I recently decided to buy a new video card to upgrade (at least slightly) my old Radeon x300 series card. My old card had VGA and DVI outputs, the new one only includes DVI-I (It's a Radeon X800 xl) (It's new to me....okay?). The monitor has only a power connection and one for a VGA cable. I've purchased a DVI to VGA adapter for use with this. However, when I connect the monitor with the adapter through a DVI output, I'm unable to get any picture at all. The monitor behaves as if the computer is off (no signal?). I tried this with the old video card that works just fine with the VGA outputs, but not with the DVI ones, and with the new one as well. So it's not a driver or video card issue as far as I can tell. Is there something I'm missing in order to get this to work? From everything that I've read it seems that the adapter should just automatically do the trick. It is an older LCD monitor (it was new technology then!) so perhaps it's lacking the compatability to run with a dvi output? I haven't seen anything like this problem in any of the research I've done. The only other option would be that the adapter itself is faulty, but It had been tested right before it was purchased. If anyone has any Ideas they would be much appreciated. Thank you!
