Question

Screen loosing signal from computer.

Hey!
Just bought a new computer from Asus with GTX960. When I was gonna start using it I realised it didn't have a VGA-port to the graphic card. My screen is a couple of years old and got VGA-cord. So I went to buy and HDMI to VGI-adapter so I could use the computer without having to buy a new screen.

It worked fine, but when I restarted the computer the resolution changed and when I opened certain programs like google chrome, the screen lost signal to the computer even though computer was still running. Then I restarted the computer and resolution was back to normal and I could open any program without screen loosing signal to computer.

But then when I started computer next day same thing occurs so I just restart computer and it works fine.

Now like 6 days later, the screen is loosing signal to the computer all the time when I open certain programs. Restarting computer doesn't solve problem.

So I'm hoping someone can help me determine if this happens because of the the HDMI to VGA-adapter or because of the graphic card isn't working properly.

Sorry for bad english. (I'm not a native speaker.)

Clarification Request
Most 960's came with VGA outputs.

Let's get the full make and model card to see what's up. And yes, HDMI to VGA adapters are troublesome. I never troubleshoot those. I remove them.

Problem is the HDMI to VGA adapter.

Ye. The computer didn't come with anything but a keyboard.

Just went to borrow a screen from my friend that has HDMI cable. Works with no problems at all. Guess I'm just gonna have to buy a new computer screen when the paycheck arrives on Tuesday.

Is it the diffrence between 144hz and 120hz worth the money?

Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.

Adapter

Why not take the hdmi>vga adapter back and swap it for a dvi>vga adapter?
Sure would be a lot cheaper than buying a new monitor.
