04 Jun How to Connect Vga to Dvi Cable
You might have a DVI-D port on your computer or monitor, but you also might have an old VGA cable lying around that you need to connect. This blog article will help you figure out how to connect the two so that you can use the DVI port on your monitor with the VGA cable.
What is Dvi?
Dvi is digital visual interface. It is a specification for transferring video and audio data between digital displays. The standard has been developed by the Digital Display Working Group of the International Telecommunications Union.
What is Vga?
VGA is an abbreviation for video graphics array, which simply means a type of connector used to connect a monitor and a video card. The most common VGA connector is a DB-15 male connector.
Most computers have a VGA port, but if you don’t have one or if your computer doesn’t have a monitor attached, you’ll need to connect your video card to the computer with a DVI cable. You can buy a DVI cable separately or you can purchase a DVI-to-VGA converter.
To connect your VGA cable to your DVI port, first make sure that your DVI cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer. Then plug the end of the VGA cable into the female connector on the video card and plug the other end of the VGA cable into the appropriate port on your monitor.
DVI or VGA?
There are two types of graphics output – DVI and VGA. Which one you need depends on your computer monitor. A DVI connection uses a digital signal, while a VGA connection uses a analog signal.
If you have a new computer with a DVI connector, you can connect the cable directly to the computer’s graphics card and the monitor. If you have an older computer with a VGA connector, you’ll need to connect the cable to the computer first and then connect the monitor to the cable.
Connecting DVI to VGA
If you have an older desktop or laptop that uses a VGA connector for its display output, you may need to connect a DVI cable in order to use it with a newer desktop or laptop that uses a DisplayPort connector. There are several ways to do this.
One method is to use an adapter. Many laptops and some desktop computers come with an adapter that can convert the VGA output of the old device into a DVI output usable by the new device. Just be sure to check the specifications of the adapter before buying it, as some adapters only work with certain brands of graphics cards or monitors and not others.
Another way to connect a DVI cable is to use an HDMI cable. Most newer laptops and most desktop computers come with an HDMI port, which is capable of providing a high-quality digital output. Just be sure to check the specifications of the cable before buying it, as some cables only work with certain brands of graphics cards or monitors and not others.
