How to connect my computer to VGA using a DVI-to-VGA adapter?

My computer connects just fine to my monitor with HDMI and VGA, but I have an HDTV I want to use and it would have to be with the DVI port.

Tips for doing this? I tried starting up the computer up with just the DVI-VGA cord attached but it didn't detect the display. Is there a keyboard combination I am supposed to press or a bios option?

You can use a DVI-HDMI adapter. Your TV probably doesn't support a resolution you're using with VGA. Read the TV manual to see what VGA resolutions it supports.
