My monitor works with my old computer but not with my new one
When I turn on my new Dell computer, it just says that my Samsung SyncMaster 151P monitor is not connected to my new Dell Inspiron 530. But my monitor works, so do I need a new driver? How can I get my flatscreen to work with my new Dell Inspiron? Need suggestions. And to top it all, my CD is not working on my old computer so I can;t use the CD to do anything. HELP?

There are no drivers on the Samsung site that I could find.
That said, you don't need drivers for your monitor. If your monitor isn't displaying anything with your new computer, try turning your computer completely off, make sure your monitor is turned on and plugged in to the computer, then turning the computer back on. Windows should automatically detect what resolutions the monitor supports and your monitor should start working.
Most of the time when this happens it is due to a bad monitor, if you have another pc try to hook this monitor up to that one to see if it actually works, these monitors sometimes get damaged during shipment!
