it should work..

does the product work fine using the VGA adapter?

if it does you may have a problem with either the adapter or or the cable... perhaps even the video cards dvi adapter...

not sure about the control panel for nvidia cards but you should be able to set an alternate frequency tab as checked ...

there are differences in picture sharpness/clarity and it helps for gaming...

if you have any friends with dvi cables or can actually bring their rigs over or you can take your monitor to them... you can eliminate differnet things like wther its the cable... the card... the adapter or whatever...

are you switching the cable while the comp is on? make sure you're doing it while it's off and don't leave the vga cable hooked up. just have the dvi cable in place and turn it on and it should work.

there should be an option to alternate dvi frequency... it sometimes works to clear up some problems...

is the monitor just going on and off or is it changing resolutions?

have you tried alternating the dvi frequency? through the control panel...

I am not sure if it will help but it is supposed to help with anomalies...


hardware monkey
make sure you don't still have the old analog monitor drivers installed. there should be digital ones or at least make sure it says "plug and play monitor".

next thing would be to set all your refresh rates to 60hz. this includes any in the directx portion of your video settings.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
