HDMI probs

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Since a windows update the HDMI port doesn't work (There is always something that stops bloody working every time!). I have tried a different HDMI, turning it off and on again, resetting the BIOS, it says it is up to date for windows, I have disabled the HD graphics to be able to use the NVIDIA this just made my display look very odd! I have updated the drivers to both graphics. I have checked the display settings and tried the extended projection. I have also tried running scans in command and then restarting. Never had a problem before now with the laptop projecting, the HDMI lead or the television. I can connect my Pavillion to the television using the same cable but I need to display an app that this laptop isn't updated to do.

Please help, I have spent 6 hours in total trying to find a solution to this problem and none seem to work. More than a little bit sick of this happening every update. So far owning this computer I have noticed I lost my microphone (very handy during covid), thumbprint recognition, wireless and now this! God knows what else I have lost/doesn't now work that I don't know about (sigh)

For me to assist you with accurate information I would require more information regarding this.

  • Did you connect this computer to another external TV or screen it and check if it works?
  • Did you try multiple HDMI cables?
  • Please provide the complete model# of the computer to assist you better.

For now please try these steps:

  • Right-Click on the start button> click device manager> expand display adapters>then select the display drivers that are listed and right-click on it and uninstall the drivers.
  • Check the box that states delete the software for this device.
  • Then restart the computer and update the bios chipset and graphics drivers from this link:  After following the on-screen instructions and selecting the correct Operating system.
  • If it still does not fix the issue, please perform the relevant steps for HDMI related issues from this link: regarding video issues. If there is no hardware issue with the computer, this should do the trick for you.
