Some motherboards disable her own graphics output when a Graphics Card is installed, like in your case. It is highly recommended to use the output from the graphics card to receive full graphics potential from your workstation. Check if your monitor has other connectors available like the ones on your graphics card, DVI-D (left), HDMI (center) or DisplayPort ...

Check the following. - is the graphics card properly seated? (turn the computer off when checking) - are you connecting the monitor to the GPU ? - check the monitor is connected to the default output port on the graphics card. (or, get two monitors and connect them both). I suspect you have everything working correctly, but haven't plugged the monitor ...

It looks like you have a graphics card installed there. I think that your PC is not outputting to VGA (15 pin) because you have a graphics card, you should plug your monitor into your graphics card. Side note: DVI is better quality than VGA and your graphics card has a HDMI port on it. If your monitor has HDMI on it then you should use that instead, you can ...

Check if you have other video ports. Some machines have on board VGA that is disabled when a graphics card is plugged in. (Edit: I see you have video card HDMI and Display ports. HDMI cables are fairly easy to come by and chances are you already have a TV with HDMI, try it first)

More than two display outputs does not necessarily mean you can have more than two displays. In the case of this card though - you can. Do you have a EyefinityDongle for your card? For use of 3 or more displays with AMD Eyefinity technology, you require a DisplayPort-capable panel or an AMD Eyefinity validated dongle. Else it will not work. See AMD ...

I see you just selected an answer... However, if you are going to spend that much money on a DVI Booster, why not just buy a laptop or tablet? You can hook the laptop to the monitor and have much more control. In a addition to that, the laptop or tablet is portable.

Yes. https://www.google.com/search?q=DVI+20m+cable shows a web search found this extender kit using a multimode fiber optic cable (thinner than a Cat5/6 cable), and many more DVI splitter cables were found.

Short answer: No. Longer answer: The DVI spec doesn't specifically state a max length for a single cable, but it does suggest that 4.6m (15 ft) is generally the longest you'll get that will still support resolutions up to 1920x1200 pixels. If you want longer than that you'll need to look into a DVI Booster, which by the looks of the first Google hit I ...

HDMI and DVI-D are electrically compatible. The main exceptions for regular computer use are that HDMI supports audio (which DVI doesn't, and your laptop's output may or may not provide), and DVI allows for an analog link (which HDMI doesn't). Neither should be a significant issue in your case. It also appears that some graphics cards might not be able to ...

According to Wikipedia: Some DVD players, HDTV sets, and video projectors have DVI connectors that transmit an encrypted signal for copy protection using the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) protocol. Computers can be connected to HDTV sets over DVI, but the graphics card must support HDCP to play content protected by digital ...
