Windows 7 Windows 7 isn't finding my monitor....


New Member
Hello guys,

I just finished installing Windows 7 and my monitor is plugged in but the light is on standby. It doesn't seem to recognize it. I works fine on Vista but I cannot seem to get it working. Any help or suggestions?

Some questions,

Give us some specs on your computer especially the monitor type and manufacturer.

Did you perform a "clean" install or an upgrade?

Are you dual-booting?

Since it's orange on startup, you see nothing at all, correct?

Have you checked all connection to make sure they are firmly seated?

I fixed it now. It just needed a restart although, I did that about 8 times with installing new software, I'm glad it's fixed now. Also, I see no update panel like Vista had, any thoughts on that?
