I have pushed different buttons on the monotor and I get no response. and after a few seconds the monitor act like it is in sleep mode and the light blinks orange. Can you help me or did I just get a bad monitor? Thanks
Your monitor is operating normally. After Windows starts it is setting the video resolution to something outside of the monitor's range. That's why you see the Windows splash screen, then the message from the monitor about the settings. Most likely the computer was used before with a monitor that had a wider range of resolutions available.
Restart the computer. When the manufacturer's logo screen appears, press the F8 key three or four times. This should get you a startup menu screen. Pick the option of starting in VGA mode, and Windows will start with video settings that your monitor supports.
