Philips UltraWide 298x4Q does not start with DVI cable. Is because a proper video card is missing?

I bought Philips Brillance Multiview UltraWide 298x4Q model. I have a new computer with integrated video card. The monitor does not start with DVI cable when the computers starts (it says "no video input"). I have to start the computer with a Sony TV with HDMI connection, after that I connect the DVI cable to the Philips monitor, and surprise: I have video signal on it. What I have to do to have my monitor opened once with the computer? It may be related with the fact that I can not set the image resolution to the monitor native resolution (2560x1080)? Can be this because I don't have a special video card on my computer? There is a video card that you recomand me?

Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.

Hi,

I got the chat , but some how it got disconnected.
But i would like to help you in this aspect.
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and supports transmission of both audio and video in high fidelity.

First make sure these things,

Both your computer and your TV will need to support HDMI interface.
It's quite a recent thing in PC graphics cards, so you may have to resort to S-Video, DVI or VGA for the video, plus a 3.5mm stereo cable (or the optical TOSLINK equivalent) for the sound.

Let know your comments and i will follow up with the suggestions.
Thanx for using fixya,
Good luck.

2nd monitor does not work with DVI to VGA converter cable. My video card has VGA and DVi ouputs.


The problem could be in the adapter to the video card. There are different types of DVI connections. If the adapter does not have the proper set of pins then the card will not recognize that a monitor is connected at that port. Monitors themselves have no bearing on whether a single or dual monitor set up will work or not. Digital Visual Interface Follow this link, it may help you determine if the adapter you are using is correct for the graphics card.

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.

Im using asus engts250 dk/htdi/512m dd3,last sunday when i start my pc the screen was all black but i listen the sound that the pc was already in desktop but the screen still black.help me


1. Kindly check the power cable and the video cable mount it properly. if this is not the problem or the power led of the LCD is lit, skip this step. 2. Try swapping the DVI cable to the other DVI header.
In my opinion the video card is not defective, as you have said. your PC already booted all the to desktop, a defective video card would boot to desktop without display. it will boot with artifacts or the PC will hang because of the defect.
Kindly give feedback if I helped you. Thank you for posting.

Connectivity card from montior to CPU is different than other PCs, in back side of the monitor its showing to type VGA and other one DVi connector, In my CPU i dont have the slot for the DVi connector,...


DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

How do i connect advent pc to philips hdtv. do i need to change settings?


well not really, you need to buy the proper cable depending on the inputs of your tv, it may have the standar VGA connection as the standar pc monitor.

DVI to VGA cable
DVI to DVI
HDMI to DVI
HDMI to HDMI

after you have the proper cable just plug it, and turn it off, disconnect the standar computer minitor and turn it back on. the computer will set the input signal from the tv by itself.

thats for the video, for the audio you need a different cable

3.5 mm to RCA (white and red cable)
3.5 mm to 3.5mm headphonejack cable
but if you are using the HDMI to HDMI you don't need a sound cable.

There will be a big difference in video quality between HDMI and S-Video. If you happen to have a DVD player that uses HDMI you can upconvert your movies to 1080i if your DVD player allows it. The only problem that you might run into is your audio. HDMI has audio built into the cable and DVI does not, with the HDMI to DVI cable you are going to have to find an alternate source for your audio to travel through. If you are looking for video quality get the HDMI to DVI cable.
