Check the monitor's manual for the external button settings & change the appropriate setting accordingly.

E.g. you may be connecting with a VGA (analogue) cable but have the DVI (digital) setting enabled at the moment - OR, vice versa. Pressing the correct button usually corrects this.

Get back if that doesn't work. G

If that doesn't work, reconnect your previous monitor & lower the resolution to 800*600.

Then connect the new monitor & reboot. G
