Plugging the HDMI cable into the GPU caused me to lose all video and audio output. The monitor displays “Not Connected” when a DVI or VGA cable is plugged into the motherboard.
I have an ASUS A7V600-X motherboard with a NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 video card. The monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 940BF LCD.
High Definition Multimedia Interface
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a proprietary audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from an HDMI-compliant source device, such as a display controller, to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. HDMI is a digital replacement for analog video standards.
An AV receiver for use in home cinema from 2012. The upper row of connectors are HDMI. HDMI implements the EIA/CEA-861 standards, which define video formats and waveforms, transport of compressed and uncompressed LPCM audio, auxiliary data, and implementations of the VESA EDID.(p. III) CEA-861 signals carried by HDMI are electrically compatible with the CEA-861 signals used by the Digital Visual Interface (DVI). No signal conversion is necessary, nor is there a loss of video quality when a DVI-to-HDMI adapter is used.
Graphics Processing Unite
A graphics processing unit (GPU) is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics and image processing.
Their highly parallel structure makes them more efficient than general-purpose central processing units (CPUs) for algorithms that process large blocks of data in parallel. In a personal computer, a GPU can be present on a video card or embedded on the motherboard. In certain CPUs, they are embedded on the CPU die
By installing a GPU, you’re essentially replacing the integrated graphics that comes from the motherboard. If you have a GPU, you should definitely use the HDMI port on the card.
I am using Asus P4S133 with mother board intel 945G and VGA card Nvidia 6800GT,when I tried to connect the vga cable to my PC screen thats when i got this error “not connected” ,but when i plug the same cable at the back of VGA card in any slot it works fine,any solution for this?
IF you can not successfully use your Video Card then what good is that part of your PC doing there? Why run like that? If you must use the Video Card then you need to find out why it suddenly stopped working. I would unplug my monitor cable and plug it back in making sure it is in all the way. Do this once for the DVI connector and once for VGA as well. My next suggestion would be to run a test on your PC using something like Memtest86 . You can download that at http://www.memtest86.com . This program checks your RAM for errors and since we are dealing with a Hardware Problem, not software, this may help reduce the number of things that we have to consider when trying to solve this problem.
Plugging HDMI into video card worked but also caused the video to be choppy. When I plugged HDMI into the motherboard (ASUS P5G41T-M LX) it worked but the screen was black.
