Hello, first time to post on this site and looking for some help.
I have a Proview 22 inch monitor which I use for both my computer and PS3. I used to have an HDMI switcher which I could use to easily switch between what my monitor displayed, the PS3 or my computer, but it stopped showing my computer after switching back from the PS3 so I thought my switcher was broken.
I then tried to just physically switching between the cords and found out the same thing occurred. When I start up my computer, I must have the DVI cable from my graphics card plugged into my monitor from the moment it starts or it will not display. If I start up my computer, unplug the DVI cable from the monitor, and then plug it back in, nothing shows and the light on my monitor shows that it does not see any signal.
Everything used to work perfectly with the HDMI switcher, could easily switch between displays with no loss of quality, but now it appears something has happened with my monitor or with my graphics card. I have the latest drivers from nVidia and for my monitor and have all sleep/hibernation, or anything of the sort, turned completely off.
I'm not a genius but I do know a little bit about computers (I built this one) and this problem has me completely stumped!
Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
