IdeaCentre T540-15ICB G won't detect VGA screen

2020-05-23, 11:14 AM

Hello all,

 

I bought two Samsung LED Monitors to build an online poker setup with my IdeaCentre T540-15ICB G. Seeing there is one HDMI and one VGA port, I bought monitors with both specificity. HDMI linked monitor just works fine but not the VGA linked monitor.

 

I just saw that a VGA driver was in my last updates but still, it won't detect it.

 

Anyone can help?

Second HDMI port?   Sounds like your system has a graphics card installed in PCI slot.  In which case, the integrated video ports are typically disabled.  Monitors must be connected to video ports on the graphics card itself.   Also on some monitors, the input port must be selected via the on-screen menu on the monitor itself.  

 

Mod:  moved thread to the "Gaming Desktop" forum, as this system is considered a gaming system.

Monitors must be connected to video ports on the graphics card itself.  I imagine that the Samsung monitors have video ports that can be connected to the graphics card.
