Default Extended Monitor.

Pls help me to set another extended Monitor.

I have another LG monitor with VGA port only which I tried to connect with my system which has additional DVI-D(24x1)(pin) apart from standard VGA. I tried with the help of an adapter (Male DVI-D to female VGA).

It says no Signal pls check ur connection.

Updated Intel HD Graphic driver too.

Still Windows not able to find IInd monitor. (although kept it right in front of the same.)

Could it be a faulty adapter (bough on-line) or am I missing some thing?

Pls help.

It is possible that the dvi port on your system only supports a dvd-d digital connection and no analog connection. In which case, no dvd to vga adaptor will work.

Normally a DVI port will supply both digital and analog signals. For those ports, the dvi-vga adaptor will just connect the analog signal pins to the vga port and help to drive the vga monitor.

Does your primary monitor have a dvi input, or even that has a vga input only?

Dont you have hdmi ports on your system or monitor?

Thanks No1 for ur reply.

Primary supports only VGA
Don't have HDMi ports in any monitor

Bought another DVi-D to VGA cable y/day. After connecting this at least it has stooped saying"No Signal pls check ur connection" But I am still at dead end.

By adding another VGA card in PC can i solve this issue?
Will it work as extended monitor?

Pls advice possible solutions....

Thanks

Rohit bhai, with VGA card, the extra monitor should work. But it should work in current situation as well, without any VGA Card. So there seems to be some issue somewhere which needs troubleshooting. It is hard to guess it from here, about what might be the real issue that is causing the extra monitor not to work.

I would suggest that if you have some computer savvy friend nearby then it is better to take his help. As there might be some minor fault somewhere which could be noticed by him easily. If you know some PC shop guy who is HONEST, then giving him 2-300 bucks for a visit at your place to fix this issue might turn out to be a better deal then going out to buy the New VGA card and still remaining stuck.

I have been through such experience myself and after wasting a lot of time in searching online, I realized that the best way is to take help from someone who could be physically present there to fix it up.

All the best.

PS: When you get the second monitor to work after a lot of trouble, then the good feeling that you get from the extra desktop space, increases in the same proportion as well. So please do not give up, it would definitely work sooner or later. Keep trying.

What is the make and model of your motherboard? Is this a onboard graphics card with 2 ports or is this a separate graphics card?

Contact Lenovo support and ask them how to use the external dvi port. They would not put a dummy port on a lenovo system.
