Question about ViewSonic VX2255 Monitor
I have a viewsonic vw 2255wmb, and its been working fine. I have it connected to my pc (asusen8800gt graphics card) via a DVI connection. The monitor sits in standby mode and when i turn on the PC up it comes (little blue light turns red and I get a picture). However when I turned it on yesterday the pc powered up but the monitor did not, displaying the message"no digital input" or words to that effect. Idid the usual turn it of check the cables etc but no joy. I then got an old lcd monitor and plugged that into the PC via the same socket but using a DVI-Dsub adapter and an old Dsub cable and it worked fine. i then then disconnected and plugged in the viewsonic in the same way, using its optional d-sub input on the viewsonic and it worked fine also, but obviously not in "digital" mode so the screen is noticably less crisp. I'm going to buy a new cable this afternoon as it's the cheapest place to start failing that i'm lost
Same problem this morning. wondering if the money i spent was well or not.

I had the same problem, you must call Viewsonic to change your screen. The DVI input on the screen is dead.
