- HDMI® output issues
- Tips to fix these issues
The Role of the HDMI® output
HDMI® is an acronym for High Definition Multimedia Interface and is a standard that was launched back in 2003. It is said to be the next generation in audio visual cabling and newly built entertainment laptops are being made with the appropriate output. The big deal about HDMI® is that it is a connection that allows the transfer or HD video and audio through one cable. The fact is that HDMI® connection will allow you to stream High definition quality video from your laptop to another monitoring source without losing the quality of sound or video from the compression. You can expect to get a sharper and smoother image with less video noise as would have been expected otherwise. The sound will also be sharp and crisp and the good thing is that you do this with only one cable instead of a whole bunch of wires running around your computer area or entertainment centre.
HDMI® output issues
One major issues that people are having when attempting to use the HDMI® output on Acer® Extensa® is that there is no sound after connection or more commonly, the sound will only play through the computer and will not travel to the external device.
To resolve the problems try making some adjustments in the sound options on your computer. Go to the control panel and locate the sound options, it is usually represented by a speaker icon or something similar. Check to ensure that the sound default is set to HDMI®; this is usually the problem as most persons need to go in and make that adjustment manually. This should resolve your problem, but you will have a new problem if you forget to change it back when you are done using the HDMI®. The second remedy, if the first one does not work for you, or is already set to HDMI® will involve a bit of downloading. But this problem usually exists after you have made changes to the operating system, especially if you have upgraded from one to another. You may need to visit Intel online and search for the corresponding chipset along with all the associated HDMI® drivers. Download and install them and then restart your computer. After this you should no longer have a sound issue, but if you do, you can also upgrade the media player installed on your Acer® Extensa®.
