Hello,Recently my friend bought a new computer and wants to run dual monitors. However both the monitors ONLY have VGA connections.
The problem is that the integrated graphics card only has outputs for VGA, DVI-D and HDMI. We bought an adaptor to hook up the VGA to a DVI-D port but it just says theres no input signal to the monitor connected via the adaptor.
So is there anyway to get two VGA only monitors to run on this system without buying a new graphics card?
mobo: Asus M4A785T-M
integrated graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4200
Everyting Ive read about that motherboard Points out that it can support dual monitors but im not sure why your DVI adapter dose not work.
Yea that's what I was wondering aswell That's what the adaptors made for after all... Unfortunately monitors / their connections arn't my strong point
We were thinking it's maybe because it's a DVI-D connection? so they don't support adaptors for graphics card or something. Whereas other versions of DVI had the extra pins to support changing the signal to VGA or something. I don't know
