Vga Monitor For Dvi Port

I have a dell e177fp monitor that i want to set up as a second monitor. I already have another monitor using the only vga port on my system. Now there is a dvi port in my system also which could be used to connect a second monitor. Unfortunately, the e177fp monitor doesn't have a dvi port (neither does the other monitor). My question is, if i use a vga to dvi adapter to connect the e177fp to the dvi port, will this work?

Monitor Won't Detect Vga, But Works Fine With Dvi

It's a hp w1707 if that helps. Today i'm getting some hdmi cables to hook my ps3 up to my monitor since all i have is a sdtv and can't afford to buy a hdtv. To make things easier on myself, i decided to go drag out my vga cables and hook that up to my computer, and hook my ps3 up to the dvi port so all i'd have to do is just switch the input back and fourth. That's when i ran into a problem. If i plug my vga cables in, it will not detect the display, but the second i plug the dvi into my video card (hd4870 1gig) it's fine again. I'm at a loss, as i said i just wanted to keep both plugged in and just switch between them, so obviously i've already tried switching input modes. I've tried restarting, i've tried setting my card to auto-detect displays (even though i know that's not the issue) i've tried setting my video card to force detection. I've tried having the screen auto adjust. None of it worked. The weird thing is the different results i get depending on the combo of buttons i push on the monitor and the cable(s) hooked up to the monitor itself. If both are unplugged from my comp, but plugged into my monitor, the screen will say no input detected. If both are connected and dvi is plugged in to my computer, it will work fine. If both are plugged into the monitor but vga in computer, it will say auto adjusting please wait, then will only have my background on the screen (no icons no mouse, and if i crtl atl and del the screen goes black) if only the vga is plugged into the monitor, it will say check video connections, if vga only is plugged into both the monitor and computer, it will go to sleep almost instantly.

Acer Lcd Monitor Dvi Cable Doesn't Fit In Back Of Pc

How can i hook up a acer lcd monitor to a hp computer, the dvi cable doesn't fit in the back of the pc? Explain how it does not fit. Are there not enough pins? You might be using a dvi-i cable to a dvi-d connection, or a dual-link cable to a single-link connection. Or maybe you don't have a dvi connection at all.

Dvi Or Hdmi To Connect Computer To Monitor

Should i use dvi or hdmi to connect my computer to my monitor? My screen resolution is 1920x1200 and my monitor has inputs for both dvi and hdmi. I currently have it hooked up using a dvi cable because i don't have an hdmi cable. Would i benefit in any way by switching to hdmi? Would i benefit by staying with dvi instead of switching to hdmi or is it the same both ways?

Dvi To Vga Adapter

I'm getting the 6600 gt ( bfg ) soon , but i just realized that the card have these connectors only ( connectors: dual dvi-i, hdtv / s-video out ). That means there is no vga connection. And what i have in my house is this 19' crt monitor. So shall i get a dvi to vga adapter or what ? And how much do these costs ? ( I think it's the adapter won't come with the box, here is the link for the card http://www.Bfgtech.com/6600gt.html ). Never saw a dvi to vga adapter and i don't know if i need one and how much do they cost. Thanks in advance guys !

Edit: sorry for the rush, i realized that a dvi to vga dongle is included in the box. Anyways to not make this thread totally trash, what is the main benefit for a dvi-i connector?

Using Dvi / Vga Ports Simultaneously

My boss wants a new video card and dual monitor set-up. I've ordered 2 kds rad-7gs flat panel lcd monitors for this purpose, i think they use 15-pin d-sub vga connectors. Most of the video cards i've been looking at have multiple video out ports, however there are very few video cards out there with dual-vga ports. I'd rather get a better video card with 1 vga / 1 dvi out and just use a dvi-vga converter for the second monitor. I'm worried that i wouldn't be able to use both ports simultaneously. Is this possible? I've noticed on the spec sheets some of them list "dual monitor support". If that's not listed, should i assume that the ports can't be used simultaneously?

Dvi-d Connector To Dvi-d Dual Link

Im looking at a graphics card that has a dvi dual link output. The monitors i am looking at list dvi inputs. I am assuming they are dvi-d single link. Can i use a single link cable on the dual link outputs? It looks like the single link just has less pins, are they compatible? I know i wont benefit from the increased resolution and such, but will it work, or do i need to look at adapters?

Should I Use Dvi For My Pc Monitor Connection ?

My computer only seems to work through the dvi port, and i when i got it i got a dvi-vga adaptor, and was using that connected to a vga lead, then to my monitor. Got a new monitor/tv combo though with an actual dvi port. I don't have any dvi leads to my knowledge, so my question is would i get any benefit from buying one and using that? And is there anything i should take into consideration, e.g. The type or quality of the lead i buy (i don't really know anything about them. )

Secondly, my 360 is also connected to this tv, so if i freed up the vga port would i then get a benefit from buying a 360 vga lead to connect it by that, or should i stick to component?

My tv/monitor is an lg m2094d, 1680x1050, 720p.

Dvi-i Vs Dvi-d Support

From what i understand, the "d" in dvi-d stands for dual link. It can transmit higher bandwidth. (Ok) i recently bought an alienware with 1920x1080x120hz resolution. This is connected to my custom tower, with an ati 4870x2 video card. Internet browsing looks real good, & games like cod-mw look great. Bf/bad company-2 is still having high-end compatibility. (Getting better )

Question: how do i know i'm getting "full" bandwidth, & not just running on dvi-i from the 4870x2 video card? I'm not concerned with the 3-d affects. I just want great graphics. If i was to buy a new video card down the road, i wonder would the ati 5970, or the new nvida 480 series work better with my monitor ?

Eyefinity Displayport Dvi Or Displayport Vga

This poll is for eyefinity owners who use a displayport adapter. My three lcds do not have any displayports. I will be running 3x 1680x1050, so svga should work. I will be purchasing a 5850 imminently and an adapter. Sapphire has failed in delivering their adapter by quoted timeframe (stated newegg will have it for sale by 1/9/10). I would like to know how many folks are out there using the active dvi adapter or the svga adapter. Please state the problems you're having (flickering, wake up, etc), if any. Please state the native resolution of the lcd you're using the svga adapter for and if it has any issues. There is a fellow at wsg who is having problems with the svga adapter at 1920x1080.

Extending Desktop To Monitor With Dvi Cord

I have a desktop with a vga and a dvi port. My current monitor is plugged into the vga. I want to plug a 2nd monitor into the dvi so that i can extend the desktop. 2nd monitor is turned on. The dell red/green/blue/white "self test feature check" is meanding around the screen. However, when i plug the dvi cord in, my primary monitor immediately displays a "connection lost" on the screen, so i can't do anything further. I have also tried unplugging the vga to my primary monitor while leaving the dvi plugged into the 2nd monitor - that does nothing either. Finally, i have tried shutting down the comp and starting it up with both the vga and dvi plugged in. In this case, i see the pre-boot stuff on my primary monitor, and i even see the initial windows startup icon. However, the screen loses connection again before i see the login to windows screen. I then have to unplug the dvi cord to see that screen.

Convert Dvi To Hdmi For Samsung Monitor

How to convert dvi to hdmi for a samsung monitor? I am gonna buy a samsung 24" full hd monitor which has a dvi port but not a hdmi. Sometimes i am gonna use my home-theater to connect to this monitor but the problem is that my home-theater has a hdmi conn only and no dvi conn. I asked the dealer , he said that a converter is available , what will the converter do, will it connect the dvi to hdmi, will there be quality loss?

Will this conversion have effect on the full hd 1080p movies i will watch? I have also heard that dvi does not carry sound, so then where will the sound go after conversion and lastly what all effects will this conversion make, and for how much is this converter available and which brand is good.
