You have to get the pin out diagram for the connect and the pplug and if you dont want to do the work yourself there are places that specailizes in these type of matter, you tell them what you and what youneed it to do and they make the cable for you and there are not that exspensive, the costs are low.
computer cable specailist, or cable america, cables to go.

Graphics dnt work tried everthing in compatibility doesnt work pls help


The problem is usually that the monitor has the wrong input selected.
If you are using VGA (The 15 pin connector, maker sure VGA or AUTO is selected in the monitor setup.
IF you are using a DVI cable, (18 pins also called a single link cable ) make sure DVI or AUTO is selected.
Many monitors will not work with a 24 pin DVI cable. (Also called a double link cable.)
The main reason is because they are not able to reach the resolutions of double link, or the graphics card is using the center 6 pins of the double link DVI cable for some other usage, which is a bad idea.

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!


1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"


The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -
BURN

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -
BURN

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

I just want to know if this card has a 2 or 3 pin audio connector on it anywhere. i want to purchase one but not without some type of audio capability on the the card.EVGA 512-P3-N982-B2


No present video card has audio circuits/connectors on it. You are probably referring to a Home Theater card with VIVO capabilities- this is something totally different, completely unrelated products. A combination of both has been produced in low quantity in the past , but not in the last 8 years.
If this is the case then you will need 2 separate cards.

If i connect the DVI cable to my Video card (9200 family)and to my monitor an Asus VH222H i get a dialogue box saying no DVI signal. if i use the VGA cable everything works fine.Does this mean the card...


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.

When I connect the moniter to the graphic card geforce 6200 it will not show a display at all. connection to the computer using the regular connection it shows


On both the Graphics card and the monitor, the blue connector is a 15 pin DSub VGA video and the white connector is a DVI video.
With the monitor it should default to the 15pin DSub video input.
If you want to use the DVI video input you need to configure the monitor to use the DVI video input. DVI to DVI give the best picture quality.
If you want to go from 15pin DSub to DVI you need a converter cable.
Try conviguring the monitor for a DVI video input.

What graphic card is compatible for my pc?? i have HP PAVILION, g3660d, 2 GB RAM, WINDOW VISTA home basic.I want to play games like Left 4 dead, COD 4....


Well... Windows Vista can be installed on anything. I'm not familiar with your particular PC, but there are two ends to the problem. A) Plug in to PC end. Here there are the PCI-bus, and PCI-E standards. PCI-E comes in many flavors, a tiny tiny connection (1 lane), and a wide connection (>1 lanes? don't remember 8?). Open your PC box and look at the slot closest to the CPU, that is typically the graphics card expansion slot. Take a picture (if you have a camera), note if this slot is "different" from the other slots... it is likey to be. Then you can google PCI-E and PCI connectors to see if you can match them up. If you have a *NEW* pc it's likely you have a PCI-E bus. This is the *faster* solution.
2) Card to monitor. There are multiple ports on many of the new PC graphics cards... from oldest to newest VGA - This is a DB-9 type connector... looks like a oval but is longer on one side than the other. (i.e. not a rectangle). This is the oldest standard. DVI - This is an oval connection.. You can get DVI to VGA adaptors, and some video cards come with them. This will have a series of pins and a "+" cross pin connection on it. HDMI -- The coolest and typically includes sound for direct connection to HDTV. But your monitor may not have this type of port.
So if your looking for a card, look for one that is either PCI-E or PCI based on how old your PC is, and also look at what types of video output connectors it has.. VGA/DVI or HDMI. Most of the newer cards will have HDMI and DVI output with a VGA adaptor. But some don't.
Then... there is the case of a particular card having "issues" with the game you want. If you have time... pick a particular card, then google for "my favorite game" [replace the game with your game name" and the video card with the word problems... to see if anyone has had problems with that particular combo. (I never do that... :()

Getting a digital connection to my Monitor


I would right down the specs and go to a computer store or a radio shack and ask, usually they have them but they may also refer you to some other store if you ask them, if they cant help you that is. usually the stores that Buy and trad eand selll and have inventorys of used parts, will have alot of adapters on hand like VGA to DVI and what not.
