I have a dell ultrascan21 and i wonted to know if i can connect it to g card via the dvi out, i have the adaptor it came with the graffix card but when i connect it the monitor says no signal,is there something i need to change for this connection type or should it just work.I also have a few connections on the back of the monitor one like a 9 pin din and a few switches do i need to use these.Also would there be any visual difference with the connection.
I have no idea how many connection types it supports as i said there is some other things on the back of the monitor i have never used,i am using it now with the standard connection plugged in to the g card but when i add the adapter to the end of the monitor cable and plug it into the dvi port on card i get no signal.
if you have a converter to put into the dvi plug at the back of the video card then it should display on your monitor. i had this running on proview 19" out of pc world and it worked fine. theres a better definition on text etc.
My card is a fx5700, and on desktop when i right click it says nvidea display but only analogue is showing.i haven't touched advanced timing as i said i don't know what it does.Do you need a DVI on both ends of the cable? if so thats my problem i only have one on the end that goes into card.The monitor cable splits at monitor end in to 5 seperate wires red,green,blue,grey,and black and they connect by pushing them on and turning.
