Graphics board works only on Display Port (DP)but not on DVI
VGA monitor (1280 x 1024) with AMD Radeon 7570 graphics card
DP out and DVI out. When I use the DP the picture looks great, and I'm happy...
But if I use the DVI out then I get vertical grey bands ( inch thick) across the screen behind the "picture". Very Annoying.
I am now using a DP > VGA cable for my vga monitor, I also have a DVI > VGA cable I used once before when everything worked fine. I am using the same graphics board, same monitor, same everything, etc. except for : a) the DVI converter cable or b) the DVI connector on the board.
Everything worked fine on either port before...I was messing around with different settings and not sure if I caused it? I just don't understand why one port would work and not the other?
Or is it just my bad luck something actually broke on the board/connectors/cabling while I was playing around?
I need the DP > VGA cable for another PC I want to upgrade. If I can use the DVI > VGA cable, then I would have a "spare".
Thanks in advance for all responses!
Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to all,
