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:
hdmi_safe=1 hdmi_drive=2 hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=47 config_hdmi_boost=7 framebuffer_width=1440 framebuffer_height=900
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.
