HP Pavilion Desktop

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion XA0024
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Thank you for any help.

I just bought this HP Pavilion Desktop.

I inserted the USB transceiver for the wireless mouse and keyboard in the computer. When I turn it on I get this message "Check HDMI-IN Cable", and then the screen goes blank.  I have tried disconnecting everything, taking out the USB, and powering for 5 seconds, but that didn't work.  

Do I need an HDMI cable? What kind?  I have wireless Internet.

Thank you

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Are you connecting your all in one to an external via HDMI cable? If you're connecting your computer to an external monitor then you need an HDMI cable.

While you respond to that, let's try these steps:

  • Step 1: Remove discs and devices
  • Step 2: Perform a hard reset
  • Step 3: Run hardware diagnostic tests
  • Step 4: Refresh or reset your PC. Click here: to complete the troubleshooting steps. By the end of the article, you will be able to fix the issue.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
