HDMI not working - Driver 385.90
Hi All, I have a Dell Precision M6700 with nVidia K3000M. Running OS Win7 64 upodated to latest patches. I'm currently running the Driver 385.90. I'm quite sure that with previous driver 385.69 the HDMI was working OK. Today I needed for the time, after I installed the new driver few days ago, to connect an external monitor FullHD. I was surprised to find out that the HDMI was not working at all. Note: 1) Due to High Level CAD-CAM systems running on my Leptop, I disable the Interl Graphic Board. 2) Due to a problem with one of the applications I cannot get back to 385.69 driver. Please let me know if there is any solution for this problem. Many thanks. Paolo

The driver they have listed is the 327.62 <----You will not find that on the NVIDIA download site. Some of these Units, the Intel controls the external ports. Hence, ""I disabled the Intel Graphics Board"" and ""I was surprised to find out that the HDMI was not working at all."" seems like it may just be linked. Laptops are not designed to work forever and support generally stops after 6 months with an expectation of the unit being replaced in 2 years. WorkStation units aren't much different. There is a way to Bypass driver locked software. .

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

Just because you can, does not mean you should.

Thanks for the answer. When I went, few days ago on the nVideo Download area, the latest driver available for my Graphic Board was the 385.90. I expect than when I driver is released, and marked as supporting a specific graphic board model, I expect that it should work at best. Any solution? Please let me know. Many thanks. Paolo

[quote]I disable the Interl Graphic Board.[/quote] You must disable Optimus within the laptop's BIOS prior to doing so, else you will run into the issue you have described above. This; of course, "IF" you did not opt to have the IPS monitor installed on your laptop. If so then there will not be an option to disable the APU's outputs.

Hi Friends, I disabled Optimus option in the BIOS. But, still, the problem is there. Honestly, I always had Dell Laptops in the last years and I never had problems like this. I never had problems, installing a most updated nVidia Drivers. This is the first time I'm facing this kind of missing working HDMI port. I was not able to find in the BIOS any raw related to HDMI port. I'm planning to uninstall the driver from the Control Panel, than reboot, and then install again the same driver or maybe I will try to go back to previous 385.69 and see what happens. Many thanks for the helps. Best Regards

. Use this [url=https://www.wagnardsoft.com/DDU/download/DDU%20v17.0.7.5.exe]program[/url] to remove the old drivers. But earlier you stated that you ""disabled the Intel Graphics Board"" which I assume was in DEVICE MANAGER. Did you try re-enabling before going into the BIOS? .

Use this program to remove the old drivers.

Hi, I used the program to uninstall all old drivers. Then I installed again the 385.90. HDMI still not working but, now the Diplay Port is working just fine. So I have an alternative using an adaptor DP to HDMI. It could be that the HDMI port itself could be broken. Many thanks.

. Well I know that the 385.xx seires drivers for the GEFORCE series are a problem. They are not the same as the Quadro, but... :) You might try going back one more set. There are several between the 2 versions you are mentioning. Try using the 377.xx series .
