Default DVI or AVG

I know that DVI is Digital obviously and VGA is Analog but which is better or is here any difference at all? I got a new 22" Syncmaster 226BW and finally got my new comp funning after diagnosing its hard drive problem(thanks to all ur help guys) and it has AVG and DVI connections. When I connected it to my GPU via the DVI connector however I got the "cable not connected" error so it only works with AVG I guss but what is the difference and which is better?

Well I can't seem to find a difference myself between VGA and DVI. I think it really depends on the resolution.

Default Re: DVI or AVG

Sounds like there might be a switch on the monitor to switch between VGA (analog) and DVI (digital). Usually signified by Port #1 and #2. Check the monitor mate.

Was that your problem? Is the monitor working under DVI now?

Do you even have the right cable? -_-... and it's VGA. AVG is the name of anti-virus software. Could be a bad cable.
