Default DVI and D-sub input help

I just got a new computer with a blue-ray drive and an LCD monitor. My computer only has DVI connections and my monitor has both DVI and D-sub. I plugged the DVI cable into the two of them and it seemed to work fine until I began to watch a blue-ray movie. An error popped up and said I had to use the D-sub to watch the blue-ray. So I plugged the D-sub cable in and it works. But if I have both cables connected the only input that registers is the DVI, I have to unplug the DVI cable every time I want to watch a movie.

Question is: Can I fix the input problem some how and is there a way to have the DVI work for my blue-ray drive instead of using the D-sub?

More info:
I have the DVI plugged into the DVI and the D-sub into the D-sub. When the computer is started up before it gets to the login screen I can switch between the two inputs and it will respond, but ones I log in I can no longer switch between the two and only the DVI registers.

Can you go into the monitor's menu and select which connection to use?

that doesnt seem to make sense?

if youare watching a blu-ray then you need the DVI conenction should be the ova way around?

and infact it should be completely irrelivant what output you are using?
what are u using to play it?
