HDMI is not working on your laptop? Fix it with these steps

As you will see, fixing this Windows 10 issue is quite easy as you only have to apply a few steps.

Of course, we will detail more methods, so that anyone can find a compatible troubleshooting solution within this step-by-step guide.

The HDMI port is used for connecting your Windows 10 based device with other gadgets such as a monitor, TV, Home Theatre, and so on.

If your HDMI port worked perfectly on your previous Windows version but after applying the Windows 10 update you can’t connect your device through the HDMI port, use the guidelines below.

How to fix Windows 10 HDMI not working?

1. Uninstall your Graphic Card drivers

  1. Right-click the Start button and select Device Manager.
  2. Click on the Display Adapters section to expand it.
  3. Right-click the adapter and select Uninstall device.

The first thing to do when dealing with such problems is to uninstall the graphic drivers from your Windows 10 device. Follow the steps above to get it done.

Once you restart your PC, the system will automatically install a default driver.

2. Install the graphics card manually

The default driver is not the ideal way of using your graphics. So, after uninstalling the driver, go to your manufacturer official website (Acer, Dell, HP, and so on) and don’t download the driver from the graphic card maker’s website.

So once on the manufacturer website, search for your graphic card for the version of Windows you’re running and install the same on your computer in compatibility mode. 

That’s it; now your HDMI port should properly work on Windows 10. Don’t hesitate and share your experience with us and with our readers by using the comments field from below.

3. Install the drivers automatically

  1. Start Device Manager by right-clicking the Start button and selecting the app from the list.
  2. Expand the Display adapters category.
  3. Right-click the display adapter and select Update driver.
  4. Click on the first option, to search automatically for drivers.

By doing so, the system will automatically look for the correct drivers online for your graphics adapter.
