I have a HP Pavilion with a HDMI port and a HDTV with a HDMI port, when I hook the cable between them I don't have any single to the Tv. HDMI Cable and Tv condition work great as test between other devices. How do I setup the computer end? I can't find any options for outputting the HDTV.

Running on Windows Vista.

Of course and help will be greatly appreciated.

Terry.

Edit: extra data.

HP Pavilion
Windows Vista
GeForce 7600

I did that yesterday with my HP and it took about 2 mins to put a signal to my tv. No real explination, just took 2 mins.

Without indicating what video card the HP notebook is sporting, I can only go into generalities and extrapolate a bit using my Sony notebook (also with HDMI port)

The HDMI port in my notebook is considered an extension of the video graphics system. In my situation, an ATI Mobile Radeon 3650. Hooking it up via HDMI cable to the TV won't necessarily output a signal by default.

I've got an ATI icon on my Vista's SystemTray that'll directly lead me to the "Catalyst Control Center" where it'll let me activate and dictate the content coming out of the HDMI port (mirrored, desktop extension, etc). The notebook's screen is considered "Monitor 1" and whatever else connected to HDMI is considered "Monitor 2" but the ATI software lets me swap those settings.

For those without an ATI SysTray icon, or a non-ATI video card for that matter (nVidia, Intel GMA, etc), the videocard settings in Vista is accessed by right-clicking anywhere on the Desktop, select "Personalize", then "Display Settings" and check the various tabs following the "Advanced" button to see if it gives you further control of the HDMI port.

YMMV as HDMI behavior probably differs across different notebook manufacturers.

If you have an nvidia card, right click on the desktop and you should see nvidia settings and that should open your video card tools, and select your monitor like cartertg described.

Sorry CarterTG It's a Nvidia GeForce Go 7600, I also added it above for the new reader.

I don't see anything under Display option for setting up HDMI, I see Monitor 2, but can't seem to do anything with it, I can click on it but have less option and only have a 800x600 res.

With the Nvidia Control I can't find anything to do with setting up HDMI, but I don't understand half of what I'm looking at, so that could be part of the problem.

jester4 under setting multiple displays I seem to only have the main display and can not un-select 'only use one display', and If I use Rigorous Display detection it comes back unable to find additional displays. Also Force television detection is grayed out and can't be selected. Is it possible that the ability to use multiple displays is disabled some where in Windows Vista?

westcoastchoper I can make toast in two minutes, If you can't make toast is that statement remotely helpful?

Yes, everything I've tried has been done with the cable connected. Even rebooted the computer.

OK . Open the nvidia control panel . On the right hand side ,open the "Display" menu and select either "Run multiple display wizard" or "Set up multiple displays" . Remember to select the "clone" option .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

Sorry I must be blind, I can't find the multiple display wizard anywhere. Looking under Display, Set up multiple displays. Is this the right place.

You must have a different version of the control panel !
OK , try something different . Just left click on the Desktop to open the display properties . Now , does left clicking on the greyed out monitor 2 , allow you to select "attached" ?

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

When I left click on it, it highlights in blue. If I hold the mouse over it, it says "Not Active". I don't see anywhere to attach.

And sorry to say this late, Thanks for for tring to help.

Looking for a new Nvidia control panel on there set, no luck yet.

I can help further when I get home tonight unless you get it going by then. I don't have my home laptop in front of me.
