V-Box Problem

Hi,

I have vbox to connect up my PC monitor and PS2 and all worked well until I bought a new computer.
Now my monitor flashes on & off when connected and I can't get on the AV screen,
however when it is connected back to my old Pc it works fine

Any help would be appreciated

Hi

Sorry not really an answer for you, just a thought.

Could be somthing to do with your new graphics card in the new machine ? Have you tried swapping them between the old and new machine to see if that works. IF so then thats the problem. If not then its a monitor issue, are there any hidden features on the new monitor to turn it into AV mode that you havent found ?

Not quite the same problem as yours I know, but when I linked up a new digital box the other day to a TV we received an awful picture and it wasnt until I played around with the settings to enable " RGB " that the picture became stable.
So if you are using a SCART lead anywhere in the connection try searching for an RGB function on the monitor.??

Jungle,

it does seem to be the graphics card - the monitor is fine with the v-box.

Hi, Dawnyworld,

a V-Box allows you to connect a PC to a video, or games console
