I saw something that hinted that the DVI port might be an optional
thing on a riser card. Perhaps you don't have that -- or it's lying

That's a slightly odd combination -- a parallel port (old tech) and a
DisplayPort (new tech) but no DVI (intermediate in age between the
previous ones).

OK. I wouldn't know, I am a Brit in the Czech Republic. The only US
city I know at all is NYC and I've only been there twice.
