Just bought a straight new PC. Yestarday tried to connect to my old monitor, when I try connect it shows - no signal dected. I thought that it was hdmi cable problem, bought a new cable, still doesnt work. Then I tried it to connect to smart tv, still no signal. What to do?
May the Forums be with you! I understand that you are getting no signal when you connect your old display to your new computer. I am happy to assist you with this.
Is your new computer using an integrated graphics adapter, or was a discrete graphics adapter installed? If there is a discrete graphics adapter installed, are you connecting the old display to the video ports on that card, or to the ports that are built into the motherboard?
If a graphics adapter is installed, you should only use the graphics ports on that card. The ports associated with the integrated adapter and built into the motherboard will be disabled when a separate card is installed.
Please let me know whether that was the cause, and if connecting to the discrete card does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
