It has one VGA port and 2 full-sized HDMI ports.
Here's the videocard I'm using now. http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=03G-P3-1596-AR&family=GeForce 500 Series Family&sw=
And the newest card I just received today from NewEgg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121470 This must've been the last one since it was deactivated later the same day I ordered it. I've had it backordered for months. It also has one full-sized HDMI port. This is why I wanted to switch to HDMI.

Ah!

I thought your monitor's only input was VGA, and that you were trying to connect it to the HDMI output on your graphics card.
Disregard everything I said above, although it is still accurate it's not relevant here and you obviously already understand the limitations of adapters and types of signals.

The other guys' posts on separate HDMI drivers are probably worth some thought.

 

Thanks once more. I was dead tired after switching these cables back and forth last night and didn't really write a very good post. There's no way I can lift the monitor anymore and it's a real stretch trying to work behind the thing on the wall while holding a mirror to make sure I'm reaching the right connector.

This monitor really isn't worthy of the videocards I've accumulated these past 2 years, so I guess it's high time I started looking at a new one. I'm not interested in multiple monitors so I guess I better start pricing another large one of some sort. I'm quite happy with this one but I know I can buy a lot better. I've been eyeballing one of these for a while now. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260028 , but that would mean a long trip to, probably, a damned BestBuy. I think I just got very lucky with this ASUS I ordered from the Egg since it arrived safely. I was more than a little paranoid when I was hooking it up. I'm not going to try that again. Monitors are too delicate to risk being abused in shipping. It's more than a 60 mile round trip just to the closest UPS depot plus the hassle of repackaging and shipping a damaged monitor.

I've read all sorts of reviews of the Dell I listed. There are far too many arguments for and against them for me to make my mind up. There's nobody around my area that knows anything much about computers. Most of them are older than me and they use either laptops or whatever they found on sale at Wal-Mart.

hdmi drivers are for sound, not video IIRC.



I'm taking too long to post something, I just saw yours. I tried that but, I've been unplugging the power to both monitor and computer between trying different cable hook ups. Will it hurt my monitor, or even worse, my videocard if I leave them turned on while switching the cables around? If not, then this might just be the solution I need!

You can't imagine what it would feel like to destroy possibly the last ASUS MARS II there may ever be.

I do it all the time and I've never heard of a card or display breaking because of a cable being plugged in. What you've been doing is kind of like turning off your computer to plug in a pair of headphones.smile.gif

Did you try pressing the button that switches from Analog to HDMI? I had the same problem with a recent HDMI LED Samsung monitor, and didn't realize that the analog signal could be switched to HDMI via one simple button. Had it running from DVI to VGA to the new monitor a couple days til I found out what that lil' button did. It sounds like you don't have the ASUS monitor set to receive HDMI signal. It could just be a simple solution. Maybe?

Where is this button located? I've never seen one like that.

I tried what qwertymac93 suggested in the post above yours and it didn't work. I figured that my monitor won't accept 2 inputs from the same source. With both cables connected the monitor wouldn't show either VGA or HDMI. Only "No Signal Detected", and then shut down.

wth.gif uhh...
On your monitor it is the button with a square with an arrow through it. it is the rightmost button next to the volume up button.
On the remote, the button is located between the power and mute buttons.

Both inputs being from the same computer shouldn't matter. The monitor thinks you have two different computers plugged in, the graphics card thinks you have two different monitors plugged in.
Here is a screen shot of what my graphics drivers think when i plug both the dvi and vga connections on my monitor(gateway HD1900) to the same graphics card(HIS 5750):
572
Notice it shows two displays, but the first monitor is a picture of a CRT. That is because the drivers treat all vga connections as CRTs, and all dvi/hdmi connections as LCDs. I can even move things between the "screens".

Anyway, when you have the vga cable connected and everything is normal, what happens when you then attach the hdmi cable without touching anything else. Video would be helpful.

If you think the cable is bad, you can try buying this cheap cable. better yet, don't use the evga adapter at all and use this adapter cable instead, that way you have a little less clutter.

Thanks! It works now. I was just trying to get rid of a little cable clutter, but now the display looks even better with the HDMI cable. I wasn't expecting that. The cable that came with the monitor must not be as high a grade as the new HDMI cable.

Right about those buttons, too. Since the instructions were long gone I didn't realize that the square with an arrow through it was the Analog to HDMI button you 1st mentioned.

One thing else, I never could get HDMI to work with the EVGA GTX590. I set the monitor to HDMI 1, removed the VGA cable and hooked up the HDMI cable. It didn't work. Either it was the button mentioned above, or the HDMI connector doesn't work on my GTX590. I'm gonna have to re-install the GTX590 and see if it works now with the HDMI cable or send it back to EVGA if not. I'll probably just wait a while. It has a lifetime warranty so I'm in no rush.

I didn't even try the new cable with the MARS II. If you hadn't posted I never would have. I'd already forgotten about it. Too excited about the MARS II.

This ASUS MARS II has been randomly crashing to a black screen. I never could get the voltage unlocked in the MSI Afterburner Beta program, so I uninstalled it and re-installed the ASUS GPU Tweak program to get to the voltage. I'm experimenting with a slight voltage increase to see if it can cure the random crashes. I have until New Years Day to request an RMA, so I have a little more than a week to try and get it to run properly.

I ran across another MSI GTX580 Lightning Xtreme so I bought it. If the MARS II doesn't work out I have several different backups and configurations.

I couldn't find a MARS II so I bought the GTX590. When I finally found a MARS II I wasn't about to try and sell the GTX590 since it's a limited edition. I'll just consider that as a backup. The pair of GTX580's are for IvyBridge. I'm not expecting too much from the new GTX6xx (Kepler) series and will wait for the series after that. I think it's called Maxwell. Any way I look at it, I'm good to go for the next 3 years. The MARS II was/is a luxury. I could afford it so I bought it as soon as I was notified it was back in limited stock.

If anybody's interested, here's a link to the Nvidia GPU series from Pre-GeForce through the upcoming Kepler series: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_600_Series

Thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it.

Well, glad you got it working. I hope that mars is okay, you definitely shouldn't have to over-volt it to run at stock. You paid a pretty penny for that thing, it should rub your feet and bring you breakfast in bed when you ask it to! wink.gif

Nope. It's been randomly crashing to a black screen, the drivers ASUS has for the MARS II do not even recognize the card in my computer. ASUS Tech. won't respond to the ticket I filed and no answers in sight from the ASUS Forum.

The card is on its way back by RMA. If they have another, and I hope they do, maybe it'll run right. If not, I now have a pair of MSI GTX580 Lightning Xtreme's to replace it.

Besides all that, I destroyed the mobo in my sig while swapping out the 2500K for one of my 2600K's. I had a deep muscle spasm at exactly the moment I was placing the cpu in the socket and crushed and twisted more pins in the socket than I can count, even with a magnifying glass and a bright LED flashlight. There's no straightening out so many pins, bent in almost every direction, so I have a new one on the way.
I came close to ordering a new Z68 but I really have no use for any of the features that come with that board, so I thought I'd save myself $30.00 and just stick with the P67. That didn't work, either. After Amazon had shipped the new mobo, I found that NewEgg has them with a 10% discount. If I'd ordered from the Egg I would've paid $30 less than Amazon.

I'll be glad when this year is finally over. It's been a rough one for the entire planet. Earthquakes, tsunami's, tornado's, drought, famine, epidemics, terrorists and the list just goes on and on.

Plus my computer problems which now pale in comparison.

Screw, "Happy New Year!" I just hope to God that it's a damned lot better than this one. It's hard to believe, but it could've been much, much worse. And it still ain't over, yet.

Damn, you got some seriously bad luck this year. I thought it sucked I had to pay $12 for another tube of thermal paste when I knocked my NB out of alignment by mistake, that's nothing compared to what you're dealing with.

Here's to some better experiences in 2012 cheers.gif
