In system prerences>displays did you click detect display? Also make sure the monitor is set to the correct channel/setting.

Signal ain't getting thru. Why did you put an extra cable in between, should have gotten a straight Mini-DP to HDMI cable and done away with the DVI middleman. They are really inexpensive:
What samjanpet mentions is crucial. Until the display is in HDMI mode, it will not talk to the Mac and the Mac won't recognize it.

The Mac does not use Drivers for specific displays, so nothing on that CD will be useful anyway.
Instead, the Mac uses a highly parameterized display driver for each graphics card. When the display identifies itself by name and capabilities, Mac software automatically sets the parameters in the Driver for optimum performance with the stated display capabilities.
The problem comes when a display does not properly identify itself. No picture.
