I only have one HDMI port on the back of my PC and it's the one coming out of my video card.
My monitor doesn't have HDMI nor I have a separate HDMI on the back of my build.

Can I make it work somehow?

Nope sorry you can't. Your plugging an output into an output. Now having said that, does the video card have HDMI input? Most don't but just thought I'd check.

You could get an HDMI to VGA or displayport adapter

True. That would work to plug it into the VGA or DVI of a computer monitor.

That's all well and good if he just wants to run a picture slideshow or something, but anything else is going to be problematic because there won't be any sound.

Also true. You can get HDMI to DVI that also allows for a separate audio output.
