What does Xorg.0.log say? Share the whole thing via paste.debian.net (optionally
pastebinit via cmdline).

I suspect you're going to need specialized help due to some bug. Where to go I
can't be sure, because nothing you've written makes it completely unambiguous
whether the HDMI port is controlled by a proprietary NVidia driver or one of the
FOSS drivers. https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05567143 doesn't seem to
help either.

If it's only NVidia showing up in the log, you probably need to goto NVidia's
support forum. If Intel is showing up in the log, then I'd start with the
intel-gfx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list so that Intel's driver devs can
take a look. For the latter,
https://01.org/linuxgraphics/documentation/how-report-bugs has rather explicit
instructions to consider.
