Hello there, I'm new to the forums so I hope this is the right section (my problem is with my graphics card). I recently built my own computer (it has a Radeon 280x graphics card) but when I plugged an HDMI cable into my graphics card's HDMI port and then into my TV's HDMI port it didn't work (my computer did not display on the TV). I'm not sure if there's something I'm missing or not doing to use my TV as a monitor, but I made sure the drivers for my Graphics Card are installed and up to date (as far as I can tell) and the graphics card is on and should be connected properly. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Don't know if this is relevant, but my monitor uses VGA so my friend and I are assuming it isn't running off of the Graphics card because when I've typically had several programs running, my computer starts beeping and freezes (and the mouse moves around in circles on the screen). I was hoping I could just use my TV as the monitor because of this. Thank you :)

Just to make sure, did you change the TV to the correct HDMI port? For instance, I use a TV, I plugged my card into HDMI port 2 but the TV was set to HDMI 1. That's the only thing I can think of..

I wish I had just made a simple error like that, but I checked all my HDMI ports and tried putting the cable in to different ones :/
