How do I connect my PC to Plasma TV ?

I'm really struggling with this one so any help appreciated.

I have an XP Pro PC and a Plasma TV with HDMI input and I want to hook up so that I can view my PC on the TV screen.

I have a DVI - HDMI cable but when I hook up to the PC, nothing happens. When I check my video card control panel, it doesn't allow me to have dual outputs (settings are greyed out) and the only active option seems to be analog output.

I've tried putting a DVI-VGA adapter on one end of the cable but, again, nothing appears on the TV.

I'm clearly doing something stupid wrong here or maybe my video card is not the right one (NVIDIA Ge-Force 7025/nForce 630a).

Any ideas ?

You need to connect the computer to the TV when they are switched off. Switch TV on and change to HMDI channel switch the computer on and you should now be able go into the display options to use the dual output.

Does your computer have a HDMI connection if it does it is better to connect the HMDI to HMDI and will also allow you to have the sound through your TV.
