Product: HP Pavilion Desktop - TP01-0110a
I'm Seeking an information from owners of the HP Pavilion's, All in One, model 27-XA AIO i7. Important is that you are a user of a secondary monitor with your system, which is connected via the HDMI cable.
I'm experiencing a "strange" problem with the picture displayed on my second monitor, the picture is washed out and appears to be over exposed. If i.e. I display an Excel spreadsheet on a main monitor all is OK, but on the secondary monitor the same spreadsheet does not show any of the cell boarders, as well if I display a "colour wheel" on both monitors, the pictures on the on the second monitor colours are distorted and overexposed. After a lot of monitors, cables and motherboard swapping I come to the conclusion (stend to be corrected) that the issue is in the computer and that the HDMI output has a design problem.
Did anyone had observed similar issue? Does anyone experience such problem? Does anyone have a solution to this issue?
PS: my solution, for now, is to use a USB to HDMI converter but this only mask but not resolve/fixes egisting problem!

Hi Elohl_NR ,
Please find attached following picture, they are not the best colour ways, camera angles etc, but I think they demonstrate my issue.
Picture 1 Main Computer - a colour wheel displayed on the All in One
Picture 2 M27fe New Monitor - the same colour wheel displayed on secondary monitor via HDMI cable.
Picture 3 M27fe via laptop - the same colour wheel displayed on new monitor with a laptop as a feed.
As you can see on P2 in particular the yellows and centre of a wheel are washed out, the resolution is not there, if this monitor receives feed from a laptop, it shows colour wheel correctly.
Out of this I concluded that there is nothing wrong with the secondary monitor and as a motherboard of my computer has been replaced as well by HP the only conclusion, I'm drawing is that there is an issue with the computer/motherboard! As both motherboards display the same problem, and a graphics chip is part of the motherboard. I'm attempting to resolve/find a solution to the problem as currently, as a solution to resolve/mask this problem I'm using a USB to HDMI converter to feed my secondary monitor so I can obtain a good quality picture on it and be able to work comfortably.
I hope this demonstrate and explain my issue in detail.
