hello, first time posting. i normally dont need to post as i can usually find a google solution, but i am absolutely lost with this one.
i have a samsung laptop, asus vh202t-p, windows 7 32bit 7600, nvidia 8400m g. previously i used the monitor without problems on xp, then i left my dorm during winter break and i installed 7 during that time. i come back and i cannot use the monitor anymore.
when i connect and try to use extended view, the monitor will constantly flash on/off, sometimes theres a box with "adjusting settings" message, sometimes just the wallpaper and the resolution is off. the power light stays blue during this, and not orange like when it is idle without a connection. it works fine with my ps3 though. latest nvidia driver 195.62. device manager says generic non-pnp. asus doesnt provide any monitor drivers.
so far i have tried: using osd menu to change display, nvidia control panel to change, laptop function key to change, changing refresh rates, safe mode with video same results. maybe theres more but i cant remember now.
i have no other monitor to try, nor does any of my friends/roommates. the only other problem i could think of was the cable being damaged, but its not like i flailed it around and bashed it or anything.
oh and when i try duplicate display, the monior says no vga connected and goes idle..
