This is a SUPER dumb question but I want to make sure everything is working normally.
So I just put together a fresh new build that includes the GTX 670. It's currently hooked up via HDMI to my Plasma TV. NOTHING is loaded on the PC. I turned the switch on, hoping to see the POST and be able to play with the BIOS. However, nothing comes up except the blue standby screen on my Plasma.
Am I correct to understand that I'll need a computer monitor in the interim since the Plasma can't display low resolutions (either because it can't handle those resolutions or because of HDCP/HDMI handshake issues)?
Or perhaps I have to go get a DVi-to-VGA adapter and an old school VGA cable to hook up to the TV - at least during this initial setup phase?
Sorry again...haven't built a PC in almost a decade!
Hmm... the HDMI is connected to my Receiver. The same port/plug was previously connected to my Xbox 360.
Is it strange that I didn't get a video signal via HDMI? I could see the GTX 670 fan going, so clearly it's getting power from the 2 PCI-E 6-pin connectors. Again, there's no OS or anything on there so I don't know if that plays a factor.
I actually don't own a traditional computer monitor...all laptops/tablets in the house. However, I think my Plasma TV (Panasonic GT25) has a VGA connector in the back. I will try that using the DVI-to-VGA adapter tonight... but please let me know if you still think that no image via HDMI is strange.
