Question about ATI RADEON Graphic Card
I have 2 SGI CRT monitors and I am trying to get them to work as an expanded desktop. I have WinXP pro Sp3 with an Asus Motherboard and an integrated ATI X1200 graphics card with a VGA and DVI-D out. I have no problems with the direct connect VGA toVGA that is my #1 monitor, however, I cannot get the 2nd output( DVI-D) to produce any signal. THe Catalyst software sees the 2nd monitor but I cannot get the devices to talk or show in Device manager. I have the 2nd monitor routed through 2 adaptors - DVI-D to DVI-i and the DVI-I to VGA. I cannot locate a 2nd output adaptor/driver for this setup.
A DVI-D signal is digital (whereas DVi-I is digital AND analogue) and can never be converted into a VGA signal without using expensive hardware boxes that convert the signal. These though tend to lose quite a bit of the signal quality. If I were you I'd look for a monitor with a digital connection, because I'm afraid this isn't going to work.
I'm sorry your problem can't be fixed...
@DickcanFixit: Catalyst 9.4 is the most recent.

What you need is a DVI-D to VGA video converter. I would recommend to google Part nos. "SCA-DVI-ANA" or "SCA-DVI-ANA-UN".
