I just bought a new DVI type D to VGA adapter to use my tv as a screen for the computer I use for a media server. It doesn't seem to be working out of the box. My first thought was that the adapter was bad, but I wasn't sure if I needed to go into my video preferences on my computer and tell it I'm using DVI for my output or if this would be redundant. I have tested the cables, computer graphics card etc to make sure they all work. Thanks for any help!
Os is XP Pro, the video card isn't anything special, just whatever came built in to the IBM motherboard. TV is a Samsung Model number:TXP2670WHX/XAA
Well the output on the computer is VGA, that's why I bought the adapter, the TV has a DVI input. There is only one video output on the computer.
