Default Display Problems on Dell System.

I am genuinely stumped as to what the problem could be. I cant for the life of me figure it out.

I'm getting no constent picture from the Dell System in question. It comes on then goes off after three seconds at most.

I have changed the BIOS Battery, Tried the on board Graphics. Tried a dedicated card. Changed monitors. Changed cables. Changed cable connection types from VGA to DVI.

Put more memory in the system and then less memory in the system.

The system it self is a Dell E520 and its got my head boxed and in bits.

The only thing I can think of its a problem specific dell thing because my 15" VGA Dell monitor works on it fine but my Samsung Syncmaster and one other monitor is just not playing ball.

I've tried changing the Res on it and still nothing.

Has anyone any ideas because I'm all out. I just cant figure it out.

You said, that You changed monitor, but did You installed also the monitor driver or thought that the old driver will work?
