Give us a more accurate description and we could help you.


Is the physical connection not possible?

Does it not receive a signal?

Does it not display anything?

Does soem other monitor work?

Does the monitor work on some other computer?

Does it work on another cable?

All of the above?

Just so you know, not all DVI connectors are the same.

You need to be more specific. Do you mean there's no signal on the monitor after powering on your computer?

What kind of video card is it? Do you have the power cables plugged into the video card (if it needs them). Is your video card installed correctly in the correct slot?
