Windows 7: Blue screen if startup with HDMI connected

18 Mar 2009   #11

Windows 7 64-bit

visited my parents and plugged my hdmi in. And I blue screened on their phillips tv when I booted up?!? So it rebooted and then i made sure the hdmi was fully plugged in then I booted up fine. I don't know if phillips has an issue but it is interesting.

So it isn't just me, and not the 7057 build in particular. I too end up in a start up crash, repair cycle if I start up with the brand new HDMI 1.3b cable plugged into my Dell HDTV set. If I plug in the VGA cable, it's very happy and works smoothly. I'm using a Gigabyte motherboard with an nVidia 7100 / 630 chipset. I have the most recent nVidia driver from the nVidia web site. I get the same response with build 7000 or 7057. I'll try the DVI connector next.

So I tried the same experiment with the DVI output and BOOM! Same crashing as with HDMI. Just maybe, the older 6000 and 7000 series nVidia GPUs don't like to do DVI or HDMI under Windows 7. Could be.

My HTPC is running Windows 7, and is connected to the same Dell LCD HDTV via a DVI to HDMI cable. Works flawlessly, of course. It's an ASUS motherboard with an nVidia 9300 chipset.

I also have similar problem. i dual boot w7 and xp on the same pc. every time i boot into a different os the blue screen come up on my hdtv, sometime if i reset my pc a few times it works fine. don't have that problem if i kept using the same os though. i had been told that some tv have older firmware might have problems when connecting HDMI Devices..unfortunately my HDTV don't have any firmware updates from the vendor.. so i can't be sure if this will fix the problem

I have a simple work-around for me on this HDMI boot crash. I connect both the VGA and HDMI to my Dell HDTV set. I have the VGA as the primary monitor with the HDMI as the secondary. With this setup it boots cleanly with no BSOD, crash. I have MC on the HDMI secondary monitor and the standard desktop on the VGA primary. So far, everything works fine. The only minor oddity is that with MC full screen on the secondary HDMI monitor, it "captures" the mouse pointer onto this secondary monitor. To use the mouse on the primary desktop, I have to set MC to not full screen with the normal icon in the upper right corner.

My windows 7 will BSOD on startup if I set the audio to hdmi output. I had to change the audio to speakers so it wouldnt BSOD.
