    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    Thanks for your answer. The test I carried out for DP to DVI-D port is on a win 7 machine, thus it seems the operation system itself is not an issue. One thing I noticed with that machine is if I go control panel/display/change display setting/detect I immediately see three boxes which should...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    It seems, after quite some hassle, I did come back to your original suggestions. Sorry that I couldn't do so earlier, but frankly speaking, I couldn't have fully followed your instructions and don't know why they are relevant (still don't understand why a motherboard would matter), thus I had...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    I just tested the whole cable of Displayport to DVI-D dual link ports I have with me on another dell computer, and it works perfectly. This seems its not the fault of the cable, but either the video driver, monitor driver or whatelse? Can you help me to continue debugging the next step? I have...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    I have done a bit more, but still not successful, actually the screen is black with no display at all. I just cannot understand it, can anybody could possibly explain to me what might be the issue. It seems my computer has a displayport. So I purchased an active converter from displayport to...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    Ok, let me press on a bit more. It seems I get three ports on my computer, VGA, eSATA and DisplayPort. I don't know whether eSATA and DisplayPort also output video signal. Can anybody make certain to me that one of them can send out video signal just like VGA? To link to DVI-D dual link port on...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    It seems I have made certain my monitor has female DVI-D dual link port, while I have purchased a female DVI-I dual link to male VGA connector. Can I purchase a DVI-D dual link cable to ensure my monitor to work with the computer's VGA output signal? I guess it works but just to make sure before...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    Could you please explain to me possible issues I had run into? The video card itself does not support DVI or it's the VGA to DVI to blame? As I can only see a VGA port on my computer, I had supposed maybe I hadn't get the right VGA to DVI converter while the driver for the video card is fine as...

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    Thanks for your help, it is intel(R) Q45/Q43 Express Chipset I cannot find driver for the monitor, thus it should use the generic driver. I just found from the manual seems to say it is DVI-D connector. In this case, what should I do?

    a converter from DVI to VGA work for win 7?

    My monitor comes with DVI and VGA interface and I want to use both slots to connect to two computers with only VGA connection. I use a converter from DVI to VGA and connect my monitor to one of the computer (win 7), but when the computer starts, nothing displays on the monitor. Did I do anything...

    will win 7 recognize partitions created by win xp?

    Thanks, the best is indeed to back up the whole d drive and then install win 7 on c, but I don't have a backup hard disk large enough to hold them, so I might have to take the risk. More specifically I was concerned whether the file tree structure or the entrance of d drive has had any traces...

    will win 7 recognize partitions created by win xp?

    my win xp dies and am planning to install win 7. I will install it on my c disk and erase the dead xp but leave the existing d disk created by win xp as it is. My concern is whether win 7 can read disk d just like win xp does. This is quite important as d disk is my data disk and I cannot afford...
