Onboard HDMI not posting

Last response: in Motherboards

I'm using Gigabyte H61M-S2H and i3 2130.

The onboard HDMI is not posting when hooked up single display to the TV, but when I use a monitor with VGA it does. However, being that it doesn't post via HDMI, as soon as windows logo kicks in, the display turns on and the pc works as normal. I also reset the bios to default settings and it didn't help. The board was updated to the latest bios. I thought I read somewhere not to update the bios to support 22mn CPU if you arent going to be using IB, is this true? Could that be causing a problem? This is super strange, the old HTPC would post on start up via HDMI, would a separate graphics card solve this?

try using the dvi port with an hdmi adapter like this

are you saying that hdmi works when booted into windows but not in bios/startup?

Yes, when using HDMI to the TV its totally blank trying to detect a signal until windows gets loaded, but when a monitor is on it with VGA it posts as normal and shows the posting screen and logo/boot menu and such. Any clue?

I gave the old HTPC away because I wanted to upgrade and this board had HDMI. The old one had a radeon 5450 which the HDMI to the TV was working just fine. I know its nothing to do with the TV, its got to be the board.

Some boards just default to VGA for post, and don't show it on hdmi. I don't remember the exact details, but I am sure you can google your question.... Just set the bios.and be done with it.

Only thing that would fix it is a bios update, IF.the manufacture fixed it
