ialso have have another pc running a geeforce 3 64mb which will run on my 19"

Hello come across this before.
Once it was due to a fact i had not setup
in the bios what the primary card was to be used in the bios ie bus type.
Eg. Onboard, Agp or Pci-E
another is to make sure that in the bios you can switch off onboard graphics, on the motherboard.
And last one is if the radeon has two DVI ports for out put try switching from one to the other.
The only thing left is to say it`s the radeon not sending a sync signal at the right Volts
for the monitor to kick into full power up.
Some iiyama's have 2 inputs. One DVI and one analog. Also, some of the older ones used BNC connectors. What I'm getting at is make sure you have the right input selected in the monitor's menu.
Hope this helps....JF

Hello there I would first try the monitor on a different computer and if it works if it does than you know that the video card on the computer is either bad or needs to be removed and cleaned and than reinstalled more than likly it will need a new card or if you have built in card than you will have to get a new card and install it on the board in one of the pci or agp slots ok? If you need any more help on this pleas feel free to post a comment to me on this ok Best regards Michael
First shut down the pc and then plug in new monitor then boot up and see if windows 7 will auto find the monitor.
is this a single display or are you using 2 monitors, i had 2 monitors and used the other to change the display on mine when i had this problem i am also using windows 7 and reboot usually fixes display problems because it wont see old monitor any more and detect the new one.
also update any video drivers you have like nvidia or ati(catalyst controll center)
HELLO THERE: please try these things first ok? try to plug the monitor in to a different computer and see if it works if it does than you know that you might have a problem with your video card if it does not work you will have to consider getting a new monitor ?
if the monitor does work in a nother computer. Unplug the computer and open the case look for the power supply wires that go to the mother board and remove for about 3 minutes during this time press the power on button and the reset button this will release any (esd) that may have built up now plug in the power supply cord back to the mother board now plug in the computer and try to start the computer if it works great but if not. turn off thecomputer and unplu find the the video card and remove it and clean the edge that goes into the slot with rubbing alcohol and dry it also blow out any dirt and debris that may have collected in there now reinstall the card you might even want to try to pout it into a different slot if it has a seperate slot for it ok? Hook up the monitor to the computer and restart and see if this worked if not i am sorry to say but you will have to replace the video card ok? i really hope that this is verry helpfull for you. best regards michael
Restart your system and keep tapping the F8 Key as soon as you start the system. you should be at an advanced OS options menu, select SafeMode with VGA and proceed to logon to windows. Once in windows, right click on your desktop > properties > Settings > reduce settings to 800x600 > click OK > restart system. Now the display should be back on the monitor. Now read the manual to understand the highest supported resolution for this monitor + set the same as mentioned before on your system.
Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.
I would first suggest that you verify the video cable and connector are okay.
The connector should look like the one in the photo with no missing or bent pins.
if you can plug in another monitor, that would help rule out the PC.
After that, it would probably need component-level troubleshooting, probably in the video or signal circuits.
Did you uninstall your old graphics card driver first,if not try starting up in safe mode(pressing F8 on boot up)and hopefully you can uninstall your old driver through ADD/Remove programmes.
Try booting again and install drivers from instalation CD.
If you did not have an old graphics card and you were using your onboard graphics display, you will have to connect back to the VGA port you previously used and enter the bios(pressing F2 or DEL on boot up) and enabling your AGP card as the primary display device in the 'Advanced Chipset Features'.
Press ESC and it will ask if you want to save settings on exit ;press 'Y'.
Connect monitor back up to your new card,boot up and install drivers from your installation CD.
