Did you press the button on the front to switch it from analog to digital?

I just reveived my Dell 1905FP 19" Monitor yesterday. The DVI cable that
came with it is the wrong one. It is i single link connection instead of
a dual link one. Anyone else receive the wrong cable with their Monitor.

What do you mean by Single link vs. Double link. I've never heard those
terms.

Your monitor doesn't support two links. This came up some time ago
on the Dell site concerning the 2001FP (20" 1600x1200) where someone was
griping about the single link cable and claiming much improved
performance with an (expensive) dual link cable. However the 2001FP only
supports a single link, as do most video cards, and it was all his
imagination!

The only monitor out there that needs the dual links is the Apple 30"
Cinema display.

See this and the following page showing connectors on Tom's Hardware Guide:

Now look at the 1905FP Documentation:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/r83546/E...

You see that pins 4,5,12,13,20, and 21 are not connected, therefor no
tual link support.

In the end the cable provided by Dell was the correct one. Because the
connections on the cable appeared to be different from what was on the
video card and monitor I assumed they were incompatible.
Anyway problem is now solved and monitor is running in Digital mode.
Thanks all for your help.
