I received a DVI cable with my monitor. it was DVI-A, and on the monitor port it says, DVI-D. And my card's port is also DVI-D
Whenever I plug in the DVI-A cable into the DVI-D ports I get no signal on the monitor. Kind of sounds obvious doesn't it? But my friend who was with me when I hooked up the monitor said the difference in pins was negligible. he's knows a lot about computers so I took his word for granted
Now my question is, is plugging in a DVI-D cable the solution to the no-signal problem? I looked up the definitions of the two DVI types and on one site it said, "If one or both connections are DVI-D, you need a DVI-D cable."
