Pavilion x2 hdmi output not working

I have a pavilion x2 notebook/tablet and I am trying to connect it to a second moniter. The moniter only has a dvi and a vga port and the computer only has a hdmi port, so i bought this cable -- Link to Amazon Page --. The computer simply does not detect the moniter, no matter what we try, we think it is a problem with the hdmi driver, but we are not sure.

Hello @JuanWoe ,


Welcome to the HP Forums!


I understand you;re having issues connecting to an external monitor with your DVI to HDMI adapter cable.


Can you tell me if a VGA connection works?


You might want to try going through this document for some basic help: Connecting a Monitor, Projector or TV (Windows 8). This article has a section specifically for connecting with adapters.


You may be correct about it being a driver issues. Without knowing which product or operating system you have I can't help much in that area. 


For information on finding your product and model numbers click here: How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number? To see which version of Windows you are using click here: Which Windows operating system am I running?


Hopefully that document works for you. If not let me know and provide the product and operating system in your reply. Smiley Happy
