Yes, that's correct. And I stepped out for a bit, been a bit preoccupied with things. It's good to be back.

Found my answer--thanks to all who helped out. I found the key in another thread--user who said he solved the problem by reinstalling his nVidia video drivers. I did that, and it solved the problem. Makes sense, when you consider that the video drivers control the HDMI port.

Another discovery: I had replaced a Vista 32-bit installation with a Windows 7 install, and I just assumed that 32-bit Win 7 would be installed. Nope--I've got an Athlon 64 in the box, so 64-bit Win 7 was installed. So, I downloaded and installed 64-bit Vista chipset drivers (including the display driver) from Shuttle's website. Fixed the problem immediately upon installation, with no tweaking or settings required.

You had to have had a 64-bit disc then. You cannot upgrade from any 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS and each Windows 7 disc comes with either a 32-bit or 64-bit version of what you're installing, not both. Doesn't matter though, the 64-bit version will benefit you more.

Actually, I think the install disk contained both 32 and 64-bit versions--it was a full install disk that Microsoft had given out at a user group event. I had been leery of going 64 bit, but it seems to work without a hitch. Into the future, kicking and screaming the entire way...
