So I recently built a new computer using an FX 6300 and a 7970. (lets not harp on about AMD please)
anyways, it turns on, fans are running, we're all good (fans on the cpu cooler, fans on the GPU, they're all good and running)
only problem is that when I connect it via HDMI to a TV, all I get is static on the screen. no splash screen, no bios, nothing, even when I insert a windows 8 disk.
so I'm just wondering what might be causing this. any suggestions?
More aboutstatic display
I would harp on your Processor choice before your graphics card choice :P I tease No both are valid solutions. When you say static can you be a bit more descriptive visually what is going on with the screen.
Sounds like it is not recognizing the TV as a valid display device. Just out of curiouity is the TV HDCP enabled. If not, I'm not sure how this would effect bios screen but would prevent display under starting with Vista OS.
