Screen flickering on windows 7 boot

I have a nvidia 660 gtx and a dual monitor display with 2 samsung 2232 bw. I use a dvi-dvi to connect the main monitor and a hdmi-dvi to connect the second. When windows 7 is booting, the main monitor flickers in a very fast way (about 10-12 times per second) and then the screen goes black. Being unable to have access to the main screen of windows7 , I execute a cold restart pressing the restart button. After the system restarts, the screen flickers for about 10 seconds and after that everything is ok. Before this cable setup, I was using 2 dvi-dvi cables and I had the second monitor going black EVERY TIME I opened a window in it or dragging a window in it! I solved this problem by changing tho dvi-dvi cable with a hdmi-dvi, but the problem with the main monitor remains. If I use the display port of the 660gtx ( with a dp-dvi cable) to connect the main monitor sould solve the problem? I think that there is an issue about the type of the dvi cables I use (dvi-i, dvi-d, single or dual). Before a while, I was using a nvidia 550 gtx with the same problems. Can you fix it? Thanks!

This is more than likely an issue with the monitors themselves. Does this happen on the main monitor is you move the secondary cable over to it? What kind of monitors are you using, how old are they, and do you know the refresh rates on them?

Testimonial: "I use 2 samsung 2232 bw. I don't know how old are they, the maximum resolution is 1680 X 1050 at 60 Hz. When I swap the 2 cables, the problem remains. It is not the cable itshelf, I have tried three different dvi-dvi. I think if I could use the dp (display port) of the gpu with a dp-dvi cable to connect the primary monitor instead of using the dvi-dvi solution.Do you know if this setup works? I mean using the dp and hdmi ports of the graphic card instead of using the 2 dvi ports? Thanks !"

I've heard this card will support dual monitors but might need a firmware upgrade to do so. You can get the new BIOS here; http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/VGA/BIOS_DownloadFile.aspx?FileType=BIOS&FileID=12292 Hope this helps. Let me know. Dudester

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers

There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)

I can't connect an external HF199H monitor, on a 2007 MacBook 3,1 running Windows 7. Help??


ok so for clarification, you are using a MacBook w/ a dual boot to windows 7 Ultimate? and after the update from Vista it now is not detecting your external display.

If I am correct, your graphics card is most likely an NVidia chip set. Do some research and find your specific graphics card, go to the NVidia website and download the most up to date drivers for it and try again. If you have done this already, try emailing them and find out if your graphics card is compatible w/ windows 7 or if the driver was specifically designed for vista. That's where I would start.

Windows 7 has some neat little enhancements, one of them being how it lets you handle dual monitors. If you're adding a second monitor to your Windows 7 home or office PC, which is a very good idea, it's a breeze to configure.
There are actually two ways you can currently setup multiple monitors in Windows 7, either by using a keyboard shortcut or via the traditional system properties.
I really like the first method since it's new and is way easier than having to go into the Control Panel or anything else.
Simply press the Windows key and P (Windows + P) to bring up a quick menu of options.

Pretty neat! You can pick to show only the computer, make the second monitor a duplicate of the first, extend the desktop to the second monitor or turn off the first monitor and activate the second.
The second way is to right-click on the desktop and choose Screen resolution.

Now you'll see the familiar 1 and 2 to distinguish which monitor is which. There are several options and under Multiple Displays, you can choose from the same options as when you pressed Win + P.
setupmultiplemonitorswindows7_thumb.png
That's it! You can also change the orientation of the displays and change the resolution of each display. It's pretty straight-forward in Windows 7 and a lot easier! Enjoy!

Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?

You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \

Good Luck!

"No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable


Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.

Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.

1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card

Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary

2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable

At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display

3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard

set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel

If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )

At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop

If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port



No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )

If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.

If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"

Your LCD Display may need replacement

Mag monitor doesn't display bios post


I have no experience with the DVI links because such technology is still unavailable here in Argentina. We have DVI video cards but finding a suitable DVI monitor is another (long) story.
I think that your card (that has 2 DVI ports) is initializing one port first (the primary one) and then, when windows starts, it initializes the other and outputs video from both ports.
Try connecting the monitor in the other DVI port.
If your card has a VGA output, the VGA gets initialized first.
