I am running a dual-monitor setup on Windows 8 with an Intel HD 2500 graphics card (driver 10.18.10.3379). I run one monitor out of the VGA port and the other from the HDMI port.
All is well until the computer goes to sleep or I shut down, at which point only the VGA port will awaken (regardless of which of the two monitors is connected to it). If, however, I pull the VGA plug from the computer before awakening, the HDMI-connected monitor will turn on, and then I can plug in the VGA plug and get the dual-setup working.
It seems that the HDMI port will not turn on unless the GPU sees there is no monitor connected through the VGA. If that is the issue, is there any way to "force" the HDMI to life?
Could you please post the following information to help with resolving this issue?
1. System/motherboard manufacturer
2. System/motherboard model
5.Windows 64 or 32 bit?
6. HDMI display/TV model
7. Other peripheral attached to the system.
I am running a Levono H430, with a i5-3330 processor and 8GB of RAM.
Windows 8, 64 bit.
One monitor is a Dell ST24 and the other a Samsung SyncMaster 930b.
The only other things attached to the computer is a keyboard and mouse.
Thanks Sonny. One last question. Do you know if your system has the latest BIOS? It can be found here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT073549 http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT073549
One additional request. Could you please install the driver for your Dell display? It can be found here:
