Hello saulx6;

Got a link to the eBay listing?
What parts did you get?

Where is the VGA card plugged in? To a motherboard VGA port or a video card VGA port?

Zotac GeForce GT 520 is the video card.

So you have the HDMI cable from the video card to the TV?

Try booting the PC in Safe Mode and see if the TV gets a signal.
Keep tapping the F8 key after you power on till you see the Advanced Options Menu.
Choose 'Safe Mode' and see what happens.

Lets talk about the TV.
Got a make and model? Is there a manual that says how to hook up to a PC?
The video out from the computer may not match up to what the TV can handle.
