Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues

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 ?

Thanks
Vinod

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

Vinod,
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.

What is the best way to connect 2 computers to this monitor


If you have two separate computers for different purposes, such as personal and work use, you may find it convenient and necessary to connect both to a single monitor. Many monitors have dual inputs, making such a connection simple. However, you might need a keyboard, video and monitor switch to accomplish this task if the monitor lacks a second input. Dual Inputs
Step 1 Examine the back of your monitor for the presence of dual video inputs, such as a single VGA and DVI or HDMI output.
Step 2 Connect the VGA cable to one computer. Plug the other end of the cable to the matching input on the monitor. Rotate the retaining screws until tight at both ends of the cable.
Step 3 Plug the DVI or HDMI cable into the back of the second computer. Insert the other end into the monitor's digital video input. Screw down the retaining screws if you're using DVI.
Using a KVM Switch
Step 1 Ensure both computers are turned off. Place the KVM switch on your desk where it is within convenient reach.
Step 2 Locate the video output port on the back of the KVM switch. Plug a VGA cable into this port. Plug the other end of the VGA cable into the monitor.
Step 3 Plug the VGA monitor outputs from each computer into the inputs on the back of the KVM switch. Tighten the retaining screws down for each connected VGA cable on the computers and the KVM switch.
Step 4 Plug the keyboard and mouse cables into their respective outputs on the KVM switch. Plug each set of keyboard and mouse cables from their ports on each computer into the matching inputs on the KVM switch. Plug each cable in sequentially to avoid mixing them up between machines.
Step 5 Double-check that the mouse, keyboard and monitor cables leading from each computer all correspond to the right machine. Plug the KVM switch's power cord into a nearby AC outlet or power strip.
Step 6 Turn the computers and monitor on to verify the connections are correct.

Required Items

  • VGA cable
  • DVI or HDMI cable
  • KVM switch
  • Power strip (optional)

Completley blank screen on boot up


you didnt mention the brand of the screen. this may be a input issiue if it has DVI and Svga and so on. check the menu to see if the monitor can be shifted to the other source. take the cable off and make sure no pins are loose or bent. then put cable back on. if you have another monitor try this cable on the other monitor and verify this cable is working. if it is may be the monitor. does the monitor work on different computer? if so check the back side of the computer, if desk top there may be another input for another VGA. some people overlook the port 2 where they can have dual screens. and only 1 is used for boot up info. try connecting to the other port if so. if the other port is DVI then hopefully you have a dual cord if not Ebay can get you a converter for 5-8 bucks. If you are luck enough to have a card with dual ports on the card generally only one port will work unitl you plug in the second monitor then reboot.

Is it attached to your computer via a VGA cable or DVI cable if it is vga then that is your problem

Dell C521 Where to connect monitor?


This means that you have an external video card (which is not outside the computer). This video card will be plugged into the motherboard. That message is saying that the port on the back of the computer that your monitor is plugged into is the wrong one. You need to look for another port on the back of the computer.

Here is a picture of a VGA port that you should use if you have a VGA cable to connect the monitor (Blue Ends).

Here is a picture of a DVI port that you should use if you have a DVI cable to connect the monitor (White Ends).

So depending on the cable and connections that are available on your computer and your monitor depends on what you have to use. I hope that wasn't too confusing. Let me know if you need more info.

Borrow a DVI cable from some friend and test it, just in case.
