Question about Planar DOME C3 20.8 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

I have two Dome C3 monitors I am trying to connect to a new Nvidia Quadro 2000D through dual-link DVI-D cables. No joy so far. Do I have to have a Dome DX-class video card for C3s?

Both monitors have power supply, both flash in startup during boot of the computer. The Dome C3s are connected with DVI-D cords into the DVI A ports (there are A and B ports). PNY says their Quadro 2000D will support newer Dome monitors, but does not list the C3 as supported. There is a color monitor on the mobo's integrated VGA port, and the display setup in Windows 7 shows 3 monitors, and gives appropriate resolution for the two C3s, but I get no signal on either monitor.

    After further discussion with NSI Surgical Inc. tech support, the C3 and C3i models require the Dome DX or DX2 video card. They will not work without it, Brandon from NSI said, "Some of the circuitry needed to run the monitors is on the DX or DX2 card."

    So basically, what we have here is a proprietary system. The newer Dome monitors will work with the Quadro 2000, but not the older ones.

SOURCE: Planar PE191M monitor display will not stay on

iv come across this before sometimes people can see that the monitor is actually working but the light has gone out id say bad capacitors that are breaking down. if you want to DIY it take it apart and find the light pcb usually built on the power supply pcb and look for bulging or swolen capacitors this happens alot in my opinion. if you can DIY it get the same caps or same value but better ones. I might be wrong but worth a look

SOURCE: My Planar PL1910M monitor will not show pictures


first of all the problem is not with the monitor...
its probably a corrupted BIOS
(basic i/p o/p systems) its the chip in the motherboard which stores the configuration of your system...

one way to get around this is to,
open the case of your CPU
then on the motherboard there will be a small battery, which is called the CMOS battery ...
take out the battery from its slot...
after a minute put it back in the slot..

now you shold be able to work fine because the BIOS loads with default setting...

if this one works please give a vote

Screen flickering on windows 7 boot

This is more than likely an issue with the monitors themselves. Does this happen on the main monitor is you move the secondary cable over to it? What kind of monitors are you using, how old are they, and do you know the refresh rates on them?

What type cable do I need to connect the monitor to a hp xw4600 computer?

An out of the box HP xw4600 has a NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 video card which uses a DVI cable. You have to make sure your monitor supports DVI. A WHITE connector is for DVI while a BLUE connector is for VGA. Some monitors have both while many older models only support VGA.
