hello, i have just built a new gaming rig. my old rig was still using a vga cable but this new one is using a dvi cable. i used an HDMI cord but i didn't get a signal on my tv, the GPU is running fine but i still can't get a signal from the hdmi cable. do i need to use a dvi cable before i use an HDMI cable ? also my specs are

A couple of things have you tried updated the drivers? How long have you had this issue?
Also can you explain what you are plugging into your monitor or tv? For example, graphics card HDMI to TV, or motherboard VGA to monitor
hears the issue, i can't do anything because i can't see anything on the screen so i can't update or do anything. and i just finished building this gaming rig an hour ago. so far everything works except i just can't see anything on screen. also i used both an HDMI cable and a VGA cable. i plugged the vga cable into my motherboard but no signal. so i did the same thing with the HDMI cable, i plugged it into the motherboard and still nothing. so then i plugged the hdmi cable into the graphics card and nothing happened. my graphics card dosen't support VGA cables. Only DVI cables because it supports more than 1 monitor. the graphics card is working fine but some reason it just won't show anything on my screen with the HDMI cable. do i need to use the DVI cable first then update my drivers for HDMI ?
