My normal computer had issues so I fired up my replacement computer. My tower only has dual DVI outs and I couldn't find my DVI cable for my monitor so I used a DVI-CGA adapter. Now I'm getting a bit of a blur issue on part of the monitor. It runs from top to bottom and about 2 inches wide in about the middle of the screen.

I'm suspecting it's due to the adapter as the monitor has run flawless until now. I was hoping to avoid spending the $60 for a DVI cable until I could find mine.

Any thoughts about the blur being because of the adapter or??

Thank you!!!

That effect shouldn't be caused just by using an adapter. It must be something wrong with a cable, or adapter itself.
With good quality video card, you shouldn't be seeing any difference at all.
With lesser quality video card, you may experience little bit worse picture quality, but it wouldn't create bad image on just some section of your screen.

Well I'm using the same cable I was using with the other computer and my video card is a 512mb eVGA NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT. The only thing new is that adapter. Maybe I need to find my my DVI cable, or spring the $60.00 for one.

It may be something wrong with the adapter then.
