  1. when you tried connecting your old PC to the monitor, did you use the same DVI cable? Could be a problem with your DVI cable. try testing it on another computer W/ the same cable.
  2. I don't see anything about you connecting the 8 pin EPS cable at thge upper left hand corner. remove the black cap from 4 of the pins and insert the 8 pin EPS cable. Do not put the 4 pin cable in.

    See page 2-38 of the manual. Look at Illustration at the socket labeled "A".

    Also if monitor has multiple inputs, acccess screen menu to make sure that proper on is selected.
