Re: dvi output on sound card'


DVI connections only transfers video (it's not like HDMI). You can continue using your current soundcard to output to the LCD monitor.

With windows7 screen is small@1024/768 is ok if you use 1440/768 how can i use 1024/768 and get full screen 20 ' wide screen


If you have a Wide screen monitor it can only (look good) in a Wide screen resolution such as 1440x768.

1024X768 is the lower resolution, and it is for normal screen (square) monitors, not for wide screen monitors.

You cannot get a full screen at 1024X768 resolution with a Wide Screen Monitor.

Hope that Helps.

Nvidia F5200

You could try right-clicking your desktop and going to settings. There you need to select the other (grey or a 2 in it) monitor and select "extended desktop". If that doesn't help, check the monitor cable. (maybe try another one, you never know...)
If it's still not detected, you could look around the NVidia control panel (I myself have always had ATi graphics cards) for a "detect monitor" option.

What graphic card is compatible for my pc?? i have HP PAVILION, g3660d, 2 GB RAM, WINDOW VISTA home basic.I want to play games like Left 4 dead, COD 4....

Well... Windows Vista can be installed on anything. I'm not familiar with your particular PC, but there are two ends to the problem. A) Plug in to PC end. Here there are the PCI-bus, and PCI-E standards. PCI-E comes in many flavors, a tiny tiny connection (1 lane), and a wide connection (>1 lanes? don't remember 8?). Open your PC box and look at the slot closest to the CPU, that is typically the graphics card expansion slot. Take a picture (if you have a camera), note if this slot is "different" from the other slots... it is likey to be. Then you can google PCI-E and PCI connectors to see if you can match them up. If you have a *NEW* pc it's likely you have a PCI-E bus. This is the *faster* solution.
2) Card to monitor. There are multiple ports on many of the new PC graphics cards... from oldest to newest VGA - This is a DB-9 type connector... looks like a oval but is longer on one side than the other. (i.e. not a rectangle). This is the oldest standard. DVI - This is an oval connection.. You can get DVI to VGA adaptors, and some video cards come with them. This will have a series of pins and a "+" cross pin connection on it. HDMI -- The coolest and typically includes sound for direct connection to HDTV. But your monitor may not have this type of port.
So if your looking for a card, look for one that is either PCI-E or PCI based on how old your PC is, and also look at what types of video output connectors it has.. VGA/DVI or HDMI. Most of the newer cards will have HDMI and DVI output with a VGA adaptor. But some don't.
Then... there is the case of a particular card having "issues" with the game you want. If you have time... pick a particular card, then google for "my favorite game" [replace the game with your game name" and the video card with the word problems... to see if anyone has had problems with that particular combo. (I never do that... :()

hi , seems called a d'E/S cable which is proprietary - I would say you would have buckley's hope (little or no hope) of finding one
Boxed "New old stock" items of retail cards incl cable are still pricey at over $100

What you can do is try reseating your videocard and making sure there is a secure connection between the DVI slot and the monitor (no cables going underneath table legs getting pinched, etc.)

I would suggest you upgrade the video card something like the card in this link! Please note it specifically states on the box that it is for Mac G5. You also need at least 512MB system memory and osX 10.3.6 or higher. Cheers & Good luck.
