Does this tv display a bios splash screen?
If so there should be some F key to allow entry to the bios.

You must get a signal to some monitor

Otherwise you can't do a thing.
You try a different cable and monitor.
At this point you don't know if the pc even functions.

Should work, but to be sure try a normal monitor also.

By the way, Windows 10 doesn't fit on a cd. It needs a dvd. And are you sure it's a bootable disc (try on another PC)?

I worry here about "Is this a good PC?"

Since it doesn't show on the TV I worry that there is something broken about the setup.

I see most have shared about this but if it doesn't show on a TV or monitor the PC needs repair.
