I have a work around, after the system has booted using a VGA connection
Control panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Display Adapter -> Right Click on The Intel HD Graphics -> Disable Device
Control panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Display Adapter -> Right Click on The Intel HD Graphics -> Enable Device
After that the HDMI and DVI connectors work.
So if you could script this process at Windows Boot time, Disable the HD graphics card and Enable it, the HDMI output or DVI output should enable. If Intel can figure out why this trick works and fix the driver, then I would be happy.
We now believe Intel HD Graphic output to HDMI port hardware and software are defective.
We have Intel DZ68DB motherboard with build in DVI and HDMI and Displayport output ports.
CPU is i7-2600K (and assume it has internal graphic processor). OS is Microsoft Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1.
BIOS set primary display to DVI, secondary display to HDMI.
Intel DZ68DB motherboard BIOS version DBZ6810H.68A.001.2011.0401.1616
Intel HD Graphic Processor 3000 Video BIOS 2111.0
Device Manager - Display Driver - from Intel - 2-14-2012. Driver version: 188.8.131.5253
For weeks, this two DVI & HDMI monitors as extended displays work fine together.
One day, we booted the system without turn on the HDMI monitor.
Ever since, we are unable to make the system to detect the presence of HDMI display.
Yes, we done the device manager - device driver disable - device driver enable. Did not work.
Yes, we done the control panel - display - change display setting - detect. Did not work.
Yes, we done the Intel Graphic and Media Control Panet - Multiple display. Only detect one display.
Yes, we disconnected the DVI display and boot with only HDMI display connected. Yes, the system booted and seemed running. But HDMI display is black.
I have the same problem. Core i5 in a MOBO: Asus P8H77-I.
HDMI works fine after the driver is installed. But when I reboot: HDMI is not found by Windows 7.
Dude, you're genius. I was trying to make my hdmi work for several days with zero success, read ton of topics, eventually lost any hope. And your workaround made it work in just few seconds. Awesome!
UPD: unfortunately both Peter's and kachiko's solutions work only before reboot in my case.
Actually it is standard VGA driver works after the driver is installed and before reboot. Intel driver is invoked after reboot in the moment when login screen appears. This is why everybody get black screen after windows boot. When Intel driver gets active hdmi output fails.
Also it is interesting how Peter's workaround made HDMI work. It could give some insight for Intel about cause of problem.
Was this issue ever resolved?
I've been struggling to get a new PC up and running for a relative - its rocking a Haswell chipset with an Intel HD4600, and I'm trying to connect up a Hazro HZ27WC monitor via DVI. Sadly I'm finding that I can't get it running, either as a primary or secondary display. As described i this thread I get some activity during boot up, but then it does black. When setup as secondary, its just shown as "Digital" with the resolution and settings greyed out.
I'm stumped and its all very frustrating. If any of you guys have found a proper solution I'd love to hear about it...
Experiencing the same issue with the black screen after installing the Intel HD 4600 driver.
Disabling and Enabling sounds like a excellent simple solution, unfortunately, I'm on an ASUS Deluxe Dual MOBO that does not have a VGA output.
Appreciate any advice on how best to resolve this without the use of a VGA output.
Many thanks in advance guys!
I too am afflicted. HD3000 Graphics. Gigabyte H61N-USB3 I3 2150 . I once found a solution somewhere when trying to make this a Mac Mini clone. It actually involved installing rebooting etc... in a certain order . My system worked for a long time both on Mac Lion & on win 7 . Now Im on win 8 and I cant find the original post I had followed. I can get my system to sporatically detect HDMI but it just flashes a horizontal random colored line or a solid pattern (currently purple) screen. Resolution detected at oddball on 42 Vizio 420VL TV, such as 3840 x 72, 1920 x 2, xxxx x 150, etc..... I can use vga and most times dvi to hdmi simultaneously. However sometimes when problematic I unplug vga reboot and dvi to hdmi out is in extended secondary mode and useless. I like to only use hdmi or dvi as I leave the VGA available to work on customer computers. Ironic as I cant seem to fix my own!!
Not familiar with this forum's timing, idiosyncracies, etc, so this comment may show up twice.
It appears there is a known solution for this problem, embedded in the latest drivers. I won't try to post the link (that seems to blow up the forum submission sequence) but I found references to the latest drivers at Dell (where I had purchased the system with the problem) and several other locations.
Uninstall and reinstall the video driver, problem goes away.
I recommend you downloading and installing the latest driver version we have from our side. It can be downloaded at the following link:
It is important to mention that the driver provided before is a generic driver.
I tried that Kevin, but I still can't get HDMI to work. I have DVI to HDMI cable (the third one since tech support decided the cables were bad). I have hooked up to 4 different TV's since tech support IBM and Samsung decided the TV's were at fault. Evidently none of the above technicians are aware of this known problem which I found by googling. Can you tell me if there is a solution? I can only get the Intel HD graphics card to work in VGA but want to use a newer, larger TV which only has HDMI inputs
I too am having the same problem. i7 4770K with gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3. Works fine on DVI with NO Intel HD driver loaded (Using Microsoft basic display driver). Poor performance but works with good colour.
Install the latest driver from the Intel site (3165) and I lose the DVI signal part way through Win8 loading.
Swap to VGA and the signal is there but the colours are all messed up. Eg folders are red and cannot be corrected. (I need to check the VGA cable but I do not have a spare at the moment.)
Before I knew this was a common fault I emailed Intel support and have not yet had a reply.
Will I have to buy a new graphics card? I was hoping to avoid the expense for a while, and any recommendations for a mid range card to suit the Gigabyte would be welcome.
PS I am sorry to say that none of the workarounds worked for me.
That also happened to me, except I was using a DVI connection. But I was using vista and running a old game. The start button had tiny dots all over it and it looked like 8 or 16 bit colors. I hope this gave you a hint of what do fix.
