seems like the display resolution
please plug in the old monitor and set the resolution to 1024 x 768
then connect the new monitor
and adjust the resolution easily displays on your new monitor
Sorrry for the delay . The computer I want the Samsung Display has a Windows 7 home edition & is a Dell Inspiron. I assume I will want a new resolution
but check the maximum supported by your monitor
may be its going beyond the limit thus not displaying anything
Not sure I understand.
do you have old monitor
which was working fine with computer?
Yes. I'm using that on the new computer system
from the remote are u switching to vga mode?
or to pc?
you will have to change it to use with computer
it wont throw display automatically
press the third button from the right it will changes the source from DVi to VGA connection
I assume that I use the old monitor to set the display. Don't know which I used but made the change based on the XP & not windows 7
did you try to switch to VGA mode
as mentioned earlier?
The Vga is in the computer or the monitor?
Don't I need data for Windows 7
Resolution Data. Is it different than XP
no you dont need resolution data
you need to change the mode to vga on your monitor
you will see it in its remote
is the cable properly connected?
I did that several times before when I had the Samsung connected to the new computer. Nothing happened. Yes it was
change it to vga mode
make sure cabled are properly connected
and restart computer
I need to hook it up to the old computer, otherwise we can't talk.
I did what you said. Hit the third the right & restarted the computed . No display. Hit button again. Nothing
Which mode - analog or digital
In digital. No other display.
There is menu button. But does not seem to work.
do you remember the resolution of your old monitor?
Sorry, I don't . I reset it to 1024 768
still if it does not show then i am afraid its cabling issue
I can switch cables & see
please and keep it to vga mode
Ok. Will go off for a few minutes
I made the switch with the cables. No change. The Samsung cable is now in use with the old monitor.
i dont think i have much to add now
i will opt-out for other experts to help you
I will require to break the connection. I will reconnect tomorrow. Steve Schuster
The Samsung monitor does not work on another Dell, with windows XP. The previous Dell (replaced) had Windows XP.
I had no luck with the new cable & slot. Clearly it is a mechanical problem with the Samsung. I believe there is a year limited guaranty, so I expect to return the screen to Samsung for repair. I was able to find an older Dell monitor which is working fine. Steve
