It sounds like something that might happen from using the wrong cable. But if your using the dvi-d that's a bit strange.

Make sure your drivers are completely up to date also.

I think you're supposed to use 2 cables at once, or that might be for Nvidia 3D/Surround.

DVI-D is a dual link DVI connection (2x the bandwidth of regular DVI)


You connections seem to be fine, but try a HDMI cable or another source of video output.

If your motherboard has onboard graphics try those.

It seems your best bet would be to narrow the problem down to either the graphics card or the monitor.


I've got a new monitor, I thought the monitor was broken, until I tried to plug my video card into another one, then I learned in the week of getting my new monitor, the video card has killed itself, see if that isn't the case for you.
