Just got my custom built computer from the shop (I ordered all the parts), but I have one problem. It won't display on my monitor. I tried using a vga cable but it didn't display. What cord do I need?

It has a DVI and a HDMI port.

You can get DVI to VGA adaptors if your monitor only has a VGA port.

Are you plugging into the plugs on the video card or the motherboard?



Stupid question but it's one many people make.

The videocard should have come with a DVI-VGA adapter to plug into the video card, then a VGA cord.


I didn't see any plugs that came with the video card or even a vga cord.
