NEC PA271W Monitor- Trouble hooking up to PC
Jul 25, 2012

Ugggg, it's so frustrating when a nice new monitor arrives from B&H and I'm having trouble hooking it up to my PC. This monitor has a DVI cable and a Display Port. The back of my Lenovo does not have either connection. My Lenovo is about 1 1/2 yrs. old. I never thought to check the connections because my computer isn't that old. I called NEC and they told me to buy a VGA to DVI adapter. I run to Radio Shack, buy the adapter and hook it up....I'm getting a box that says, VIDEO INPUT...NO SIGNAL. Any advice from a nice person who feels sorry for someone who doesn't know what they are doing?! I would greatly appreciate any help.
