Windows 7: No video On Specific Display

26 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 64bit
No video On Specific Display

There I was trying to show off my HTPC to the INLAWS (darnit), and I get no picture when I enter Windows.

This rig has worked perfectly on a 42" Vizio for a couple years now, but the only way I can get windows to display is in safe mode (not even low-resolution). The HDTV I am plugging into (HDMI) is a 40" Phillips.

To make an odd thing even stranger, in dual display mode, if the TV is on a different input (such as T.V. or Xbox) I can see the computer recognizing it, modle number and all. The second I switch to the specific HDMI imput computer loses detection.

I updated to current driver's, no such luck. Any help would be nice.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums!

I think the HDMI cable might be causing the problem. Try inverting the ends of the cable, if that fails try any other cables that you have.
