Question about Computers & Internet
I'm assuming "it" is the monitor rather than the video card, and that you are using some flavor of windows as your operating system.
1. Digital vs Analog mode is determined by the cable input plug on the monitor that use. Your cable from the computer to the monitor must be a DVI cable, and must connected to the DVI plug on your monitor. It must also be getting a digital signal from the video card, so must be connected to the DVI output plug on the card. You can use an adapter to convert from DVI video card output plug to an analog cable, but not the reverse. For a digital monitor, you must have a DVI cable. DVI connectors come in different flavors, so be sure to read specs for the video card and the monitor to choose the correct one.
2. As already suggested, it also sounds like you may not have installed the driver and video control software that came with the card. Windows will attempt to install a new video card. If you don't stop it, you can get what you see. So boot the computer in safe mode which should get you some kind of display, then install the software from the CD that came with the board. reboot, Once you are running, check for software updates on the support web site.
