here is the simple test to detect hardware malfunction. on every monitor these days whether its CRT or LCD already programmed inside self test. detach your cable data to CPU and power on your monitor. if its displayed self test on your screen mean its OK and something wrong with your CPU, could be VGA error.
if its just black display mean some is wrong with your monitor.
if you post more detail maybe we in FIXYA could help. thanks.
The computer has VGA, DVI-I (dual link) and HDMI ports. The monitor has VGA, DVI and HDMI but only came with a VGA cable. Some computers have recently come with shielding covering all of the
ports except the one that is currently live. Thus, check your hardware;
the computers I've seen with only one active port, the HDMI port was
active before resetting the video options. So get an HDMI cable (it will provide the best signal in addition). If the DVI-I port is currently live, you should get that cable as well and then change the settings to enable the HDMI port.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (you do not need to get the super-expensive cables; the low end ones will be fine. However a single link DVI cable is not the same as a dual link cable; sometimes using the wrong cable leads to no signal to the monitor.)
If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck
That is very weired, chose another type of conection with you videocard and monitor ex: hdmi cable if you have a hdmi output.
If not check the options of your monitor slow down the frequency to 60hz. I advise you to get another smal tft monitor from one of your friends to test may be thers a problem with your video card.
