Hi guys
So i wanted to connect my monitor to my PC but the screen is very dark ( here is a picture ):

But when i connect the same monitor to my laptop it works fine ( here is the picture ):

Why is that?

Extra info:
- I'm using a DVI to VGA plug because my GPU doesn't have a VGA slot.
- The GPU works fine when i connect it to my LED
- GPU is amd radeon 7850 2 gb.

So basically I'd say it's your connector (dvi to VGA) is faulty if the screen isn't like that when your using your laptop I'd say that definitely the problem.
My advice if you bought I a few days ago go back and ask for a replacement. However before you do just try turning up the brightness on the screen that might be able to counteract your problem and assure that all plugs are properly plugged in.
