I certainly hope I'm in the right place - noob here. If not, please direct me on the right path. I'm kinda new to this whole computer thing, but recently bought an Acer Aspire 5460 and connected it to my old Sceptre monitor via VGA. Everything fine. But I noticed the CPU has an HDMI connector, so I connected it to the DVI connection on the monitor. Correct cable (DVI/HDMI). But can't get a signal. What am I doing wrong? Any info greatly appreciated.
if i had the option, unless i was connecting to a TV, i would choose to use a DVI connection, it is essentially. they are both Digi Signal. all HDMI does is alow for audio to pass through in a usb style connector.
