HDMI output is not working DVI1 I think


HDMI output is not working I have tested the cable up to the HDMI to VGA converter because I only have one cable of those at the moment.

I am trying to use two monitor and the laptop screen all at the same time, the VGA works fine but the HDMI not output

If I type:
lspci | grep -i vga
I get:
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)
If I boot with the live CD ubuntu 12.04 it does not work either
If I type:
xrandr
I get:
Code:

   800x600        60.3  
   640x480        59.9  
DVI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
It should be DVI1, right?
Or should appear as HDMI1
I tried to detected by the Display system tool but it does not work.
If I do:
xrandr --output DVI1 --mode 1360x768_59.80
Code:
xrandr --output DVI1 --mode 1360x768_59.80
If I do:
Code:
cvt 1360 768 59.8
xrandr --output TV1 --off
xrandr --output DVI1 --mode 1360x768_59.80
I get:
Code:

xrandr: cannot find mode 1360x768_59.80
If I type:
aplay -l
I get:

Things have a look at the port on startup, and if there's nothing there, they forget about it.

Get a monitor & cable onto it. Try a reboot and the blue Fn+F<something> keys (If you have such). When it loads the kernel module for the video try again. When it starts X it might also come in.

I have a long argument with this box every time but it works.

I am waiting for a new cable with a DVI in stead to VGA to try it out. I will update later

What's the picture like?

1280x1024 is close to a square picture (5:4 aspect ratio)

1920x1080 is nearly twice as wide as high (16:9 aspect ratio)

The laptop screen work fine on 1289x800 and the monitor 1 on 1280 x 1024 looks ok too.

I am just trying it on 12.04 now I it does recognize it and display but the only way I get to work all of them is on the same picture in all of them, when I try to have a 3 screens desktop it just does not work.

Here is a error it display:

It said the have more than 30K characters so I have cut the pass 0 output
Its seen to work ok with two display but it just does work badly with 3 at the same time.

   1024x768       59.9  
   800x600        59.9
this is the fist time I can see actually working 3 at the same time, not as it should be actually displaying things OK.

getting back to your question the picture is fine to those resolutions because the screens are not the same.

Hope this help!

I try to force moving the 3er screen to right by:

xrandr --output HDMI1 --right-of LVDS1

I get:
cannot find crtc for output HDMI1

I start thinking this is not possible? How can I check that? Thanks

A lot of talk is inclined to go on between the X server and the various video bits as X boots. I get all that in /var/log/Xorg.0.log each time. It would be good to look at that and see what's going wrong in your case. We don;t have enough information.

I didn't even find out what shape your picture is.

Sorry I though I did answer you question about the picture, for example I am writing this in 12.04 Ubuntu at 1280x1024 left monitor and 1280 x 800 in the laptop screen. What do you actually mean shape of my picture? Sorry if this is a very straight forward question.

About the Xorg.0.log here its (This is for the 12.04):

I would like to add that I was trying to look for the display driver to my display chip set (Intel 965 GM) But I could not found it but I found an application (called Intel Driver Manager) which it does automatic (which I don't like) I really though I was going to see some improvement on display but I have to say that I cannot notice it. How do I how what has it done?

Code:
The code is quite long so I paste in here:
http://pastebin.com/QAzW1CzD
Now for the slackware Xorg is here:

Code:

You need to detail your machine if you want us to check up. I'm not aware of HDMI inputs on any laptop, or video card. It seems you have gone to three monitors without detailing to the box (or to us) much of what's going on. write some xorg.conf stuff into /etc/xorg.conf.d/ in a file named video.conf or anything.conf as long as it ends in .conf.

The rules are in 'man xorg.conf'
you can have as many card sections and video sections, and any number of monitor sections. If X finds them, it will use them. In your next post, state
1. Exactly what the equipment is
2. how you have it configured and what the results are.
3. What you are trying to achieve.

Also study how others have done it. I know you can specify "left" and "right" on different monitors, but "middle" I don't know about.

to clarify more the hardware I am using:
Its a Dell 1525 Laptop which it has it own screen LDVS tree video output (TV I am not interested on using it at the moment) VGA output which is VGA1 and HDMI output which is HDM1, the chip set is 965 GM from intel which as integrate video.

What I am trying to do:
Is connect one monitor on the left and one monitor on the right

I have looked around I cannot find anyone which has done it. I can use any one the 3 video output but two at time. The only time I have seen then all up is as mirror monitoring.

I guess next step is configure the xorg?

Yes, reading manm xorg.conf. When you find the options Left & Right, If there's no option for "Center" or "Middle", you can expect this to go poorly. Set up only one video mode on each (Maximum) and set a Virtual setting. Let's say you had 2 hdmi monitors: your virtual would be
Virtual 3840x1080

AFAIK (and I don't read much) there is no way to do 3 cards out of one GPU. If you haven't found that somewhere, learn from that. I imagine it will be internal screen and/or one other. I don't even know if you can get output from both auxiliary outputs together, and then I imagine you'll get the same thing from them.

I don't even know if you can get output from both auxiliary outputs together, and then I imagine you'll get the same thing from them.
Hi! I didn't have time to get back to this post earlier because I wanted to check datasheet for the chip-set and I am afraid I have run out into a hardware problem.

Before I get into details I would like to give a advice to people get to this stage, Do NOT buy the cheap HDMI-to-VGA on internet, I dont sure its faulty or it just does not work, I have got a HDMI to DVI cable and it works fine.

I looked at the datasheet and there in page 79 state there is only two pipe. Here is the datasheet

So I guess it only can display two outputs at once. I can turn on and off and display any of them at two at the time as max.

Its a shame I wanted to have tree independent monitor at once but I guess its not possible also I have not being able to make the display the same all at once at system level (only with life CD).

I will leave the post open for a bit to see if anyone has any comment!
