LIFEBOOK AH531 - HDMI OUTPUT NOT WORKING

Postby appleberry » Sun Jan 08, 2012 8:58

Hi All
i need some assistance with my Fujitsu laptop.
This is the second LIFEBOOK within 3 weeks to give me issues as the first one could not read any Disc's at all (not even the recovery disc) so it was replaced with the current and it worked fine unti yesterday when i wanted to connect it via HDMI to a Monitor. I tried different cables in different ports with no luck then when i restarted it was extremely slow and i could only get anything done if i started in SAFE MODE. I tried using the repair mode and the laptop started quickly and worked but the HDMI still was not connecting so i reinstalled the driver and it worked but when i restarted it it stopped working. Even after downloading a older driver and reistalling the operating system it does not work, for some reason after restarting it stops.
I had another Fujitsu for more than a year and no issues and i know i am not doing anything wrong or download unneccessary software that would cause problems.
(Tried google search for a resolution and nothing)
Your help will be much appreciated.

Regards

Shaik

If there are three notebooks with the same "issue" there seems to be a problem with the handling. Please descripe how you connect your device with the LCD and what steps you do.

Connect the HDMI cable to the notebook and to the LCD
Then press the Windows-Key + P and then choose the mode you need.

For examle extended view.

i know how to handle a laptop.
There is nothing i am doing wrong as i tested 3 different cables in 3 different monitors so there is definitely an issue with this Batch if Laptops. I updated the driver last night and still not working.
The only time it works is if i leave the cable in and reinstall the driver then i can press the windows button + P and whatever option i select will work but once the laptop is restart it does not work. I tried restarting with and without the cable.

Do you have the AH531 with Intel graphic or the AH531/GFO with nvidia?
Which driver version is installed?
