first time here- seems like a good place to find help- i like the name-and seems like lots of info to be found-so id say its some great folks here- thanks in advance-
i normally stalk Abit forums all my mobos have been abit- ai7 ic7g and now a kn8- well im building my kn8 now- last week built a kn8 system for my bud- anyway this prob came up- i have never had befor-
i wonder if its having an older monitor hooked up to dvi out- or the coverter or the dvi connection on the new vid card could be bad- im asking both to maybe better set up my buds system- and at the same time wonder if i will run into like probs with my new set up-
i will post my buds system specs- and then my specs- mine is a multi sig 2systems- the kn8 is the 1 i have questions about- well both kn8 systems-
any way i hooked up my buds system- everything was great- i installed the drivers for the gto and ccc- no matter if from disc or most new drivers from amd ati site etc. anyway-
installed the drivers- opened ccc to set my wanted defaults- click on [3d] standard settings- who know where the car is running down the road on the little screen etc. or click on [video] standard settings-
the monitor would start turning on off on off over and over- it would make that funny crt start sound or clicking - then id restart the computer its fine- if back to to same place in ccc- or start some hard video stuff-say a game- it would start on off on off over and over-
so i figured my connection was not tight-checked its all good- so i disconnected dvi out- hook up the i guess analog monitor to analog out on the vid card-it all works perfect- all tests games even prey demo 3x back to back no probs- well after i enabled vsync i think it is- prey in game settings-
i do not have a digital monitor say lcd- the monitor i used to build his system is a dell trinitron ultrascan p780 17" may2001-
i always hook up my monitors dvi~crt- my 19" viewsonic p95f+ works perfect with my 9800pro- i never hooked up this dell to my p4 sig system- as soon as my kn8 is done- the p95f will carry over to my kn8- my system will have a 7800gt oc- these are more new vid cards- im not sure what if anything as far as signal is different from my older 9800pro-
so i wonder if i will have like probs with my new system- and or will i have probs when this dell p780 carries over to my p4 rig and 9800pro??
sorry so long-just trying to give as much info as i can- both my self and my bud will upgrade to lcd monitors in this next year- i hope his dvi out is not broken- man my stuff and room is so tight- and this view sonic is a monster- i got his system working-i did not want to rip my rig apart have to move stuff all over-to test my monitor or converter on his system-
well sorry- this dell p780 was give to me a few weeks ago- it seems to work fine- other than said above probs- buds sig first [his monitor is a different flat screen dell] i did not try to hook it up dvi coverter etc.- then my sigs->
