Hi, I have a 6850. I am trying to connect a VGA display via an active mini display adapter. I have tried a couple of different monitors but I have never managed to get my computer to detect anything plugged into the mini display port. Any suggestions on what could be the cause of the problem?
What make/model of adapter? It is very unlikely that it performs the necessary digital to analog conversion. Active adapters are usually used to synch multiple digital connections and not perform signal conversions.
A DVI-I port (carries both digital and analog signals) with the proper adapter/cable can connect to a VGA display.
Hi again, first thank you for the persistent assistance. No my PC is not a dell, For the purpose of testing the mini display I have tried it with and without other monitors connected including DVI and HDMI systems. I have had no success with any combination.
Sorry no I only have the mini DP - VGA connector and have tried it as a primary monitor with HDMI and DVI as secondaries, I have also tried the mini DP - VGA as the only monitor connected however that never went further than boot as it would not out put a display. I am starting to think my card is faulty. Thank you again for your time.
