My TV can't find a signal from the hdmi-cable from my PC, (Radeon r280x)

Jump to solution

Hey, so I just put up a TV in my room and thought I'd connect it to my PC. So I got an hdmi cable, plugged it in and nothing happens.The TV says "no signal" and my PC can't even find the TV.

At the moment I got 2 regular monitors using the 2 DVI ports (1 of them with vga->dvi adapter) and they are working just fine. Anyone have any ideas? I've tried finding the tv using both with the "regular" monitor settings in windows and with the radeon settings, none of them seems to recognize the TV.

specs:

Radeon r280x

intel i-7 4790k, 4.0GHz

12GB RAM

650W power supply

MSI Z97 gaming motherboard

Windows 10

Your 280x can only support a maximum of two passive display connections at any one time DVI/HDMI. To use your TV you will need to use a DisplayPort to HDMI Active Adapter.
