Re: the digital input does not work
Make sure that you dont have both VGA and DVI connected at the same time. Just DVI will do. Reboot and see if you get POST. Or te dos screen that the computer dose in the beginning counting somethings.

Your S-Video connection is referring to a round plug for a TV input signal. Most computers will not have this connection unless you have a TV based video card. If your using a TV 'monitor' as your computer's video device, their will either be a button on the monitor or your remote to allow you to choose the input signal. If you are using a VGA or HDMI or DVI cable as the connector between the two devices, most likely, the light is referring to one of these, as its video source. You will need to match the cable & monitor source detected to get a usable picture output.
Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.
Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.
If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps: 1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.
2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure. Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.
3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC. Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI. Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.
Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.
DVI is a Digital Video Input/Interface. I think what happened is you have changed your inputs on your monitor but that is only if your monitor has several different types of inputs. Check for that and if so then switch your input on your monitor.
The pen input is not available on the HP W1907 monitor. I have three of them and Win 7 tells me the same thing but there is no firmware in this monitor that supports pen input. There are other models that HP puts out that do and the driver is the same so the option appears in Win 7 by default. Sorry to give bad news. (trust me, I was excited at first followed by the Aw ****!)
Make sure the correct input is selected. This monitor has both analog (VGA) and digital (DVI) inputs, and it may not be automatically detecting the input you're using. If the proper input is selected and the monitor still says there isn't any input signal, about the only option is to replace the monitor or try to find a replacement signal board from an online source. Most repairs need specialized tools to diagnose and then change the bad parts.
The right side top button is Menu is has a letter M on it. From the menu display select the seventh option using the up and down buttons. Select the「Input Setting」option to change between the analog (D-Sub) or Digital (DVI) source. Enter the option and select Analog or Digital.
First i would look at the monitor settings and make sure its on auto-detect and check to see if it has an analog option and digital option. Its possible your connected with a VGA cable and on the digital option. or On a dvi cable with an analog option. The other possibility is a bad video card on your pc or laptop.
THE ONLY WAY THIS WILL CHANGE IS IF YOU HAVE A DIGITAL INPUT SOURCE CONNECTED to this mointor like HDMI AS THIS MOINTOR AUTOMATICALLY SENSES ANALOG SIGNALS AND DIGITAL INPUT SIGNALS if a digital signal is available it will switch over if a digital input singal is not available you will only be able to use the analog option
