I have a Gigabyte GV-N640OC-2GI graphics card with 2 monitors:
An older Asus LCD with VGA port only. This works fine, plugged into the graphics card VGA slot.
A Dell 1801FP monitor with a DVI-D port. (Got VGA too, but I have to use the DVI-D.)
I have a VGA to VGA cable with DVI-D adapters, so I tried to use them to turn my VGA to VGA cable to a DVI-D to DVI-D cable.
I attached one adapter to the monitor, and the other one to the card's DVI-D port, but it doesn't work. My Windows 7 doesn't recognise it. The NVIDIA Control panel neither. The screen stays blank too.
When I unplug the older Asus, and simply use the VGA cables and ports, it works, but I need both monitors.
I tried to unplug the Asus monitor and just use the DVI-D ports, but that doesn't work either.
Is the problem with the cable? Which cable do I need to make this monitor work on the DVI-D port?
