Recently obtained a Samsung P2770 monitor but when I connect it to the 'monitor connection' of my CPU there is no display.

My PC is a Dell Inspiron Desktop 545MT, 64 bit, video adapter: Intel® G31/G33 Express Chipset Family (Intel® GMA 3100) .... info from Dev Mgr.

The monitor gets power (at least power and 'menu'/'2 screen adjusts'/'chg'/'auto' lights are on) and the screen is a lighter black (light grey but not white) and a small box in upper left displays 'HDMI' then 'ANALOG' then 'DIGITAL' - alternating ... but I can't get anything else.

Do I need a different video card? What's there came installed.

Have you actually tried changing it to Analog assuming that your using VGA? You can usually change it on the monitors settings.

Other monitors - YES - have an ACER P221 that works fine.

Interested in the 27" because can only 'see' using one eye (Apraxia of Eyelid closing in both eyes - left eye closed all the time - plus double vision if force left eyelid open) .

How to change to analog when NO MENU is displayed?

Monitor has only DVI/IN and HDMI/IN connections for input. The power input and 2 'audio' outputs.

Totally embarrassed

Problem was fixed by installing a new driver for the monitor.

In my defense - previous monitors did not have to have a different driver ... but this is a 'TFT' monitor - different than the one I had.

Bottom-line - this thread/topic is resolved ... thank y'all for the attention/suggestions.

Glad you got it figured out, that was my next suggestion was making sure your video cards drivers were compatible with the monitor. Hope you enjoy it :thumbup2:
