You may need to switch the monitor to look at it's DVI input (though mine does it automatically).

Does your system have a DVI output?

What graphics card does your system have?

What's a dual-link lead? - I've only seen leads with a single connector at each end.

I recommend you not to get so tetchy about a bit of light-hearted banter.

thanks DieSse..i am not at that pc now, so il try to b as accurate as poss

to look at dvi input, meant to press both volume buttons and the input changes...i can do this, with vga still in or out, i change input but 'no signal' is the message

my graphics card has a dvi output, looks like 3 rows of pins with a cross at the end..the monitor seems to have same port

dual link lead- has 3 rows of pins and a metal spade which fit into the monitor and graphics cards not sure if this is the correct lead, but it fits nicely

graphics card - not sure right now - bought it with my dell dimension in 04

I seem to remember about that time having an issue with a Dell and DVI ports - and there was something in the Dell needed changing. Can't remeber what - I'll have a look around.

thanks, be greatly in general, a dvi monitor should just plug and play?

You could have a look here - I know it refers to Dell monitors - but I suppose it could equally apply to other makes.
