DVI-D stopped working but VGA still works Tags: Graphics Cards VGA Graphics Last response: January 7, 2012 12:07 PM in Graphics & Displays Share DogSlobba January 7, 2012 7:41:34 AM I have an AMD A8 GPU with no graphics card. It was working fine, on 24/7 for days, then I restarted it and the monitor went blank and stayed blank. And I mean blank. No signal, not even the BIOS text. I tried the VGA port and amazingly it works. I don't think it is overheating because it stayed on for so long with no problems (running BIONC at 100%). I reset the PC to finish installing a Windows update. Someone told me that could affect the BIOS, but I saw on MS's site that they say their updates do not affect the BIOS. I can use the PC like this but it's a little fuzzy on the monitor. I am worried that some other component will fail soon and I will lose even the VGA port. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be? I have never heard of this problem before, and google is no help.

Try switching to another DVI-D cable. It could be possible the the DVI-D port on either the motherboard or monitor no longer works. DogSlobba January 7, 2012 12:07:51 PM Yes I am using the integrated graphics of the A8 APU (I meant APU, not GPU). I had not thought of the cable going. I didn't know they could just stop working like that. I will try a new cable and report back. The details are: A8-3850 APU, MSI A75MA-G55 motherboard. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
