HDMI input not registering, but DVI is?

I hooked my new custom built PC up to my new LED monitor via HDMI and the monitor scanned for a valid connection, but said no signal. I had all of my parts hooked up correctly. I changed the input method on the monitor to HDMI and still no signal for HDMI. Shortly after, I tried the DVI cable and it worked and I was in my BIOS screen, but when I try hooking up the monitor via HDMI, it doesn't work. I have heard a variety of troubleshooting response. The one that I keep coming back to is that I need to change some settings in order to enable a valid HDMI connection. Is this the answer? What else could be obstructing the HDMI from getting signal?

    I have a Radeon 7850. Yes, both the HDMI and DVI ports are located on the card.
  3. Have you tried swapping HDMI cables?

    Yes
  5. The only thing to do now is to test the HDMI connection on your monitor and your system. If you have a blu-ray/DVD player try plugging it into your monitor. Likewise if you have a HDTV, try plugging your system into that.
