I have Windows 7 x64. I have two monitors plugged into my GTX760 Ti graphics card ( one through DVI & one through VGA) the DVI monitor is displaying (which is a Samsung) but the VGA (which is a Dell) is not. I know the monitor works since It displayed when I plugged the DVI into it, but when the VGA plugs in it doesn't display even when it's the only monitor plugged in. When the Dell monitor is unplugged it say's "no signal" when I plug it in it just goes black whith the yellow light on the power switch and when I press the setting button it says " 2: Digital input, In power save mode, press any button on the keyboard or move mouse". 

    This is a new VGA cable and I've tried multiple converters. Any help would be appriciated, Thanks,

You say you have used mulitple converters. Are you using some kind of DVI to VGA converter? Is there a VGA port on the graphics card?

Your graphics card by default routes video through the DVI port, you need to go into your BIOS (system setup) and switch video to your onboard video card which will route video through the VGA port


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

There's a HDMI, VGA and DVI port on the graphics card. Before I was trying to use a DVI to VGA converter, but now I have a VGA cable that plugs directly into the graphics card.\

 

 

Your graphics card by default routes video through the DVI port, you need to go into your BIOS (system setup) and switch video to your onboard video card which will route video through the VGA port

I have a AMD Fx-6300-Six-core processor, I looked through the BIOS and didn't see anything like that, any idea what it would be under?

Something I forgot to mention, weather it matters or not, I have my Television hooked up to my graphics card through HDMI with no problems, but it's plugged out for now till I get the Dell monitor working.

It will be called PCI graphics, PC internal, AGP or something similar.

See if your Dell monitor's menu has a selection to change between DVI and VGA. If you do not have that, try resetting the monitor while the VGA cable is plugged in. There should be a reset selection on the monitor's menu.

I made a bit of mistake, apparentally both cables are DVI, the Samsung has a DVI-I and the Dell has a DVI-D. I looked at my graphics card, but are both a bit different.

 

 

This is the one plugged into my Samsung: DVI-I has 4 prongs

This is the one plugged into my Dell: DVI-D has no prongs

Well it's working now and I don't even know why XD. I unplugged it to test on another computer and it worked, so I plugged it back into my computer and it worked, I don't know if it was a loose wire or the cable wasn't put in correctly, It's a bit of a tight space behind my monitor, but It's working just fine now and I'm happy. Thanks guys!  :thumbup2:
