  • Gladiator A10-6800k HDMI issue

    I have recently bought the Gladiator A10-6800 to replace my aging secondary PC; to which I have added an SSD and an old XFX Radeon 6670 2gb graphics card that I had.

    Using my TV to initially set up the A10 I used an HDMI cable, which worked fine but when I came to set it up in place of the old PC I could no longer get a signal. So, at present, I have it set up using VGA to my monitor (LG M2380DF). This is not the end of the world but I would prefer to enjoy the HDMI that both the monitor and system can accomodate.

    Therefore any suggestions to resolve the issue would be gratefully received.

    Are you connecting the hdmi cable to the graphics card or motherboard? I know you can do that hybrid crossfire mode or whatever it is called but I don't know much about it and if you use the onboard outputs or the gtx card outputs.

    I wonder if something like that is active.

      Thanks for the interest.

      I had connected the cable to the motherboard. AMD suggest using the higher number card (Integrated is 8670) as primary and to connect the monitor to that card, which in this case is the motherboard. This resulted in no signal to the monitor, but as I had set up via HDMI on my TV I presume that the cable is OK.

        If you plug it into the card do you get an output?

          I have a 5800k that I was running via hdmi, then came to test it vga and couldn't get an output. I had to reset the cmos to get it to display. I hope this helps pal.

            Thanks for the replies.

            My son is now using the new PC so it will probably next weekend before I can get to look at it again; I'm normally too knackered after work!

              The chances are that you will have to connect both to the GPU rather than the onboard solution. Onboard is disabled when a discrete card is detected, as there's usually little point in keeping it active when it's not being used. You know, all that power saving stuff.

              If it doesn't work when both are plugged into the card, let us know. It could be something else too.
