Hello, i just received a new 4870 x2 recently and it didnt come with a DVI to VGA adapter. Went to my closest electronics store (best buy) and i seem to have gotten the wrong one (DVI-I). I cant seem to get a direct answer online anywhere, its driving me mad. So if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated
I'm assuming your 4870x2 has two DVI ports since as far as I know all 4870x2's came that way. It's possible that one port is a DVI-I port and the other is a DVI-D port. You have the right adapter as of the two only the DVI-I port/adapter can output/pass an analog signal that can be used via VGA. Have you tried the other DVI port?
I figured out the problem. The dvi adapter metal socket (the metal surrounding the pins to hold it securely in place in the dvi slot) was slightly bended inwards all around, a dynex design choice. So i bent back the metal and now it fits perfectly and snug. Thanks everyone anyways for you help!
