I literally just unpacked a new Lenovo desktop that came in the mail today. It has an HDMI on the back so I know it supports it. I'm plugging it into the hdmi port on my Vizio HDMI tv.

I used to do this with my laptop and my tv picked it up fine.

Since my desktop is new, im sure I have to run through settings and **** before I can change how I want to view my display. So basically im getting a "no signal" on my tv while my PC is on plugged into the TV. My pc is running lights lit up and keyboard lights on so I know its functioning too.

Is there a hot key on the keyboard I can press to change the output display to HDMI or something along those lines? Or is there anything I can do other then get a monitor with vga?

Simple question, but I have to ask... Is your TV set to pick up the right input (HDMI from the PC)?

Is this using an onboard video adapter or separate graphics card to go to a regular monitor? Either way you're going to need to download the latest graphics drivers for your machine and go through your display settings on the PC (Windows 7? Rightclick desktop > Screen resolution).
