Windows 7: Asus M4A785-M On-board graphics help needed please

Asus M4A785-M On-board graphics help needed please

Hello everyone

I built my own system a couple of years ago and I am now facing a technical problem.

My graphics currently rely on the Radeon HD 4770. I decided I would like to display my desktop on my television via HDMI cable.

After staring at a blank screen for a while and scratching my head I realised HDMI must rely on integrated graphics. I went into bios, Northbridge, Integrated Graphis which presented 4 configuration options and not knowing what these mean I just chose IGFX-GFX0-GPP-PCI.

This just led to a blank monitor and I had to reset my BIOS via battery removal to get back into my system. What configuration should I choose? How can I get my desktop displayed on my TV?

Your help is really appreciated.

Peter

Are you connecting your TV (HDTV) to your GPU or your mobo? If you could fill in your system specs this will greatly increase you chances for us to properly help you.

After looking at the specs of your mobo and checking the drivers for the latest, I see that there is a BIOS update that was released 12/2012 vs 1101. I also see there is an AMD HDMI driver update released 12/2010. Do you have those driver updates?

Although, it should work using the HDMI cable with your mobo. Once it's connected you have to make sure the windows detects it. Right click any where on the open desktop, then click screen resolution, then click detect and from there you should be able to set it up by extending it.

Hi Bassfisher,

Assuming that 1 is the TV, where it says extend this display, click on it...that should show your desktop on your TV.
