HDMI port inactive after Windows 10 Upgrade and AMD 15.200.1062.1002 driver

Discussion created by grimmsch on Aug 4, 2015

Hi everyone,

 

ever since my upgrade to Windows 10 and the subsequent update of my graphics driver I am no longer able to select the active graphics by hand. My notebook has onboard and dedicated graphics and up until now I was able to simply choose which of the two would be active by right-klicking the desktop and then choosing the graphics card. Using the new driver, I now have to specify which driver the system should use for what application, which is okay even though a massive pain in the a**. Unfortunately, my HDMI port on my notebook seems to be connected to my ATI mobility Radeom 5650 (I know, a bit older) rather than the main board or something (just a guess). This seems to mean, that it is inactive and I have no idea how to get it activated. Given that I work with this computer and a second screen , this is a massive nuisance and I would appreciate any help you can offer.

 

A few system details:

 

Acer Aspire 4820TG-5464G75Mnks

Intel i5 M460

ATI mobility Radeom 5650

4GB DDR3

Samsung SSD 840 Evo (added later)

 

Best,

 

G
