Decided to upgrade my video card. I have a Dell Dimension 4600 with an integrated card, and the 1901FP monitor. Upgraded to a SAPPHIRE RADEON 9600 256M 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X. Plugged into the AGP slot, swapped out the blue analog cable for the white digital cable, booted up, and the monitor never got past some testing message. Something about an analog signal test. A multi colored square continued to float across the monitor.
Shut everything down, and went back to the blue analog cable. Booted up and all went normally. The PC recognizes the card in device manager. But why can't I run it in digital mode? Thank you.

I am guessing here...but is there a setting in the monitors menu to switch between DVI and normal analog?
