I have a nVidia Quadro2 MXR/EX video card which works fine on the analog input but when you use the digital input the screen sometimes flashed at startup and then goes blank. If you move the mouse,...

There are a few things that come to mind here. Number one is to try a different and known functioning DVI cable. Maybe see if you can recreate the problem simply by wiggling the dvi cable. If there are any splitters/adapters, remove them and plug the cable straight from the video card to the display. Make sure the display is set to digital input mode. When you are using the digital cable, make sure to completely remove the analog cable. See if this problem happens outside the operating system (such as in the system bios, if it does, this indicates a hardware issue). Finally, the digital input on the monitor could be having an issue, try a different monitor or try this monitor with digital input from another system.

Will my 64mb GF2 support dvi and / or hdmi connection (I want to get a flat panel monitor)

Not directly......but no worries!

All hope is not lost with just the VGA out on your card!

First, every flat panel monitor I have ever seen has a VGA input, so your GeForce2 card will still work!

VGA is still the top analog signal standard for computers. I am writing this with my on-board NVIDEA GeForce, connected to a Viewsonic VA2226w flat panel monitor using VGA and set at a resolution of 1680X1050!

Almost forgot..... just ignore the "TV Out" on your card.... this is old school and will give you nowhere near the quality you will get from VGA.... it was meant as a "crowd pleaser" to allow people to connect to their old school big screen TV sets.

Get the flat panel display... you will find out that it will work just fine with your VGA connection.

VGA connection works, DVI does not

Everything seems perfectly normal...

When you connect the computer to the monitor via an analog VGA cable, you get signal on the analog input.
When you connect them via a DVI cable, you feed the monitor's DIGITAL input, so the monitor doesn't get any signal on it's analog input, and informs you about it.
You have to select the digital input from the monitor's On Screen Menu, and then start the computer up - you should see the picture OK.
Also remember to set the display resolution on your computer to match the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor - this will give you optimum picture quality. In case of VA712B it will be 1280x1024.
Good luck and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

Cannot get second monitor output to work on ATI Radeon X1200

A DVI-D signal is digital (whereas DVi-I is digital AND analogue) and can never be converted into a VGA signal without using expensive hardware boxes that convert the signal. These though tend to lose quite a bit of the signal quality. If I were you I'd look for a monitor with a digital connection, because I'm afraid this isn't going to work.

I'm sorry your problem can't be fixed...

Blank screen using Vista x64 with Nvidia Forceware Drivers 8600GT

Most like the sound card you have is not compatible with Windows Vista. You need to check the manufacturers website to see if there is any patch for Windows Vista
