I have recently upgraded my own PC, and used some components to u/g my youngest grandson's machine, in the form of my Hannspree 19" monitor, a Core 2 6600, a Gigabyte ATI 5450 card and a RAM upgrade. His PC is Win XP and is part of a (2x PC and 1x laptop) wireless network. Signals are all full strength from the TP-Link 300 Mbps Router, with a compatible TP-L Range extender.
He also has a 60GB PS3 and plays games on both, ( I have never had much interest in Gaming, but appreciate that computing is a broad church!)The games on his PC are low-level and do not overstretch his 5450. The monitor is 4 years old but has worked perfectly for me in all that time, and still does when connected to his PC in DVI.
However, it does not have a HD output to the PS3 socket, so I bought a DVI --> HDMI converter, but the monitor reports "No Signal". I really would like to set up his PS3 in HD mode, what are we doing wrong or missing here please?
All advice gratefully accepted, thanks guys.
EDIT: just realised that I have not checked to see if he has tried to connect the Converter to monitor via PC, in HDMI.
EDIT II: I have found the information elsewhere.
