HDMI port failing? Causing BSOD?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'll try to make this quick.

I got a new monitor that supports HDMI (had only been using it previously for audio while using DVI for video). When using HDMI my monitor would go black for a second or so every now and then.

Switched to DVI and it works fine.

Just got a BSOD from ks.sys crashing...seems to be something audio related. When I restarted my PC games wouldn't run and would just crash or not respond. Turned off my PC and unplugged the HDMI cable.

Games work fine now.

My question is this...could an HDMI port be failing or become faulty? Could it just be driver related? I'll have to try some different drivers to find out but figured I'd ask first in case someone else has had the same issue.

Thanks!

My HP monitor acts funny with HDMI compared to other monitors.... if I have HDMI and VGA plugged in and monitor is on showing VGA, if I turn PC, XBOX 360, or anything else on the HDMI and try to manually switch the input, it doesn't see source/input or switches to some weird res. (not 720p, 1440x900 or anything like that). I have to turn monitor off and then turn back on to get it to connect to HDMI then it acts fine. doesn't have this problem when it's asleep and I wake it up with VGA and then switch to HDMI... so long story short... could be the monitor firmware or just physical limitations based on hardware/design.

also, some things are picky... make sure audio is unplugged if using HDMI audio. check audio drivers in device manager and also check that your not using a generic driver for the monitor. can also try different HDMI cord as well- especially if it's a cheap/no name brand...
