Radeon 5770 HDMI output doesn't work

Radeon 5770 HDMI output doesn't work
Views: 138
My machine is fitted with a Radeon 5770 video card. I normally connect to my monitor via the dvi output with no problems. However when I noticed that both the monitor and the video card have HDMI ports I tried connecting with a HDMI cable. The result was a "No Signal" error on the monitor and no video as a result.

XFX Radeon 5770 - Blurry

XFX Radeon 5770 - Blurry Icon
I recently built a new computer and am having an incredibly difficult time getting the graphics card (XFX Radeon 5770) to function properly with Windows 7, 64-bit (via HDMI).
Everything looks a bit blurry, especially the text. HDMI, DVI, and VGA connections all look bad. VGA looks a little better, but not as clear as HDMI wiith my Windows XP machine, and I also want to output sound.
A few notes:
* Running the the most recent ATI drivers (10.6)
* Pixel ratio set to 1:1 on the TV
* Using native resolution (1080p/60hz, also tried 59hz without improvement)
* Overscan set to 0%
* ClearType text has been adjusted
* Tried older drivers: 10.5, 10.4, 9.8, and 9.1 without success
My 5 year old Windows XP Dell, with a $40 Radeon 4350 card, has no problem producing crisp text via HDMI on this same HDTV. I tried the same 4350 card in my new Windows 7 computer and experienced the same problem as with the 5770.

Problem with Graphic Cards and Philips TVs

Problem with Graphic Cards and Philips TVs Icon
I have connected my computer to the Philips Aurea 42PFL9900D through HDMI.
Everything seems to work fine except 1 thing and that is that the screen blinks (black screen) for 1 second and then goes back to normal sometimes.
I thought that it might be a problem with the graphics card (gtx 260) but yesterday I bought a new graphics card, just for this bloody issue (HD Radeon 5770) and I still have the same issue.
Apparently something having to do with the "EDID" thing and there is a "solution" which I dont understand at all presented for nVidia cards and Im wondering if anyone with knowledge knows how to solve this very annoying issue for Radeon (5770) or come with some suggestions?

The onboard Radeon 4200 doesnt have the juice i need to play games. So i'm looking into getting the Radeon HD 5770. The only problem is i'm not sure if it will fit on my motherboard due to the Onboard video heatsink being right at the end of the PCI express slot.
Do yall think it will fit?

HDMI output to HD TV sound problem?

HDMI output to HD TV sound problem? Icon

I have laptop model HP 8530w. I got video as plug & play. But sound doesn't work until I restart. I have to keep HDMI cable connected while restarting. As soon as it works without any change right after the restart.

In control panel there is audio manger indie speaker, headphone, digital audio(S/PDIF). If I change to speaker as default it works fine in laptop speaker. But same way if I set digital audio it doesn't work.

It only works after restart. Also as soon as laptop goes to sleeping mode (hibernate), I have to restart to get the sound output by HDMI cable to HD tv.

How to get sound to hd tv by HDMI output without restart?


Need your opinion on video card upgrades

Need your opinion on video card upgrades Icon
Right now, I'm running a slightly dead Nvidia 8800GT, (the nvdlr driver has failed and restarted message). Looking at upgrades, I've been considering the Radeon HD 5770
(XFX Radeon HD 5770 850MHZ 1GB 4.8GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI HDMI Display Port DIRECTX11 PCI-E Video CARD, HD577AZNFC In Canada.)
and me being not so tech savy, I'd like some second opinions. I'm not looking to spend more then 400$ CAD however, so if you can recommend me something that falls within my budget, even better.
I'm on Windows 7 Pro 64x Intel Q6600 @ 2.40Ghz , I have a 650w power supply, 22inch monitor running at 1680x1050 and I primarily game.

Integrated Radeon HD 5770

Integrated Radeon HD 5770 Icon
ASUS had the Immensity concept motherboard on display and it was something that you could star at for hours as it was so unique. The Immensity uses an Intel X58 Express chipset and supports Intel LGA 1366 processors, but that isn't what makes the board special. It comes with an integrated Radeon HD 5770 graphics card and Lucid Hydra chip!
This is pretty awesome, but I wonder how much performance the 5770 would lose being integrated.

No sound from PC through TV

No sound from PC through TV Icon

My problem is I am trying to play sound from my PC through my TV.

My TV is a JVC DynaPIX HD, and my PC is a ACER Aspire, my graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 5500 Series. I have asked staff at a PC shop and I was told to use a HDMI cable which is what I bought, I have now connected the HDMI cable from the back of my pc into my TV but I am still getting no sound.

I have also tried on my volume control options from speakers to Digital Audio (HDMI) and Realtek HDMI Output but this is also to no avail.

Upgraded graphics from 8800 GT to Radeon 5770 Icon
I upgraded my video card from the old GeForce 8800 GT, 512 MB, to the ATI Radeon 5770, 1 GB.
Which I got to thinking.. is there a system out there that reports 7.9 in all categories?

Serious problem when switching Graphics Card

Serious problem when switching Graphics Card Icon
I have a gtx 260 graphics card and I just bought my little brother a computer that has a Radeon 5770.
Since Im in much need for the HDMI and some other reasons and he's not, I switched our graphics cards.
Everything seemed to work fine at first, I installed the drivers on his computer and the gtx 260 was working fine there. On other hand, when I tried to install the drivers (the screen was huge) on my computer with the Radeon 5770, the computer suddenly froze (it has never done this before).
When I turned it back on I heard a "peep peep peep" sound from the computer after a few seconds and there was no screen on the display. I could hear the harddrive working etc but no graphics.
I then switched places on the HD 5770 card (There were 2 blue contacts that looked the same) and the computer turned on. This time it worked for aprox 20 minutes (with new drivers installed) until the computer suddenly froze again. When I tried turning it back on, I got the beeping sound again and nothing showed up.
Both of the cards seem to work just fine on my brothers computer and I dont think I have any hardware issues on my either since its a pretty good computer that has never caused me any troubles.

5770 or GTX 260 - I think I know the answer

5770 or GTX 260 - I think I know the answer Icon
I have been looking at the GTX260 for a while now. I just went to buy one and these 5770 cards offer quite a bit more (HDMI, display port, DX-11 to name a few) for the same or less money. You video card experts tell me if I'm looking at this right. I don't know much about this matter.
Am I better off going with a 5770? I hear the drivers are not up to Nvidia's standards. I have LOVED Nvidia drivers over the years. Am I going to regret buying this card. (thinking about a Sapphire 5770, but it looks like they are all 1GB GDDR5 cards)
