Hi,

I hope somebody can help me to solve my problem.

I just assembled my new PC. All the components are new. The PC is suppose to work with a HDTV Samsung UE40EH5000 through an HDMI cable.

When I connect the PC to the TV in the TV I get a message "No Signal". I tried to use the HDMI cable (TV source set to HDMI/DVI 1 HDMI 2) and also the same cable with an DVI adaptor (TV source set to HDMI/DVI) connected to the DVI in the PC but I always get a "No Signal" error and I can't see anything.

Here is my configuration.

Intel MB DH77DF
Intel Core i5 3570K
Corsair 4GB RAM DDR3 Vengeance 1600MH
SSD OCZ Agility 120 GB
Case CiT MTX-003B
HDMI cable 2M HDMI TO HDMI V1.3

The PC and HDMI cable are working perfectly because I tried them with a PC monitor of a friend. That mean the PC boot perfectly and that video card and cable works.
I tried to boot when the TV is on and the source is set to the right HDMI port and I get a "Cable not connected" to "No signal" when the PC is on. Also I tied to turn on the TV after boot.
The TV is working fine, I tested with a friend computer using the same HDMI cable and it works.

Because the PC is new there is no OS installed jet, so I can't change the resolution, refresh rate or make change to the bios because at the moment I don't have any other monitor.

Please help me to find a solution.

Thanks

If your computer has no OS installed , what are you thinking that your going to get for a picture , the boot sequence ?
In the boot process the HDMI port may not be enabled.
Do you have a DVI cable that you can borrow to try ?

Yes, I thought I could get the boot sequence.
I got an USB key with ubuntu. I tried to boot with it connected but I'm not sure if the bios is booting ubuntu because of course I can't get the signal in the TV. I have to say also that at the boot the USB is blinking for almost a minute, that might mean it's booting the USB but I'm not sure.

As I said before I got an HDMI to DVI adaptor that I conect to the MB and then with the HDMI cable to the TV but nothing changed.

I confirm the HDMI door is enabled on boot because has been used during the boot in a PC monitor of a friend.

So you have connected your friends Pc monitor to your computer and you can use the computer in a normal way and get a display to come up on the screen?

If you haven't done that then it should be the next step because that would verify if the onboard intergrated graphics is working on the motherboard. There's only so many things it could be and you have to eliminate each one to come up with the solution.

Verify that the tv/monitor that your using is working.
Veritf that the cable or cables that you have work.
Verify that you are getting signal from the motherboards video ports.

Untill you do each one of these , and I'm sure that you have done some, you will just be left guessing as to what it could be.

Done. Tested Samsung HDTV with friend laptop. It worked.
inzone said:

Done. When tested PC with friend monitor I used my HDMI cable with the DVI adaptor. Also when I used the laptop I used the same HDMI cable. In both cases it worked.

Done. Connected PC with Monitor of a friend using the DVI port. It worked.


All this tests show that TV, PC and cable are working but doesn't work when used together.

A no sense isn't it?
January 22, 2013 6:55:58 PM

I will have to say that this does make no sense and it has to be something that being missed. Without being there I can't say what it might be but for now I don't have anything that is any different from what's been done.
January 25, 2013 2:46:44 PM

Do you think there is any possibility that the bios is not set to work with the TV but it's ok to work with a monitor?

What can be the difference between a TV and a monitor?

I been able to install ubuntu on the hard disk with another PC. After I reconnected the disk to the PC and through SSH I been able to access the computer from remote.

Trying to start and restart Xorg I been able make the TV work but the video is flickering and go off randomly.

I run the command xrand I got "Can't open display". That is quite strange because a display is connected. It should show HDMI1 at least.

Also, when I start Xorg I got this message "Fatal server error: no screens found".

Solved. I bought a new HDMI cable of better quality. The preview one was a really bad quality one, really cheep.
