I recently bought a new monitor for my PC... and I have a big problem.

I connected 2 monitors to my graphic card: Geforce GTX 1050. One with HDMI and the second one with a DVI adapter. They are both detected by the computer but the second monitor is blank/black.

The monitor that is not working is a Samsung S24F350

When I plug the HDMI into the second monitor he displays everything just fine but with the DVI he is only detected and not displaying...


Is your Display displaying "Check Signal Cable" or anything like that?

If not, seeing as your graphicscard is detecting a monitor my best guess is that you have to switch your monitor source to analog/D-SUB.

It also could be that you are using a wrong DVI-Cable/Adapter (Please check if your DVI-Cable is Dual Link). (I'm not 100% sure on that point).

If you want a easy non-fix solution, you could buy a Displayport-HDMI Cable and use your monitor that way.

  • Can you please help me to fix it? Maybe do you have discord? My discord: VorT3eX#2722 – Alex Dec 16 '18 at 21:51
