5850 HDMI output blurry Tags: Radeon Connection HDMI Graphics Last response: June 3, 2011 5:28 AM in Graphics & Displays Share shaegelin May 27, 2011 6:28:12 AM I just installed Sapphire Radeon HD5850 in my pc. The image through the DVI connection looked fine, but I lost my sound because it was hijacked by the built in HDMI sound chip on the 5850. I reconnected my monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 2494HM with integrated speakers) using an HDMI cable. This brought back sound, but the image is all screwed up - blurry and out of contrast. Can someone suggest how I can: 1)circumvent the 5850 audio driver and force the pc to use its built-in audio or 2) fix the image coming out of the hdmi port of the 5850. I don't know whether it is the card, the cable or the monitor, but the connection looked great using DVI (just no audio) Thanks, Steve More about : 5850 hdmi output blurry in_core May 27, 2011 6:05:38 PM 1.) it might be a problem with your hdmi cable 2.) check if you have set the correct refresh rate (ideally its 60Hz) when you connect with the hdmi shaegelin June 3, 2011 4:16:33 AM I ultimately ditched the HDMI cable and went back to the DVI. I was able to change a BIOS setting to allow the computer's onboard sound rather than defaulting to the ATI card. Now I have good quality video and the sound works. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
