Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor
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.
