Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 171 P (Silver) 17" LCD Monitor ?

Using syncmaster 171P as second monitor with iMac

\015 I have a new iMac and am trying to set up my SyncMaster 171P as a secondary monitor. \302\240I've connected the 171P to the iMac using a mini DVI to DVI adapter, the iMac recognizes the 171P but the screen on my 171P remains black - with a floating window reading "No Connection...Check Signal Cable". \302\240The 171P monitor works when I connect it to my PC using the regular monitor connection cable (i.e. not the mini DVI) but at this point in my configuration I don't have this plugged into anything.\015\012\015\012What am I doing wrong?\015\012\015\012Any help would be appreciated.\015\012\015\012\015

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 931c monitor (2.5 yrs old). Sporadically during the last month, I'd lose the screen image and get vertical stripes on the display. I'd turn the monitor power button off and on and the screen image would return OK. This morning, however, upon first use, I get no image on the monitor at all....just a white screen.
