Can I change from a EVC connector to a VGA connector?

Q: Can I change from a EVC connector to a VGA connector?

I am wanting to install a new video card. It has a VGA and a DVI output on it. The old card has only a EVC connector on it. From there it goes to a Y cable with 2 CRT monitors (VGA connections) coming off of it.

My question is. Can I use a DVI to VGA adaptor and hook both monitors to the new video card and do away with the T cable?

Thanks Bill

Preferred Solution: Can I change from a EVC connector to a VGA connector?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can I change from a EVC connector to a VGA connector?

Most definitely. You can down convert form DVI to VGA, but not the other way around (inexpensively, anyway)

Hi. I am new to building computers and have a question on fans. My case has three fans. Two of my fans have both pin connectors and molex connector attached together. How do I power the fans ?- do I need both connections?
thanks
 

A:Fans with molex connector and pin connector

The 3pin connectors are to plug directly in to the motherboard......if your motherboard does not have the 3pin connectors then plug the molex into the power supply

I am confused whether or not the antenna or cable will screw onto my wireless adapter card.

My wireless Adapter card has a SMA connector on it with the screw wedges on the outside rather than inside with a pin in the middle.

Heres a photo of a similar SMA connector - http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en-commons/thumb/9/90/200px-Gniazdo_RPSMA.jpg

The brand of the network adapter is the same as the brand of the antenna they are both D Link so youd think they would fit.
will the antenna or cable screw onto that?

thanks, jordan

Hi,  I have a HP Envy 700-509C and I replaced the graphic card. However, I bought another power supply (Corsair CX 600 : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028&cm_re=corsair_cx600-_-17-139-028-_-Pr...) because the graphic card requires more power. I ran into a trouble, the last part was the 4-pin connector on the motherboard. There was no cord with only 4-pin, however there is a 8-pin connector and it says CPU on it. I tried it and it does plug in but there the other half (4-pin) hanging out. My question is, will it burn my motherboard? If no, will the computer work?  Thank you 

A:I want to change the power supply, but can a 8-pin connector...

@Kevin828, welcome to the forum. If you look at the "Specifications" in the link that you provided, you will see that it lists a 1 x 4+4 - Pin - ATX12V connector.  This means that you will use one of the 4-Pin connectors only. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I've got a Jaton brand GeForce4 TI4200 video card.
Lost the dang manual, and manufacturer's website is none-too-helpful.
Beside the blue VGA connector, there's a round connector, with 9 pins (female). It's not marked, and I initially thought it was for TV-out (S-Video), but I can't find another on the web that looks similar.

I'm hoping to use it as a TV-out, I guess I'd better figure out what it is first...
Any help will be very much appreciated.

Hello, I'm about to purchase a GTS450 card and noticed it required one 6 pin pci-e power connector. However I only have an 8 pin pci-e power connector. Would this still work?
 

A:6 pin pci-e connector

Might check your 8 pin connector to see if it is a 6+2.
That means that 2 pins may be removable to allow
use as a 6 pin connector.
Check the cards package content list to see if it includes
a 4 pin molex to 6 pin pci express adapter.
If not,you can buy one pretty cheap.

Like many, I have CD-ROM problems, but mine is a little unusual. I have a 58x vanilla CD-ROM chained as a slave to a master Plextor 708-A DVD writer. Both are on the secondary IDE connector of an Asus P5GD1 board. This is the one with the RAID connector possibility on the secondary connector but the default on the Secondary connector is to IDE and I've left it that way. The two hard drives are chained master/slave to the primary and are working fine. Windows XP SP2, P4 3 Ghz, 1 GB RAM.

The CD-ROM shows up in Device Manager but freezes when I've tried to read a CD. The DVD writer works fine and will show anything when there is a disc in there. I've tried the usual workarounds, elminating the Upper and Lower Filters, removing the drives from Device Manager, zilch. In Event Manager, I keep showing Event 51 (paging error) and 11 (controller error) trying to use the CD-ROM. The Event 11 explanation says a "faulty cable" is the problem but I've changed cables twice.

What I'm thinking is that I currently have an 80-pin cable hooked up to the two optical drives and the Asus Secondary Connector which is made for an Ultra ATA 133/100/66 port and the motherboard asks for an Ultra ATA signal cable. Should that cable be a 40-pin connector rather than the 80-pin connector? Would that allow the CD-ROM to be read and will the DVD still work?

Hi, I acquired (for free) a dell Dimension E510 and it it does boot up. When I power it up, it makes a terrible beeping/whining noise and then powers down. The power indicator light starts to blink and I can't power up the computer again unless I hold the power button down for 10 seconds or I unplug the power and then push the power button again. If I disconnect the square 4 pin connector from the mobo, it does not make the beeping sound and the power indicator light stays solidly lit, Regarding the PSU 4 pin connector, I am getting 11.95 volts on each yellow wire (with a volt meter to the chassis) and (minus) - 2 volts on the black wires.
I have tried removing and replacing the cmos battery, disconnecting the modem card, hard dive. Its only when I unplug the 4-pin connector that the computer does not beep and turn off

Does it sound like the 4 pin connector is good?
Could the mobo be faulty?

If the cable only has one connector then you can buy one with 2 connectors on it.

Yesterday my PC refused to start when I removed my graphics card - hitting the Power On button doesn't start the system running at all

So I did several things. I checked the 24 pin power connector from the PSU to the motherboard and tried to re-fit it again. I also removed the Power Switch connector that connects the switch on the front panel to the motherboard, and re-plugged it in. After that, I managed to boot up the system

but don't know if it'll work, since, like i said before, they're made for fans.
Any help would be appreciated!

P.S. Forgot the mention that the 3-pin connector has 3 wires, not 2.
 

A:Help! What kind of connector is it?

After endless searches, i couldn't find anything similar to that connector. Tried looking for 1-pin and wiring each wire separately but couldn't find those either. So i just soldered the wire back to the terminal, plugged it in and voila.

Hello,
 
I have a HP xw6600 workstation.
The 24 pin power connector which connects to the motherboard was burnt.
I am thankful if you tell me how to provide this connector or what to do.
 
Thank you very much
