Vga help
« on: July 25, 2017, 10:20:37 AM »
Just upgraded my vga card so i can play Witcher 2 in hd. Card works ok but couple minutes after turning on the computer the picture starts to wave. Very little but it waves. Checked the connection and all good. Cannot see what causes this interference. When I stop the game and go back to Windows couple minutes later the waving disappear.  Heat issue.  Any ideas?

Are you using the same monitor as before? Are you using a different/new kind of connector for this graphics card vs. the previous one? HDMI vs. DisplayPort vs. DVI vs. VGA? Do you have any speakers near the monitor?

Same monitor,  same cable. No unit near by that can cause it. The only change there is the card. Perhaps I will replace the vga cable with an hdmi one. There is 2 different hdmi on the card.

HDMI would certainly be ideal. If you're really using a VGA cable and port it's analog and way more susceptible to interference.

Yes I figured the same things. Tku. Time to buy a new cable
 Perhaps its time to connect to my TV. (hdmi)
