I built my 2nd system about 5 months ago using this Gigabyte motherboard with onboard grapics: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
The DVI-D port suddenly stopped working - Its been fine since I built the rig, but after a power-outage shut the system down one day last week I no longer get a signal from the DVI-D port.
I do get a signal from the D-SUB port and am using it, but -
Whats the diff between DVI-D and D-SUB ? Not sure if its my imagination but the graphics don't seem as sharp using the D-SUB port.
Gigabytes tech support has been no help so far - if they offer to replace the board, is it worth doing just to be able to use the DVI-D port?
Would I need to re-install the OS (Windows 7) & everything else?
The system isn't used for gaming, so the onboard graphics have been fine for everyday use.
