Hi,

Ive just picked up a Dell flatscreen and tried to plug it into my Compaq PC but it wont show a picture. Are they compatible?

Are you using the blue D-type connector?

Do you see anything at all on the monitor? Do you see the white writing on a black screen when it boots? Do you see the Compaq logo when it boots?
