Solved!

Desktop PC Start Up Monitor Issue

HP Recommended
HP PAVILLION 550-126
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Installed an HP Pavillion 550-126 PC with Windows 10.  I connected the monitor from my old Pavillion PC (2009) model which is an HP 2009m.  The HP 2009m monitor had a DVI coonection so I bought a DVI to HDMI adapter to connect to the new Pavillion 550-126.  During the startup the monitor does not show anything.  It takes a long time (5-10 minutes) before the log-on page shows up.  During the startup I have pressed the Source  button on the HP 2009m monitor and it comes up with a block that says "Check Vidoe Cable", the block comes on that that says DVI is Scanning, then changes to Active Digital.  I am trying to figure out if the issue is that fact I am using an DVI to HDMI Adapter or if there is something else going on - or do I need to get a monitor that  has a direct HDMI to HDMI connection.

 

Thanks for the help.

It is the adapter.

 

If you would like the video to appear quickly, you will need a more modern display.

 

Yours is an old school LCD type vice a modern LED type.

 

Fortunately, more modern displays generally have an HDMI input.
