Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Bought Samsung 2233BW Monitor, hooked the two plugs, power and DV1 cord started computer and switched on monitor, NOTHING HAPPENED. Silly thing just unhooked Samsung and hooked back up the AOC monitor no problems


Answers :

You might need to go into the monitor's setup menu and select the digital input. (That's DVI, by the way, for Digital Video Input, and not DV1.) Some monitors automatically detect the input but not all of them. Obviously, this doesn't apply if the Samsung has only a DVI input. It might also be necessary to tell the video card to turn on the DVI output. You can do this with your old AOC connected and use the video setting utility supplied with the video card.

I have a BL51 Acer Aspire. When I power it up the screen is just blank. I do see the light on showing HD activity,but nothing on the screen. My first thought would be a faulty LCD inverter!
