Samsung SyncMaster P2370 LCD (DVI Connection Problem) HELP !

by nypdblue / November 28, 2009 1:55 AM PST

Hi, I've got a Samsung SyncMaster P2370 LCD Monitor with only a DVI connection and I'm looking for a splitter/ converter/ solution to connect both VGA output from a computer and a HDMI-DVI male lead from a Sky HD Box. Hope that makes sense. Thanks...

nypdblue,

VGA sends an analog signal, whereas DVI/HDMI send digital signals. There are converter boxes available, but they aren't always inexpensive.

Samsung SyncMaster P2370H Vga to DVI?
by fedejv / August 21, 2010 4:38 AM PDT

Dear Samsung, the monitor includes a cable AMW e101344-c style 20276.
I tried using the cable connecting de D-Sub connector to my laptop and the DVI connector to the monitor. The laptop has D-Sub and S-Video output, and the laptop does the typical noise of when a new HW is found, but even installing drivers, the laptop does not recognize the Monitor.
I also had the same problem with 2 more laptops and 2 desktops.

Does the cable converts D-Sub into DVI? I checked in some forums, and people says that cable doesnt work properly, that they tried moving the cable for hours and finally worked, but there was no support from Samsung.

I really want to know what's the problem

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?
