HELP - JUST GOT THE HDMI-DVI CABLE FOR PC & LCD SETUP - DOES NOT WORK (VGA DOES) HELP

Hi Guys

I have a PC to LCD setup which I am running via VGA cable. Works fine as through the LCD menu I go to menu and select PC -no probs.

BUT

The new DVI-HDMI cable arrived this morning from Play. I hooked it up from the PC to the LCD setup PC (DVI) into HDMI 1) as directed from elonex manual (37" from bigpockets) and says no signal. Went over the manual a couple of times but no luck.

Cant understand why this is happening - tried the HDMI 2 socket - same result nothing.

I must be doing something wrong - HELP please

cheers in advance GF

setup your pc to output to the dvi socket?
#2
Have you tried selecting through all the sources on the LCD? Surely it now wont be on the PC source?

Thanks ESQ

Sorry for being just a novice but whats the best way to do that on my HP laptop nx6125. I guess somewhere via the control panel?

cheers

HI P

did that either no signal or a plain blue screen - really strange as the vga works a treat.

must be something simple - going to try that other setting ESQ has mentioned as soon as I get some more info

cheers

Sounds like the LCD is not publishing its information (plug and play) via the HDMI connection. What model are you using?

HI P

I think you are on the right track I got thinking about this and checked my nx6125 and this is what HP said

Does this mean - no DVI-HDMI connection for me ??

If so its VGA - is this correct?

Stupid question but, does the nx6125 have a DVI connection? I couldnt see one on the HP website!

Edit - Sorry of course it does! As you say I dont think this model supports DVI out and hence VGA is probably you're only option.

Cheers mate

Look like you are right there is DVI on the back of the dock but it does not support the HDMI etc. How poor is that!

Guess I need to stick to the VGA until I upgrade - shame was looking forward to quality pics.

Just need to find a normal pc audio cable now, No sound on the TV yet as the phono's were ready and wired for HDMI. Need to get a cheapo PC audio cable now).

Thanks for the help

TBH the vga is quality onto a hd telly, you wont really notice the diff, :thumbsup:

I guess you are right the VGA does the job - hopefully when I upgrade in the future will make sure that the new computer has HDMI ability.

cheers guys

also look in the lappies bios to see if the output can be switched between dvi/hdmi ,a few mainboards with onboard require this, double check also that it can do hdcp if the tv requires this but tbh if it is set up right in vga there will be no noticable diff in quality, unless you are a hawk ;)
