Yes, it should be black screen, with backlight and blue osd led. You should hear the sound of windows device manager recognizing then installs the driver. It requires a dual link signal only DVI-D and DVI-I. DP, HDMI passive and adaptive adapters will not work. They state that in the sellers description.
PC graphic card must surport Dual link DVI.
Macbook, Laptops and On-Board graphics cards are also NOT compatible.
Please check display port of graphic card for compatibility with Monitor,
Because monitor be unable to support all display port of your PC.
