No VGA signal with no on-board, help?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My asrock 990fx extreme 3 does not have an on-board video and my graphic card does not support VGA. I assumed DVI would still work without the driver installed but it seems my monitor is still looking for a VGA signal ... what do I do?

EDIT: Monitor is Asus VS228H-P 21.5" Monitor and graphics card is Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card

You could try a DVI->VGA adapter on your video card (it should have come with one?)

Have you tried switching the inputs on the OSD for your monitor?

^This. Even if you have the default driver (microsoft) It dont matter if youre connected to HDMI, VGA, DVI it should still work. But like kevinsbane said maybe your monitor is not searching for any active signal.

There is so much wrong with this picture ....

#1 - The ASUS monitor you listed HAS a DVI-D port, as well as a HDMI port. Throw the analog VGA cable in the drawer, and use the proper cable. You want a digital connection between your card and monitor, not an analog VGA cable. The ASUS VS228H-P even comes with a DVI cable in the box.

#2 - The card DOES support VGA anyhow, so even if you wanted to use the analog VGA cable (and you wouldn't want to), the video card should have come with a cheapie DVI to VGA dongle adapter.
