I'm posting this thread so that future inquiries of this type might be able to figure out what's up. I also took some pictures. Someone had an FM1 ITX board with a DVI port, and a DVI monitor, and a DVI cable. And they wouldn't work together. Well, as it turns out, there are different types of DVI ports and cables. Here's a good reference site: http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html The most common, are DVI-I ports on video cards, and on motherboards that have both VGA, DVI, and HDMI, the DVI port is usually DVI-D. Well, if you are using a DVI-I cable, it WILL NOT plug into a DVI-D port without an adaptor. This is because the DVI-I cable has four pins around the "blade" for the analog video signals, and the DVI-D connector on the motherboard lacks those sockets and signals, so you can't plug it in. You must use a DVI-D cable (more common) to plug into a DVI-D connector on a mobo. You can also plug a DVI-D cable into a DVI-I port. Here's some pictures: 1) Mobo with DVI-D port. Note no sockets around the "blade" part of the connector. 2) Video card with DVI-I port. Note the sockets around the "blade" part of the connector. 3) DVI-D single-link cable. Note the lack of pins around the "blade". Sorry, I don't own a DVI-I cable to show you a picture of.
