Bah, now to get hunting for a spare cable. (And THIS is why I said cable that came with the monitor = bad)
So you're plugging in just the new monitor and nothing else? It's not in "extended display" mode by chance? Make sure it's set as "show only on this display" and is the only monitor plugged in to troubleshoot. Also, did you have any custom monitor settings in your catalyst control center perhaps? Like a different refresh rate setting somewhere. Just trying to think of anything software-related before blaming the cable or the monitor. Make sure the DVI cable are securely plugged into the monitor and your computer.
This monoprice cable is good, I got it and using it now, although there really was no need because both of my Korean ones worked just fine (one came with my Achieva and another with a Crossover):
(there are longer versions, if needed). The cable is very very thick and inflexible, but not a big problem, as you'd just let it run between the stand and the back of the monitor.
Your cable could be fine too for that matter. I think the cases of them being bad are quite rare.Edited by ElevenEleven - 6/18/12 at 2:24pm
