Samsung 216BW BLANK. Help me troubleshoot?
I bought two Samsung 216BW monitors over the weekend. I gave one to my Mom, who just started grad school, and the 2nd was for myself. The one I gave my mom works wonderfully, and this is a BEAUTIFUL monitor. The one I tried installing on my new system does NOT work despite everything I have tried.
I am wondering if anybody has any troubleshooting ideas to help me out. Obviously my first move as soon as I get home is to test the non-working 216bw on my mom's system, to see if it works there. If it does, then I know the monitor is good and the system is incompatible.
What other kinds of troubleshooting can I try? It was driving me nuts last night.
The DVI output didn't work even though I have a DVI vid card on my mom's set up. It didn't work until I tried VGA. On my setup, neither DVI nor VGA worked.
