Question about Computers & Internet
...This suddenly happened to me when I tried to play my XBOX 360, which uses VGA. Whenever I try pushing to "Source" button, it keeps switching back to Digital (DVI). The only way I can get to VGA mode is if there is a signal in DVI mode, which means I have to turn on my computer every time I want to play my 360.
Why is this all of a happening all of a sudden? I tried using the "Factory Reset" feature in the menu, and have even unplugged the power cable for at least 6 hours, to no avail.
I just bought the 22" Gateway Monitor and am Having similar problems.
Heres what I found out:
Check the recommended cable input \ outputs for your cards and monitor. I know this 22" says it needs a 24-Pin DVI-D Dual Cable, but works with the others.
I'm currently using a 18-Pin DVI-D Single and think that is the problem. My card supports DVI-I Single and Dual, so I would recommend, for myself, DVI-I Dual Link to make sure it has the max power and signal.
Check to see what cable you are infact using, and go to this website to get some info on DVI-Cables:
This is where I found out that I didn't have the cable the monitor required for max input, and might be the solution.
I will post back, but this should get your started.
