Windows 7: Getting HDMI output on Windows 7

You said you are using an HDMI cable to connect your PC to the TV. I downloaded a .pdf of your manual and the 2 ways it states to connect to a PC is through the VGA from the PC to the VGA on the back of the TV which will provide plug and play functionality, the other method is to connect from the DVI output on the PC to the HDMI/DVI input on the TV and use the Input button on your remote, which method are you using?

It only had a few choices and they were all 60Hz.

I am currently using VGA to VGA because it works! I'm trying to get the HDMI to work using the input button yes.

If you use the DVI to HDMI converter then follow the instructions in your manual it should work just fine but you cannot keep the VGA to VGA connection since I think that will mess things up. Not all HDMI cables are built to standard and if this was one of those run of the mill relatively cheap no name HDMI cables one can find on the WWW it may be your problem and for the sake f a few $'s I'd opt to go with a name brand that meets, or exceeds, HDMI standards, I purchased on by Belkin and it works w/o issues, there are cables where a generic works just as well as a name brand but HDMI and eSATA are cables I'd rather spend my $'s on once by getting one that meets the standards.

I got a pretty expensive HDMI to DVI cable but to no avail. It's starting to get seriously annoying!!

I tried booting into low-res mode and found quite interesting results. It recognised the monitor as a digital one and allowed me to select all resolutions right up to 1080p. It would only let these run at a max refresh rate of 30Hz however. Another slight anomaly was that in this mode it would let me use every resolution apart from the native resolution of 1680x1050 which when selected showed 'no signal'.

Any more ideas would be fantastic.

If this is looking like a bit of a dead end, are there graphics cards out there that are very cheap but do a decent job and can output to HD easier than this Intel onboard rubbish? I don't really play games that much although I have just received a few for my birthday so would like to be able to play those at a decent frame rate. I am on a very limited budget however.

Looking at the cards the board supports is tough, see http://www.gigabyte.eu/FileList/Grap...ga-e45_g43.pdf

The ATi HD3870 was a good card in its day but I don't know anyone with your mobo who has tried one.

Are there any options in the intel control panel listing 720p or 1080i? nvidia/amd drivers offer basic (1680x1050/1920x1200..) and HDTV (720p/1080i..) display options and while some cannot get a TV to work under basic (1920x1200) it does work if they select hdtv 1080p.
Also there should be an option where you can set your own rez and timing settings in the intel control panel that could be worth a try
