I have one hdmi cable for my tv that i alternate between my xbox 360 and pc. when I switched it from my xbox 360 back to my pc today it for the first time ever had no signal. it says invalid format not no signal there is a difference between the two. I dont know what it means or what the problem may be. any suggestions?

upon further inspection I noticed that one of the pins on the hdmi connecter on the pc has been stripped off, what can i do to fix this?

I wouldn't recommend trying to fix it. I'm not sure that it could be fixed anyways. Here's a link to a HDMI cable:

I have two of those and they have both worked great for 3+ years.

If you want to save a little money, I'm sure you couldn't go wrong with this one:

Hope this helps!

hey man thanks for youre reply. the problem is not with the hdmi cable; it still works fine for my xbox 360. the problem is on the connector attached to the video card in my pc. im wondering if i have to get a new video card, or if I can just replace the entire connector which sits atop my video card inside the pc and has an external input/output

no my warranty is long expired. So I will buy the cable. I would rather my pc be 100% condition but that solution shall be acceptable.

Sorry I couldn't help you fix the hdmi port issue, but that sounds like something that would need a replacement. Glad I could help with the cable!

Do this, open the intel graphic properties then disable the grapic adapter, then just re enable it, works for me
