Not all DVI ports can drive VGA. DVI-D for example is " DVI-D (digital only) " and VGA is analog so there is NO CABLE to make that work. Sure folk will sell you junk cables and such but then what a waste of time.
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Specifications&Model=H61M-GS confirms the port is DVI-D and will never support VGA without a fairly pricey convertor box.
A video card is cheaper.
right ill try and tell you everything so hopefully you can help.
so i got 2 monitors. one is a tv/monitor.
both can use a VGA and the monitor also a DVI.
pc motherboard is an ASROCK h61m-gs.
it has a vga and a dvi port.
so i brought a dvi adapter. it tuned up and did not fit. i quickly worked out there are different types. i got aDVI-I M TO VGA MONITOR F CONVERTER ADAPTOR 15PIN SVGA. the had the +5 and i could not use it. i tryed pulling them extra pins out but was no help.
i then got 2 x DVI-D M TO VGA F CONVERTER ADAPTER FOR HDTV LCD TV. - it worked out cheaper to get 2 strangly so that the only reason why i have 2.
this also didnt work. so i done more research. during my research i updated all drivers, configured the Bios as stated in the Asrock manual. i done everything... still nothing.
after 2 days i read somewhere something about that the type i got this time does not put out an analog signal only digital? so again i think i went wrong and got the wrong type.
so now i reading more into it... i think i know now what i need. i need what i brought the first time? right but with out the extra 4 pins?... a DVI-I 24 +1 ? but i cannot find this type - so i guess i wrong....
i cant think of anything else to do.... i dont think it is the bio or the pc.... its gota be the cable type, i am not buying the right thing...and i dont wanna waist more money.
