So I just got finished building my new computer, anyway I can't get my monitor to detect a signal when I use my VGA to dvi connector that comes with the graphics cards. For example my old gt 240 has a VGA and dvi slot; when plugged into VGA it works fine but when I plug it in the dvi slot with an adapter my monitor gets no signal. This is really irritating because my new 660 ti only has dvi slots and no luck with that either. Any help would be appreciated
Bumping is not required. What make/model of 660ti do you have?
It is possible that you are plugging your VGA adapter into a DVI-D (digital only) port. If so, you can't use a VGA adapter with that port. You must use with a DVI-I (supports digital and analog devices) port.
It is also possible that the provided adapter is defective.
If you monitor supports DVI (or any other digital connection) you should use that instead of the VGA connection.
I'm using the MSI 660 ti, and I've tried using a VGA to dvi on both the 660 ti and gt 240 and no signal.
And I've tried two adapters and neither of them work. It's either VGA only or nothing. I'll try to get pictures if that helps
I'll go out and buy one today. One more thing though, I have a tv that has one vga port, would the vga to vga+dvi adapter work on that? I hope I make sense, but I can't try until later on today so I'm just asking. The resolution is like 1366x768 i think so it can be temporary if it works.
