New Monitor Cable

  Tony W. 16:06 24 Oct 2009

I have a new Monitor which requires a DVI-I Dual connection cable(it didnt come with the monitor)

The retailer told me that I could get one in my local Maplins but they do not stock them.Also tried PC World curry's comet etc. without success.

Can anybody recommend a shop in London where I might get one.

Thank you.

DVI you only connect one of the DVI's from the Graphics card at the back of PC to one of the DVI's on the monitor. Others are for extra connections, if its two DVI on Graphics card it means you can run two monitors from the Card. If two DVI on Monitor that means you can connect another DVI device other than PC

Hi Brynit.

Thanks for the reply however if you look at the description of the cable in the link you provided you will see its a DVI-D which unfortunately isn't suitable it must be DVI-I Dual.

Hello again Brynit.
Excellent thanks again the Maplins shop I went to in Watford told me they did not stock them they must still be in Holiday Camp Mode.

Have now printed the page from your link and will take it into them on Monday.

Many thanks
