Laptop freezes when I plug in HDMI to monitor

When I plug a HDMI cable to my laptop, the screen freezes and forms a black box around the screen. The only thing I can see is my screen background image. Cannot do anything, the system is totally frozen. When I disconnect it everything works fine again. What should I do? I use a HP ENVY DV7-7250us with WIN7 (64 bit) installed thanks! B


It sounds as if there is a problem with the TV\Monitor. I see that you have not specified which other inputs has the device. This would help. Call you a monitor. The rest of us use LCD screens. It is only 20 inches by your description. I wouldn't use it if it would not accept a video signal with a resolution higher than 1024 x 768.

Creating identical threads is frowned upon here. I'll ask a moderator to remove one on the same subject.

  • envy15: sound does not work when I plug my HDMI port monitor

    I have a new HP Envy15laptop and an older AcerAC2016W with VGA connection.  I bought a cable adapts hdmi vga.  When I plug my monitor, the noise stops.  If I unplug the monitor portable speakers work fine.

    Hi, l

    I do not know what VGA to HDMI Cable you speak but VGA does not carry sound and your machine can judge use HDMI audio so it stops sound with HDMI, if you want to use the sound on your computer, you should disable the HDMI sound:

    Right click on speaker icon > devices back select Play

    Select use internal sound and turn off the HDMI sound (if it is there)

    You will need to enable when using pure HDMI (IE HDMI to HDMI TV for example)

    Kind regards.

    Sorry to hear the bad experiences your having with the new HP I have expected some resolution about HP for you, but I guess that your next step is to enter the HP support and talk to a Manager or supervisor and get a resolution a bit if you can the stock market that. Otherwise if an is another portable computer W8 wifi even goes down so you might go for W7 that is or is not hp laptop and I hope that your experience will be better this time.

  • My screen goes black when I plug an HDMI cable

    I have a desktop Dell 660 s with Windows 8.  I try to be able to sync my TV led with my pc.  When I plug the hdmi cord, my monitor Gets a black screen.  The only thing that shows is the arrow / the mouse cursor.  My TV can not detect the computer.  When I unplug the hdmi cable, the screen goes back to normal.  Help, please.


    If Windows is displayed on your TV, you will need to reconnect the computer to your monitor and adjust the screen resolution before connect you to your TV. If your computer does not support the type of video connection you need, you may be able to install a new video card that has the right connection.

    Step 1:

    After that you have the right cable, follow these steps to connect your computer to your TV:

    (a) turn off your computer and place it near your TV. Unplug the monitor, but leave the mouse and keyboard connected.

    (b) connect the appropriate video cable from your computer's output to your TV.

    (c) turn on your TV and set it to the input that matches the output on your computer. You may need to refer to the supplied with your television user's guide for instructions on how to do it.

    (d) turn on your computer.

    You should see windows displayed on your TV. If the screen looks stretched, or part of the screen seems cut off, you will probably have to adjust the screen resolution in Windows. For more information, see getting the best display on your monitor.

    Step 2:

    Try to activate and set the digital output HDMI as default device.

    (a) click the Windows key + X, and then Control Panel.

    (b) click on hardware and soundand then click manage audio devices.

    (c) click on the reading tab.

    (d) in the empty space of reading devices do a right-click and use the option to show all disabled devices, you should get a popup upwards with HDMI digital output.

    (e) If you find digital HDMI output Device, right-click on it and set it as default communications device.

    It will be useful.

  • When I plug a hdmi cable my laptop turns off

    Whenever I plug a HDMI cable for laptop may it instantly stops and cannot restart until the cable has been disconnected. I only bought the laptop 4 months that when checking to see if something was faulty output HDMI was working fine; now, it will not work. When looking on Device Manager I couldn't find a driver for the port (is he wants to be one) and I tried to update drivers, but still the same problem.

    I have an acer aspire 5738z

    Usually, there is no driver listed for the HDMI driver.  HDMI is an output video "high-end" and it is usually controlled by the video card.

    Try another HDMI cable.   Try another TV.

    If the HDMI port always stops the laptop, you may need to take to a service center.  This could be a------hardware problem.

  • Computer screen turns off when I plug an HDMI cable

    Initially, I had both my tv and computer off. I plugged the dvi to tv and the HDMI to laptop and turned them both on. I had no problems using my laptop I tried to synchronize the computer to the TV. However I must have accidentally hit something in the graphics options as my laptop screen went black. I unplugged my laptop hdmi cable and the screen returns to the top. But now, for some reason whenever I plug the HDMI cable for the laptop, the screen goes black. When I take it on it the screen comes back to the top. I have something that is originally for this change? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  • Laptop freezes when running applications

    I got a G6 Pavilion - 2263ca with Windows 8. When I open an application on the start screen, the laptop freezes and closed. I ran a system recovery and all the system diagnostics, but nothing has changed and I can't find a hardware problem. I sent it for repair in the workshop, they replaced the HARD drive and reinstalled the OS but nothing changes. Right now, all I can do is reinstall the RAM, but seriously, I don't think it will solve the problem. Please help me :-(


    Try the following.

    In regards to the manual maintenance on the link below, delete one of your memory modules and then see if the laptop works Ok.  If it doesn't, try the same module, but in another location.  If it is still working properly, try the other memory module in both slots, to see if any combination will allow the laptop to run without freezing.

    The procedure for withdrawal of these modules is detailed from Page 55 of your & Maintenance Guide.

  • laptop freezes when performing automatic maintenance

    My sony vaio SVE15137CGW (Windows 8) started to freeze when the automatic Maintenance starts (after staying idle for a few minutes). A black clock appears on the task bar, so I know that the service is running. I can market to stop the gel which is a real nuisance.

    What could cause this problem and how can I solve this problem? How can I disable the automatic maintenance until I solved the problem? I followed the instructions on the Web page below, but the interview turned on even once after a reboot:


    Automatic maintenance facilitates efficiency slowed and allows the activity to execute in a timely and prioritized way. So, the event that is configured to run will begin when the previously described (defined by default at 02:00 every day).

    the default configuration from the active automatic maintenance should do no harm at all. However, personal computers are not always lit, and nor are they heavily loaded by processes or data. Therefore, it is recommended to disable the automatic maintenance in personal computers to avoid the processing overhead.

    After the automatic maintenance turned off, you can manually optimize your PC by manually initializing the command CHKDSK of disk defragmentation, etc..

    You can check the link to find out how to disable the automatic Maintenance using Task Scheduler tasks:

    Refer to the suggestion which is marked as an answer:

    If you do not find the same performance after you disable the automatic Maintenance, reactivate tasks.

  • Laptop freezes when restored from sleep mode.

    I'm running Windows XP, SP3 on a laptop Lenovo Thinkpad 61 T.
    My computer works fine, except that if I put in mode 'sleep' and then wake it, it freezes. Even the Windows shut down does not work, and I have to restart with the power button.  When the computer reboots, it works fine.  I did virus scans and even replaced the operating system and installed programs with an image that I made well before this problem started.
    I could use some advice.  Thanks in advance.

    Could be something as simple as a video driver, or a change in the power settings.

    Can first update you your video driver to the latest version available?

    The go to start > Search > type CMD > right click and run as admin > type powercfg /a

  • Laptop freezes when connected to internet via WiFi

    I use the laptop Dell inspiron 15r, with Windows 7 ultimate on it. Whenever I connect to the internet via WiFi, after a while, most of the programs I use freezes, and the internet connection is cut off. The same control panel functions do not occur. Also is not possible the normal closing, and I have to force close down at length by pressing the power button. This situation arises that if I use the WiFi. When I use a LAN cable, no problem. This situation is quite irritating, like many times I have no other choice than to use a wi - fi connection and whenever I use it after a few minutes, I have to restart with force, and the cycle repeats. Please suggest a solution. Thank you.

    Hello Brad,

    Thank you much for the help.

  • Laptop freezes when I connect AC adapter / CC

    Hello. I have a Dell Latitude E7440. The laptop starts with the office end while its connected to the power adapter. It starts very well in a stack on the desktop and works normally. But the problem occurs when I connect to the AC adapter when the laptop is turned on, it freezes, for example when sound on the desk and I connect to the AC adapter, it freezes and does not respond. When I unplug the AC adapter, it takes over and works normally again. When I connect to the AC adapter again it hangs and when I disconnect, it resumes its normal operation. The third time that I connect to the adapter, it does not freeze. What could be the problem? Any help is appreciated please.
