I am trying to do the following connection but I intermittently get "No Signal, check cable" on my monitor. I don't even see the BIOS screen on my PC when it boots if the signal is not working.
From PC ->
SPARKLE GeForce 8400 GS 256MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI-E x16 HDCP Ready
DVI out to ->
KINGWIN 6 ft. HDMI Male to DVI Male Extension Cable Model HDMIC-02
to HDMI in on ->
Hanns-G HG-216DPB 21.6" Widescreen LCD Monitor
If I unplug both the PC and the Monitor for a while, then turn on the PC first then the monitor I can sometimes get the Monitor to have signal just like normal. Resolution and everything is fine in my OS as well. Cycling the power like this is not 100% repeatable, sometimes it doesn't work.
However, if I shut down the computer then start it back up without unplugging everything, the monitor will not even display the bios info as the PC boots. The monitor just displays "No signal, check signal cable" and it continues to display this even when the PC gets to the OS.
Both the monitor and the video card are HDCP enabled, allegedly.
Using VGA -> VGA works as normal but does not get me the resolution I want, because it is not DVI/HDMI.
I've looked into this problem on several forums and have not been able to find anybody with the same issue.
Thanks in advance for your time.
