Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Monitor rejects computer

\015 When i turn on my monitor (connected to AC), its "on" light turns green when it is not connected to computer power. Normally it turns green when connected to a computer and working. Green is the default color for "no computer plugged in." When i plug my dell dimension xps p100c (the tower part of the computer) into the monitor, the "on" light turns yellow, indicating that the monitor is in sleep mode. Nothing comes up on the screen. When i plug my old MS-DOS computer into the monitor, everything works perfectly. My dimension xps p100c is running windows 95.\015

Answers :

I'm just guessing, but it could be that the resolution you are using on your MS-DOS monitor is not compliant with the new monitor you are trying to use. Check the supported resolutions of the monitor that you would like to use, and then make sure you set that resolution before switching monitors.
