So yesterday my Geforce 8800 GTX burned up. I still had a Geforce 8400 GS around, which is better than having no computer to use at all, until I get my GTX replaced.
When I connect my 23" monitor with the DVI cable to the DVI slot on the 8400 GS, the monitor stays black.
When I connect my 23" monitor with the analogue cable to the analogue slot on the 8400 GS, the monitor tells me to check the cables
When I connect my 23" monitor with the DVI analogue cable from the analogue slot on the monitor to the DVI slot on the graphics card, I get an image. However, the monitor complains that it's just analogue, and I can only get a resolution of 1600*somethingsomething, which is pretty badm, since the native resolution of the monitor is 1920*1080, and as a result all text is blurry.
When I connect my 19" monitor with the analogue cable to the analogue slot on the GS 8400, then I get an image too.
So currently I have the choice between a sharp tiny picture (1400*900 or something on a 19") or a large blurry picture on my 23".
Why does my 23" monitor show me a black screen when I connect it with the DVI cable to the graphics card? It knows it's connected correctly, otherwise I'd get a "check the cables" notice. Also the computer runs normally, and the DVI part of the graphics card works too (since I'd otherwise get no picture if I use the analogue cable with an adapter to connect the monitor to the DVI slot).
Thanks for any help. I really don't want to fight with a blurry screen for the next month.
