Exclamation Monitor Problems

A friend has given me a Compaq V500 monitor to try and get it running for her to no avail so far. I've tried downloading the drivers for it an d plugging it in to my own pc. All i'm getting is the lcd light coming on and a slight change in the screen colour a s windows starts up. I've done a factory reset on it and the brightness and contrast but all i can get is to play with the monitor settings i cant get windows to appear on the screen at all. Any help greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Monitor Problems

If this is a dual display thing. Then make sure you have it connected to the primary display. And not the secondary one.

What color is the light?
