Re: Some troubleshooting steps for my monitor?
I had a similar problem w/ mine. Everytime I connected the DVI cable it would go into standby mode. What I did was connect the both VGA cable(into the primary display port) and DVI(into secondary), boot into windows, go into display settings, both DVI and VGA should still be connected and then choose monitor 2 as my primary which should be the DVI connection. Unplug the VGA connection and you should be all set. This is all assuming that you have both VGA and DVI on the back of your monitor. If you have HDMI like I do just follow the same steps
