dell monitor not recognizing pavillion tower

Pavillion p7-1410
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Aloha,

I have a dell monitor that has only HDMI and other inputs. I have it connected to a Pavillion desk top that only has dvi outputs. I am using a startech dvi-d to hdmi adapter. I have downloaded the driver for the dell monitor. If I just plug it in to the desktop it does not pick it up. If I hook the old monitor up to the other dvi input and have them both plugged in the dell does work. If I turn the computer off, again it wont pick up the dell monitor on start up.

Might it be the adapter?

The issue is the adapter.

 

There shouldn't be a need for a driver.

I took the whole system to a computer tech shop and they tried different adapters and evena different video card to no avail?
