    I just checked devices and printers in the control panel and it says the monitor in analog.
    Is this a conflict with VGA and will it be with DVI should I upgrade the PC?
    No need to upgrade PC, I use a DVI-I to VGA adapter and works great. VGA is fine, or you could get a DVI-I to VGA adapter for like $10 and try that instead. But VGA is analog, that's why it is saying that.

    So if I get a now PC I will go DVI to DVI - I guess i could do it now with a new cable as I have a DVI port. It has 24 pins a space then 4 pins at the PC.

    Does your monitor have DVI?

    Oh, ok great, I would just go to a Best Buy store (anywhere that has them is fine) and go pick up a DVI-I cord. You said it has the 4 pins and has a horizontal line, like this?:

    But you don't have to buy a completely new PC, better off getting a cable for around $20 is all. But if you want a new PC, then go for a new PC --> then it has DVI and HDMI (not sure about VGA anymore )

    I was only saying if I got a new pc.
    A cable will suffice.
    Thank you for the photo of the DVI-I
    dual link. Now I know what it is called.
