Hi all, I'm having a problem that i can't work out. I don't do much gaming and I've got a 7900gtx that i want to run. It has the dual DVI so i got a VGA adapter from eBay but every time i plug in the monitor lead to the adapter it powers down. It does this even if the adapter isn't plugged into the card. There's no way on the monitor ( a dell SE177FP ) to switch it back on that i can see as the menu bottoms wont work as its powered down.
Any one have any ideas or is just the adapter doesn't work ( cross wired perhaps? ) or I've just done something wrong! ( more likely ) Any help appreciated, many thanks, mavers92
More aboutconnector problem maybe
That sounds to me like a bad DVI-VGA adapter. I would try and return it and get a new one- they're not too hard to get your hands on.
thanks flyinfinni, think i'll try to find a local computer fair and get one from there rather than go back to eBay, many thanks.
