tv not picking hdmi signal from x51 after restarting

the first time i boot up my new x51, i used the hdmi cable to output on my samsung tv... the pc detected the cable and had no problem displaying it on the tv.... however, after i restart the pc, the tv is not detecting anything from the x51! how do i fix this? i do not have a vga cable right now so i dont have any alternatives.... are there anyways we can reset the display to hdmi with any key combination on the keyboard?

Are you both using the onboard HDMI Intel HD2000 or the HDMI on the Geforce GT545/GT555?

Geforce GT545/GT555 i think. right after i started to install the microsoft windows 7 home premium sp1 64 bit -  my screen went blue and said no signal. the only thing i would guess to do is to go to walmart and buy a different video cable...

You might ask the OS guys, but I do not know if the HDMI out works when installing the OS clean from the OS CD? I thought you had to use VGA or DVI?

i've fix the problem by using a dvi to hdmi cable.....  i guess the pc doesn't automatically detects the hdmi output... either that, or there's no way to use the hdmi port as the primary display output for the pc.... oh well...

Re: tv not picking hdmi signal from x51 after restarting

I just received my x51 today and it ran great for a few hours using the hdmi to a tv. Did all my basic new computer stuff and after a reboot the hdmi out  on the board stopped working. I had to use video card and connect to a monitor to see the comp screen. While it was running on the monitor I plugged in the hdmi from the tv but the comp wouldn't/couldn't detect the tv. Not sure if the comp settings are running only the video card outputs and not from the discrete mb graphics.

The gtx555 has a Mini-HDMI port. To get it to run on your TV, you'll need a Mini-HDMI to HDMI cable. I had no problems going from both PC display to TV. I know the integrated card is HDMI. Are you sure your using the right port?

Re: tv not picking hdmi signal from x51 after restarting

I saw the mini  hdmi port on the card. I ordered a Mini-HDMI to HDMI cable today. When I first unpacked the computer I used the full  size hdmi port to plug it into my tv. It worked fine. Sound too. The computer did its updates and when it said restart I did and the hdmi port hasn't  worked since. I think this might be a software setting that changed somehow. It just seemed strange that it no longer even recognizes the tv as a 2nd screen in the display settings. This is my first new  pc computer in almost 10 years so I apologize if my tech savvy isn't up to date.
