So let's hear more about these monitors. Again, those VGA to HDMI things for less than 50 bucks do not work.
My father recently bought a cheap computer to use for basic stuff while in the living room on the TV screen. As per him, the man selling it showed him it working. They unplugged it from the wall there and then after shutting it down and followed through with their agreement. When he got home he used a brand new VGA cable and VGA to HDMI adapter to try and connect it to the tv. No Dice! he has since tried connecting it to several monitors all of which report "No Signal" so we know the wire is being read by the monitor but nothing is being sent from the computer. It powers on properly and sounds normal just no signal... Suggestions?
