My dad brought this monitor home with him today. its not a new one either i think. I haven't had the chance to ask him where he got it.
I took it upstairs plugged in the power cable and connected the monitor in the other slot on my gpu.

bam, it worked. I used windows dekstop settings to expand my desktop.
Then I went to eat and had to go somewhere. took about 40/50 minutes total.
I get back and i see the monitor stopped showing display

and it had a message saying:
"Not optimum mode, recommended mode 1280x1024 60Hz"

But i had the resolution set at 1280 x 1024 & 60hz on both screen with the desktop properties. it still didnt' work.
I unplugged and replugged the cabals, tried switching them from the other monitor. all without luck..

So i took it back downstairs and tried it on the other comp, no luck either.

I tried searching arround, but there seem to be alot of threads but none actually showing ways how to solve it, ect.

So i posted this thread in hope that someone could clear out why this happend and if there's any possible way to get it fixed, other then having a company fixing it.

I have no idea how old this monitor is, nor any idea how my dad managed to get it. If he's back i'll ask and update this thread about it.

Hopefully i can get this thing to work, that way i could give this 17" to my bro and use the 19" one myself.
