I got my hands on this: Gateway® GM5420 (The specs: Gateway Support - Specifications
). Today, I went out & bought this: Acer 18.5 Wide Monitor (Acer 18.5-inch Wide LCD TFT Monitor (16:9 HD, 5ms, VGA, 10000:1): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
I connected everything as required, but when I turn the monitor on first, and then the power switch, my monitor says "no signal." I've tried unplugging everything from the wall and the extension cord, switching the placement on the extensions, and some other things.
Does it matter that the Acer monitor is VGA? Do I need to go exchange my monitor to a DVI capable monitor, or buy those converter thingies?
I'm in desperate need of help!
