I would say the video card is set to analog. Have you opened the ATI Control Panel and checked the preference settings?

I can't find that

Can you Help me?

BTW is there a big difference in display between Analog and Digital Signal?

Bear with me, because I have an nVidia card here so I have to try this from memory.

Right click anywhere in blank space on the desktop and one of the options should be CCC or Catalyst Control Center. That is where you will check for any settings that allow you to toggle between Analog and Digital.

Where exactly did you see that, on the windows 7 Screen Resolution page or in your monitors setup menus?
Did you go DVI to DVI, or did you use maybe us a DVI to VGA adapter?

My guess was that he is right clicking on the desktop and selecting "Screen Resolution". The top line shows the monitor model and connection type.

I was just wondering if it was in the "Display" or "Resolution" section on that screen. My I-Inc LCDs have a VGA and DVI input. One monitor is connected to the VGA on my GT220, and the other one is connected to the DVI output. All I see is 1.AG191 and 2.AG191 for Display and 1280 x 1024 (recommended) for Resolution. There is no mention of analog or digital there for either display. I have to actually look at the back of the monitor to tell which one is DVI (digital) and which on is using VGA (analog). The DVI connectors on my monitors are DVI-D, digital only, so there is no way to send an analog signal into the DVI port. My guess is windows 7 is just reading the monitor ID data stored in the monitor and displaying it in the "Display" section. I don't think it means that the monitor is actually using an analog signal, just that it can.

If I recall correctly, that is your monitor, not the connection type, that is analog.

I could be wrong, however.
