    Problems with hdmi connection to LG wide monitor - not recognized

    My TP300LD stopped connecting through HDMI port to my SONY Smart TV model KDL 32WD600 a while ago, but it still connects wirelessly to that same TV.
    I just found out it doesn't recognize my new HDMI LG monitor model 25UM58 although the monitor is ok, and a Lenovo Thinkpad connects fine to it.
    The Asus TP300LD connects through HDMI to an old LG TV, so the HDMI port seems to be ok.
    I've tried everything I could think of (updated drivers and BIOS, changed hdmi cables, etc), but nothing seems to solve this problem.
    Can anyone help me, please?

    Hard to say. The problem with smart TVs is that they can receive updates which may change behavior. And presumably the newer monitor hasn't worked with the transformer at all.

    It could be the laptop is trying to use an unsupported mode. I would try setting something fairly low resolution like 1280x720 before connecting to see if that makes a difference.

    You may want to go into the Windows display settings and try to detect the display manually by clicking the button there.

    It could be the displays are trying to HDCP handshake and failing but don't display a message. That may not be something you can fix. Each HDMI device has its own HDCP ID. If a display doesn't like the ID of a source device or vice versa they will fail to handshake and you may get nothing or a degraded resolution.

    newer monitor hasn't worked with the transformer

    Thanks for your answer. Yes, you are right, the newer monitor hasn't worked with the transformer at all. I already tried several low resolutions (like 1280x720) before connecting and it didn't make any difference. I also tried to detect the display manually and no monitor is found. Since the transformer has no other port besides hdmi, I'm stuck, because I really need to connect to another display...

    It sounds like you have tried everything I can think of. I suppose you could try some sort of active HDMI switch/adapter/receiver to see if having an intermediate device in the link would make a difference but unless you already have something it's probably not worth the investment.

    Good idea! Haven't tried that yet. I do have a switch, buts it's a passive one. I've been thinking about buying an active switch to connect both TV Box and PS, so I'll give it a try. Thanks!
