Trying to connect new monitor Samsung S24B150BL.
I thought I had done it, but the computer and monitor didn't seem to be talking to each other! It just kept saying no signal.

So I have had to put the old monitor (which is my old TV), back, just to get online again. Trouble because I had to turn the computer off without being able to see the screen, so now online again in safe mode.

I hadn't installed the driver first, is that the problem?
Can I install the driver now?

Well this is most peculiar.

I'm now back online in normal mode, and the old TV/monitor is working perfectly again. It had lost all the red in the colours, and I thought it was going downhill, I used it as the monitor because the DVD stopped working, and I was given a bigger TV (old) by my sister.

Now I wish I hadn't bought the new monitor!

HTH. But I doubt it.

Compare red herring.

I look on the Internet and all webbery as a form of illusion and magic. Sorry if I was being enigmatic or obscure.

Alieoxon is that a code? Or a password? shockconfused

Hope that helps......I think.

Yes. That is right. smile

AlieOxon Tue 07-Jan-14 17:41:50

jingsit was supposed to be a link - from the smoke and mirrors one.

When it wasn't, I just thought I would be enigmatic too!

AlieOxon Tue 07-Jan-14 17:43:03

Well I didn't get much help, but I am back here again! END
