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.

Seems that you may have the wrong type of video selection theres a button for auto sensing the type of connection. if your video cable is blue then you have an analog connection, white video cable is a digital connection you just need to ensure that the monitor is set to the proper selection.

Samsung T220 monitor hook up to new macbookpro-how-pc driver only-help


Hello,

I think you're using the adapter in reverse. The adapter that changes from VGA to DVI but not the other way. You should plug the adapter into the DVI out on the macbook and then plug the VGA end of the cable into the monitor. If the monitor has a DVI input then you should be using a DVI to DVI cable to hook it up.

Once you have the cable plugged in you'll need to enable dual monitors or switch to external monitor on your macbook. Don't worry about the driver's cd, they are not necessary to make the monitor work on your mac (or on a PC for that matter).

There are two great instructions on how to do this, just google for "macbook switch to external monitor"

One here.

Second one here.
