  1. Display interface question DVI, DpsilayPort, VGA


    OK, I've spent a lot of time on computers over the years but I never looked into display interfaces until I had to figure out how to connect a second display to a computer with only 1 VGA port and no room for a video card for a project my wife is involved in. I believe the DisplayPort to VGA adapter I have ordered will solve that but it has started me thinking about my own system: I have a Lenovo M58P with a Dell E2314Hf 23" monitor (I occasionally work with graphics for my Shirt Shop ). Not knowing any better, I connected them with the VGA cable that came with the monitor but I have never been truly happy with the display.

    The computer has a DisplayPort and a VGA port. The monitor has a DVI-D dual link port and a VGA. Would I be better off to keep using the VGA or to get a DisplayPort to DVI-D cable?

    :)

    I have tried to hook up a second monitor through the DVI with a DVI to VGA monitor but it won't recognize the monitor. Any suggestions?

    Question about VGA to DVI

    Okay i have an old CRT monitor with only VGA. On my video card (x850Pro, yes old too) there is VGA and DVI, is there any advantage in using the VGA-to-DVI adapter that came with the video card or is it the same thing as going VGA-to-VGA? I assume there is an extra step that VGA-to-DVI adapter has to do to make the analog signal to digital, is that a disadvantage? Basically VGA-to-VGA or VGA-to-DVI.

    Thank you.

    Continuum with VGA/DVI-D only monitor

    Hello there,

    I am planning to try out Continuum with a Lumia 950XL. The monitor I should connect it to has only VGA and DVI-D input connectors, and it supports a 1920 x 1200 resolution on a 24" panel with 16:10 aspect ratio.

    • Would it be possible to get a stable, reliable and functional connection between the Lumia and such monitor?
    • The resolution and aspect ratio of the external monitor would be correctly interpreted by the Lumia or would I face problems in image size, resolution or aspect ratio of the contect that I see on screen?

    My idea is to buy the Display Dock, connect the phone on one end and an HDMI to DVI-D cable on the other end.

    How does it sound?

    Thank you very much.
