Question about Samsung SyncMaster 171 P (Silver) 17" LCD Monitor
I have a new iMac and am trying to set up my SyncMaster 171P as a secondary monitor. I've connected the 171P to the iMac using a mini DVI to DVI adapter, the iMac recognizes the 171P but the screen on my 171P remains black - with a floating window reading "No Connection...Check Signal Cable". The 171P monitor works when I connect it to my PC using the regular monitor connection cable (i.e. not the mini DVI) but at this point in my configuration I don't have this plugged into anything.
What am I doing wrong?
Any help would be appreciated.

it shwos a compability issue with ur pc and monitor .somehow your sync signals are drop and not going to monitor at proper level...so u could replace your video data cable with new one.
or use a short length cable.it may solve your problem.

sounds like it might be a graphics card. if u have an old graphics or vidio card, open the case and remove your card then install the old one. if it works now youll know your card is bad. If u have an old video card and an open pci slot install it and move the monitor cable to the old video card plugin. if it works now same thing your graphics card is bad. to know which card to remove just remember which one the monitor is plugged into.

had the same issue, called up customer care of samsung and they suggested me to change the cable to D-15 10 series. I was getting the comp o/p on TV but with the "Check Signal Cable" messg with the old VGA cable where some pin is not grounded used for computer to monitor connectivity.
