320-15IKB (Ideapad) not switching to HDMI

2020-11-14, 19:12 PM

Introduction: 

Hi, I'm new here.

 

I have a problem with external display output.

Please help, I need to get to the BIOS settings, I don't want to buy a new built-in 15.6 monitor.

 

I will be grateful to anyone who can help.

 

Goal:

Permanently divert the output to the HDMI (external display).

  1.  

Problem:

The LCD display is broken.

I've disconnected the broken LCD of Lenovo Ideapad 320 from the motherboard, but still, the HDMI won't display unless the Windows 10 is loaded.

 

Before of this incident, I accidentally set something in the BIOS. 

I highly suspect that action was the main reason why the motherboard is not allowing the external display on displaying BIOS anymore.

 

Things I've tried but still nothing works:

1. Disconnected the CMOS battery.

2. Disconnected the Li-Ion battery.

3. Disconnected the keyboard.

4. Disconnected the HDD/ODD

5. Disconnected the built-in monitor (worked before the incident).

Hello,

 

Regarding BIOS settings, the best thing to do is to find the toggle "reset to factory defaults"  acrivate that nad save and exit.  On my BIOS this toggle is on the same page as the "save changes and exit" toggle.

 

Check with Lenovo Technical support for a way to disable the normal screen on your laptop.  I always have to use the F10 button to cycle through too many options for multiscreens.

 

Good Luck,

Usedtoberich
