External device not displaying

I have just setup my new All in One MSI Windtop - Nvidia Ion graphics etc - brilliant - except i have attached my Samsung Syncmaster 933 monitor - have followed all the instructions and it is detected but the Samsung not displaying anything - power light flashing! I have restarted with device attached and powered down, nothing - i can see it is detected on Win 7 - have extended display etc and can drag windows across but no display on Samsung - any ideas????

i have found the resolution setting but it makes no difference - i have tried them all! I also think its weird that the device is not picked up as a Samsung monitor as it is on my other Win 7 pc? I have tried to add it as a device but it remains a generic PnP monitor?
Am getting more and more mad with this All in One - i cant install Adobe CS3 either - nor my drivers for my HP office jet.....
