HP2159m monitor does not automatically detect HDMI input

HP Recommended

I have a newer HP Pavilion Elite with windows 7 and HDMI video output.  I made an HDMI to HDMI connection between my computer and HP 2159m monitor. Why does my HP2159m monitor not automatically detecting HDMI input? I have to manually change the source to HDMI then hit OK on the monitor to start working. Is there anyway where the HDMI default could be set?

HI Wsumabat!


 

What a great question!  I have included a link that gives the steps on how you can make your HDMI connection your default connection within your Windows 7 operating system.

Hi Wsumabat:

 

I regret that the link didn't work for you. I'm re-posting the complete link instead of the shortened one.

 

I hope this one works for you.

I have tried everything that was suggested on line but it is so frustrating that nothing worked.  I still get an error window when I turn on my computer -  CHECK YOUR VIDEO CABLE. I have to manually select HDMI input into my HP 2159m monitor every time.  Any other ideas?

Hi,

 

Be sure that you are using a native HDMI cable without adapters. Disconnect any other video cables going to the monitor. Additionally, go into the monitor's menu and go to Source Control and then Default Source and set the default source to HDMI.

I have the same issue, with the same monitor.

 

I am using a straight HDMI cable from the PC to the monitor. This is the only cable to the monitor. This monitor is not the primary monitor on my system, it is the second monitor. I tried setting it as the primary monitor and that did not help either.

 

Every time I go to use my PC I have to select the input.

 

None of the suggestions provided changed this.

 

I was given this monitor. I don't think I will ever buy an HP monitor. Not impressed by HP.
