How to switch from analog to digital mode


Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.

Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.

If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps:
1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.

2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure.
Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.

3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC.
Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI.
Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.

Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.

Why does its say no HVI Connection


DVI is a Digital Video Input/Interface. I think what happened is you have changed your inputs on your monitor but that is only if your monitor has several different types of inputs. Check for that and if so then switch your input on your monitor.

Why my Pc monitor showing Input not supported?


There are several inputs that a monitor can handle depending if it's capable of doing so. For example, just like TV, if you want to watch a DVD, you have to change the input to Video and going back to TV, just choose TV input. The same way for computer monitors. If the monitor supports VGA, DVI, HDMI and others, you have to select the right input depending of the type of Video cable connected from your tower to the monitor. If you it is connected via VGA, choose VGA input. If the cable is HDMI, select HDMI. That will let your monitor switch from one input to the other..

Hope that works for you. -
I'll appreciate the feedback and the thumbs up.
Thanks.

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

Acer AL2216W 22" LCD monitor. DVI input apparently


Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

My viewsonic mo9nitor says analog not digital on


To clarify, you know that analog is referring to the VGA 15 pin video input, and digital is referring to the DVI video input, right? You can't have the digital video unless you use the DVI input, which requires a DVI output from your computer (and a DVI cord of course).
If you already knew this and you mean that it won't switch over to your DVI, then there could be several problems. Most of them being with your DVI signal source (computer). Try booting the PC with ONLY the DVI cord attached between the PC and the monitor. If you have a VGA cord plugged into either, UNPLUG IT FROM BOTH ENDS.

I need help setting up the DVI input.


Hi,

There are two ways to do this.

First and simplest is to simply shutdown the pc, disconnect the analog from the back of your PC and connect the DVI cable to the PC and monitor. When you turn it back on the PC will detect and switch to the DVI.

Second, and better to compare. Connect both sets of cables and go into your display settings, then select advanced options. You should see a GeForce tab in the advanced menu. On that tab there is a multi monitor display setup. Set it to mirror to both screens and apply.

Once it's set switching inputs on the monitor SHOULD work. The problem that makes it a "should" is that both the monitor and the video card have the ablility to sense a connection. So, even with mirroring setup you may have to use the first method as you can't have both connected and operational at the same time.

Give these a try, if you're not sure how to get into the display settings, comment back here with your windows version and I will give you a step by step
