    You can also try to close the lid when you connected to HDMI.
    This way you force laptop to search for a monitor.
    Before doing that go to configuration/buttons behavior, to prevent laptop to go in sleepmode when closing the lid ''doing nothing when closing the lid"

    I have an AMD GPU driver version 15.200.1062.1004, driver date 2015-08-03. This should be it.
    and ATI HDMI device driver version 6.0.1.6650, driver date 2012-06-04 (that is a Realtek driver, not the one embedded by AMD in their driver pack) This one should be available at www.realtek.com under software/High definition audio codecs (can't put a direct link - click here, accept a disclaimer and confirm.)

    This setup works for me on Windows 7 64 bit. Also you might need to launch the Catalyst Control Center and force it to detect connected monitors. Sometimes that might not happen automatically.

    Thanx man, if the drivers don't work will try this too.



    Thank you very much mister,k i've been waiting for your reply specifically. All these years that i own this laptop your advice has always been spot on.

    To the subject, let me ask you this. Can i install these drivers on top of the ones i have? or should i uninstall the previous ones and then instal those?

    Should i download the Radeon Software Crimson Edition Beta togegther with the catalyst software suite? or only the latter one?

    the link for downloading in the realtek site does not work (there where it says global?)
    (EDIT: found them elsewhere. Can you please guide me installing both of these drivers?)

    @ypnos You can install drivers over the old ones. No need to uninstall the previous ones before.

    .

    Hello there again.

    Tried both, but none solved the problem. I even formatted to windows 10, but that did not make a diffirence either.

    Maybe you could suggest something else?

    @ypnos Can you verify that the HDMI cable is working correctly with some other device?

    Have same GPU driver as Downloads but,
    AMD h.d. audio device 7.12.0.7723
    Realtec h.d. audio dev 6.0.1.7770
    Win7 64 ultimate
    HD 5470 GPU
    BIOS 1.28 (but I think don't matter)

    Another thing to look at is some TV's have auto connect, disable it and choose port manually.

    The cable works fine, and all the ports are enabled.

    I'm thinking of reverting back to win 7 and download a driver from the acer website from 2009 or so

    It's not a way of finding a good driver, it must be conflict free.
    Yesterday I put mine on HDMI and even the BIOS booting is on the screen, so a standard driver is in the BIOS.
    I now you have 1.22 an I 1.28 so can anyone with 1.22 confirm that he have also the bootscreen on HDMI ?
