    Default windows 8 hdmi output not working when connecting to a monitor or tv solved!!!!

    after a lot of messing around and rolling back drivers and installing new drivers from microsoft and asus (I have a zen ultrabook ), I finally stumbled apon the fix for getting the hdmi output to work!!
    the trick is to go to the settings (right flick on the mouse pad) choose devices the go to "second screen" and then while plugging in the hdmi cable at the same time with the mouse choose the connection you want, either duplicate, second screen only, extend or pc screen only.
    Apparently the connection is recognized when you click on a choice WHILE plugging in the hdmi cable. I've had 100% success using this method while it would only connect one time out of 20 when just randomly plugging in the hdmi cable. Very strange but it works. Have not found this work around or any other solution for that matter anywhere else. Don't post a lot, but noticed that a lot of people were having problems with this connection. Now if only I could figure out why I have no sound on my youtube videos when going back into my browser having been listening through my bluetooth speakers before and then having them off when reviewing youtube videos. I have sound if I turn the bluetooth speaker back on, but nothing when I turn them off!!?? The only solution I've found is to do a reboot, or reload chrome in desktop version or vice versa relaunch google chrome in windows 8 mode. That will usually get my sound back in youtube videos over my asus zen ultrabooks internal speakers.
    I'm sure there are lots of other bugs to be found, but so far these have been really "bugging" me

    Regarding sound, could be chrome. May also be the case that Control Panel > sound > toggle default, ending where desired, as that usually solves anything similar for me. Can't say I have had that exact issue, though.

    Thank you for that. I have a similar issue, which I hope you may have advice for. Apart from it not connecting sometimes, even after it connects, my TV randomly stops receiving a signal from my computer. Sometimes unplugging the HDMI cable at one end and reconnecting it helps, but often not. If I leave it, it sometimes comes back 20 minutes later. I'm so fed up with it, I've switched to using a VGA connection, but it seems stupid when I bought an HDMI TV to use with my laptop.

    I have a MSI GT70 Dragon Edition. HDMI connection WAS working perfectly. I connected pc to AVR and had no problem. But, one day it stopped working. HDMI led is switchin on when i plug hdmi cable in on AVR, but no sound, no picture on tv. Updated all drivers but nothing changed. I also tried other hdmi inputs on AVR and also connected pc to tv directly and tried all hdmi inputs on tv too.... Not working. Can't use my sound system and can't watch movies on tv ( i don't watch tv channels, mostly use it to watch movies ). Can't find why and can't solve the problem but i have a real problem...
