I ran into this same issue yesterday when I upgraded from a HD 6770 to a RX 590 nitro.Still using a old VGA monitor id get the same black screen.

I brought a converter from my local computer store but it didnt work, came here to whine about it and stumbled across something that did work.


This worked for me.

-edit, saying your gpu make/model might help narrow down what converter you need as the above might not be it. My knowledge of upto date GPUs isnt amazing but im sure youll know if the item i linked is what you need.

I think the issue is your 1060 has a DVI-D (Digital only) output and the adapter you bought is a DVI-I adapter (Digital + Analog). I believe you need an Active DVI-D to VGA adapter, something like: www.amazon.co.uk/Active-DVI-D-Adapter-Benfei-Female/dp/B07D3XZ9SD/

I hope someone with more experience can confirm or correct me.

Plug the second monitor into the GTX 1070 using an adapter, if necessary.

The GTX 1070 should have multiple outputs. What it has depends on the manufacturer make/model.

If it has VGA out: Use a VGA cable.

If it has DVI-D out:


If it has HDMI out:


If it only has DP out:


These 3 are all unidirectional adapters (meaning they work from DP out to VGA in / HDMI to VGA / DVI-D to VGA, not the other way around) . They should support up [email protected], and all will require a VGA cable.

You'll need something like this. I assume your monitor is vga. Analog going to dvi digital. You'll need an active convert.

Unfortunately, the RX580 does not have an analog output, so you're going to have to go with one of those active converters, which tend to have mediocre resolution support. This one seems to be decent.

As for the "signal timing issues", some cards may output DVI signals with very minimal blanking periods, which exist in the first place because a CRT requires a finite amount of time to sweep the electron beam from one edge of the screen back to the other. If the blanking periods aren't large enough, the CRT will use part of the visible image as the blanking period, since it physically cannot move the electron beam any faster. This may result in the image being messed up around the edges.

If this happens, you'll need to create a custom resolution with the AMD control panel that has sufficient blanking periods. I've never used an AMD card before, but when making the resolution, select the GTF timing mode, which will probably work well for 99% of resolutions and monitors.

I just bought a dvi-D to vga adapter for my old monitor to connect to my pc, but the monitor says no signal and i believe my pc is not recognizing the adapter. Does anyone know what is the problem and how to fix it?

here is the adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D3XZ9SD/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


my motherboard is a Gigabyte - GA-AB350-GAMING 3 ATX AM4

u/jxcvrino · 1 pointr/techsupport


I bought that, it's coming Wednesday. I'll let you know if it works or not.

u/MrKazador · 1 pointr/techsupport

If your gpu doesn't have the extra pins for DVI-A then you need a converter box. Something like this https://www.amazon.com/Active-DVI-D-Adapter-Benfei-Female/dp/B07D3XZ9SD

u/_vogonpoetry_ · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

For DVI-D you need an active adapter (same as HDMI>VGA) like this https://www.amazon.com/Active-DVI-D-Adapter-Benfei-Female/dp/B07D3XZ9SD/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_23_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=4Z13S2DPT8S8JZ716JEM

Or you can use your integrated graphics for the VGA monitor...
