Hello, I just got a brand new PC today and i did not have a monitor for it so i looked online to see if i could use my TV and i saw that people were able to do this. So i tried to do it via HDMI and it did not work. now before i go further with this is it possible to connect a PC to a TV without it having a direct connection with a monitor and Windows 10 not installed yet, or do i need an HDMI to DVI cable to do this.

Moved from BSOD, crashes, etc. to 'External hardware'

Could you please post the make and model of this computer, and perhaps even the make and model of the TV ?


Generally speaking, if the computer has an HDMI 'out' and the TV an HDMI 'in' you just plug the one into the other using a cable of the appropriate length. You may also need to select the correct HDMI input on the TV if it has more than one HDMI input.
