Here's the situation as it stands.
Two VGA-ONLY monitors.
One computer with one VGA out and one HDMI out.
The VGA out works properly. Now, for the second monitor, I have a cable from Amazon that is HDMI on one end and DVI-I on the other. However, I need this converted to VGA, so I have an adapter. Now, when I plug this into the adapter, and then into the monitor no signal. So, I thought it might be a problem with Digital/Analog.
Then I tried it on another computer with a GTX660.
This setup has a monitor with DVI-D and VGA and HDMI.
The amazon cable functions perfectly on the HDMI and DVI sides.
When I plug the DVI cable into the DVI-D slot, I receive picture.
When I plug the DVI cable into the DVI-I slot, I also receive picture.
When I plug the DVI cable into either DVI slot and THEN into the adapter, and THEN into the VGA slot, I get NO picture.
Am I missing something or is this adapter DOA?
FWIW, I have two of these adapters from different companies, and neither seems to work.
