Dell desktop insperion 660.. how do you connect the HDMI?
my buddy just got today.. a new Dell desktop Insperion 660 with Win8
we only got the desktop box.. no Monitor.
we already have a Samsung TV with VGA and HDMI connections.
so connecting the desktop to the TV via the VGA.. works fine.
when we connect it with the HDMI to the same TV it will not work.
the TV has 4 HDMI connections and have tried them each. we have also used that TV with other HDMI players just fine.
when we reboot the sys.. the "DELL" logo shows.. then nothing.. and "searching for signal" shows up.
tried different HDMI cables..no change
so, it must be a setting... but we are NOT used to the Windows8 system (new with the desktop)
anyone know what the setting is? where it is? or what we are doing wrong?
calling Dell support.. this thing has 1 yr warranty.. but they want us to pay $79 for the support call!!!!! NOT COOL!
