Ati radeon 3200 hdmi problem

Hey, hopefully I've come to the right place for answers about the problem I'm having with my HDMI setup to my LCD..I'm not too familiar with computer hardware stuff so I'll just tell you what I know about and maybe someone can offer me a solution..please bear with me.

I have a ATI radeon 3200 graphics card, and my PC has an HDMI out and I'm trying to connect it to my 32" Toshiba LCD. I get 'no video signal' on my screen when I switch to that input on my TV and I get no audio either.

When I tried to install the ATI HDMI driver that comes as part of my drivers CD, it tells me that 'no driver was suppored in this driver package'. I have the ASUS M3A78-EMH motherboard if that helps to answer the question. Anyone have any ideas for me?

I really want to ditch the stock subwoofer and speakers I have and get the audio from the TV and so far I've been out of luck. I'm currently using an DVI-HDMI connection. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Check in your manual. I have the gigabyte version of that board and I think you either have to set in the BIOS or with a physical switch to go from DVI to HDMI (you cannot output both at the same time).

Yep, I just checked your manual. Yours is a jumper DVI/HDMI switcher. If you can't find your manual, you can download it from Asus's site. Let me know if you run into any trouble while doing that

Looks like you set a BIOS setting too after switching the jumper.

Thanks a lot for looking into it for me. You've really been a big help. Like I said I don't know much at all about the finer points so this is big for me. Thanks again. I hope it works!

Yeah, I just remember that because it was weird. My Gigabyte could do the switch in BIOS, but even that was more effort than you would expect to just switch from DVI to HDMI in this day and age, but that is what is required.

So I tried out your suggestion to do the physical switch and in BIOS as well, and it worked! Very quick and simple. I can say goodbye to my stock speakers and now have the HDMI out connected with my LCD and surround hooked up for sound.
Thanks for your frustration with this problem is finally over.
