    Turning off TV drives i3 H55 HTPC nuts

    shaunpatrick77

      Hi

       

      I've built a HTPC based on a H55 motherboard, all was going well until I turned off the TV. The system reacted as though the monitor had been disconnected and started going though a HDMI plug and play sequence, and did the reverse when turning the TV on, except I just got a black screen.

       

      It seems that the H55 intergrated graphics does not cope with a monitor being turned off. I have never had this issue with separate graphics cards or integrated AMD/Nvidia graphics.

       

      Is there a way to stop the H55 from reacting to a hdmi monitor being turned off ?

       

      If there isn't it would sadly seem that the H55/57 chipsets are not a suitable integrated platform for HTPC's

       

      Thanks for any help.
