I plug in my VGA to my mobo's slot, and my screen doesn't receive a signal. Help! More about : connect monitor mobo millwright February 2, 2013 3:50:54 PM A few specs, or links would help. You probably have display ports, and or a HDMI. You need an adapter HDMI to VGA, or Display port t VGA, or DVI to VGA If you are just connecting a second monitor, a simple adapter should work. If you are connecting a third monitor, both adapters have to be active, if using 2 display ports. Some boards on-board video, is disabled, when you plug in a dedicated card. Not all, but we don't know what your board is. Edit DVI to VGA, is the cheapest, and simplest. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
