type of connection doesn't matter, dvi, hdmi, etc. it should work regardless of what type of connection, even without a driver installed. can you see the post screen or go to bios?

Try swapping around PCIe slots? You sure that the extra power connection to the card is securely connected? Just for sh_ts n giggles clear the CMOS and reboot. Make sure that there isn't any PCIe slot disable jumpers in the "off" position (if your board has any).

HDMI issues were actually pretty prevalent with Windows 7 installations pre-SP1. Every time I helped people install Windows 7 while using an HDMI connection the installation would finish but when it cam to the first boot it only goes to a black screen. Connecting to a DVI or DB-9 resolved this.

If you can't even get to the BIOS, that means your card is not getting enough power.

that doesn't make any sense, you should be able to see the post/bios regardless of OS or drivers installed, or even without a hard drive. if you can't see those then you have a hardware issue.

it might be, or it might not be, it can be lots of things.

Sorry. I may not have explained that correctly, I can actually see the POST/BIOS screens while using HDMI and even the Windows 7 splash logo, but, when it came to the Windows 7 desktop nothing shows up but a black screen. The issue was resolved by using DB-9 or DVI and then installing a video card driver. The problem was actually a combination of a video card that was too new for Windows 7's inbox driver and HDMI.

@CVB5 Mobster: Since it does no show up the BIOS screen it's more than likely a bad video card or a case of the video card not getting enough juice.
