Well, here we go:
I recently helped my cousin purchase a new PC from a friend of mine. This PC has a discrete graphics card, but we had to use the integrated until we picked up a VGA to DVI adapter. Now here's the annoying part. As soon as we picked up the adapter and plugged everything in to the video card, nothing happened; standard video issue beep code on POST. So, we tried plugging it in the way we had it before (with just the VGA cable straight to the motherboard); nothing again. The next thing we tried was plugging it in to one of his HDTVs using an HDMI cable straight into the video card; works flawlessly, but this setup is not ideal.
Any ideas what this could be?
Hardware is as follows:
Motherboard: MSI ms-7596 (v.1.3)
Video Card: Radeon HD 5670
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250
Not sure if any of the other hardware is of any consequence, but just ask if you need it.
