DVI port issues???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I just picked up an ASUS 6870. Worked fine for the last few days. I had the monitor cable plugged into the bottom DVI port... I would assume this is the secondary port. Today, i started getting VGA driver crashes and then it actually locked up on me. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, etc etc. Kept doing it, then finally locked up and when I restarted the computer, my mobo VGA "problem" light came on. So i switched to the top port on the card, and now it works fine...

Any ideas?

A faulty DVI port I'd guess. I'd RMA it and see if the new card fixes it.

The upper DVI-I Dual Link is analog and digital. If you use DVI-VGA adapter this is the port to use. The lower iis DVI-D digital only, if your monitor has native DVI then connect it to this lower DVI port.

Do not RMA, it is not a product defect.

Why would it have worked for several days and then now my Mobo is telling me their is a problem with the VGA if im plugged into the lower port?
