Re: Can't get old 640 x 480 monitor or work
I was afraid of that. Yea I guess I could screw with drivers and BIOS I guess but I guess I might need to drop some coin on little LCD.
The work around is to connect it to my cool new LCD TV which does have a VGA D-Sub 15 pin input.
The TV also has others HDMI, Component, Composite. Since I might want to turn the computer into a DVR getting a better graphics card might be the way to go.
Even though the VGI will work with the TV, its now a matter of the computer being the OLD technology and the monitor being state of the art. The current graphics is an on mother board intel basic 32mb deal.
I guess I need to get a new graphics card that has a DVI or HDMI output for high quality video.
Can you recommend a good cheap card (used) and the best way to connect the computer to TV. Since I have any choice I guess HDMI/DVI is best. I'll no doubt need to drop some coin on over priced cables. I do know DVI and HDMI are compatible with a cable.
Thanks for your help
