Question about Dell Dimension XPS PC Desktop
When I plug my Dell 3007WFP 30" monitor monitor into back of Dell 410xps computer via a dual DVI cable, the monitor power light turns orange.
I have tried with another DVI dual cable and another 30" dell monitor and same issue.
I even had the nvidea 7900gs graphics card replace d twice twice and same issues.
If I attach a vga - dvi adapter to computer, my VGA monitor works just fine.
I do not see the DELL logo with the 30" monitors.
Where am I going wrong in the settings ?
The 7900GS does have Dual-Link DVI connectors, but many of them did not support full Dual-Link capability that is required for the 30" display.
Your Video Cards may not support the display, I would try them elsewhere or replace it with a more recent 8000 or 9000 series card

That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.
