Hi guys ,

im really confused of this problem and i need a solution quick.ok let me tell the problem . i have bought a gts 250 nvidia 1gb gddr3 gfx card and i have a vga moniter and it has no dvi out puts . But the gfx card has Dvi-i outputs and when i use Dvi-D to Vga converter to connect moniter and gfx card it says no signal . My question is if i use Dvi-i to vga converter will it work ? Will Dva-D Work With Dvi-i ? Please help this im really confused and spent a lot on this card.

You need a DVI-I to VGA adapter or cable. DVI-D does not have the analog signal component that DVI-I does.

VGA is comprised of an R, G, B analog signal and a horizontal sync and vertical sync digital signals.

DVI-D is carries purely digital signals.

DVI-I carries both analog and digital signal components.

A DVI-I to VGA adapter passes the R, G, B and the Horizontal and Vertical Sync signal components of DVI-I to the VGA cable/monitor.
