It sounds like your resolution settings are not correct on your PC.
The video signal could be a couple things, one of those is also related to resolution.
To get video to show on your screen properly, you need to have the PC set to right resolution and the monitor needs to be capable of the resolution, AND the video signal itself needs to be capable of being shown in the resolution you have set.
On my PC at home, I have an Elite PC (similar to yours, but not the same model) connected to a 47inch HD TV. I use digital satelite for TV (not HD satelite). I actually have to dumb down my resolution to watch it though, because the video signal is not capable of showing correctly at the higher resolution. To watch TV, I have to dumb down to 800x600, but if I want to watch a DVD I can use the proper HD resolution of 1920x1080 and then the DVDs show properly.
From looking on your monitor support manual, your monitor prefers this resolution: 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz
You can try setting your resolution to that and see how it performs, but keep the other things I mentioned in mind too.
