    That isn't very clear. You mean the dvi input on the monitor doesn't work. If it is burned out or something your probably out of luck. You can try a vga cable if your tv has a vga input. Try testing the HDMI cable with and without the adapter if you have anything to test it on, perhaps you have a bad cable.

    press buttons Fn and F5 together and it should show on your tv if you have it correctly set up
