Windows 7: external monitor won't work

20 Aug 2010   #11

win7 home premium

I tried connecting another DVI monitor, less than a year old Samsung LCD, and it worked fine. So I don't think HDMI port is faulty in any way. What I think is that graphic card emits some newer standard of HDMI signal and my monitor is not capable of handling it. or there is some plug&play problem maybe, since the computer does not recognize it at all.

I spoke to Asus support and all they were able to tell me was to perform BIOS flah. Haven't tried that yet. I'll let you know later.
