Video Card DVI Comaptibility with new HP w2207 Monitor?

Can anyone explain why this senario works:
I connected the DVI output from a older Nvidia GeForce4 MX 32 Video Card in a PowerMac G4 (OS X ver 10.4.11) to the DVI input to a new HP w2207 monitor. I turned booted the computer and had no issues.

From the specs on the card, I'm only suppose to be able to get max 1280 X 1024 digital resolution. Yet, when I check the settings for the display on the computer and monitor they both show the operating resolution is at the recommended 1680 X 1050 which seems plausible based on the quality of the display out.

But, how can this be?

Thanks,

Steve

The reason is most likely an updated driver. When the card was first put out it came with a certain driver but since that time it has most likely been updated which now allows the card to run at the higher resolution. I have fixed problems where an older card wont run a specific resolution and updating the driver has sometimes fixed that.
If all works well for your needs, you got lucky that a driver had been updated which is cheaper than replacing your card.

I loaded Windows 7 and now when I turn on the computer, the monitor says DVI input no input signal and goes to sleep. Can you help?


Do you have the correct driver loaded? Are you using DVI output on the computer? Is there a VGA output? If so, try using a VGA cable while you troubleshoot the video issue.

I want to connect a HP w2207 monitor to a HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC. What is the best way to do this?


Your HP w2207 monitor has support for both VGA and DVI inputs. This therefore means that you can connect your HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC via either of these two connectors.

VGA is the blue coloured port on the rear of your monitor.
DVI is the white coloured rectangular port located on the rear of your monitor.

DVI is the better connection of the two as it is a digital connection, so use this one if you can, alternatively you can use the blue coloured VGA cable to connect your monitor to your computer.

It all depends on which output, either DVI or VGA is found on your Computer. Remember VGA is the Blue coloured port and DVI is the blue coloured port.

All the best!

What type cable do I need to connect the monitor to a hp xw4600 computer?


An out of the box HP xw4600 has a NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 video card which uses a DVI cable. You have to make sure your monitor supports DVI. A WHITE connector is for DVI while a BLUE connector is for VGA. Some monitors have both while many older models only support VGA.

Monitor display no signal message


Hi. Check the cables if it is firmly connected to the video ports. If nothing happens, try removing and reinstalling the video card then reconnect the cables. It works wonders!!!

Get a PCI or VGA video Card!

I'd recommend at least somethin like a

nVidia GeForce 7300 GT (256mb) Video Card
You can get one for dirt cheap on Newegg.com
Or your local PC store/Repair shop.

The Problem you are having is your Video Card Driver isn't the correct one, or it's got issues...
You should get a better video card.....yours might be onboard or really low-end rated.

FYI -

Pre-Manufactured PCs generally ****..... I build WAY better PCs for less.

HPs ****, but not as bad as a Dell (Dell does make the best pre mf 'd Servers which is ironic!)
but the worst pre mf'd PC I've ever fixed was a GATEWAY........

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep


Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:
  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.

Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not work


This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.

This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.
