omahamikeI came here to check on whether someone has asked about the outputs from the card to a Samsung S29E790C monitor. I had 2 monitors hooked up before from the built in video card but I'm a little afraid to just start hooking up cables between the two and messing things up. I did all that wiring etc a long time ago, and I frankly don't remember what I did, but it did work! The video card is a EVGA GTX 960 with 2 Gb. It's the FTW edition. I wanted a 4 Gb card, but Best Buy was out of it, and Egghead was also, so I settled for the 2 Gb card. I used 2 of the outputs from the computer video card before (DVI and HDMI, I think or maybe one was a VGA) But now I'm using HDMI to HDMI for 1 big display. Any help would certainly be appreciated... I must tell everyone that I'm 75 years old and my learning curve looks like a line drawing of the ALPS! So please be gentle and understand that I might not get it on the first try!! I do ask a lot of questions... The monitor has one more unused HDMI IN and one Display Port IN. The card has 3 Display Port OUTS and 1 DVI-I out. I was looking to do an extended desktop and maybe a PIP from another computer, which Samsung says I can do. So now I'll go back and start reading all the posts , and hopefully find something that will work for me! I do believe that I have enough horsepower in the computer, although it's only an I5-4570 processor with 12 Gb of RAM. I also changed the power supply to a 600 Watt and there are 2 DVD writers, and a 2TB hard drive. It has USB 2.0 and 3.0 and Windows 10 Home. Anything more you might need to know, just ask!
AgathoNHi folks, this doesnt strike me as the right forum to ask this, but I cant find a better thread - whats the deal with forum avatars here?I tried various pictures and everytime I my uploaded one in my profile with a red border. Cropping doesnt solve that. Avatar does not show up on posts. What am I doing wrong? ;)
Sebastian.BHi Folks,I'm new too. Meanwhile, having an issue with my new built PC. EVGA GTX 1080 FTW DT,Intel 6950x,Gigabyte Designare EX,Samsung 950 Pro (M.2),64GB G.Skill Trident Z, I assembled the PC build last night and had a quick look at the BIOS, it seemed all good. I could control the fans. SSD and HDD were visible and so on..Today, however, I fired the PC to install Win-10. But the problem is 'DELETE' key on the keyboard doesn't take me into the BIOS at all.All black screen which only sometimes writing "Reboot and insert your media and press any key to continue ...When I reboot from the case it is the same story again.Having HDMI from my Graphics card to Monitor, and haven't reset the BIOS yet. Could it be my graphic card? I have two separated 8 pins (6+2) Cables from my 1200W EVGA PSU. (The same as last night).Also when I turn the PC on Graphics card's fans spinning for a few second and then stop working which could be for temp, though.Do I need to flash my BIOS?I would be grateful for any helpSebastian.B
