Windows 7: Switching A Monitor Between VGA & DVI-D Digital ?

Switching A Monitor Between VGA & DVI-D Digital ?

Hello,

As I posted in the monitors forum, I am having problems with a
new LG W2053 TQ monitor. Being used with a new HP Pavillion Elite PC.
Great picture, but just can't get any of the OSD or configuration screens to appear.
It has those touch sensitive buttons on the front. Have tried everything, but they never appear on the screen no matter how I press them (quickly, tapped, held for several seconds, etc.)
Other than that, the monitor is great.

Have it hooked up with a DVI-D cable for a digital connection, rather than VGA.

Was wondering if perhaps to get these OSD screens to appear, the monitor needs, and uses somehow, the analog VGA cable for this.
So, thought I'd give it a try.

Now have both cables in place.

But, I'm reasonably sure that the PC is still using the DVI-D digital cable for its output to the PC.

Looked in all (I think all) the monitor related screens in W7 but can't find where it is.

a. Is there an option in W7, somewhere, to tell Windows7 which to use, and to switch the output spigots between VGA and DVI-D going to the monitor ?

b. Or, any thoughts as to why the config OSD screens won't appear would also be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

From OP: Model No., As Requested

Hello,

Thank you all for the help.
Really appreciate it.

Really don't want to return the Monitor, as the picture is so great, and seems to work fine, and talk to the new W7 PC just fine.

Can't help but feel that it's something real "dumb," that I'm doing, or not doing.

The Model for the new PC is: Pavillion Elite e9250t

The new monitor is an LG W2053TQ (20")

Thanks again,
Nice of you folks to take the time and trouble to help me out.
Bob

Hello again,

Thanks so much for help.
Am in my 70's now, so please bear with me a bit.
Not too sharp with this "stuff" anymore, I guess.

Not too sure what you are asking me to do.

Might you, please, be a bit more specific ?

Where do you want me to go (and look for) ?

What is it that I am assuming you want me to download ?
If so, where do I put it on PC ?

What will, or should, this do ?

Thanks again,
Bob
