Monitor no longer will switch to Analog (VGA) source.
...This suddenly happened to me when I tried to play my XBOX 360, which uses VGA. Whenever I try pushing to "Source" button, it keeps switching back to Digital (DVI). The only way I can get to VGA mode is if there is a signal in DVI mode, which means I have to turn on my computer every time I want to play my 360.
Why is this all of a happening all of a sudden? I tried using the "Factory Reset" feature in the menu, and have even unplugged the power cable for at least 6 hours, to no avail.
Re: Monitor no longer will switch to Analog (VGA) source.
I just bought the 22" Gateway Monitor and am Having similar problems.
Heres what I found out: Check the recommended cable input \ outputs for your cards and monitor. I know this 22" says it needs a 24-Pin DVI-D Dual Cable, but works with the others.
I'm currently using a 18-Pin DVI-D Single and think that is the problem. My card supports DVI-I Single and Dual, so I would recommend, for myself, DVI-I Dual Link to make sure it has the max power and signal.
Check to see what cable you are infact using, and go to this website to get some info on DVI-Cables: http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html
This is where I found out that I didn't have the cable the monitor required for max input, and might be the solution.
I will post back, but this should get your started.

Good trouble shooting. So it most likely is the monitor. Can you talk to your vendor about a replacement? There could be a voltage problem feeding the monitor. Is it set for the correct voltage? Can you check the voltage feeding the monitor? Other than that, there is a circuit problem in the monitor.
I had a similar problem, the monitor was going blank once in a while (since I don't have a VGA input), so I switched the Auto Source feature to
"Manual" and so far it's working fine for the past 2 days, if I run
into the problem again I'll update this message.
On the side
panel of your monitor, press the top button to access the menu, scroll
down to the setup menu (by pressing the 3rd button down on the panel),
press the 4th button down to enter the setup menu, scroll down to "Auto
Source", use the 4th button to select, "Auto" & "Manual" are your
choices.. press the 2nd button down to select "Manual" then the top
button to exit the menu(s).
This monitor is set up to be able to
do multi display with the software included. Utilizing both Digital and
Analog signals. I'm not using this feature so I'm not sure how
switching the Auto Source off will affect the performance of this
