Hi,

Prior to attaching the SynchMaster and if there is another monitor, pls try lowering the Screen Resolution of your Display Properties. It may also be necessary to lower down the Screen Refresh Rates. In some video card, you may have to activate Twin/Extended view or enable the use of a second monitor assuming that your regular monitor is connected to the standard 15pin VGA and that the Samsung would be the 2nd monitor using the DVI.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I fix the error no vga input signal no dvi input signal monitor going to sleep


Check if you VGA is properly settled in the PCI slot. Try to take it out, clean the slot for dust.
If that doesn't help, it is well possible that you VGA is not working any more.

How do I hook up the moniter to the CPU?


First figure out what output video the computer has. These days it can be VGA, DVI, or HDMI. Then determine what video inputs are on the monitor (same list). Then plug in the desired cable. Many monitors only come with the VGA cable. If you do not have a VGA port on the computer you would need a DVI to VGA adapter to use that cable. Otherwise buy the DVI or HDMI cable. (DVI to HDMI cables exist if you have HDMI but no DVI on the monitor and only DVI on the computer. However, you need to check your video specs closely. A Single link DVI is different than Dual-link DVI and the cables are not interchangeable.)

Once the data and power cords are plugged in, power up the monitor and then the computer. The computer should find the new hardware and install (or ask for a disc to install) the drivers.

I hope this helps.

My monitor says there is no signal from my new Dell Studio


Try reseating the video card in your new computer. Sounds like it may not be seating in the slot properly. Take it out and put it back in with the power off and then hook everything back up and then see if you get video,.

Hi my lcd suyama 17" computer monitor will not turn on. the green light next to the `on` button flashes but apart from that there is no life at all.


Its not getting a signal from your video card or onboard video.

Are you connected by a VGA cable or a DVI Cable. Or does it have an adapter from VGA to DVI?

Check and see if the moniotr it set to DIGITAL instead of ANOLOGUE. If so, switch to the other.

If you press the monitor settings buttons, does anything show like options to adjust contrast?

If so then it most likely your computer.
