Taken delivery of OMEN by HP 880-170na Gaming PC - GTX 1080 but the HDMI is not finding HP Screen

OMEN by HP 880-170na - GTX 1080
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just taken delivery of a OMEN by HP 880-170na Gaming PC - GTX 1080 (product: 2XC31EA#ABU) today for my son who is unwell and on Chemotherapy. He currently runs a HP Omen laptop and I wanted to really get him an awesome machine. We have plugged in the HDMI cable and the screen is not picking up the machine or the machine is not picking up the HP Screen. 


Any thoughts as to why?


The screen is an HP 22er 21.5-inch Display-United Kingdom (Product T3M72AA#ABU)

@Pureocean113, welcome to the forum.


Believe me when I say, you are not the first one to connect the monitor to the Integrated Video when a video card is installed.  I have done it myself in the past.


We wish your son all of the best and our prayers are with all of you!!
