Exclamation Cannot connect my Pc to my HDTV using a hdmi cable *need help badly*

Hello... I have bought a hdmi cable but when i plug it into my pc and then into my tv i get no signal. I have tryed a few things to resolve this but nothing to my knowledge works. My pc and tv and cable is capable of working. I am using a HDTV as my pc monitor using a dvi to hdmi cable (Dvi from pc hdmi into tv) which works fine and so does vga. Just hdmi is causing the problems. I am using a nividia graphics card. I dont know what is going wrong i really need help because i dont like using dvi to hdmi as it isn't the best quality. Thanks in advanced... ANY ADVICE AT ALL PLEASE SHARE

I have had this problem once before. The solution i found was since the hdmi connection was not automatically detected i had to go into the bios and enable hdmi. You might also want to try a different hdmi cable and see if this resolves your problem or try using your hdmi cable with another device. Also make sure that your drivers are up to date.

Have you messed with the NVidia driver software yet? There might be an option to turn on HDMI or make that your primary source for a display. There was at least for me.
