Windows 7: W7 Nivida gts250 - not able to adjust screen resolution

Hi Par,

The thing is that if you plug your monitor into the GTS adapter, and then disable the adapter, your screen should go blank. It doesn't sound like that is happening. hence the confusion about the adapter.....

Are you able to take a photograph of the side of your PC, with the side panel removed so we can see exactly the layout of the two adapters,?

Sorry, I know its frustrating for you, but we will get there in the end.

It's on the GTS250 but when I plug it into that one the screen goes yellow so I am assuming it is only for a second monitor.

Thats the HDMI adaptor for the GTS - it works with a single monitor too. Thats what I have my monitor plugged into.

What is the silver connector between the blue one on your monitor cable, and the adapter its currently plugged into?

It's another HDMI connecter. The adapter converts the HDMI to fit my VGA cable I have connected to my monitor. Do you think an HDMI cable would make a difference? My monitor will take one.

Yes! You definately want HDMI if you can. Plug it in, then reboot.

Neither of the those ports are HDMI. They are DVI. HDMI looks more like a USB size.

I think so. Its posisble the card only delivers higher output through the HDMI connection, but I can't be 100% sure. You definately want to use HDMI if you can.

Correction : Hopalong is 100% correct. Its DVI. My mistake, I always get confused between them. You still want to use DVI if you can.
