Ok. Here's the deal.
Today I got my brand new computer in the mailbox (well, kinda.
). Everything was installed and it all seemed to be working out just fine, until I hit the power button and realized my monitor had issues with connecting to the computer itself. Now, this is my monitor: http://www.viewsonic.com/products/desktopd...vx724/index.htm
And this is the graphics card I'm using: http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=349495
When I had my old computer, it was connected to the screen through a D-Sub cable. However, this new one only has two DVI-accesspoints. My monitor has both a D-Sub and a DVI-accesspoint, but I only have a D-sub cable. I found a transformer or an adapter in the box the new computer arrived with, and connected this to my computer, then connected the D-Sub cable to this transformer/adapter, and lastly into my screen, hoping this would work. .. nope. Black screen. Power is on, the power button is flashing yellow, so the power on the monitor itself is on. It just can't locate my computer. Anyone got any ideas about what might be wrong?
I'm pondering whether I should try to get myself a DVI cable instead of using an adapter, but it would suck wasting like $100 on something that won't help me at all. :x So, accepting all ideas and everything.
Thanks in advance!
