I have a PC with a MB Intel DG35EC, it has one port VGA and one DVI-D
I have my principal monitor in the VGA Port, and I want to conect a Projector in the other port.
I got a DVI-VGA adapter, and conected the Projector in the other port (with the adapter)
I have WinXP and it doesn't recognized the second monitor.
I try to go to "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver" by Ctrl+Alt+F12, but there's a message telling me that there's no a second monitor connected.
Good (on the Windows part). BTW, not all DVI to VGA adapters are the same. Where did you get the adapter you are using? Did it come with the computer or with the projector or with something else? Last, have you tried switching the cable positions of the monitor (with adapter, if needed) and the projector?
I got the adapter on eBay. I realized that there are many types of DVI. (Actually, this is the second adapter that i get, the first one was the incorrect )
Well, i also tried to switch the cables, but It doesn't work.
My primary monitor is an LCD, and doesn't support DVI
Ok, maybe the adapter is not working. Fail
If the projector will work as your primary display, connected via the VGA cable directly to the projector, then I think you do, indeed, have a faulty adapter (or simply the wrong one for your video adapter).
