I recently bought one of these HDMI(Male) to DVI-I(Female) adapter to connect my PS3 to my computer monitor. I got a AOC 2217V(HDCP capable) monitor which has a DVI-D and a D-SUB connector. I didn't buy a cable because i just used my current DVI-D cable.

So i plugged the adapter into the ps3 and the DVI-D cable into the adapter then to the monitor. Turned the PS3 on and no picture.
I then plugged the rca plugs into my tv at the same time as the monitor thinking it could be the settings so i navigated the the display setting and changed it to HDMI output.. Still no result, just a blank screen with sound.

I have no idea what is wrong with my setup.
The only reasons i can come up with is DVI-D cannot plug into my DVI-I adapter and work or that the dvi-D plugged into a DVI-I does not work with my monitor.

Anyone can see any problems with my problem?

I also uploaded some images of my gear. (taken with my phone)

I can see from Pricespy that the monitor you are using isn't capable of 1080P, only 1680x1050 (16:10 ratio) rather than a native (16:9 ratio).

I had a similar idea myself, but opted for a 24" CMV that does native 1080P and has 2xHDMI ports to avoid this type of problem.

My only suggestion is that it either is unable to detect or select a compatible resolution to work with the PS3.

What type of screen do you normally use the PS3 on? CRT or LCD?

Does the monitor support HDCP? I doubt you will get anything from the PS3 without HDCP

Edit: Learn to read OP!

Plug in the the HDMI/DVI cable.
Then when turning on the system, just hold down the power button for FIVE seconds.
It should beep at you and then restart over whatever cables you've hooked it up with.
See if that work's as it should reset the video output.

I think this is the right idea.  When you chose HDMI in the output settings, what compatible resolutions did it come back with?  Either 720p or 1080p?  Maybe (likely) your monitor doesn't support either of those resolutions.

I don't think there'd be much point doing the five second power button trick, because you are able to see the settings using the other cable.  That is really only necessary when you can't see the settings to change them.

Yeah, i can actually just change the settings from my tv then switch it to my monitor as i can plug it into both at the same time. But the picture doesn't come up. My monitor seems to pick up a signal though, i know this because it turns on when i turn the ps3 on and the screen is just black. But something weird happens when i plug the rca thingy into the ps3 when it is connected to my monitor, the screen for some reason goes white. I don't know what that is.
I think that my monitor doesn't support the resolutions.. ahh well, it was worth a try.
Thanks for the help anyway.
