The SD card I ordered a week ago showed up at my house today so I threw Raspbian on it with Win32DiskManager and attempted to boot up, but I was greeted without any kind of video signal. After doing a bit of reading, I figured this problem stemmed from the Mini-HDMI to VGA converter I was using to connect to my monitor.

I've made sure the issue isn't the Pi itself by verifying that it shows up in Device Manager whenever I connect it to my computer via USB.

I've changed the following in the config.txt file but still no avail:


Unfortunately I have no other cables/monitors at the moment to test different connections on, so I'm not sure what to do at this point. Any help with this issue would be appreciated.
