DVI cables driving me INSANE PLEASE HELP!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have tried 3 different dual DVI 10 foot cables (2 star tech and 1 media bridge) and NONE of them work. I am currently using a 6 foot dual DVI media bridge cable without any problems. I need a longer cable to make things more organized.....any Ideas why none of the 10 foot cables won't work?

What resolution are you trying to run? In any case, I bought three 10' cables from these guys; most of their cables support resolutions up to 2560x1600. I am using them for my 27" monitors (2560x1440 resolution). Their shipping is expensive though.

The DVI cables have to be rated as dual-link DVI. Otherwise the wires physically can't handle the bandwidth. Most are just good for 1900x1200 resolution.

these are the ones I bought, I actually bought 2 different startech ones, and none of them worked. I know everything else is setup correctly cause right now I am using my monitor perfectly fine with a 6 foot dual DVI media bridge. I don't know what else to do....
