VERY dissatisfied with this DCLCD monitor whacked connection scheme

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My 22" DCLCD just arrived and guess what! It has a DVI-I connector and my cable is DVI-D.

what does this mean? I have to have both the VGA and DVI-I cables connected to the monitor because apparantly the monitor cannot detect the videocard until the video card drive is loaded in windows. If I just use my DVI-I cable I cannot see the BIOS loading. This has something to do with the DVI frequency. the DVI-D cable cannot send the analog signal the monitor needs to detect the signal from the card.

and I thought DVI was digital...that's why it was invented, right!?

So what happends is that the computer boots up VGA mode then the monitor switches to DVI mode once the vista login screen appears.

I cannot manually select DVI even if it is the only cord attached.

This monitor is very strange in that it has the analog VGA connector and the DVI-I connector which means that it still needs an analog signal until the video card is able to reduce the DVI frequency so that the digital signal can be detected.

My previous monitor has VGA and DVI-D connectors and I have NO PROBLEM using JUST the DVI-D cable.

Now I guess I have to go purchase a DVI-I cable or else I suppose I can continue to use my VGA in tandem with the DVI-D cable.

i'm not happy at all. I troubleshooted this problem for hours trying to figure out why the screen would not turn on until the BIOS was done loading.

I do not recommend this monitor at ALL, it does not follow the DVI standards. and is not "purely digital DVI".

The monitor should come with the cable?

I've never heard of one that doesn't come with a DVI and VGA cable..

None of the monitors I have ever bought have come with a DVI cable. Apparently this saves money as DVI cables must be so expensive. It seems that cheap monitors have poor DVI implementation anyways. The manual is quick to blame the video card for any DVI problems. I can't believe the audacity of this monitor manufacturer to blame the video card!

When you purchase a car, are the spark plugs are sold separately?

Never again will I buy a DVI-I monitor. Plus it has a stuck-on pixel (I plan to deal with that later).

One thing I hate about Newegg...they have NO return policy for monitors. I can only exchange it if 8 or more pixels are dead. OMG.

Yeah, seriously.

You don't want to be cheap on your monitor.

dont blame the monitor for not coming with it if its a cheap monitor. sometimes you just have to spend the xtra money and there is no way around it. sure you can always get a car for 1000 dollars but is the ride going to be as smooth, reliable, stable, and require less repair then a car you spend 5,000 on? if the 5000 was extremely better, then in this particular case you would spend the extra 4 grand.

bring it down to your monitor situation. judging by your rig your not a high super computer user. so yes you don't need nothing fancy, but the hp w1907 supports dvi-d and vga with built in speakers(they suck).

Dude that blows that you cant return it

List that thing up on ebay, say it has 1 dead pixel - offer up cables with it because next time your going to get a proper monitor that actually comes with everything - RIGHT?

Take this as a lesson learned - and get rid of the cheap POS before something else goes wrong! Take a word from the experienced - cheaping out on screens is an absolute waste of time, money, stress, trobleshooting, and more time!


Get yourself something that people recommend here - Samsung, BenQ, Acer, LG, Sony (only the newer XS models), Hell even HP monitors are fantastic!

Why should that matter?

Who's business is it why an item is being posted?
