I have a Medion Akoya E6234 Laptop.. 2 years old.running Windows 10.

 

I use it to watch video and connect to my TV.

 

I cannot connect to any device now via HDMI..

 

Checked cables. 

 

HDMI does not show up in device manager.

 

Any ideas or is it just a case of a faulty HDMI port.

 

Thanks

Hello peter plus,

 

Could be a bad or disabled port, lets see if Speccy can tell us anything;

 

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here,  this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

Did you first notice the problem after upgrading to Windows 10.

 

Reason that I ask is because Speccy shows the following which suggests there could be a problem with the drivers;

 

Graphics
Generic PnP Monitor (1366x768@60Hz)
 
Intel HD Graphics (Unknown)
 
 

 

If the answer to the above question is yes;

 

Did you run the Medion System Check before upgrading to Windows 10 to see if there could be any potential problems such as this, System Check tool here

 

Have you tried updating the chipset and VGA drivers that are available from here

Problems started since installing Windows 10 but it has been fine for the most part.

Sometimes needed to restart before it would recognise the port.

No Should I now?

 

"Have you tried updating the chipset and VGA drivers that are available from here"

 

No

That type of behaviour would normally suggest a hardware problem as the same drivers would be being used before and after a restart unless any new drivers had been specifically downloaded and installed.

 

Not sure the tool will help now that you have already upgraded but running it would do no harm, do this and let us know the outcome before manually updating any drivers please.
