Hi everyone, I have a problem with this monitor that I just got today from my uncle. He left it in the garage for months and finally dug it out of there; thought it'd be nice to give it to me. My uncle and I was thinking that it was still in great condition and might still be working but when I brought it home, hooked it up to my system, nothing came on.

I was checking to see if the D-Sub cable was set into its spot and it was, along with the monitors power cable. Then I look in the front and I hear a low volume beep along with the blue power button blinking continuously. I don't exactly know what the problem is with the monitor but I guess this might have been the reason why my uncle bought another monitor and left this one to collect the dust.

If anyone know what is wrong with this, I'd love to find out and fix it. I don't want to see a beautiful monitor like this go to waste because I'm sure I can use it if I fixed what's wrong.

One more thing is that, when I hooked it up to the Samsung, then back to my Westinghouse, my resolution changed and had to reconfigure it with the nVidia Control Panel. It was weird because my resolution was set to 1400x850 and when I changed it back to 1440x900, it said it was out of range.

Anyways, hopefully someone can help me fix this if they have this monitor and have had the same exact problem as I'm having right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!

Have you check the manufacturers website? They very well might have a user manual that will tell you what that blinking light means. Though most likely if it doesn't turn on when you connect it and its not a connection or resolution problem it's outside of your ability to fix. Look up the monitors supported resolutions and set it to one of those before connecting it.
