    Good People,

    I just bought a ViewSonic VX900 LCD display, and I want to use the DVI
    connection. It works fine with the DB15 (regular VGA connection) but I can't
    enable the DVI connection. In the device selection tab of the Nvidia properties tab, the Digital Output and TV Output are greyed out. Also if I connect the DVI
    only and my system starts up I see the boot logo, the WIN XP Pro splash screen and when it gets to the point where the blue Welcome screen is supposed to be come up I get a No Sync message and the display is black.
    So it seems to me that this is a WIN XP Pro issue. I have the latest Det. drivers and the latest ViewSonic VX900 inf. file for XP.
    Anybody has any idea?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply, yes I do have a refresh fix installed. But the DVI stuff is set to 60MHz anyway, or that's what I heard.

    might be true, but my tv-out doesn't work unless i de-activate my refresh rate fix. i wish i had a dvi-compatible lcd to test my dvi port. }:\

    that would be something i would try if i were you, though.
