I have a Dell Optiplex 745. When I turn on the computer I get this message:
Attention: unsupported video configuration detected action is required
This computer has an add-in graphics card, but the monitor cable is plugged into the integrated video connector.
To attach the monitor cable to the add-in graphics card:
1 shut down the computer
2 Plug the monitor cable into the add-in graphics card connector this
may require a video adapter or video adapter cable (provided with
3 turn on the computer
I can't see anywhere else to plug the cable in other than the blue one at the back. Do I need to buy some sort of adapter cable? Someone told me I need a DVI to VGA cable, is this right, or is there an alternative?
I have the same problem but I know what to do. Here is what I am looking for : dms59 to dvi-d cable with vga split. I don't know how to describe it for better search. Can someone please help. Thanks.
You cant do VGA with DVI-D. DMS59 is NOT a splitter.
You cannot use onboard VGA with a card in the slot. If you have a card you can only use the video on the card.
This is why you get that message.
