I honestly have no clue what to do, I been googling forever and none of them seem to be for me, so I decided to post here.
Ok so I bought a new GFX Card : EVGA GTX 560 Amazon.com: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 1024 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/Mini-HDMI SLI Ready Graphics Card, 01G-P3-1460-KR: Computers & Accessories
A new PSU to go with it SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT 650W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS1...
And I have a old ass DELL monitor that uses a VGA plug, like 10 years+ old.
My specs I think is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227339
- Phenom II X4 955(3.2GHz)
- 4GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 (1 GB)(Replaced)
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
SO My problem is I seated the graphics card, connected the PSU, bought Amazon.com: StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter, M/F (DVIVGAMF): Electronics
(StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter, M/F (DVIVGAMF)
and plugged that into the DVI port of my GTX 560, plugged in the 2 6-Pins, and plugged in my VGA Cable after the DVI adapter. Everything turns on fine but the monitor recieves no signal. I tried another VGA Monitor and it also said it couldn't detect a signal.
I HAVE TRIED:
Reseating the GFX multiple times
The old GFX Card & Monitor works fine
Replugging cables of Monitor, PSU and outlet
Using my brothers VGA Monitor and Adapter
Both DVI Ports
Please help! I would prefer not having to buy a new monitor and just use my old VGA monitor.
Thanks for reading.
