Hi, I just built a new computer.
When starting it up for the first time connected to my TV via HDMI cord to the graphics card. it does not display.
I get a no signal message on the TV.
I have a vga cable but the gfx card does not have a vga output.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I;m using a HD 6870 card, AMD Phenom 2 955 quad, and a Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3 AMD 870 Socket AM3 motherboard no OS yet.
I have had similar experiences with VIZIO HDTVs. What brand/model are you hooking up to? I have found by experience that some video cards don't initialize the HDMI port until the OS/graphics driver has loaded.
The card has a DVI input but my TV doesn't.
A DVI to VGA cable or adapter should do the trick. At least to start with until you get your OS loaded. Afterwards you can see if HDMI works.
