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
