Thread Starter 
Hi, Just bought a 7800gt upgrading from 6800xt. I ve got a cornea 18" lcd, with only vga. After I installed the 7800gt and used the vga to dvi adapter, the computer posts, but when windows trys to boot, my monitor shuts off? What gives? Any ideas? I realllly want to use this card asap. Thanks

make sure the adapter is plugged in and screwed in properly and then make sure your monitor is plugged and screwed in properly as well...could be driver issues too, try the other port as well since it has 2 of them.

tried all of that, the thing is, my monitor works fine with my 6800. Now, with it shutting down when windows starts, should I try maybe doing a quick re install of windows?
