Preferred Solution: Monitor goes out of sync (shows the analog, digital thing) when in game

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Monitor goes out of sync (shows the analog, digital thing) when in game

Ok, i opened up the heatsink, it was pretty dirty, so i cleaned everything up.
I reinstalled the GPU on its usual port, and it wouldn't give me an image. So i set it on another port, and voila, image. i doubt it fixed my problem though.

I'm gonna report later if it goes out of sync again

I have a HP Slimline PC and a SyncMaster 2343(BWPlus/BWXPlus)(Analog) Monitor. The monitor two connection options. It has a standard VGA & DVI-D Single Link. The PC only has the VGA(BLUE)connection. If I use an adapter,(DVI-D single link male 18+1 to VGA female) will my monitor then switch to digital?

A:How do I get digital rather than analog from my monitor

No sorry, only Analog. Your computer needs DVI_D output or HDMI.

A:LCD Monitor-analog or digital?

I would steer her towards digital as there are adaptors available (pretty cheap I might add) that allows you to connect a DB15 connection (Standard ole' VGA) to a DVI connection. That way she will have the benefit of going digital in the future if she desires. Both of the LCDs I bought even came with one of these adaptors. Also, many of the current cards on the market have both a DB15 and a DVI connector.

I've bought a new samsung monitor and it has ports for VGA (analog) and DVI (for digital?) and my screen resolution was way off compare to the size of my monitor's screen so I thought changing to digital was a way to go but when I checked the back of my PC, it only had VGA port... no DVI port... is there any way for me to change my monitor's resolution to digital? because I heard in order for you to get the digital resolution my PC also need to have DVI port and not just monitor.

Thank you

This is probably a stupid question yet I must ask it.

I have a new Gateway 4831 with a ATI Radeon HD 5770 video card. I am running two monitors off it -an old CRT monitor and a Samsung 932B flat screen. I have downloaded the Manufacturer's Win7 driver. The Samsung can connect to the computer either with a digital DVI cable (digital) or with a VGA (analog) cable. I am currently connected with a VGA cable and with a DVI-VGA adapter hanging off the video card. This is mostly due to the fact that I don't have a DVI cable and do have the VGA cable.

Question: would the monitor perform dramatically better in digital mode with a DVI cable or would any improvement be minor?



Note: I don't have any major complaints with my monitor - I just don't know what I am missing!

Did you get a DVI Cable with the Monitor.
It's best to have the DVI Cable from the VGA Card to the Monitor.

If your VGA Card has no DVI output then you might want to think about getting a VGA to DVI Adaptor

Otherwise it will be OK as it is.

I just purchased the Samsung B2030 monitor. The Geek Squard told me that it should operate in digital rather than analog. When I first turned it on, a box on the screen flashed first Analog and then Digital. I did nothing because I figured that the monitor would be self-adjusting with the PC. (WIN7). Now when I turn on the monitor, the box says Analog before disappearing. My questions are "Should I continue using it in Analog? If not, how do I change it to Digital?"

A:Old resolution setting on a game crashed my computer, and new monitor shows nothing

I'd shut down and reseat the video card, all the monitor swapping may have caused it to become unseated.

After doing that, are you getting anything to display on screen at all (like the POST). If so, you should be about fixed. Just before Windows begins to load start tapping F8, then you'll get the boot menu where most people then go into Safe Mode. Do not go into safe mode, choose VGA mode. Windows will then boot normally, just with a crap resolution. But the correct drivers and everything should be loaded, so then you just set the resolution to what you want and you are fixed.

My new PC has only a digital input in -- it doesn't have an analog connection. Problem is that many of my older camcorder tapes are analog, and the camcorder that plays them doesn't have a firewire or USB out plug of any kind -- just the normal analog plugs. So I can't use my DVD software to copy these and then burn them as DVDs to preserve them.

Is there some kind of analog convertor I can use to plug my analog camcorder into the 1394 plug in my PC? Thanks in advance.

A:Going analog into a digital-only PC

There are a number of solutions to this issue. The thing you need is a video capture PCI card or USB/Firewire video capture adapter. I have the Adaptec VideoOh! and a Dazzle DVC-80 model in the closet, as well as an ATI video capture/TV tuner card.

A:Analog or Digital?

I would expect the digital output would be the best way to go, but, personally, I would have to experiment with it both ways, to see if there was any difference in the sound. Besides, after all this time, I bet you've got them hooked up already, I know I would if it was me, I couldn't wait. I've never used or heard those speakers, but everything I've heard about them is good.

Hi I have a basic IBM Thinkpad model T Out of the headphone jacks I run a splitter and have sound through sets of IBM Infinity speakers speakers in all I recently received a Boston Acoustics BA- speaker setup but I can t get / speakers analog Digital it to work through my PC From reading on-line I believe these BA speakers are digital whereas Digital / analog speakers the Infinity speakers likely are analog or possibly the other way around I can t upgrade or modify the PC itself owned by my employer so new soundcards etc is not an option My question how can Digital / analog speakers I get the BA speaker setup to work with the existing speakers I have in place are there converters etc that I can get from an electronics store that can make them all compatable and continue to drive sound using the headphone jack My understanding is the BA speakers have great sound so I quot m hoping Digital / analog speakers I can somehow add them to the setup thanks nbsp

A:Digital / analog speakers

Hmm; The short answer is you would need a digital sound card and the BA speakers connect to its output.

Physics 101: A device that transforms one media into another is called a transducer.

From the beginning, a speaker has been a stationary magnet and a suspended wire coil connected to a 'cone'.
When the sound amplifier produces an A/C output to the coil, the fluctuating current causes motion and the cone vibrates
to simulate the A/C pattern that was applied - - not perfectly, but good enough to the human ear.

This is the Analog transducer: current is transformed into sound.
The inverse of this design is the phonograph pickup where motion is transformed into a signal.

Another example is our display monitors; originally these were all VGA (analog) and today a great many are digital.

ALL digital systems transduce 0's & 1's back into an analog signal to make the speakers work - - but the raw input has to be 0's & 1's.

Here's a comment from EHOW.COM
Boston Acoustics Ba735 Speakers are high-performance digital loudspeakers designed for connecting to a personal computer or laptop. The computer must have a digital soundcard to be compatible with the speakers, although this is a standard feature on all new computers. Special software drivers are required to run the speakers on older computers. Boston Acoustics Ba735 speakers can also be hooked up to a DVD player with any digital connection, such as a USB port.​

I would like to point out that we no longer have to attach a cable to a CD drive to listen to CD audio. You can now simply tell Windows 2000/XP to enable digital audio. To do this:

1. Right-Click My Computer and choose Manage
2. Click Device Manager
3. Right-Click the CD and/or DVD-ROM drive and choose Properties
4. When the drive properties diaglog box opens, click the Properties tab
5. Select the check box labeled "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM
6. Click OK
7. Close the Computer Management window.

Of course if you like the cable being in there then by all means leave it in there. I don't like it because it used to get caught up in the air flow in my case and I could hear it rubbing a fan or 2.

A:Transfering analog to digital?

Horse droppings! You need a quality system capable of playing the media in question and having line-out capability. Buy the $6 cable at Radio Shack, and download Audacity. Connect the cable from the line-out jacks of your stereo that is playing the media, and to the line-in or mic jack of your sound card. You'll probably have to adjust the sound properties for volume and perhaps enable the input you're using. Fire up Audacity and start recording.

hi blux, welcome to the forums , here is a quote from fellow forum member fishnbanjo

Never say never, I would shut down the PC, remove the power cord, hold the power button in for 30 seconds, remove the video card, place the power cord back in and turn the PC on. Shut down the PC and repeat the process then insert the video card when you get to the point where I said remove it. Put case cover back on and secure, put power back on and boot the PC with a connection ONLY on your DVI and let us know if that restores the video out problem.

In all systems, I've seen, it's either the analog or digital but not both. There may be a system that does allow both, but I haven't seen one. I've worked with RealTek and Sigmatel/IDT Integrated audio systems, SoundBlaster and HT Omega Striker 7.1 sound cards and none will allow both.

You can get a USB Video Capture card rather inexpensively. Or I believe there are some PCMCIA cards that plug directly into your PC Card slot.

A:Difference between analog and digital LCD monitors?

All LCD monitors are digital internally. It is the accepted input that may be analog, digital or both.

I would say, that in normal use, there is no visible difference between an analog or a digital ouput from your video card.

Over long distances or through splitters, digital signal will not lose quality, whereas the analog VGA signal may get worse. This is not an issue for you unless you work in a very noisy environment and/or send the video signal over 20ft away.

You should get a display that supports both kinds of input, so you would have some flexibility.

A:Analog 2 Digital Video Converter


Well, I for one am not terribly familiar with video editing nowadays, ,but I can answer a couple of the questions that you have asked. :giddy:

about the Plextor:
This is a quick overview/review of the product, ,and based on the description it looks like youo will be getting MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 regardless when you convert using this product.

As for Different products, I'm really not to sure. The general assumption is that you get what you pay for, but tis is not always true. Nowadays with technology so fast and rampant, good things do come at inexpensive prices if you can find them. Now for some questions...
Picture quality? Transfer speed?

We'll start with transfer speed. The brief review cites a USB 2.0 interface. While this is a pretty fast way to transfer files, it's really not optimal for large streams of data. I wuld suggest looking into a Firewire (IEEE 1394) capable version of this Plextor, or any brand for that matter Video Converter if your computer motherboard has the option. If your motherboard does not support Firewire, and you have an extra PCI slot, grab a ten dollar IEEE 1394 interface card and get rolling!

As for picture quality, the initial conversion would be very high, ,since it would be DVD quality. The problem lies in converting to AVI so that you can edit it using Ulead. Basically the more times you convert something, ,the lower the quality goes... and you can only convert upwards in quality based on the highest quality capable in the current file. That statement i a little cryptic, so here's an example: I have a 362KBps bit rate MP3, but it takes up waaay to much space. I convert it down to a 128KBps and save me some crazy space. However, now that it's been nerfed to 128, the other data that was in the 362KBps file is now gone, and while I can technically convert back to 362 with my 128 file, the quality will not sound any better because it's missing data, and missing quality.

This example also answers your third question. You can convert so yo can use an AVI in your Ulead, but quality loss may become an issue. In addition, uuncompressing will take up a ton of harddrive space, so be sure to have a massive drive if you plan to do this. Most film editor people that I know won't stand for less than 200 GB nowadays, as real estate is precious when video editing.

Hope you found some of this useful! and good luck with your projects! :grinthumb

My 89-year-old father-in-law got a 24-inch wide screen monitor and I am having trouble finding a resolution that works well for him. The problem is that many of the resolutions produce text and icons that seem to have some blurred pixels, making them unclear and difficult to read.

The two video cards we've used so far are analog only and I'm wondering if a digital card might clear this blurred pixel look. The video cards we've tried was first his old one which had no resolutions for wide screen and then an new analog nVidia FX5500. I hate to buy a card just to find it has no effect on the problem.

The resolution that is proper for his 89-year-old eyes as far as the size of the icons and size of type in the menus is 960 x 600.

Other suggestions welcome.

I think of a digital picture as being so-may pixels high and so-many pixels wide. Scan lines is something I associate with analog devices.

Now I'm seeing digital camcorders that are designated NTSC. I fully understand NTSC uses scan lines and, to me, this analog protocol is foreign to my understanding of a digital camera.

I thought that with the advent of digital television, scan lines were supposed to become relegated to antiquity. Why not the same with digital camcorders?

How do I reconcile these seemingly incompatible formats?

Hey guys

First of all: This is my first post here and I?m really happy to have found a site that might help me with my problems. ( I really love your tutorial section )

Now my problem:

I was used to be able to use the digital as well as the analog output of my soundcard at the same time. (Soundcard is an onboard one with the AC?97 sound chip).

But now running vista I can only use one.

(Sorry for the german language)

Either I choose the analog output to be "standard" (then it has the green tick) or the digital output..

Only the one chosen works then.

Is there any way to get both working simultainiously?
Thanks a lot

Hi everyone, New to the forums.

Everything was fine when I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate x64 until upgraded to latest nVidia driver for my 8500GT - the problem is that randomly every 10 to 40 minutes (varies greatly) there is an error sound and my monitor goes to power saving mode. If I then press the "source" button and switch to analog (both analog and DVI are connected to one monitor) then I can see whats going on but the resolution is all wrong. and it keeps switching back and forth between the two at random intervals - very annoying as you can imagine.
*I have tried rolling back the driver - same problem.
*I have tried completely removing the 8500GT from the device manager, restarting, and reinstalling it. Letting windows choose the most appropriate driver - Same problem occurs.

any suggestions would be highly appreciated!

A:LCD digital vs analog: is DVI worth the extra cash?

It is your eyes that will be looking at the picture..

Analog VGA over a long low quality cable can look very bad, but you may also not be able to tell the difference in better circumstances. The DAC in your video card may be really low quality, you may be using interference-prone resolutions, the ADC in the monitor may be pure crap.. there's a lot of variables.

When I was building my system a year ago from now I made a small mistake, I bought a analog monitor (D-sub) because it was cheap, the monitor is fine but I would like to put a graphics card in it at some point and most don't have a analog output.

My motherboard supports Lucid Virtu which is a program that switches between the integrated graphics (HD 3000) and the graphics card depending on the situation. You keep your monitor plugged into the motherboard not the graphics card (I think).

I can buy the Gigabyte GTX 650 2GB which has a D-sub connector, but I would like something a bit more powerful. So I though I could plug something like a 560 Ti in with no analog output and the Lucid virtu could convert it to analog.

A:What Hardware for Converting Analog Video Tape to Digital?

Since its VHS and Hi8 you don't need anything too expensive for more than 720x480 (or 576) capture. Because Hi8 is good quality, I would probably go with the $90 device since it looks like it does harware conversion as a stand-alone, whereas the cheaper option relies on the computer's transport and processing power. That's an important consideration when using USB 2.0 as the transport protocol in both cases. With hardware conversion outside of the computer, it can be fed down the USB cable as a digital file at leisure, but if the raw video is just converted and fed down the USB cable, there's a chance either quality will suffer or frames will get dropped if the USB transport speed is not consistently fast enough to handle all the data.

To utilize the power of the computer its usually best to get a PCI capture card, thereby bypassing the bottleneck that USB 2.0 can impose.

I just bought a new pc with a flat digital monitor and GeForce 5200 card. The guy at the store said I should connect both the regular VGA cable and the DVI cable (although I don't see why).

Here's the problem:

When I go into the Nvidia interface it seems that there are more settings for the analog monitor than for the digital. For instance, the analog settings allow for greater resolution. When I set the digital settings at a resolution of 1280x1024 - the screen has flickering spots. And the refresh rate on the digital monitor is fixed at 60 hertz while the analog allows the choice of 60, 70, 72 or 75

My question is did I waste money for the more expensive DVI? Is there a noticeable difference between the two? Am I missing something in the setup?Why do the analog settings offer more options?

However when I use the monitor analog cable and use the dvi to analog converter my monitor works fine.

Previously I had an NVIDIA 6200TC card and it was connected to my monitor via a dvi cable with no problems

EDIT: I have connected the monitor to my other computer which has an NVIDIA 6600 256MB via a DVI cable and it works with that computer too.

Is the problem the Monitor or the Card?

A:Monitor only turns on using Analog cable.

Well if it works with another DVI card then it likely isn't the monitor. Will the monitor litterally not turn on (as in, no power light, no nothing) or will it simply not recieve signal or display something?

I have a 1994 Sony Handycam . I was going to unload it because I thought I could not transfer video from the Handycam to my PC. Then I happened upon a site that said:

"It is perfect for transferring your 8mm videos to DVD or VHS, PC or Laptop, or just viewing them. To transfer to DVD recorder or VHS, just use the included AV cable. To transfer to computer, you will need a video converter (analog to digital) such as the ones made by Dazzle(cheap on Ebay)."

So if this information is correct, I have two questions. One-which converter would work with my Handycam and PC (details below). Two-where would be a good place on internet to find one.

If any video experts out there have some info/suggestions I would be very grateful

PC info: Emachines T5226, Windows Vista
Handycam info: CCD TR82

I decided to go with Diamond VC500 One Touch Video Capture Device. It has the hardware I need to hook my camcorder up to my computer (A/V to USB cable), plus it has video editing software.

thanks for any info.

A:Question concerning "enable digital cd audio.." or regular old analog

Digital is the best. Always select the digital. It reads the data digitally off the cd and sends it out digitally through the flatcable at the back of the drive and through the MB to the soundcard where it is converted to Analog. Analog mode is read digitally off the CD, converted to analog by who knows how cheap of a converter(probably less that 20 cents worth of parts), sent to the sound card over 2 thin wires (subject to electrical noise inside the case) connected to the inputs of the anaglog output section of the soundcard directly. Usually some hiss is heard with the latter method.

And you won't need that "CD audio to soundcard cable" if you go digital mode.

Lately i changed my computer's screen resolution (Linux ubuntu) all of a sudden the screen goes black, with the error message "Analog out of range 74.1 Khz / 60 Khz" in the middle. I can access the log-in screen, but after that its nothing. Does anybody know how i could fix this? help much appreciated!

A:Analog out of range error message on my monitor

Did you try pushing the monitor pass it limit of RES?
Did you try changing out the Video card or overclocking it?
Did you change something in the OS driver for Video?

Pretty much that's the cause of why you see that message.

I just bought a new dell XPS 400 desktop with a Dell E196FP monitor. I've had it for 2 days and have been battling headaches the whole time I've been using the monitor. I'm sensitive to refresh rates and getting migraines. This is the first LCD monitor I've used other than my laptops that I use all the time.

I was told to use a DVI cable instead of the analog cable. My video card has that connection but it doesn't look like the monitor does. Any ideas or am I just stuck with analog?

Is there anything else I can change with the monitor that might help? I keep seeing on the web that the refresh rate on LCDs is not the same technology as the CRTs and its not that helpful with this issue.

i have a Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A and on start up i went into its settings by pressing delete.

i set the settings to default and now i cant see anything on the monitor.

so i attached my desktop to my hdtv and it auto synced with it fixing the problem both on the monitor and hdtv (hooked up seperatly)

but then i went back to the same settings while booting up computer i pressed delete and it opened up a list of options that i reset to default.

now its black again, both on my hdtv and monitor.

my question is; is there a way i can get my desktop to auto sync with my hdtv or monitor so that it can recognize it?

computer is fine and not broken, no beep problem no ram problem just a settings problem.

id appreciate any help. thanks.

I have this 'Intel GMA 4500M' video card. I am trying to connect it to my analogue TV. It has a VGA output on the laptop which would mean it would send an analog signal. I have to connect it to the TV through an VGA to RCA adapter on the TV. When I plug it into the TV with a vga to rca connector I do NOT get a picture. So I really don't know if it doesn't support analog or if I'm using the wrong adapter. Is there an analog signal coming out of the video card?

It says on the WEB it also supports dvi but i don't know if that's DVI-D, DVI-I or DVI-A.

Laptop is toshiba L305 S5933

I haven't been able to get my question answered on Google so I am asking here.

About six months ago while playing WOW my monitor went black and lost monitor signal Strange with problem shutting and analog losing down. its analog signal My first thoughts were that it had simply overheated as the fan on the power supply had Strange problem with monitor losing analog signal and shutting down. gone out a while back I could reboot the computer and it would work for a bit lt anywhere from minutes to an hour gt then black out Strange problem with monitor losing analog signal and shutting down. again I replaced the Strange problem with monitor losing analog signal and shutting down. power supply Booted the computer worked fine for a few hours went back on WOW and black out again Next I replaced the video card nope still would go black and lose the analog signal So I finally figured it must be the monitor so I replaced the monitor This seemed to work fine I had no problems for about four months I have NOT been on WOW for four months other than a few quick log ins The first monitor that I thought had a problem I kept I have since tried it on other machines and it blacks out on other machines as well so I was convinced that I had fixed the problem I went on WOW earlier this week and all was well I ran a raid and everything seemed fine Last night however black out again Same thing as the first monitor I am stumped here because the first monitor does not work on ANY machine now Is there anything that the motherboard can be doing that actually damages the analog signal to the monitors and breaks them It is not the video card that too was replaced Is there anyway that WOW can actually break a monitor That just sounds kinda far fetched to me Any ideas would be appreciated Thank you nbsp

I have just installed aoe2 and the conquers expansion pact on my 2 pcs, and patched them both.

When I go to play a multiplayer game it will work for a few minutes and then It will kick us off saying that the game is out of sync. When i had win 98 2nd edition on the pcs I never had that problem.

I have read post after post but have not seen to many fixes for it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this??


A:game out of sync

hey, with XP, there is a built in firewall, try and disable that, both in your computer(s) and if you have router, in that as well.

when i first heard game out of sync, it sounds kind of like 'connection interrupted(CI's)' where you and the server(game host) have lost connection with each other. what kind of internet connection do you have, and if you download and play that soaks up bandwidth and can inhibit 'CI's"

My WD600bb HD (60GB supposedly) Only shows 33.8 GB total. I formatted, fdisked, used the WD utility, and it didnt change anything. What can I try? It works great other than that!

A:Western Digital WD600bb shows less than it should

Depending on which os you`re running will determin how much of the harddrive will be recognised.

I.E Windows 98 only shows about 33gig while 2000 and xp with the correct service pack installed will show all of it.
