I just purchased a Westinghouse 19" LCD flat panel monitor. It has both a DVI-D and a VGA input.

I purchased the following cable for it:

I am, however, unable to get a signal. I am using an eVGA 7600GT superclocked video card with a VGA and a DVI-I port.

I have already tried the following:

1. Hooked up the cable properly; shut down the PC, hooked up the cable, turned on monitor, turned on PC - no signal detected. Reboot - no signal detected.
2. Hooked up VGA cable and tried to switch to digital signal then shut down monitor. However, before I could get that far, the monitor automatically switched back to the analog signal.
3. Hooked up both the VGA and DVI cables and attempted to switch over to digital signal after starting Windows in analog. This caused my system to freeze. I ended up having to clear CMOS, then reinstall video driver to stop Windows from freeezing after booting to the desktop.

I am currently using the most up to date non-beta ForceWare driver. It has been suggested by another that I revert to a driver from about a year ago but if I have to use that old of a driver to get DVI to work, it doesn't seem worth it.

Any further ideas on what could be the cause of/ solution for this problem?

Does your monitor have an input button?

No input button, but in the monitor's menu there is an option to switch from analog to digital. However, as I said in my original post, when I switch over to digital, the screen goes blank for a second or two then automatically switches back to analog.

Have you tried hot-swapping i.e. unplugging VGA and plugging in DVI without powering the monitor off?
