  • Display out issue on 1070

    Afternoon all. I recently bought a 1070 but i seem to be having an issue getting the DVI output to work.

    I have two monitors, a Dell connected via display port and an old 17" thing connected via a DVI to VGA adapter. But that doesnt display anything.

    One of the pins in the DVI adapter looked bent when i bought it. But i straightened it out. It fits fine and as far as I can tell it hasnt caused any damage on the card. But I just cant get it to display anything.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers all!

    10x0 series are digital output only. The DVI is DVI-D only not DVI-I as used by your adaptor hence the bent pins where it was forced in.

    You will need a Display port to VGA adaptor or and HDMI to VGA adaptor
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

      I bought a DVI-D adapter specifically for it. It fits fine in the back of the gpu. One of the pins was bent on arrival, not from forcing it in.

        please post a pic of the connectors on your gpu.

          I do have an intermittent issue with my 1070 that it fails to display on Windows boot, apparently pretty common and is always resolved with a reboot, not sure if this is at all related?

            I have exactly the same thing on my 1060.

              It would work if you'd bought an active VGA>DVI converter.. It could be that, I guess? There's a lot more going on inside an active converter than a passive one, which is essentially just changing the socket shape.

                As others have said above, it's cause the 1070 has dvi-d not dvi-i, it lacks the 4 pins around the flat piece of the connector.

                You need active converter.

                  As I have already said... Its a DVI-D adapter.. It wasnt forced in either. One of the pins was slightly bent when I opened the DVI-D adapter. So I straightened it, and it fits fine.

                    Just because it fits, doesn't mean it's the right one - it needs to be "active" to confirm the digital signal to analogue. The correct one is likely to have the DVI connector, and short amount of cable, a little box of tricks and then the VGA output.
