I have an acer X233H monitor which I can connect via HDMI or VGA.
When I connect it with HDMI I don't see the windows XP loading screen or the BIOS screen.. But with VGA I do.
There's absolutely no difference between the two cables when running the operating system. What could cause this discrepancy?
Furthermore, I also notice that the monitor takes a little longer to start displaying images (that is identify a signal) when it is connected to the HDMI cable.
