DUAL VGA Support

by ac1818 / July 8, 2010 2:48 PM PDT

I have the following motherboard model

I have the DVI - graphics card installed already. however I am not sure which cables I would need to enable dual monitor support.

It says in the link above (pg 18-19) that I need to plug in various cables in order to get dual monitor support. I don't think I have any of those cables.

Can you please tell me what other cables I would need to enable dual monitor support. I already have one VGA port onboard. Please see pg 18-19 on the above link.

Would it just be a DVI - VGA converter?

Thanks in Advance.

Port adapter

I think you may need to buy a port adapter according to the type of monitors and video card you have. If you only have a single VGA or DVI connector, you will need to install a video adapter.

A port adaptor?

Where would that go?
I thought since I have one VGA port onboard and a DVI port on my graphics card (see link on prev post)i would need an adapter to change the DVI to a VGA so I can connect a second monitor.

Is that all I would need for my graphics card according to the motherboard manual posted earlier?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
