Post by Mac B on May 10th 2016, 4:44 pm

long story short
my monitor isn't fuckin working with it

i put the blue ports in, screw em in, no signal

immediate monitor specs;
acer lcd

Pc specs are a little fuzzy, something like 1 tb hdd, 8 gb ram, 3.02(????) processor, no idea what the graphics card is

gonna try this really old blocky looking one, if that dont work, then im gonna assume it's something with the vga output on the pc
im not too excited to have to fuck around with the motherboard but this will not proceed

There is not.
There are two dvi ports, however. Though I have no dvi cables, and the only monitor that supports them is this vizio.

edit; dvi isnt supported directly, itd still have to go through a vga or hdmi converter
what the fuck is going ooonnn

if you plug the vga into the motherboard with a graphics card installed it won't work because the graphics card overrides the motherboard graphics, idk if thats the problem

Figured that out last night, and it's likely that.
Took a look inside and it turns out the graphics card's outs are two dvis, so hopefully all I need is a dvi cable and a converter.
In fact, if it doesn't, I'm taking this shit up with the seller.
