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

Hi there. Please view this item

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.

Me bad. Bought a new cheap MB (Biostar tforce 550) which has only one IDE connector.
But I want to connect an optical drive and a spare IDE HD.
I remember that using one IDE cable for the two could cause problems, and a hit in performance.
The first I think can be corrected by putting the HD first. But how big is the performance hit?
Does it only occur when using the optical drive?

I have a problem. I had an old PC running Win98, and the C drive went bad. I had some photos and music on another drive. I purchased a new computer, running WinXP. I also purchased one of the USB to IDE converters so I could plug the drive with the pics into my new system and recover the pics, etc. My system recognizes the drive being attached to the USB, but I can't seem to access the info on the drive. Am I missing something, or perhaps it's impossible to recover the pics since I'm now running WinXP instead of Win98? Any help would be appreciated, since I'd hate to lose the pics! Thanks,

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.

The motherboard I'm purchasing has one IDE connector, but I have two IDE devices that I want to connect. There's the 250GB hard drive, and my DVD burner.

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

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?

Thanks for any help here,

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?

The extra 12V connector is used to supply the additional power needed for modern processors. It started with the P4s, however many Athlon boards use it also.

Some newer AMD64 and Prescott processor boards use the 24 pin atx connector instead of the 20 pin connector. Again this is to supply extra power.

I got the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector to get wi-fi in my Wii and DSi for some pokemon games, and it used to work fine, then it started acting weird.

At first, I had it installed into my Windows XP desktop and it worked okay, other than the fact that I would have to take down my Firewall everytime I wanted to use it. THen I got a Windows Vista laptop, which I am currently using and it caused me a lot of problems.

The first time I downloaded it, it took me 2 hours before it finally worked. I don't know what I did differently for it to work, but it did, and I installed no drivers for it for windows vista, because this USB is a Windows XP device. So, I'm still confused on how it worked for a while in the first place.

Yesterday, I went to go into wi-fi on my pokemon platinum game and it said "No Access Point in Range." I knew this had to be wrong, because I had my laptop opened up and right next to me. Then I noticed that it wasn't lit up green and my laptop wasn't connecting it. So, I popped in my sofftware disk, waited for it to reinstall, and the weirdest error message popped up.

Hello Kelvin,

Yes, you would connect the new 24-pin PSU connection to the board with all 24 pins. Depending on the PSU you get, it may a one piece 24-pin or 20+4 pin connection. Here's some more detailed information about the ATX motherboard standard and 24-pin connections to help out more with this.

Hope this helps,

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

I'm just asking out of curiosity, because I suspect that it could have been the loose power switch connector, but what will happen if the 24-pin connector is not plugged in properly? Will the system still start up?

I am attempting to build a server and using a supermicro SC733T-450 case and a asus NRL-LS533 motherboard. When you look at the board on the asus site it shows a 24 pin power connector which is what I need for the server case.

However, I ordered the board from Mwave.com and it only has a 20 pin power connector. The manual shows a 20 pin connector also so why do they show 24 pin on the asus site? Did I get an older board or something? The specs on thier site also show a 24 pin connector http://www.mwave.com/mwave/SpecB/BA19507.html

So I guess I should return the board and get one with a 24 pin connector or could I get an adapter?

Thanks,
George

The more I learn about this stuff, the more bewildered I get.

I have a couple monitors that have both VGA and a DVI-D ports.

I was looking at DVI X HDMI adapters and found that many of the ones I see are DVI-D 24+1 with 24 pins and a blade.

The DVI-D cable connector that fits my monitors has only 18 pins and the blade, with two sets of 9 pins and a vacant space in between.

I guess I could move a bunch of stuff, dis-connect all the cables, and turn one of these monitors bottom-side-up to see if there are six unused pin-holes; but I figured it would be easier to just ask those far smarter than me.

Will a DVI-D 24+1 connector connect to the DVI-D 18+1 port on these monitors and work, or are they a horse of a completely different color ?

Thanks for reading.
