The monitor will turn on and work fine with a VGA input, but when connecting it with DVI it will turn itself off. This is the second (F1903) monitor to do this, the first was a warranty return. I have switched both video cards and DVI Cables. I appreciate any help/advice that can be offered.

in this situation, there are two options. 1.The device connected to your TV via DVI cable is off. 2. DVI cable connected to the HP L1950 is burned.
if you try to connect a device to the HP L1950, it has two ways to connect:
Input Signal - Two connectors: one 15-pin mini D-sub analog VGA and one DVI-D. Try VGA them.
Connection the monitor depends on the connections you have out of your Toshiba laptop.
The monitor has both VGA and DVI.
If the Toshiba has a VGA out, all you need is a VGA cable available online, computer or electronics store.
If the Toshiba has an HDMI out, you can connect it to the DVI on the monitor with an HDMI cable and an HDMI to DVI Adapter.
You can also use USB out with either a VGA converter or a DVI converter (go with DVI for the better picture). Converters can be found online at Amazon, you may also need a standard male to male DVI cable to use with the converter.
nVidia GeForce 7300 GT (256mb) Video Card
You can get one for dirt cheap on Newegg.com
Or your local PC store/Repair shop.
The Problem you are having is your Video Card Driver isn't the correct one, or it's got issues...
You should get a better video card.....yours might be onboard or really low-end rated.
Pre-Manufactured PCs generally ****..... I build WAY better PCs for less.
HPs ****, but not as bad as a Dell (Dell does make the best pre mf 'd Servers which is ironic!)
but the worst pre mf'd PC I've ever fixed was a GATEWAY........
Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
