I purchased a new gateway SX2800. The only video output options are VGA or HDMI. I am using a a gateway 22" TFTLCD monitor Model FPD2275W. It has every input but HDMI. With my old computer, I always used a DVI-DVI cable. The recommended screen setting is 1680x1050. I always have run it at that setting. I was originally using a VGA cable but ordered a high quality DVI to HDMI cable. When I install it, the higher the resolution I set it the more distortion I get. At the highest level, it reminds me of a bad UHF signal with lots of red. Everything works fine if I use the VGA cable. It has built in video and uses Intel Media Graphics Accelerator as the driver. It is also a Vista 64 bit system. Any ideas why the problem? Are the two components incompatible?
You have the HDMI out of the computer to the DVI input of the monitor, it should work. One thing I can think of are there a few different kinds of DVI. Make sure you have the right one, which I *think* should be DVI-I or DVI-D.
I doubt it applies, but I have a ps3 with HDMI, sometimes the colors got screwed up when the cable was slightly out of the socket. I had to make sure it was really firmly attached or it would lose a channel of color.
