My receiver isn't showing computer display

by Rotty87 / January 17, 2010 3:05 PM PST

recently upgraded my computer. Previously, on Windows XP, I was able to connect a hdmi to dvi cable from my Nvidia 9800 GTX card to my Onkyo HT-RC160. It would work great, I could have dual display or clone display.

Now however I upgraded my machine to Windows 7 so I have had to change some hardware, including motherboard (EVGA E758-TR 3-Way SLI), but I have the same video card.
NVIDIA recognizes that another display is connected, I can change to dual, extend desktop, etc, but my receiver is just showing black now.

Usually on the other config, I would have to have receiver on and then turn on my computer and everything would work fine and show up fine. Now nothing works.

Anyone know what is wrong?

PS I also tried connecting it to my HDMI port on my TV but it doesn't detect it either. Could this be computer hardware that is not showing display on my TV or Receiver?
