Sorry, but what do you mean with mane (can't find a correct translation to dutch)

Do you mean advantage, or do you mean what you can do with it?

Normally a DVI to VGA adapter can be used to connect a display with a VGA connector to a DVI port. If you have 2 ports VGA and DVI, maybe you can connect 2 displays to your pc. It's great working with multiple displays, making your desktop twice the size. For example: you can open your mail program in one display and your web browser in the other.

Can i connect my tv thru a dell optiplex745


Does your TV have a VGA port? If not it most likely has an HDMI port. Does your PC have an HDMI out on the video card? If not then you will need a VGA to HDMI adapter, OR a DVI-D to HDMI adapter, depending on if your GPU output is VGA or DVI-D. Then you will need an HDMI cable to go from the TV to the adapter.

How to install external monitor to laptop if laptop does not support 15 pin plug from monitor


If your laptop does not have the 15 pin plug (VGA Port) then you will need to get some type of adapter that will make the monitor work. You probably have a DVI monitor.

You just need to make sure you get the correct type of adapter and make sure the ends that plug into the computer are correct such as male or female. For example think of the human male and female body parts when you look at adapters. The vga port on the computer is called a Female port, but the piece that plugs into it is called Male. It's the same with DVI ports.

I think you need a VGA Male to a DVI Female so below is a link to one and for $2.54 from Cable Wholesale.

Below is a picture of what it looks like.

Dell optiplex gx 270 is not giving display


If you are not getting display for your Dell Optiplex GX 270, the issue may be one of three possible causes:

* The VGA cable connection between the Dell PC and the monitor, may not be seated in the VGA port correctly. To resolve this, just make sure the VGA cable is seated completely in the VGA port of the Dell computer and that also the Power cord from the monitor to the power source (i.e wall socket, power strip, surge protector, etc.) is seated securely.

* There may be an issue with the Video card in the Dell PC

* Or there may be an issue with the motherboard for this model of Dell.

To check to determine if the latter is what you are experiencing with this issue, please feel free to review this Dell Support link: Dell Optiplex GX 270 Display issue.

If you have more questions regarding this information, please feel free to reply back to this post.

Monitor compatibility


It will be compatible with the system, just keep on thing in mind, whatever resolution you set your computer at you may have to keep the ratio aspect active so that way the screen looks properly displayed.

Monitr compatibility


That will plug right in. Your existing monitor has a VGA connection, which matches what you have on this monitor (where it plugs in on the back of the computer you will find a blue connector). Just put this one in it's place.

The industry is moving to DVI, which is a long white connector, but monitors are still coming with the VGA connection anyway. This monitor is DVI capable which means it will be great for your next computer, but you will need to buy the DVI cable separately (not today, but when you eventually get a new computer).
