Monitor situation update!!!! 1/18/13
Thank you so much everyone, for all of your responses! I placed an order for the HP 2511x 25-Inch LED Monitor – Black from Amazon on the 16th, and it arrived today! When I plugged it into my desktop, the monitor didn’t display any pictures using the DVI cable, so I tried it with the VGA cable (with an adapter) it worked! I wondered if my DVI ports were broken somehow, so I swapped out my current graphics card (NVidia GTX 570) with my old graphics card (NVidia GTX 260) and my monitor worked again!!!! I should have done this two days ago, prior to ordering a new monitor, but I was lazy and didn’t want to open the tower (it’s a lil’ intimidating!).
Anyway…. so, it’s not Samsung’s fault after all! I <3 you again Samsung. I really like the HP 2511x 25″ monitor too, it’s so SHINY, and gorgeous. If I don’t get a response from EVGA about a replacement, I’ll have to send this monitor back, and buy a new graphics card instead.
That’s all. I’m back, with my old (and slightly less fabulous) graphics card.
I need a new monitor! Today I can’t get the display to recognize my source, it switches between analog/digital and now the power source light is blinking. I’m typing this post on my iPad, so I’ll keep it short!
Please suggest a new monitor between $200-$300US that has a 24″ display or bigger, is digital (my pc doesn’t have an analog port), and the picture needs to be nice and sharp!
Also, don’t suggest Samsung, cos I hate them with a passion now!!!!!! My old display was a 24″ Samsung, and I liked it before it died on me!
If you can provide an Amazon link, even better.
