I have been broke and on a laptop for several years. Solutions: lower the refresh rate Lowering the screen refresh rate lowers the DVI pixel clock which makes it much easier to transmit the digital image through the cable. The screen was still completely blank. It isn't recognized at all.
And yet, sometimes you get a blank screen running in DVI digital mode when powering up. Unfortunately, some monitors have less-than-stellar EDID data.

One DVI transmitter is often better than the other so you should try all of the DVI outputs. I was using Debian Squeeze, that used a kernel version that, apparently, did not support my graphics card. I looked at the manual and theres no mention about this though.
You can access that option using the on-screen-display for the monitor. I wish I knew where but at least it's gone! That's more likely than the DVI monitor not being able to display it. Dvi-d Not Working Thank you everyone!

You can troubleshoot those by swapping in known-good parts. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/difference-between-vga-and-dvi-cables-for-monitors-537592/ Old problem #3: Okay, so I have my monitor plugged into my graphics card, and it is recognized as main graphics card.
There's supposed to be a DVI to VGA adapter included with your 4870. Dvi Output Not Working If the video card fails to get the EDID data from the monitor then Windows may (I'm not 100% sure) fall back on the .INF file which is currently selected. This is why when you upgrade parts or insert GFX cards on your rig can cause static elcetricity that destroys the rig (motherboard and could also destroy everything that's inserted on DVI troubleshooting: solutions Solutions: update your display drivers The "update your display drivers" dance is popular for a reason: it often works.

Dvi No Signal Asus VGA connectors and links convey simple signs while DVI can convey both simple and advanced.

I tried to disable the Onboard Graphics as RoasterMan said but I didn't have that option, so I went on the device manager and activated the video adapter that I had Solutions: install a monitor .INF file All modern monitors can provide EDID data to the video card which describes the capabilities of the monitor. If you've got a blank screen in Windows that you can't seem to get rid of then it's probably worth your trouble to try to track down a .INF file for DVI is more current and offers better, more keen presentation contrasted with VGA. Dvi Monitor Not Detected
I don't seem to be having or foreseeing any other major problems. With some video cards the open collector clock line looks more like a sawtooth pattern than a digital signal. Please Log In WITH FACEBOOK WITH GOOGLE OR Username / Email Password Log In Don't have an account? Do hope so.
If you have a corrupted image then using reduced blanking reduces the pixel clock without reducing the screen resolution or refresh rate. Dvi-d No Signal Reducing the cable length can reduce the capacitance enough to make the EDID readable.

A pullup resistor pulls the line high if nothing is driving the line low. It also did not recognize my monitor properly as it was listed as "Unknown", the only rotation option was "Normal" and the refresh rate was "0 Hz" (although I'm having no I have it set to enabled. Dvi Vs Vga Gaming I don't understand, I have the Card plugged into the PCI Express x16 slot.
And I wouldn't be a fan of opening it up while it's running. And I have it plugged into the power I believe sufficiently. Anyways, fill them up >.> So far: PCIe from PSU + molex-PCIe = can't boot molex-PCIe = card doesn't work but can boot with the card in PCIe from PSU + I worry that I could have a dead graphics card.BBCode Old avatar and sig retired for now. #36 Sep 11, 2010 7:15 PM harmann Offline Joined: May 2010 Posts: 477
The Home main entertaiment and productivity environment is, now, very strongly, put in consideration. If Windows is visible then it's probably not a hardware problem because the old, slow VGA mode puts way less strain on the DVI transmitter, cable, and receiver than any mode Some LCD-TVs which are supposed to be compatible with computers through a DVI connection understate their maximum resolution in the EDID data. Solutions: use reduced blanking Reducing the DVI pixel clock makes it much easier to transmit the digital image through the cable.
I doubt that any of my old computers are near built for such a thing.BBCode Old avatar and sig retired for now. #40 Sep 11, 2010 7:34 PM harmann Offline Nope!

If you have a dual link video card, a dual link monitor, and a single link cable, then the single link video modes will work properly and the dual link modes Use reduced blanking - This reduces the pixel clock which may fix the corruption.
