Hi Cored17,

Is the monitor actually working now?
Are you trying to set up dual screens?

Does your monitor have a button on it (underneath or on the side maybe) that allows you to switch between Analog and Digital.

When you press this button you would normally get a box on the screen saying Digital or Analog depending what you have just switched it too.

thanks for the replies. No dual monitors. and it is working great looks amazing.. there is a input button and when i push it i get a black analog screen because there is nothing connected to that port. Just curious about why it says analog and not digital.
