I don't know about Mint specifically, but most Linuxes these days use

describe. The fix for me has been to run pavucontrol then click the
Configuration tab and then choose a Profile that lists the HDMI output.
Try a few different Profiles and maybe one will work.

That might be indeed the case but I believe we're talking about a (software) driver issue here, which used to be common back in the day and less common now but the truth of the matter is that " HDMI " implementation is a mess. In this case, the computer manufacturer (DELL) messed with it. On purpose.

Is your system a "T" 3500? Because, if by any chance, it's on AMD/ATI ("Radeon") graphics (however you said was "Xeon" processor, right?), then remedy for that would be to look for the " official " (proprietary) video driver for your distro. Done.

Please clarify your hardware profile then. Hope it helps! フェルナンド
