 65-75.
Well, i have an old VGA samsung syncmaster,and it was working fine with resolution 1440x900until i unplugged it and shifted it to my new desk. after i plugged it back in, all the text has become SLIGHTLY FUZZY , and it just dosent look right to me.windows(and nvidia) say the res is still 1440x9000 @ 60kHz but my monitor says its 1680x1050 @ 65.2 kHz
Try going into the Nvidia settings and under change resolution settings, changing the output color depth from 8 bpc to 12 bpc. My problem was the screen would flash black(reset) whenever video loaded(from ads or programs) multiple times. Took me forever to figure it out. Works with Win7 and Win10.
My basic set up is below. My new monitor is supposed to be 2560 x 1440 but only 1920 x 1080 shows in the Windows settings or the AMD Catalyst Control Centre settings. I've updated the drivers to what came with the monitor and so the monitor name shows in the windows settings, and all software updates have been installed. So, I'm out of ideas and it's driving me crazy.
@axar..............Just got a great deal @micro Center for a Samsung UR590C 32" curved max rated for 3840x2160. Thought my "great deal" @ 1/2 price was for nothing as my HDMI (tried a display port cable too) connected ATI Radeon 5700HD from 10+ years ago only showed resolution choices up to 1920x1080 in windows. Checked specs for the ATI and updated all drivers and still no joy and no advise from Micro tech chats.
Connected my new Macbook 12 Retina to my Dell U3011 (30" 2560x1600 native) via the Apple USB-C Digital AV adapter and HDMI. The max resolution I can set is 1920x1200. On the display settings page on my Macbook, it's set to 60hz and there's no option to lower it to 30hz. Any ideas?
Windows users: your graphics driver may allow you to add a custom resolution. I use 24 as the horizontal settings (front, scan and back intervals / porch) and 6 for the verticals. With the resolution above, 50Hz pushes the pixel clock to 212 MHz I believe, which seems to be about the limit the HDMI input can handle.
You can set individual display mode and resolution for each display connected to your PC, laptop or other Windows 10 device. The operating system remembers these settings by storing them in a cache and applies them every time you connect the earlier configured monitor. This is very time saving, as you don't need to reconfigure an external display once you connect it.
You may face the zoomed-in resolution on the second monitor if its settings (especially, if you are using a TV as a monitor) are not properly configured. In this case, making the relevant changes (as discussed below) may solve the problem. But keep in mind that some of these settings may not be available to all users or the instructions slightly differ (you may have to dig deeper to make it work for you).
The 2nd monitor may show zoomed-in resolution if the display settings of your system are not properly configured. In this context, editing the relevant display settings (discussed below) of your system may solve the problem. You may also try these edits in the graphics control panel (like Nvidia Control Panel). If you are encountering the zoomed-in issue with some applications, check if launching these applications in the compatibility mode solves the problem.
Setting to 1 will remove all other modes except the ones specified by hdmi_mode and hdmi_group from the internal list, meaning they will not appear in any enumerated lists of modes. This option may help if a display seems to be ignoring the hdmi_mode and hdmi_group settings.
Note that this simply creates the mode (group 2 mode 87). In order to make the Raspberry Pi use this by default, you must add some additional settings. For example, the following selects an 800 × 480 resolution and enables audio drive: 2b1af7f3a8
