Digital Artist Okay I just removed pin #7 (DDC Data) and pin #6 (DDC Clock) on the DVI connector.
The screen remains black and the monitor stays in stand-by mode.
Did I just ruin my cable? This sucks LoL
Do I have to remove these pins on both ends of the cable?

Turns out I had to reboot for Windows 7 to display on the monitor again

So for anybody attempting this, it DOES work, getting those 2 pins out is rather difficult without bending the others but I managed to bend them all back into place and it works perfect. My 1 problem with Windows 7 is now history. Thanks

P.S. This can also be done by removing 1 pin from the monitor's VGA cable, but obviously it's better to use the DVI adapter and at least then you only risk destroying a $6 item.
lol

I'm attempting this now.
Hope it works...
Any more testimonials anyone?

chicken- I attempted this on a DVI adapter but I couldn't get the pins to snap out. One of them I bent back and forth and it broke in the middle, but can't get the damn things out

Hollowman8904 Pretty much if you dont run and LCD at the resolution it should (weather above or below) the pixels its being told to display wont match up with the pixels it actually has, resulting in a blurry image

SoaDMTGguy UPDATE: I just tried it again. The mod works, but my monitor just can’t go above 1024 on the horizontal.

Btw, as yiffi said more than native res on a lcd is pointless cause there are actual pixels on a lcd but there aren't on a crt. (technically)
I got the pins you showed in your pic. 2 pins on the bottom row, 1 in form the right side. The monitor shows up as "anolog monitor". Also, I dont really care if it doesnt look got, its another mod, and I want to make it work!
