2232bw samsung DVI in problem

I just got a 2232bw Samsung monitor and went to go set it up. When it came time to put in the DVI Cable, it would not go in. It goes in on one side but the other side has just doesn't fit. When looking at the jack in the monitor, there are cutlike things where the red is that look like it is off center.
It will plug right into the computer. Do i need a new monitor or is it fixable

There is nothing broken, but you must become aware of the different standards in DVI connectors.

1)DVI-D which you have, does not have the 4 analog control pins around the alpha bar meaning it only works on digital devices.

2)DVI-A only has the 4 control pins and no bar, as well as a total of only 9-10 pins altogether. This is designed for analog only, and rarely see it anymore.

3)DVI-I stands for Interlaced, meaning it can work both ways, but will not fit in monitors that are set up for DVI-D because the analog pin sockets do not exist.

You can get more detailed by counting the pins in the rectangular area, if you use all 24 pins you have what is called a Dual-Link cable, so it can support resolutions over 1920x1280 if you have about 9 pins missing it is single-link and is limited resolution.

Try a DVI-D (Digital) Only cable, without the analog (right section). I´m basically talking about a DVI-D to DVI-D cable.

Screen flickering on windows 7 boot


This is more than likely an issue with the monitors themselves. Does this happen on the main monitor is you move the secondary cable over to it? What kind of monitors are you using, how old are they, and do you know the refresh rates on them?

Can your monitor AND PC put out that resolution??

I don't think your Dell and put that out, if it's an "old" machine.

"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
