Specs: Windows XP
I have a LCD monitor ModelNo. 900P, ProductNo. PS-976KQ, SerialNo. F7JQ520302312 (Manufacture Date February 2005). I would like to connect this monitor to new PC, but it doesn't work. It doesn't show the correct picture (only blue stripes apear or a half picture is shown, but it is also distorted). When I connect this monitor to annother PC or to my laptop it works fine. I have also tried connecting another monitor to my new PC and it also works OK. I have Windows XP Professional 2002 with service pack 1 and 2. Can you please help me.

Not only do you need the correct resolution but you also need the correct refresh rate...most likely it should be 60Hz. Do you have the documentation for the monitor? If you do, find out what the proper settings should be, hook up your old monitor (probably a CRT?) & configure the resolution & refresh rate to the specs of the LCD. Then shutdown, connect the LCD, restart & see what happens.

If that doesn't do the trick, try updating your video drivers.

BTW, I'm curious why you haven't installed service pack 3?

"I would like to connect this monitor to new PC, but it doesn't work."

Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.
The specific model of a brand name system is shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site.
The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

The model is often also displayed on a logo (graphical) screen early in the boot, but it's often not as specific as the specific model number.

For Dell computers, they have a Service Tag number - the specific model can be determined by using that on their site, or can often be determined there automatically by you downloading some software. The Service Tag number should be on a label on the outside of the case, probably on the bottom on a laptop, on the back on a desktop, and is often also shown in the bios Setup.

Even if the settings in whatever the operating system is on the computer are wrong for the monitor, you should always have normal video while booting the computer before the operating system starts to load.

I noticed when I was looking at new and recent desktop mboards earlier this year that some mboards that have onboard video have a type of DVI port that does NOT support using a standard DVI to VGA adapter with it to connect a VGA video cable connection to a monitor.
