Question about Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I'm trying to select the DVI source input on the monitor front panel but it will only move thru the source inputs 3, 4, and 5 which are s-video, composite, and component. The inputs 1 are 2 are d-sub and dvi. I would like to use DVI. I'm trying to do this in order to get the 1900 by 1200 resolution offered by this monitor. It worked in the past and then suddenly I am having problems with this. Thank you. Kerry
Video card in the monitor sounds to have failed. It dosn't take alot to short them out these days.
Try the analogue port (make sure everything is off when you connect it up) and then see if you get to access it from the menu.
Sometimes these monitors are a little fussy about selecting things that it didn't detect as valid when it powered up.
By powering up I mean from when you plugged power into it, not just turning it on with the power button.
It would need to be unplugged from the wall for about 5 mins to drain out the power that is stored in the main filter capacitor.
