Dual display on DZ68DB

Posted on 2012-08-29
Last Modified: 2012-09-01
I have an Intel DZ68DB motherboard with a Core 7 3770 processor and System 7 Pro.

No graphics cards. I'm using only the ports on the motherboard. My graphics are not very complex. Just numbers.

MB has display ports for DVI-I and HDMI.

DVI-I works fine. DVI-I works alone. DVI-I works when HDMI is plugged in.

Can't get the HDMI to work at all. Doesn't work alone. Doesn't work when both DVI-I and HDMI are plugged in.

My ultimate objective is to have both monitors working off the MB. But can't get the HDMI to work at all.

Suggestions? Thanks.

    Just wanted to make sure to ask that your chipset and video drivers along with the BIOS are up to date.
    If you haven't already please check the BIOS for possible video settings that may not be enabled.
    If the above are done and you still have no luck, you may be looking at a dead HDMI adapter.

    When booting, do you see the BIOS info on both the DVI and HDMI monitors?  If not, there is something wrong.  Try resetting your BIOS and see if that changes anything.  Also check if the HDMI monitor works by testing it on another source.
