Can my video card be too powerful for my monitor?
Posted on 2004-08-24
I recently bought an eVGA Nvidia Personal Cinema FX5600 256MB card. Powerfull card
when i install the card and power up, it starts to go through the boot routine and then the monitor goes to sleep or power saving mode. I have tested it on 2 monitors known to work a Dell 770s and a NEC multisync xv 17+. It happens on both.
I have the latest BIOS and the card is WHQL-certified. Onlything I can come up with is that the card is too powerful for the monitor and the monitor saves itself by shutting off, or the card is defective.
Is it possible that the monitor is just not capable of keeping up with card?
Is there a way to slow down the card w/ jumpers so I can at least boot and adjust
