When I turned on the computer this morning the monitor (20'' Samsung LCD) displayed 'Check Signal Cable'. I checked the cable to make sure nothing was loose or anything, but it was intact. I tried to changed the VGA port between my graphics card and the motherboard but nothing would display. Does this mean the motherboard is fried? Thanks.
The only real way to determine which is the problem is to try swapping out the items. The cable is easy to try.
You don't have another computer, such as a laptop, that you can try the monitor with? Do you have a TV which has an input that the computer could use (newer HD sets)?
Samsung can say what they want, but that does not make it true :-). Just because the monitor works well enough to display that does not mean that the interface in the monitor is actually working. If the connector failed, it would look the same to the monitor.
