Question about Envision EN-985e Monitor
I have a envision monitor- name: g19wlk that has both vga & dvi connection - To get the best picture.. I bought a vga to dvi adaptor ( my computer only has a vga plug ) so when i use the dual adaptor it doesnt show any picture at all when used - only when using the vga cord- is there something im not hooking up properly -- please help thanks
You will not benefit from the DVI input unless you have DVI output on your computer. The great advantage of DVI is that the picture is transferred in digital form all the way from your computer to the individual pixels on the monitor. If you only have VGA output on your computer then you will never get a better picture than by using a good quality VGA cable to link that to the VGA input on your monitor.
The DVI plug is designed to carry both digital and analogue (VGA) signals on the various pins, so "adaptors" exist to allow a VGA monitor to attach to a DVI output on a computer. Monitors may also support VGA input from their corresponding DVI input sockets, but the picture quality will never be better than by using a good VGA cable because it is still not using the digital capability of the DVI interface. What's more, because you may need more adaptors and thinner conductors in the cable, you will probably achieve a marginally poorer picture than with VGA to VGA.
When you next buy a PC or a new video card, get one with DVI to take advantage of your new monitor. In the meantime, your best bet is a quality VGA to VGA link.
Sorry that's not what you were wanting to hear, but I hope it will help you avoid further frustration.
