I have a lcd display. It has a vga and dvi port.
Connecting lcd display to desktop using the vga or dvi port works fine.
But connecting desk top hdmi to display dvi port using dvi d cable and
a hdmi to dvi adapter, didn't work.
Is there a way to mak that connection work?
It's some time ago I tried, I don't remember if I rebooted. I think I did.
The graphic card I normally use doesn't have a hdmi port. However the
graphic should support hdmi via dvi d using an adapter but haven't tried that.
But not to mess anything up, I made the hdmi to dvi display
test by building in a graphic card with hdmi port, and using a
hard drive with a trial version of windows 7 and with the graphic card
I don't know whether that is "to little software", to make it work.
Now I remember, that the desk top mainboard has a built in hdmi
port. Maybe I should try to remove the graphic card, and install
windows 7 and necessary drivers on the second hard drive?
I don't have a display with a hdmi port on which I can test that
the hdmi connection works at all.
