U330 - Intel X4500MHD not recognizing external display

I have the U330 (win7 x86) fully updated and an LCD w/ max resolution of 1920x1080 and dvi/vga ports

The issue that I have is that when using the intel x4500mhd via the hdmi dvi cable, it does not recognize the monitor. It works if I use the ATI card, but it is louder than the Intel counterpart, so I would like to get use the Intel if possible. I tried rebooting, unplugging hdmi dvi cable, bu **bleep** doesn't work. The lcd is set at its native resolution/refresh rate.

 

Now, I thought that maybe each graphic card use a different port, intel=vga, ati=hdmi, and that's why i'm not seeing anything, but i'm just guessing Smiley Happy

 

Any help?

check bios and/or graphic drivers updates, if it's available, try to flash/update them first.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Both bios and ati/intel drivers are up-to-date, still no change.

maybe you are right about each graphic card uses a different port.

The cable works. I can hook any other devices (w/ hdmi) without issues.

My desktop (only dedicated graphic card), doesn't have that issue when connected to the same screen, neither my ps3 or my cable box. I tested them directly one-on-one (one input -> one output w/out any switch in-between)

 

I tested it with vga and it works, but I have no desire to use the vga port to output to my 1080p screen.
