VGA is fine, but who wants that? I tried plugging in the HDMI and it worked, for a second. Then didn't after I foolishly pressed the Input button on the monitor, upon which it went blank. Restarted with just HDMI plugged in, was fine through post and boot until it got to the windows login screen, whereupon it went blank again.

In short, it'll only work in VGA and it should be better than that. Help?

have you tried hitting the input button on the monitor again? If that doesnt do it, click the menu button, and go to the input section and manually select HDMI.

Updating the graphics card drivers. Using Win 7 and a Athlon II x2 215 processor, it's a relatively new Compaq Presario computer with an ASUS 210 silent aftermarket graphics card.

Thanks. Tried hitting it multiple times, and when it blacks out, it blacks out. Can't find in the graphics card settings (the NVIDIA ones) where to manually select HDMI

There are only VGA drivers to download, ugh. Is it a waste of time?

I was talking about the menu button on the monitor itself. The VGA drivers are the ones you want, but worse comes to worse just try the ones that came with. Also, what power supply do you have? is it the stock compaq PSU?

So with the VGA plugged in, as soon as I plug the HDMI in too, the monitor goes black. It's still on, of course, but I can't even hit the menu buttons on the monitor to select anything. I power cycle the monitor in this state and the Asus logo flashes, then goes black. As soon as I unplug the HDMI from the graphics card, it detects VGA, and works in that mode.

Thanks again. Yes, I found that option on the monitor's menu settings, but the problem continues as described above. As soon as I plug the HDMI cable in to the graphics card, it kills it.

And yes, it's the standard compaq power supply. Everything on it is stock minus the graphics card.

that may be your problem-that system only as a 250 watt MAX output PSU, that video card requires a minimum of a 300 watt PSU with 18 amps on the +12v rail. It may be close, open the side of your case, locate the PSU. There should be a box that says +12v under that box should be another box with a number with an "a" beside it (18a, 12a etc) what is that number?
