HD 7850 HDMI blank screen
So I just bought a Sapphire HD 7850 to replace a Sapphire HD 5770 in my HTPC but I'm struggling to get any output through HDMI. I have the HTPC hooked up to a Panasonic VT30 TV.
Needless to say when the HD 5770 is used everything works fine. But when I boot with the HD 7850 installed I don't see the BIOS splash screen or the windows desktop. The Panasonic TV reports a 1080p / 50HZ input but only displays a blank screen.
I haven't tested the DVI port using a monitor (the Panasonic TV doesn't have a DVI port) so I can't be sure that the HD 7850 isn't faulty, but the fact that the HTPC boots into Windows with the HD 7850 (have confirmed this by remoting into the HTPC using my laptop) makes me think it's an HDMI handshake issue or similar?

Have you reinstalled the drivers from scratch? Because when switching to another model videocard, that is required.

Mine works fine with a vizio TV, however with the beta 12.4 drivers it wont play audio after waking from standby. The 12.3 were ok in that regard.
