I have an old Orion TV which I would like to use as my monitor for the PC, the HDMI for some reason does not work and the only way to connect my PC to it is via RGB. However, this does not work. Similarly, I have another Hanns.G (Hanspree) monitor, which also does not seem to work via RGB. Both say something along the lines of 'No Signal Detected'.

My graphics card is a XFX Radeon 7770 and it only has a HDMI and DVI port both of which connect perfectly to a other TVs via HDMI and a different monitor via DVI.

But the question is why does the RGB not work? At first I assumed it was because it is the graphic card that allows for the signal to be sent, but my i5-3570k has Intel HD Graphics 4000.

So please can someone tell me how to make the RGB work? Do I need to change something in the settings?

Cheers for your time :D

You can't use integrated graphics (Intel HD 4000) and an add-on video card (Radeon 7770) at the same time.

So, you can only use the plugs on the Radeon 7770.

Anyways, I am guessing you mean the VGA plug when you refer to RGB.

* Check if your Radeon has a DVI-I plug

The DVI-I plug is basically a DVI plug, but it has the two pins above and two pins below that vertical line pin.
* If your plug has these 4 little pins, then you can use a DVI-I to VGA cable.

Note: Connecting monitors or TVs using VGA is generally a bad idea. The image quality is not as good....

* Does your TV work with HDMI if you use a cable box, xbox, PS3, or some other device? If so, your HDMI port is fine and you should focus on getting your computer to work with HDMI on the TV instead of VGA.
* You can also get a DVI-D to HDMI cable, if you want to try that.

My bad I did mean VGA :$.

I would much rather connect to the TV using HDMI, but the port does not seem to work for anything anymore (so no playing game consoles on it *boohoo*). The GPU does have DVI-I so I guess i'll just have to buy a DVI-I to VGA cable until I have enough money to buy a new monitor.
