First of all, my graphic card is GTX 645 2GB. It has one VGA, one Dual Link DVI-D and one HDMI port. Other specs information: http://www.acer.com.sg/ac/en/SG/content/model-datasheet...
(Don't confirm the graphic card from the datasheet)

I have followed the steps to think that it will manage somehow to fix my HDMI connection but it didn't work. http://acer-sg.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/271...

I have change the setting from VGA to HDMI in my Philips monitor. Then I plugged in my HDMI cable and it still didn't work. The error message shows ''Check the cable'' and i done checking 5 times to make sure it is connected from the graphic card HDMI port to my monitor.

So any ideas what's causing those problems? Before and after i plugged in my HDMI cable and updated my display driver, it is still not working. I have restarted my computer many times but it still won't give me any hints that it will make my monitor screen any miracles to work. Maybe i missed some of the guidance from many parts of troubleshooting websites. So please help me and i would be thankfully enough that i would also send your suggestions to my friends if they going to buy Acer desktops. Cheers! :D

Have you tried connecting the monitor, and then pressing Windows + P?
This brings up options to select how you want to use your second screen, and you can choose to duplicate or extend the display.

It still won't work. After I selected to use the second screen, it turns out it won't change from VGA to HDMI while both my VGA and HDMI still plugged in. When i done both the switching from VGA to HDMI from monitor setting and unplugging the VGA cable from the monitor and desktop to use the HDMI cable, it still shows ''Check the cable''.

Have you tested the HDMI cable with another screen / TV?
The cable may be faulty.
