It seems that DVI port on GeForce fx 5200 does not work properly I also had a problem with this card, but I tried to connect this card to the samsung 245b with resolutuion 1920x1200 and this card could not give me the correct picture it was stretched out the monitor borders, but the analog (VGA) output works ok, prhaps in your case new drivers will solve the problem. I going to change this card for newer one. I found on some forum that FX5200 has a bug with DVI output. And wide and big resolutions can be displayed incorrectly, and it is not a surprise when the card was made such resolutions was only in plans for middle class computers.

How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M

Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector;

2) DVI;

3) HDMI;

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

Syncmaster 940 mw says 'digital' on the front but I cannot receive digital tv after the switchover. Do I need a set top box?


Yes, You will need a digital decoder box. The tuner in the Samsung 940MW TV does not decode digital signals. The digital input that you are seeing is for the DVI video input on the back that you use when you connect the unit to a DVI port on a computer. Any of the digital decoder boxes from Radio Shack, Walmart or Best Buy type stores will work just fine.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Have a ASUS VW222U LCD monitor and works fine with the DVI input using a Macbook. Now I want to connect the VGA port to a ACER netbook and all I got is 'No signal'. The on screen menu don't work if no...

That is because the Netbook has its own screen. You have to go into Settings for the Display Adapter and choose Multiple Displays, click Detect and add the External Monitor.

Yes you can. But what kind of Samsung is it? Most modern Samsung come with HDMI or DVI port which you can plug right into the corresponding DVI or HDMI port on your PC. If your PC only has VGA, then your Samsung would need a VGA also. If the Samsung TV is just a TV, I saw an adapter on the daily deals on meritline yesterday to convert VGA from your PC to analog signal and it was only like 22 bucks. There's multiple ways to get this working.

How do you connect LG W2261 VP Monitor to HP Pavilion 6310uk Desktop

The computer has VGA, DVI-I (dual link) and HDMI ports. The monitor has VGA, DVI and HDMI but only came with a VGA cable. Some computers have recently come with shielding covering all of the ports except the one that is currently live. Thus, check your hardware; the computers I've seen with only one active port, the HDMI port was active before resetting the video options. So get an HDMI cable (it will provide the best signal in addition). If the DVI-I port is currently live, you should get that cable as well and then change the settings to enable the HDMI port.

I hope this helps.

(you do not need to get the super-expensive cables; the low end ones will be fine. However a single link DVI cable is not the same as a dual link cable; sometimes using the wrong cable leads to no signal to the monitor.)

I have this monitor hooked to my PC ATI 7500 graphics card with a DVI cable. When the PC initially boots up, the monitor display is blank - it does not display the boot-up messages until the MS Windows...

This is normal. Your monitor has a VGA hook in for regular definition. What it is doing, the monitor always by default looks for the VGA hook first. On my desktop it does the same thing until it finds a signal on the DVI.

DVI won't work

WOW! I have that monitor too on one of my systems!

Strange thing is it HATES the SVGA connection ~ but works FINE with the DVI... wish I could tell you why?

I've tried a array of 'new drivers' but none help... STRANGE thing too is OTHER monitors work FINE (with the VGA port) so I'm fairly confident it's not that...

I CAREFULLY inspected the pins on the male connectors to assure none are pushed back into the connector body and tried new cables too... still NO GO?

PLEASE let US know if you found a solution!

"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
