connecting PC to AVR problem


hi folks i am trying to connect my pc(HP 5208uk) to my avr(onkyo 609). I had this connected no problem VGA to VGA. The problem is I have just installed a new video card in my PC (Gainward 1gb pci express) Now when I try to connect it to my onkyo again VGA to VGA I recieve no signal. I am awaiting a 5m HDMI to HDMI cable arriving which I will be using soon but hope it will connect as right now I am getting nothing VGA to VGA. is there something I am doing wrong or havengt done? just find it very weird as it was connecting fine using my old video card. any help would be appreciated

Re: connecting PC to AVR problem

Is that graphiccard VGA not working?If yes,then you have to select PCI graphic as primary boot in MB bios.
Secondly if you have also connected monitor to GC,then you need to config video out in control panal of graphic drivers.

Re: connecting PC to AVR problem

When you install a video card. the video output on the motherboard is disabled. You will be able to get video output only from the card. If you card has a VGA output, connect the cable to that.

Cheers

I am using the VGA on the card! not from the VGA connector of the onboard graphics but not getting a thing.
