DVI-I or DVI-D?

I'm looking for a video card with DVI-I (I think) and I see some that have a different type of connector that the wires I have. Mine has 6 columns of pins (two groupings of 3) while photo of some cards show connectors with 8 columns. ARE these compatible or do you need exact matches, is mine DVI-I?

If i rember correctly if a card supports DVI-D and a monitor only supports DVI-I you can just use a DVI-I cable and it should work.

How to install a female DVI to my computer


If you are trying to connect a monitor that has only DVI connections to an older PC that only has VGA-15 pin, the easiest solution is to buy a replacement video board that has DVI capability. However, ensure that the DVI is of the same TYPE as the monitor. There are a number of different DVI configurations, and they are not all compatible with each other. There are VGA-to-DVI adapter cables, but they only work if the DVI is DVI-A or DVI-I, since the VGA port is analog and not digital.

Here is a link to the different DVI configurations. You can compare them to the connector on your device to see what type you need. If it is a digital-only type, you will need either a new video card that supports digital or you need to get a analog-to-digital converter cable. They are more than just an adapter; they have electronics that convert the signal.

A blue display box continually pops up with Input Select D sub DVI. I am thinking it is something to do with the monitor. What is wrong?


This monitor has two types of video inputs, a 15 pin VGA D-sub connector and a DVI connector.
If the video card has a 15 pin D-Sub then connect the video cable to the 15 pin D-Sub connector on the monitor.
If the video connectors are DVI then connect the video card and monitor with a DVI video cable.
You will also need to configure the monitor for either the D-Sub or DVI video input.

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

Hi,

I believe you are referring to a DVi connector. We have different types of connectors but none of them is DFi. We have VGA, HDMI, SATA, and DVi connectors. Here's a cheklist of what you need to do:
  1. Check the connector of the computer whether you have VGA, HDMI, SATA, or DVi
  2. Check the connector of the monitor whether you have VGA, HDMI, SATA, or DVi
  3. Now that you know the type of connectors you have for your system, you know what cable to buy.
It does not really matter if your computer and monitor have different connectors. We can purchase cables with VGA - VGA, HDMI - HDMI, DVi - DVi, VGA - HDMI, VGA - DVi, HDMI - DVi. So, don't worry and thank you for choosing FixYa!

Dvi port specification


The DVI [Digital Visual Interface] is a standard for high-speed, high-resolution digital displays.
Below is a 24 Pin DVI Female connector seen at the Computer. The connector diagram and pin-out table show a DVI-I Digital and Analog [RGB]; 29 pins [modified D style] connector. A DVI-D Digital only connector with 24 pins [modified D style] looks about the same with out the 4 analog 'C' pins.

The DVI interface is found on a number of devices including TVs, Computers, Monitors, and Video cards.
Digital Visual Interface [DVI] was developed by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG).
Note that the Digital Display Working Group disbanded around 2006, so don't expect an up-grade for DVI.

Digital Video Broadcasting/Digital Audio-Visual Council (DVB/DAVIC),
developed by DAVIC [inactive] and DVB [dvb.org].
Adopted by European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) and
International Telecommunication Union (ITU)
DVI has a number of different types connectors:
DVI-D Digital only connector; 24 pins [modified D style];
DVI-A Analog only; [modified D style], I don't think this is part of the standard
DVI-I Digital and Analog [RGB]; 29 pins [modified D style]
DFP Digital Flat Panel, Digital only connector. Pinout is listed on the DFP page

Hello, the integrated video card in the Compaq s3310cl doesn't have a DVI port, however you may purchase and DVI to VGA adapter which should allow you to hook up that Samsung 2243swx Monitor. Be aware there are various types of DVI connectors so match up the connector you require for you Samsung Monitor.

What video card can I upgrade to MSI Part No: MS-6566E-010


Here's the best recommendation I can give you:

Your motherboard supports both AGP and PCI. Because of the fact that you have AGP, you could go that route for a video card. If you look at this link, you'll see different types of video cards that will work with the AGP slot. The other thing to consider is the output. If you don't have a monitor that supports DVI (white wide connector with 24 pins) then your choices are narrowed to VGA (blue 15 pin connector. First let's look at the AGP cards:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=318

You'll notice that some have more memory than others. The ones with more memory are better with respects to being able to process more video within their own GPU(graphics processing unit)
Some of the cards have DVI and VGA video out. Some of the cards have only DVI out. Not to worry because most cards have a DVI to VGA adapter. It won't run in true DVI output, but that's okay. If you have a DVI monitor, then you're in luck!

PCI - PCI cards are getting more rare to find since the newer technology is all PCIe or PCI-x, which your motherboard does not support, so your choices will be more limited. You can look at some options here:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=319&name=PCI-Video-Cards&
Again, any of these will work too. It's going to come down to basically preference. AGP is just as good in MY opinion as PCI. Things to consider when buy the new card are:
1) Reputation of vendor/manufacturer
2) Price
3) Warranty
4) How good is their support is you have an issue (Of course you always have us here at FixYa)

I would be glad to give you a yeah or nay once you narrow it down. Also, if you like, you can read a little bit more about DVI here: http://www.connectworld.net/cis/digital-monitors.html

Monitors that support DVI are more affordable and offer superior output resolution as opposed to VGA. I hope I've helped and if you need any clarification, just add a comment and I will be glad to respond.
Best Regards...Jerry

My visonteck 1300 graphics card box states that it can be interfaced with my hdtv via dvi cord, where do i find a cord for it? what is it DVI to USB or DVI to PCmoniter cord?


Depending on the connections on your HDTV you'll have a few different options.

DVI on HDTV - Using a simple DVI to DVI cable will work. (DVI is the larger port on your video card - generally white in color)

VGA on HDTV - Use a standard VGA monitor cable to connect them. (VGA is the Blue 15pin connector on the video card)

HDMI on HDTV - This is the case for most new HDTVs - You'll need a DVI to HDMI cable - your local electronic store will have these in the tv section.

If all else fails you can use s-video (the circular connector) this is much lower quality though.

Video Input Selection Problem


That is due to the fact that you can only connect 1 desktop to the HP LP2465 as most monitors.

For one the LP2465 does not have the picture in picture technology and for another the two ports you are connecting your Macs into are DVI (Digital Video Interface) connections. One is the Single DVI and the other is a Dual DVI.

It does not mean you can connect two Mac computers to the same display and both work. That is not practical because there is only one video input interaction possible with a computer and a monitor.

The DVI connections are determined by their ability to use either Analog and Digital signal transmissions through one connector.

So in order to effectively use your HP LP2465, you can only use 1 computer with the monitor because it is not designed to work with two computer graphics cards at once. Most LCDs have only one DVI or VGA connector to connect to a computer- your just happens to host two types of DVI connections is all..

That is the reason one computer is on with your display and the other is not displaying any video.

Take a look at this great explanation of the differences between Single DVI and Dual DVI connectors via this link:
Digital Video Interface (DVI)- Defined
