Windows 7: No HDMI output when lid closed - Sony Vaio Z2 with Intel HD 3000

No HDMI output when lid closed - Sony Vaio Z2 with Intel HD 3000

Hello folks,

I have setup extended monitors, and when I close laptop lid video on TV stop playing and shows me desktop from laptop. Tried "do nothing" when lid closed but that didn't do the trick.

My old Vaio VGN-Z (Nvidia Geforce 9300GS) had no issues when closing laptop lid.

Any idea how to resolve this issue, as it's quite annoying to me.


Cheers,
Miki

You might want to look at your power saving scheme and what functions are assigned to lid closure...

update: what I have also noticed, whenever I close laptop lid content from desktop is ported to TV, like TV is taking role of primary display. Re-opening lid reverts situation, desktop content goes back on laptop screen, while only desktop background/wallpaper is displayed on TV.

I don't know if this is normal, but it's definitely not the way old VGN-Z behaved and not the way I want. Closing/opening lid would not affect external display (TV would always show background only).

To be clear what I want to achieve: start movie on laptop, drag movie window over right/left screen edge of laptop to TV (as set to extended display), double click for full screen, close laptop lid and continue watching movie on TV.


Cheers,
Miki
