DVI Connections- whats the difference here?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I seem to have 2 different DVI cables whjich one is the proper one to use?
One of them was working and I think came with the DEll 2407 screen.


Im having to use a DVI to VGA converter plug from the 8800 Ultra > Dell screen VGA connection

The photo on the left is the DVI cable which gives me no signal....
The photo on the right is the adapter DVI to VGA which works.

the top has no analog

DVI-Integrated (DVI-I) supports both digital and analogue connections to the display. The DVI-I interface connector carries single or dual-link digital signals on 24 pins and uses 5 pins to carry the analogue connection. It is easily distinguishable by the cross shaped slot on the right of the connector

DVI-Digital (DVI-D) supports digital only connections. Only DVI-D cables can be attached to this Female connector on a monitor. DVI-I cables will not fit! This interface is designed for a 12 or 24 pin connection to enable single or dual-link mode activation.


Does you dell monitor have 2 inputs? Analog and Digital?
