AMD R7 240 giving static on monitor

Discussion created by michaelhush@outlook.com on Dec 29, 2015

I bought my new pc a couple months ago and have been running it on the integrated graphics from my cpu (AMD A8-7650K Radeon R7, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G). Everything was fine with this however i mostly use my pc for gaming so figured i would buy a graphics card to try boost my FPS.


I bought the AMD R7 240 in the hope it would improve things however im getting some display issues.


My monitor is the LG20M35 and only has a VGA connection so i have connected it to my graphics card using this. This is where my problems start.


Once im connected everything looks fine but if you take a closer look at the monitor its like there is static/noise behind the display. My monitor works perfectly when its not connected to the graphics card.


I have all the latest drivers installed so im really not sure whats causing this.


Any idea's?
