Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly So i bought this connector because i thought my PC could work with the wire that came with the monitor but it couldn't, i simply did a quick bit of research and ordered it online, came within a couple of days and has worked fine ever since. Its very easy to put on and doesn't look like its wearing out anytime soon.

I want a second monitor that will not mirror my first one. My computer has dvi as the second output (the first one (vga) being taken), will I be able to connect my vga monitor to the dvi output via this product, without mirroring? Thanks

Asked by: Noah
This is a DVI-A cable as long as your pc is DVI-A or DVI-I then the cable will be suitable However if the output of your computer is DVI-D it will not work. The following web page explains the different formats and pin layouts of DVI connectors https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

would this work from a graphics card (dvi) to a tv(vga) ?

Asked by: Theo
Presuming the graphics card has DVI-A or DVI-I not DVI-D then yes this would be fine.
