I recently bought this Motherboard to upgrade my VERY OLD system. The Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA78LMT-USB3. Yes, I know it's not a high performer and it's an older model but i'm not a gamer. This board has 3 display ports but it won't allow me to use the DVI or HDMI by itself. It only works if I use the 15 pin D-Sub as my main display and one of the other as a second monitor. I only need one monitor. Is there a setting that will enable me to use HDMI or DVI by itself or am I stuck with using the 15 pin only? 
Specs If it helps: AMD FX6300 Black Edition CPU with 16 GB of G.Skill Ripjaws X Series Ram overclocked at 1600MHz

Thank You
John

I can't say for sure, but from the user manual it looks a little as if that may be the only option, strange as it seems. The output connect options in BIOS list as Auto, D-SUB/DVI, D-SUB/HDMI. So that does intimate D-SUB might always be the primary. Have you tried setting the manual selection option to whichever digital connection you wish to use just in case?

 

Other than that, I'd suggest try asking Gigabyte support and see if you get a response.

I sent them an email through the website but haven't heard anything yet. I asked the tech at the place I got the MB from but his only advice was to install a new GPU and disable the on board video. I just thought it was a little backwards for Gigabyte to do this. I guess I'm going to be installing a new Video Card. Thanks for the response and help.
