Alright i'm having a problem here.
My monitor (19 inch widescreen Gateway) is having a problem displaying anything through the DVI port via a DVI cable
The monitor has VGA and DVI but i use the VGA to hook my Xbox 360 up to it.. and just reciently ive been beding the pins to my computer because i have to switch between the 360 and my computer.
I had the DVI cable to my computer and working before and had no problems... then i cant really remember when or why it stopped working...
So i've tried plugging it in before i turn it on and it just doesent detect anything
but then i also tried plugging it in when the computer was already booted into windows. And i hear the little DUN DUN! sound when you plug in a usb device or something of that sort.
But the monitor never actually displays anything...
Now what i cant understand is how the pc knows if its a DVI or VGA cable plugged into it
Because my computer is plugged into a VGA cable but it has a VGA to DVI Dongle and i'm thinking it would be the same...
Videocard - EVGA 7800gt 256mb (Has 2 Dvi ports)
Operating system - Windows XP home Sp2 32 bit
Oh and just in case you needed to know the DVI cable i have looks kinda like this
