View Full Version : [ubuntu] ATI Radeon x1400 DVI to HDMI

January 21st, 2009, 02:19 AM

I'm tryin to connect my laptop to a lcd tv using DVI-D to HDMI cable. After I connected the cable, I changed the TV setting to HDMI input. But it says 'No Signal'. I tried searchin this site, but it's a bit confusing to me. I'm new to this, so could anyone help me get this working?

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 with ATI Radeon x1400 card.

Thanx in advance,

I have never heard of such a converter, but in my experience with HDMI, I would try changing the resolution, refresh rate, etc.

Hi. When is the signal supposed to come on tv? Is it usually as soon as I connect the cable or should I enable something ?

I realize this is an old post, but did you try pressing Fn f8 to switch to lcd?
I'm trying to fi9nd out if I can get sound out of the x1400 over the dvi to hdmi. I can on my pc, but not sure if the e1705 supports this. The e1705 so far has been able to run my 42" lcd at 1080 with no problems.
