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

    Suspect either graphics card (new) or motherboard PCI(E) slot. PC works fine in original modes

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.

Plugged in my emachine LE1938 to my dell without the DVI cable, screen displays 'no signal'. Shouldn't the monitor work without the DVI cable?


The DVI cable transports the display signal from the video card to the monitor.

I think what Ron is asking is if you used a different cable to connect the monitor to the computer. (I'm assuming you used an old 15 pin monitor cable or whatever those old cables were?)

Without getting into your BIOS:

So on your computer, you probably have an onboard video card (a video card built into the motherboard itself), and a dedicated video card (probably where you're seeing the DVI out).

It may be possible that you have the on board video card (with the traditional connection) disabled, when the dedicated video card is plugged in.

This isn't rocket science, so don't worry. Phillips head screwdriver is all you need.

Pull the side panel off your computer (assuming it's a tower... if not, it's the top panel). Once you have it off, you'll see that video card plugged into a slot on the motherboard, with 1 phillips head screw holding it in place (inside, near the back, where the DVI port is).

Pull the screw, and the video card should come out. From there, the BIOS should recognize your card is missing, and thus revert to using the onboard video card.

Need driver download have new tower and lost CD for monitor X2GEN model MG19MY


Most monitors do not need additional drivers for them to function properly in Windows XP, Vista, and 7. If you are not able to set the monitors native resolution then look at your video card drivers. If these are not up to date, then you can see some very odd default resolutions.

Please check whether you are using a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) cable or VGA (Video Graphics Array) cable to the monitor.The monitor will adjust automatically to the requirements of the connected cable.From the question I think you had connected a DVI cable to the monitor.Make sure that there is no loose contact between the ports and the cable.Also make sure that the proper settings on the monitor are done for the DVI cable configuration.

Do you need a special driver for x2Gen 22 inch monitor with windows 7


You do not need drivers for monitor, just make sure you set the resolution output of your video card to the monitor native resolution and set the refresh rate to 60Hz. Make sure you do have win7 driver for your video card.

I want to get a new video card But..


For Motherboard interface:

mini tower version of the Optiplex GX520 appears to have one PCI Express Slot. other cases don't appear to have anything.

Check the photos on the link below to match up your form factor

For monitor, make sure you have a DVi port or something like that & that your card has a matching port or that you can get an acceptable adapter. If monitor not DV capable, HD video card will not help you much.
