I recently bought a new monitor for my ACer Aspire M3640 desktop PC which has an HDMI output. When Try to connect the new monitor to the HDMI lead I get "No signal". I am using the monitor on the analog D Sub connection fine but I would like to use the HDMI if possible. The HDMI out put is not on the Video Card but seems to be on the motherboard.

Any ideas please.

The HDMI out on the motherboard is probably for sound. To get HDMI video, you need to use a DVI -> HDMI converter for your Graphics Card.

Thanks! I've placed an online order for a DVI to HDMI cable this afternoon. :)

Actually I have found on some MB's that when it comes to integrated HDMI using nVidia chips you have to either enable it through physical switches in between the CPU and HDMI-port, or enter the BIOS setup utility and enable it there. Then again my experience is largely based on home-brew/small OEM setups and not pre-built ones like Acer.
