i shall start from the beginning, went to clean my pc out, as normal, took out my dvi-i adapter, left it on the side....
my boy got hold of it (bless him), couple of pins missing, so i brought a new one off ebay for very cheap talking less than 2 quid (i know !), so while i wait i take out my 7900 GS to clean its fan as its not accessible while in tower.... so the new dvi-i comes , i put card back in, start up and looks ok till i get "mode not supported" on my lcd.. tried few times, no joy.
so card comes out, put vga into onboard, works fine, so monitor seems good. deleted nvidia drivers, switched off put card in, adapter, cables, start up then card installs itself, restart , all good so far, apart from old drivers and crap resolution.. i noticed in my device manager there was no "Monitor Tab", after a brief search , i updated and i now have a Monitor tab and have "Generic PnP monitor" in the section
Then i update to newest drivers, after i restart i get the message "Mode Not Supported" with H 75.0 hz / V 60.0 hz under it
i tried this with several drivers back to july 2008, still no luck, and tried all resolutions also tried it with my old crt monitor and i get a "frequency" message
so could this be the cheap ass adapter? , my card ?, bit to hard a clean and broke it ?
sorry for the long post, wanted to give all info possible
hope someone can help me out, thanks
