if yes, then if your computer has a serial port, need a straight thru
if your pc has a usb, you need a usb to serial cable/adapter.
Do computers even have serial ports anymore? Hmm, I'll have to check and see if I have an adaptor at home in my box of spare PC parts.

It did detect it, but I got a message about needing a USB cable, although I'm not at home now, so I might have misunderstood the message.
When it does work, does it just adjust brightness and contrast, etc., so that you don't end up with your arm going numb from adjusting the monitor's controls?
