Hi all, I am attempting to connect my monitor to my laptop in order to use a dual monitor system.

I am using a HDMI to DVI cable, and my laptop detects the monitor correctly and suggest the optimum res. etc etc...

However the monitor only displays the floating "Self Testing" dialog.

-I have set the laptop to "extend the display" so I am not forcing the monitor to use a res it doesn't like.

-I have also got the monitor set to receive on the "Digital" input.

I have successfully connected my laptop to a LCD TV in the past with HDMI to HDMI, but with my Dell monitor I am not having any luck.

Hope you can offer some suggestions!

Thanks, Mitch
