Sound Card not detected when laptop boots up with external monitor (mini dp) connected - Alienware 15 R2 (4720HQ)

Q: Sound Card not detected when laptop boots up with external monitor (mini dp) connected - Alienware 15 R2 (4720HQ)

Hi everyone.
I have an Alienware 15 R2 (i7 4720HQ, 970M, 16GB, FHD) running windows 10.
I have set it up in desktop mode by connecting it to ASUS MG28UQ 4K monitor, mouse and keyboard. The monitor is connected through the laptop's mini dp port.
The problem is that when I boot up the laptop with the monitor connected, the laptop's internal sound card (SoundBlaster Redcon 3di) does not function, and is not available in the audio playback devices menu. The intel display audio works, though.
But when i shut down the laptop, disconnect the monitor, and then boot it back up, the sound card is detected and functional, and stays funtional even after i connect the monitor to laptop after it has booted. It keeps working until i reboot, after rebooting the same thing happens.
Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Things i tried:
reinstalled sound card driver
windows troubleshoot

Thanks in advance

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Sound Card not detected when laptop boots up with external monitor (mini dp) connected - Alienware 15 R2 (4720HQ)

First, make sure that the display audio device is not 'disabled' in Device Manager. When connected through HDMI this should be enabled. If it is disabled, try enabling it and see if that resolves the problem.

Second, I would suggest downloading the latest graphics drivers from Intel. This should also update the HDMI audio drivers, and may fix the problem. You may also need 4th Generation or later CPU graphics drivers. You may want to download Intel's driver updater, to automatically search for drivers.

DV4 2170US Laptop Goes through boot sequence, but screeen never comes on, or even flickers. It can't be the video crd, since an evternal HDMI monitor works just fine. I already tried removing the battery and cord, and draining residual power. The laptop crashed during a Microsoft update on Feb 10, 2012, and I am trying to resurrect it for an online course, since the specs are pretty respectable. Do I need to use my USB Flash Restore drive, reset the system (I backed everything up while connected to the external screen) and see if that fixes it?Is it just a video driver I am missing?Is the cable delivering data to the screen bad?The screen looks like it did when I first bought it, no chips, cracks or scratches, so I doubt it is physically damaged, but... HELP???!!!??

Hi @Serendipity6084, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums.  I have check on the HP Pavilion dv42170us Notebook having an issue with the LCD screen. Yes, you are right it is not the graphics card. This could be the inverter cable on the LCD screen. This is easier to replace and the least expensive. Here is a link to your service manual page 4-40 that shows parts and how to. Let me know how this goes. To show appreciation for my efforts kindly click the Thumbs Up below. Thanks.

My laptops screen resolution is 1366 x 768 and I plugged in a external monitor via hdmi and it's recommended resolution is 1920 x 1080. Everything on my monitor is too big for the screen and the taskbar is cut off along the bottom and when I go to full screen, stuff across the top is cut off.

Hi DaaamRon,

First, "Welcome to the Eight Forums." . . .

Second, a silly question. Have you gone into "Screen Resolution" to adjust the added screen? If not please give that a try.

I have an external 4k UHD monitor connected to my HP 8470p laptop. (I project content only on external monitor and my laptop screen is off)

The settings on Windows 7 have been configured to turn off the display after 1min (my laptop is still on and never shut off or put to sleep).

After a min of leaving the system idle, my monitor screen turns off and immediately within a few seconds turns on, a blank screen appears and displays my input source (in my case would blink "Display Port" a couple of times). Then a few seconds later turns off. This keeps looping forever and my monitor never sleeps.

Can anyone please help me resolve this?

Hey guys I've been a lurker on here for When HP Monitor Laptop External Connected Flickering to awhile External Monitor Flickering When Connected to HP Laptop now and finally decided to post I have had my HP Pavilion laptop Windows for - years now and just recently decided to hook it up to an external monitor to help with home productivity it's only a '' laptop so it was about time I took my old desktop Dell monitor and plugged it to the laptop via the monitor's VGA cable However recently the external monitor which I have designated as my main display started flickering for no particular reason I updated my driver and then googled this issue online The only real answer I have found is a grounding issue that does not pertain to me since my laptop continues to flicker even when it is not plugged in to battery power So I went out to Best Buy and bought a new VGA cable thinking that perhaps the cable was old and needed to be replaced Although the new cable initially seemed to fix the issue the external monitor still flickers at times sometimes every few minutes and at other times several times per minute Now I just purchased a new HP external monitor and although the flickering is less frequent it still continues I tried using a power surge and separating the power outlets for each plug i e the plug's of my laptop and the external monitor but that didn't seem to do the trick I also tried using an HDMI cable but to no avail Also looked at the refresh rate and I can't go below HZ for the external monitor so I seem to be fine there Both the laptop and external monitor are on recommend resolution settings x for the laptop and x for the external monitor It's funny because these new LED monitors are not supposed to flicker at all at least according to the guides That leaves me with two conclusions there have only been two constants through all these changes my laptop and the desk I am setting everything on The desk is not the most stable of desks and when I type fast on my laptop the desk can shake a little bit So I switched from the shaky desk to a steady table After all day yesterday of thinking the problem was fixed I go back to use my laptop external monitor today and what do you know more occasional flickering The only thing I can think of now is this is a problem related to my laptop I have literally exhausted every possible solution I know of to this point I'm very frustrated and have no idea what to do here

A:External Monitor Flickering When Connected to HP Laptop

What does no avail on the hdmi mean? It did not work or it still flickers? Do you have the laptop set to only put out to the external monitor or is the built-in display also being driven by the video card? In other words, how exactly do you have the display set up? I think you are saying you have both screen displaying an image? Are you extending to the external monitor or mirroring the built-in screen? I know the external is the primary monitor but how are you using the built-in display? I would think you would have the best luck setting it to display only to the external. The other constant in the equation is the electrical system. Have the monitors always been plugged into the same outlet? Monitors can be very sensitive to electrical anomalies. I see you use a "surge" (supressor) but the inexpensive ones do not really smooth out power; you have to use a ups/battery backup for that. Is the wall power outlet a 2-prong or a three prong? Have you tried moving the whole setup to another room or another location? Does the built-in screen ever flicker?

Hi,

I am new to this forum and I am having some trouble with my laptop. My laptop screen was cracked, and my future brother in law removed the screen completely, and then connected an external monitor. Everything was working fine until he performed a full system restore because of a corrupted file. Now the screen goes black on start up. In safe mode a pop up states that the installation cannot be completed in safe mode and automatically restarts, putting me back at square one. Is this issue fixable or should I just throw it away?

I have an acer laptop/now desktop running Windows Vista Home Premium if it helps.
 

A:External monitor connected to laptop goes black after system restore

I don't have much time but this will help others. When does the display go black? After the standard BIOS post information when it goes to Windows? When do you get the error message?

I assume this may be a refresh rate problem but there's not enough info to go on.

I recently installed XP on my HP laptop after I got tired of Vista. Everything seems to be working fine, except that I can't find the appropriate sound drivers because there is no sound card detected on the laptop. When I run dxdiag, it tells me to download the appropriate drivers, but I downloaded all the drivers on HP's website for my model of laptop (HP Pavillion 9640US) and I still don't have sound. I also don't even know what drivers I even need. Is there a way to find this out?

Hi

Basically i've just got my new laptop this week, had desktop pc's for nearly 10 yrs with internal sound card to power a 5.1 surround system

now ive ordered some krk rokik rp5 g2 monitor speakers but i want to be able to play music from laptop with media player etc, through the monitor speakers at good sound quality.

i no your can get cheap converters, but i imagine a usb sound card with rca outputs would be a lot better yes?

budget around ?70 or so. heard creative aint that good for music, more gaming, films, and been told m-audio or tascam are good for audio.

any1 else recommend decent soundcards etc

cheers

Actually, I would try the built in sound module (card) first before buying any add on sound unit. You will be surprised at the improvement in internal sound modules are compared to what they used to be.

Hey Jim101.

Sounds like the USB ports are somehow unable to recognize the drive properly. I would suggest connecting a flash drive to the same USB port and see if it gets recognized properly. If it does, try plugging the external hdd again.

Have you tried different USB ports? Just a thought.

Hi, Just installed a PCI (e x1) Wireless card and Windows Vista (64bit, all latest updates) will not detect it. I have tried it in 2 PCIe x1 slots (my mobo has 2 of these) and I get the same problem in both. I have the latest drivers for the device.

Interestingly, when the power is off and I plug the card in a light shows on the card. As soon as I turn my PC on, the light goes out and doesn't come back.

The wireless card is an ABIT WLP-01 card.

Is this a problem with the mobo/bios or with vista? I'm out of ideas so I'm hoping someone out there can shed some light.

A:black screen - Toshiba notebook - boots fine with external monitor

Tricky........

Are you sure that you have not accidently switched to mode where your laptop is only displaying to external monitor. you should find instructions in handbook. See if both external monitor and Main screen show up on display properties, make sure you know how to switch back to your external monitor if it does not automatically find and display on external monitor first.

if the default monitor montor setting is not the problem then your screen has failed and you will need to have your screen replaced. if you still have warranty then send it back to manufacturer or where you purchaced it from.

No warranty? then take to local computer shop, (shop around dont just go to PC World or major outlet)
Laptop displays are very expensive.

After reading other posts on here i checked my BIOS but its got no audio options

Hi guys,

I've been rearranging my workspace, and tried to connect my monitor (viewsonic 19in flat screen) with an extension svga cable. The machine powers on and I get a display, but the optimal viewing resolution (the monitor has a little popup message that says 1440x900) is not available as an option when I go into display settings.
When I look in device manager, the monitor is listed as a generic plug/play device. Do I need to manually install a driver from teh manufacturer? Previously, when just plugging the monitor directly to the machine with no cable the display looked fine, but now it doesn't look as good.

thanks,
bp
 

A:monitor detected as standard plug and play when connected with extension cable

You'd be better of with a long high quality cable then using an extension.

Yes, install the drivers from the manufactures website. These will help your GPU set the correct resolution.

I have a Dell XPS 13 (2016) with a Dell USB-C adapter. It will not detect my NEC LCD external monitor. I have tried a Dell USB-C adapter and a D-SUB cable to the monitor. I have also tried a Monoprice USB-C adapter with a Monoprice HDMI cable. Neither work. The monitor works fine with my Mac. I have told the computer to extend and duplicate the display using the Windows-P command. I have tried to update the driver for the monitor (I have NEC's driver), but it will not install because the monitor is not detected. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

A:NEC external monitor not detected

Have you tried restarting your computer (restart option from the power icon) with the USB adapter disconnected. Wait until the computer boots up and is stable, then connect the adapter without the monitor connected to it. Do you hear the sound that indicates a USB has been connected? Then look in device manager (right click on the start icon and device manager will be one of the options) and are there any devices with exclamation points or unknown devices?

If all that looks normal, then connect the monitor.

Also, with the adapter connected, look in device manager under display adapters. If you see Microsoft basic display listed, right click on it and attempt to update the driver while connected to the internet.

Well, running w7 ultimate on a Dell xps m1330 laptop. Everything looks good, but at work I am connected to a matrox triple-head-to-go device which is connected to (3) 22' monitors (3840x1280 resolution). Now when I connected it, ran the nvidia app, it found it and worked great.

Problem is I get home, no external connected, so running off the laptop with the basic resolution, I am trying to start apps (firefox, stickies, etc.) and I guess they were in other spots at work as I don't see them. I forced a close on FF, then re-started, rt clicking and maximizing which worked, but then other apps like stickies don't have that option. An alt-tab shows it running in the lower right (see screenshot), but there is absolutely no way of getting to the app! I did close the app completely and restarted, but it does restart in a location not on the screen.

Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the correct section for this question.

I currently work in a school where the teachers use laptops as the main teaching device. These devices while teaching are connected to an external TV/monitor via either hdmi or vga. By default when the device is connected the display settings change to extend the desktop over onto the external device so we will then manually change this to the duplicate mode however unfortunately the setting will eventually revert back to the extend mode.

Is there a way to force the mode into duplicate mode once an external monitor is detected by the laptop, perhaps using a registry setting?

The laptops are currently running Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit edition and the laptops are Lenovo E550's.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a monitor that I want to get connected to my HP 210 mini notebook. What will I do in order that my computer be able to detect the external monitor connected to it. I already installed the driver of the monitor.
 

A:Not Detecting the External Monitor Connected with a netbook

Connecting a monitor to a laptop should be simple. Most laptops automatically pick it up and ask if you want to start using it and how (Duplicate, Extend, Screen 1 OR Screen 2).

There are a few different ways to switch to it, on laptops there's usually a " FN" Key (If no "FN" Key, substitute with CTRL sometimes), and across the F1-F12 keys (sometimes the 1-9 keys..) there as symbols. You want to press the one that looks like a monitor and it should bring up an On Screen Display that shows you choices, and while holding the FN(Or CTRL) key and pressing it again it should change it to the other options as previously mentioned.

The other option depends on what operating system you have on the laptop. Win7, 8, Vista, XP? (I assume 7 or 8)

Anyways let me know if that helped narrow it down, otherwise we'll try the last step which is in basic terms: Control Panel > Display Settings.

Hi,

I have this weird problem whenever I connect my macbook pro to an external monitor. I'm running Windows 10 Pro. The problem occurs only when I close the laptop's lid. The mouse starts acting up, it applies clicks randomly. Perhaps even stranger is that it stops doing it after 5 to 10 minutes. On the other hand, if the lid is open and I work on both screens, then it acts normally.

Do you have any idea where to start from if I want to troubleshooting this problem?

A:Y700 - 15 ISK External Monitor not detected

Hi Saurabh,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
From your findings, it does look like there's a problem with the HDMI port or with the HDMI cable. 
 Things that you can try:
 

Try the HDMI cable on another PC and ensure its firmly connected to rule it out as the possible culprit.
Consider updating the Intel HD Graphics from the Intel Websiteand the Nvidia graphics from the Nvidia Website.

If the problem remains, last thing that you can do is to press the OneKey Recovery button to restore the unit to factory settings (ensure you backup important files). If problem remains after that then it's definitely a problem with the port
 
Let us know how you get on.
Regards,
Shashi

Hi all,
I have an Alienware m17 laptop that's a few years old (2.40 GHZ, 6MB, 750GB) and was looking to upgrade my graphics card for more gaming but my technical knowledge is really limited.
My current card is a 2GB AMD Radeon 6990m - is this any good? I've noticed a slight decline in the past few years. Does anyone have any recommendations? Can I get any card or are some not compatible? Lastly if I was to get one how difficult will it be to install myself?
Thanks in advance

A:Alienware laptop graphics card upgrade - help needed!

That card is now relatively low-end.  Upgrades for MXM3 cards do exist - the largest manufacturer is Clevo, which is the source for many gaming systems (Sager, Xotic PC, Falcon Northwest, Eurocom, etc.).  Expect around or over $1K for a gaming-level nVidia or AMD card -- they're not exactly cheap.

Hello all,

I usually had my Gateway NV53A (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series Graphics card) connected and I never had a problem. Recently I connected my Samsung to the monitor and again, had no problems. When I reconnect my gateway the PC detects the monitor but the monitor does not detect the PC. If I switch back to the Samsung it works fine. I have reset the TV to factory default the only way I know how (owners manual). I have unplugged the power cable to the TV for 10 min+. I have changed from a 14 pin VGA to a 15 pin. I have updated all drivers.

Im getting a message on my other computers monitor saying something like "No Input" all of a sudden this morning. It was in sleep mode since last night so when I brought it back up this morning that message came up even though it was fine last night. Is it possible that my video card burned out over night or something like that?
 

A:Monitor saying not connected to anything (video card?)

Could be. First of all, restart it, of course, if you haven't done that already. Try the monitor on a different computer and see what happens, or try a different monitor on the affected computer. If it appears to be the computer, reseat the video card and try it again. If it still does nothing, then the video card is probably bad. Another (somewhat unlikely) possibility is that the motherboard's PCI/AGP/PCIe slot is bad. A spare video card will confirm or eliminate that. It's definitely a hardware problem if you're not even seeing the boot screens.

When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.

You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

I am using the VGA port of a Dell 4-in-1 adapter (DA100) to connect my XPS 13 with touch screen display to a Dell U2412M monitor. The Intel HD Graphics Control Panel does not detect that there is an external monitor attached to the computer, i.e., the Graphics Options menu does not show the "Output To" option, the Graphics Properties' Display menu shows only "Built-in Display" under the Select Display tab, etc. The DA100 was installed remotely by Dell Support (after neither I nor they could find the driver on the Dell support website, as instructed to do by the software driver download guide that comes with the adapter), so I assume that it was installed correctly. Has anyone else experienced this problem and, hopefully, have a solution?

I have just installed a new mini card on my laptop to increase it's download capacity.

The problem I seem to be having is that my link speed seems to be intermitently jumping from my new speed to my old speed, and it also seems to be very unstable.

Is there anyway I can stop it from going back to my old link speed and stay on the new link speed?

A:Just installed new mini card on laptop....

Not sure if it is relavent but when I am not using the web it seems to be stuck on 72mbps, but when I use the internet it seemt to increase to over 100mbps.

Is this the way mini wifi cards work on laptops, are they normaly working at 72mbps and somehow when you need bandwidth they use more than one channel to get more bandwidth.

My old dell laptop L502x is a bit quirky and caused me to buy a desktop, however, i think it is still saveable. when i have it display to an external monitor via hdmi, it works 100% with no problems. however, when i use the monitor that is physically attached to the laptop, i will get a " A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" BSOD. from what i've gathered over numerous crashes, i believe its a problem with the integrated graphics in the processor, since they are not used when outputting via hdmi. i could be wrong tho, any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a dell laptop that has 1920x1080 resolution. However, i connect it to an external monitor that has 1920x1200 resolution. Basically almost everything i do is on my external monitor which acts as my main primary screen. Thus i do sometimes open some windows or drag a window or so to the other screen like youtube etc to the laptop screen.
My issue at the moment is everything is way too big on the laptop screen. I want to have 1920x1080 resolution but its way too big. I googled what is my resolution on it and it shows 1536 x 864. Can someone tell me how to change this to 1920x1080?
My external monitor which is my main monitor is fine at the moment with the 1920x1200.

Hi all,

I recently bought a relatively expensive sound card on Amazon and after the second boot of my PC with the card installed and working my on board LAN card decided to not work throwing error: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
The card IS enabled in the BIOS and I HAVE disabled the on-board sound card.

LAN Adapter Details:
-Make and Model: Realtek RTL8137/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
-Driver Provider: Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
-Driver Version: 6.112.123.2014
-Driver Date: 23/01/2014

A:Realtek network card not working with external sound card installed

This sounds like an IRQ problem, which is strange because modern PCs can usually resolve these conflicts automatically. But seeing that your system is a Pentium 4, maybe the motherboard is old enough to still be dealing with the issue.

One thing you could try is to perform a Clear CMOS procedure. This will force the motherboard to re-enumerate all the devices and will often solve IRQ conflicts. Note all your current BIOS settings
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v motherboard battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time in BIOS.
If that does not work then you could try to get the 2 cards to play nice together by installing them in different locations, if you have the extra slots.

Keep in mind that when removing any card it is important to remove it from Device Manager first. Remove it from Device Manager > shut down > then physically remove the card > then restart into Windows > then you can shut down perform the next procedure.

Sometimes you can simply install the newer card in another PCI/PCIe slot and that will resolve the conflict. (You must remove the device from Device Manager in order to change the slot)

Other times you might need to remove both cards, then install the newer card first and the older card second.

Let's see if any of that helps.

Hi,
I recently purchased a Belkin USB 2.0 7port hub for my laptop. I have a Creative Sound Blaster USB (about 2 years old) which works fine when plugged directly into my Belkin PCMIA USB 2.0 Card, but whenever I plug it into the hub it comes up with an error. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the card to no avail, but theres still two "USB Audio" icons with exclamation marks beside them in device manager. There is no power issue as the hub is self-powered. There is no resource tab in properties to check if there's a conflict. It could be my lack of processor speed, but it works fine when plugged directly into the laptop's USB or the PCMIA card. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Some USB devices will not work on a hub, some require a controller port.

It's to do with USB enumeration, unsure if this affects your USB audio card/USB hub but your description of the problem tends to fit.

take out one of the graphics cards and see if it works, your monitor only needs to detect the one card that it is plugged into so its not a crossfire problem

I have a lenovo g500s touch laptop that I am trying to get to work with an external graphics card setup, but when I turn the computer on, the screen remains blank. I can hear the fans spin up, and the external PSU and GPU fans spin up also, but the computer won't boot, not even BIOS.

Also, the computer works fine with the 6gb of ram as long as the gpu isnt plugged in. Here is my setup:

A:PCI Sound card not detected

mmino, welcome to the forums.

First make sure that the Via onboard is disabled in the bios. Next re-seat the card (maybe even try a different PCI slot) and try the driver again.

Greetings, My new sound card arrived this morning. I plugged it into a PCI slot on my motherboard running Windows 10 64 bit with 4GB RAM.
Booting up the sound card was not detected and so I placed the driver CD into the CD drive and it came up with...




What should I run to make the card operational?
Any thought gratefully received,

A:[HELP] No Sound Card Detected

Hi, Having a similar problem with a Medion laptop (Intel core duo 1.8GH and 3G ram) annd W7.
The Realtek sound card is showing in Device Manager and shown working correctly and indeed it plays CD or sound from streaming. However in Sound Control Panel the only device for playback is the speakers; and for recording only the microphone is listed. No mention of Realtek. Plugging a USB sound card in gives the same result; in Device mgr but only speakers and mike in Sound. This means I cannot do VOIP or record from streaming directly. I have to link the speaker output by 3.5 mm jacks to Mic input to record streaming. No good for VOIP. VOIP programs state no sound card found. Any ideas please?

First, let me say that I am a sound novice! I recently started a vinyl ripping project. My onboard sound does not support 24 bit depth recording at 96 kHz sampling rate, so I purchased an external USB card with phono preamp. It works just fine for my project. But as long as external sound card is plugged into a USB port, it takes control of all sound. I'd like to be able to toggle back to my onboard audio when I'm not ripping vinyl so I can listen through my system speakers. I have experimented with Windows audio controls, but have not found a way to do this. Is it possible?

A:Switching between onboard sound and external sound card

Did you check whether there was a switching option in the BIOS

Is this a laptop, a desktop, etc? If a laptop, which model?

What's your monitor?

Hi, I connect an HP v220 monitor to a Dell Latitude D620 laptop running Windows XP Professional SP2.

When I first connected the two devices together they set up automatically and I had correct resolution on the new monitor. Now approximately 6 months later the monitor has reverted to a maximum 1024x768 resolution and I am unable to adjust to the preferred 1680x1050.

I have updated the laptop video driver and have installed the HP monitor driver and still no luck.

Anyone have any other ideas? Many thanks.
 

A:Can't fix resolution on HP monitor connected to laptop

After uninstalling the monitor and all drivers associated with it I also upgraded the Bios driver. I now have access to higher resolution options. However I can't use the preferred ratio of 1680 x 1050. The closest I can get is 1280 X 768 which looks better than 1600 x 1200.

Anyone know how I can get the 1680 x 1050 option to come up?

A:Monitor Connected to Laptop not Behaving

How do you want it to "display properly"? Do you want identical images
on both monitors?

Hello,
I have a 14.1" Thinkpad T30 with a bad screen (burned out backlight bulb and wires). I just connected a new 19" wide screen monitor to use at my desk. The images of my XP Pro OS fit the screen perfectly. But I just realized all the circles look like ovals (the image is stretched left to right). How can I adjust the image so I will have true circles? I don't mind if I'm searching the web, but I can't create graphics with this distortion.

Is this adjustable from my computer -- I can't seem to adjust the size off the monitor.

Thanks!
JB

I have an HP 15-f233wm laptop connected via HDMI to an AOC 2476WM monitor.  I have set the monitor as the default playback device with the volume on the laptop and the volume on the monitor both set to max.  I can see the bars going up and down indicating that there should be something coming out but nothing is.  If I switch the laptop speakers back to the default playback device the sound plays just fine.  I have also tried using an audio cable to go from the headphone jack on the laptop to the monitor, no luck.  Both of these are off the shelf Wal Mart products.  Any help is appreciated.
