Subject: [gentoo-user] Changed monitor and even the BIOS screen doesn't show up.

1 Hi,
3 I am in the process of switching from the old rig to the new rig. While
4 doing the install I was using a Gateway EV700 monitor and it worked
5 fine. I unhooked the cables from my old rig and moved in the new rig.
6 The new monitor is a Gateway EV910. When I boot with the Gateway EV910
7 hooked up, it doesn't even come out of power saver mode or show the BIOS
8 screen that pops up when I first turn the puter on. It does work with
9 the one I used to install with, EV700. So, I know the card didn't mess
10 up in the switch.
12 Since it doesn't even work with the BIOS screen, this is not a OS
13 issue. Is there some setting I have to change to be able to change
14 monitors or am I just going nuts here? What is it about hooking up a
15 different monitor that makes it not work? Both monitors support the
16 same resolutions and I have switched these before with my old rig and
17 not a single problem.
19 What am I missing? Some new feature that the video card remembers what
20 monitor it is supposed to hook up to?
22 Thoughts? Fixes would be nice.
