My monitor stopped working so I had to start using my HDTV instead. I was so happy that I bought a new video card with an HDMI plug, but for some reason EverQuest won’t load at all when I have it plugged into the TV. I have been searching my heart out on the internet trying to find out why but nobody seems to have the answer.
I remembered that my friend Ruth told me a few years ago that she got a HDTV and she had her computer plugged into it and was using that as her monitor. I sent her a message on Facebook asking her how she did that but it took her awhile to respond. Today she responded to me to tell me she can help. I spoke with her a few hours ago and she revealed the answer. Stop using the HDMI and plug the computer into the TV using the VGA cable instead. OF COURSE! Why didn’t I think of that?
After I got off the phone with her I decided that I couldn’t wait to try it. My computer was off so I had to wait for it to come on and it immediately defaulted to loading on the HDMI since I had them plugged into both. When windows was finished loading I switched it over to VGA with the video driver software. It didn’t look good at all so I had to do some adjusting to it so it looked normal and then I loaded EverQuest and to my surprise it loaded.
So there you have it, if you are using a HDTV using your HDMI plug, you won’t be able to play EverQuest until you plug it in with your VGA cable.

Heh, that’s good to know. That must be fantastic to play on a big HDTV!
I have no other choice, my monitor doesn’t turn on anymore and I’m broke lol.
On my tv, the HDMI input works just fine, but I need to switch the television input to HDMI1. Did you look for a similar solution? I mean, the tv is showing your desktop which is showing everquest, right? The tv does not directly procedd the eq signal – or does it?
I actually figured out that if I plugged the VGA cable from the computer into the tv I can play that way, but then I also found out that I can play it with the HDMI, but as long as the VGA is plugged in.
