I have bought a new computer with no OS installed.

When I connect the dell monitor to the pc via VGA, the LED quickly changes colour from green to orange and says it is in power save mode.

It can't be the graphics card (I don't think), because the monitor said the same thing with another computer, but for some reason when I plugged the VGA into my laptop, it shows up fine on the monitor.

I have the Windows 7 install disc I just cannot install it as I cannot see what I am doing.

Thanks in advance.

if you're getting similar results on varying computers, then I would start by checking the BIOS settings. seems to me that some computers are recognizing it and others are not. Compare it with working computers BIOS video settings.
