No video output from DVI or HDMI, VGA works fine.

I've got a strange problem. Yesterday morning I turned on my TV and had no video signal coming from my PC. I shut it down and powered my PC back on, and still no signal. I switched cables, still nothing. I checked the VGA connection to the PC connection on my TV, and it worked. At first I thought the HDMI controller on my TV was shot, but I hooked up another PC to it through HDMI, and it worked. Now I know the problem lies with my PC.

I have done all troubleshooting, and still can't get a video signal (other than through RGB connection). Through VGA I'm now seeing BOOTMGR MISSING, CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart. In the devices in bios I see all but one of my secondary hard drives. Even unplugging that drive, I still have the same problem. I have switched cards, and know that both cards work, as well as my LCD. I know that my cables work also. Any help would be great, I am lost now.


UPDATE: I'm now in windows on a VGA Connection. I should also mention that there is no video signal even in bios from HDMI or DVI. Going to reinstall drivers now.
UPDATE 2: I'm up and running on a DVI connection on my old 8800 GTS, but I get no signal until windows loads. No video signal from HDMI or DVI at bios.

ATI drivers may have updated through Windows update and might be buggy.. Try a rollback and/or a total driver uninstall.

Drivers didn't do it, on the 2nd DVI connection of an 8800 GTS right now. No video signal during bios but comes on when Windows 7 loads.

Could the card be physically damaged? It is an unusually hot summer. What temps does the card run at? I don't recall the 8800 series being very eco-friendly.

You replaced and "old GTS 8800" with a "new" 4670???
Excuse me, but I don't understand... :o  :) 

Besides this your problem seems odd.
It shouldn't be but anyway - may you check for some power issues? Like bad voltage on some lines.
May you try with another PSU?

Oh wait I misread what he did. He replaced the new 4670 with his old 8800. Haha forget what I said about the overheat thing. The 4670 got broke somehow. Sad times.
