Re: NO signal using DVI-D
A. There are two types of cable; DVI "I" and DVI "D". Make sure you are using the correct one
B. Update your following drivers:
1.VGA card driver 27.00 or later version
2.WDM driver(capture driver) 1.11 or later version
3.Expertool program (overclocking program) 2.81 or later version
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.
Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.
If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps: 1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.
2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure. Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.
3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC. Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI. Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.
Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.
Hello figment_of_u, DVI stands for Digital Video Interface. They are used for direct digital connections between
source video (namely, video cards) and LCD monitors. This provides a faster, higher-quality image
than with analog, due to the nature of the digital format.
All video cards initially produce a digital video signal, which
is converted into analog at the VGA output. The analog signal
travels to the monitor and is re-converted to a digital
signal. DVI-D eliminates the analog conversion process and
improves the connection between source and display.
Hope this helps you understand what DVI is for. Thank you for choosing Fixya.
DVI is a new form of video interface technology made to maximize the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and high-end video graphics cards. It is a replacement for the P&D Plug & Display standard.
you can connect high definition monitor , LCD projector , LCD T.V to a DVI port
There three kind of DVI connector 1. DVI-D (Digital)
2. DVI-A (Analog)
3. DVI-I (Integrated Digital/Analog)
DVI-D format is used for direct digital connections between source video
(namely, video cards) and digital LCD (or rare CRD) monitors
DVI-A - High-Res Analog
DVI-A format is used to carry a DVI signal to an analog display, such as a CRD monitor or and HDTV
DVI-I - The Best of Both Worlds
DVI-I format is an integrated cable which is capable of transmitting
either a digital-to-digital signal or an analog-to-analog signal, but it
will not work transmitting a digital-to-analog or analog-to-digital
How to Recognize These three types of DVI Cable
There are two variables in every DVI connector cable, and each represents one characteristic.
The flat pin on one side denotes whether the cable is digital or analog:
A flat pin with four surrounding pins is either DVI-I or DVI-A
A flat pin alone denotes DVI-D
The pinsets vary depending on whether or not the cable is single- or dual-link:
A solid 27-pin set (rows of 8) for a dual- link cable
Two separated 9-pin sets (rows of 6) for a single-link cable
Make sure your monitor is set up to recieve what ever signal you are wanting via the monitor's menu. There should be an input button on the monitor to select the signal type. The connection really doesn't matter as long as you are able to use the monitor. There could be something wrong with the connector on the video card. Also make sure you are using the card and are not using the onboard graphics connection by mistake. If the problem persists it is more than likely the card.
You don't specify what kind of monitor, CRT, LCD, or even a TV attached to your system, you're using. It's likely the monitor is set to receive a certain kind of signal (either analog or digital) but it's receiving the other one instead. Before proceeding to the next steps, ensure the connections are solid and the the screws are set tightly and there's no movement.
Get your user's manual and learn how to navigate the monitor's menu in order to get to the setting where you choose Analog (for a VGA cable connection) or more commonly with LCD screens, Digital (DVI).
VGA and DVI connectors differ in shape and in the number and layout of their pins. If you're using a video card with a DVI connector (larger, more squarish D shape, with three separate sections of pins) then your monitor shoud be set to Digital. Else, your connector is VGA and thus your monitor should be set to Analog.
If both are in synch and you still do not get a signal, it's possible the video card has given out its ghost, since if you DO see the NO SIGNAL message displayed on your monitor, the monitor is Ok.
Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.
Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.
1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card
Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary
2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable
At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display
3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard
set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel
If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )
At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop
If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port
No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )
If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.
If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"
Seems like this was already answered?
But once you've checked against the owner's manual and ruled out the PC, I would suspect the signal / video board inside the monitor. May have gotten a surge or static, etc.
