Setting monitor's mode: Analog / Digital?

Two weeks ago, I bought a new LCD monitor, LG L1932TQ. When I finished installing the driver, a message appeared saying that the driver was installed successfully for the monitor LG L1932TQ (Analog). Also when I go to the Display Properties, there is written (Analog) as well. Does that mean that I can choose to work in either Analog or Digital mode? If so, how can I change it to Digital?

Thanks in advance,

The terms Analog/Digital refer to the type of connection you have between the PC graphics card and the monitor. Many LCD monitors have two types of connector. One is the standard vga connector as used by all low-end and budget graphics cards and on-board graphics chips. The other (if provided) is called a DVI connector (Digital Video Interface) which has the potential to provide a 'cleaner' and purer image.
However, to use the DVI connection on the monitor you must also have a DVI connector on your graphics card (only the more expensive graphics cards have them) and, of course, you must use a DVI cable instead of the standard VGA cable.
