- with my old monitor (X) and the catleap being (Y)
I plugged X into an hdmi port, while Y was plugged into dvi-i, it was weird..I could see my wallpaper on X but still nothing on Y and I couldn't click anything on X either.
When I kept X in the hdmi port and plugged Y into dual dvi-d which is where it's suppose to go, my computer recognized it but again it says "unable to save display settings"
Pictures would be helpful - card plugs (do you have the switch on it?) Screen shots? I am at a loss since I don't know much about your vid card (which could be the culprit). Do you have access to another card or even computer to test the monitor on?
I just experienced something similar to yours. Here's what happened and what I did. If you have been following along, I just took apart my non-OC monitor to test the OC PCBs I just received today. OC success, cleared the buzz (for future reference in my case), and then dropped the non-OC PCBs back into the monitor (boo hoo, bye bye 100hz!)
I don't consider myself an expert here by any means, but am aware of how these things come apart and go back together. Having said that, once my non-OC monitor was together, and before I installed the bezel, VESA mount, etc., I wanted to confirm everything was ok. Initially, it wasn't. In my case I had three things that created the issue (one of which won't apply in your case.)
First - the monitor didn't show up at all in the nVidia control panel. Crap! Something is loose and I don't want to tear it apart again! So I unplugged power and DVI. Then plugged power, turned on monitor by pressing power button, then plugged in DVI (heard the Windows sound that something new is connected), but no joy in the control panel.
Second, I simply unplugged and then plugged in the DVI (monitor side) this time pressing pretty hard (some people have reported that their DVI plug barely connects due to the back's design). Success! nVidia control panel saw the monitor, I switch to native, and all is good (this is the third thing).
Could your issue be as simple as pushing the cable in a tad harder? No idea, but heck try it. I would still love for you to connect it to another computer with an aftermarket DVI cable to see what happens (no other monitors connected when you try it.)
