Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I bought a new computer and my existing Samsung 24 inch flat screen monitor doesn't work with it. I see 6 buttons on the front of my monitor but I don't know how they work. Unfortunately, if a manual came with the monitor I don't have it. NOTE: This monitor works fine with my "old" Dell Latitudes computer which uses an analog cable to the monitor. This monitor does not work with my "new" Dell XPS 630i computer which uses a digital cable. Can you tell me if I need to change some setting on the mo


Answers :

If you have the (white connectors) DVI cable correctly plugged into the computer, when you turn the computer on, it should recognize it and make the needed changes automatically. Maybe not if the PC was already on even though it's plug&play.
