I just built a new computer from the ground up. Hooked it up to my 42 inch LCD 1080p HDTV with an HDMI cable and turned it on. It shows the bootup screen and then it does show the Windows screen with that moving blue bar under the logo. Then the moniter goes black on my logon screen.
When I took the HDMI cable off and just hooked up a super VGA cable i can now use my tv as a moniter.
My system specs are below.
EVGA NVIDIA nForce 730a motherboard
AMD Phenom 2 Quad Core 3.0 GHz
4 Gig DDR2 memory
Antec 500 watt PSU
Should I not use the graphics cards that came inbedded on the motherboard? It has an HDMI, DVI and VGA outputs.
I think I might just need to tweak my card setting to recognise my tv as a moniter but I can't figure it out. Driving me nuts.
