Solved!

2311X "Check Video Cable" but sees monitor

HP Recommended
2311x
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My 2311X monitor on my new HP was working fine until today.  It recognizes there is a DVI (i.e. says "Active" on bootup) but then goes to "Check Video Cable" and then to sleep.

I have tried - 

  • resetting the monitor (holding down Power 30-60 seconds while unplugged)
  • hooking the monitor up to a different computer (same result)
  • hooking the computer up via HDMI (does not detect HDMI)

Is it simply dead?  Any way to reset it?  I am worried it's the Windows updates but didn't have system restore on 😞

OK, was able to solve, thank God.

  1. Connected via a DVI to HDMI from old computer which got signal
  2. Did factory reset on the monitor
  3. Reconnected DVI to DVI to new machine, working now
