I bought a computer monitor (MAG 22" LED H2201L-NS 1920X1080 2MS + DVI-D), and I have a laptop that only has a vga connection and an HDMI connection. bearing in mind that I want to connect it to my laptop through the HDMI port and since I had already an HDMI cable which I used for my PS3, I bought an HDMI to DVI-I adapter (the only one in store).
The problem is that it doesn't get detected by my laptop through the HDMI cable (no signal). So, what am I missing here? Is it a problem with the adapter? Should I bring an HDMI to DVI-D adapter... (This is not the issue, I guess, since the analog signal will be discarded by the monitor, and it will read only the digital one).
And also I haven't tried it on my PS3 yet but will it work ... or will it have the same PC problem (my PS3 died on me so I sent it to get fixed. YLOD problem)?
(Here is the new issue that I discovered. It is that the HDMI port only shows it is connected, and I can use it when the vga port is connected to the same monitor. Why? The same happens on both Windows and Ubuntu, but when I remove the vga cable keeping the HDMI port connected, it says HDMI1 disconnected using the xrandr.
