Hi guys, I'm also having a problem getting an image on my new Panny px77u from my computer.
I tried the following: Got a dvi/hdmi cable, connected to the monitor, booted up. Saw the bios boot up screen, saw the windows "welcome" screen and then nothing, black. No logon screen. The idiot that I am
, I forgot to change the cards resolution from 1680x1050. No problem. Went back and changed the res to 1024 x 768 @ 60Hz. Again, same thing. Bios screen, windows screen and then nohting. After that, when I tried using my lcd computer screen with the computer , I also got the same sequence and then the card just died.
So my question is, can the card be damaged on the first try because I had it set to a higher res than the plasma is able to accept? Should I be using some kind of software (powerstrip?) before I try this again? I tried reading on the site and searching but there is so much to go through, I don't have the time.
My panny can display 720p @ 60 Hz. Native res is 1024 x 768 The manual says that "pc use is not assumed" but I know others have done it.
Any help and suggestions are appreciated, I dont' want to fry another video card.
Edit, my new video card is the ATI x1650 pro 512 mb which from reading the site is capable of 720p.
