Trouble seeing and using HDMI TV in Windows

Hello I have the exact same TV and issue as this guy here Problems connecting using westinghouse hd tv monitor I did the devices thing with no luck, the TV is on, plugged in correctly and my computer just won't see it. Now I did plug an Xbox 360 into it, and that worked except there was no sound. I do not need sound, I just want the display to work, any tricks I can do in Windows to help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

PS. Oh and the TV works fine through the old style cables on a DVD player, and the VGA, I just have anew video card and can't use my current adapters

Some questions:

So you're using the HDMI output on the GTX 1070 to an HDMI connection on the TV?

Have you set the TV to the proper input?

Will the card's HDMI output drive a smaller monitor?

HDMI is supposed to deliver Image and Sound Signal to a Monitor or TV.
