G5 tower 1.8 ppc dvi interface video card to x2gen 22"

I have a new x2gen 22" monitor. When the machine trys to boot monitor says dvi mode but flashes over and over again never completing boot. Apple says third party problem. I sent the brand new monitor to x2gen. They said maybe interface problem. They returned the unit sent a new cable dvi to dvi which was not necessary my cable was new and checked out... but nice service on their part unit only comes with power and analog cables. X2gen returned the unit RMA within two days with photo output in dvi mode...monitor is fine. I am a graphic designer and analog mode works but doesnt cut it I can not even see the lines in a xl chart! Help! I think the problem is geforce fx5200 video card maybe VRAM64 and needing 128 is the problem. They suggested an upgrade for the card but don't think there is such a thing or is there? My osX is current 10.4.9 Thx...isn't always something now... and always the other manufacturers problem! Terry

I would suggest you upgrade the video card something like the card in this link! Please note it specifically states on the box that it is for Mac G5. You also need at least 512MB system memory and osX 10.3.6 or higher. Cheers & Good luck.

2 monitors installed, Each works well independently. when attached to this card, it boots off monitor 1 then after win 7 logo shuts off monitor 1 then monitor 2 takes over. Cannot use dual monitor feature?

Hello there. So you want to use 2 monitors at the same time? Well this is simple enough. Ok go into windows and right click your desktop. Go down to screen resolution. There is a dropdown there that will allow you to extend your display to 2 monitors. Select your desired mode from here and click apply. You should be good to go.

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.

Video Card not working.

Connect your monitor card into your origional monitor port. Boot to BIOS and disable the VGA port. Save and exit. After re-start, shut down and install the new AGP.

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)

There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando

Ati radeon 9600 video card

what you have the ATI card hooked up can you see the boot screen? If you can see that you might want to try going into safe mode and making sure your graphics settings aren't set beyond the capability of your monitor. If you can't see the boot screen then your card might be dead.
