Monitor no longer recognized
OS: Red Hat 9
System: 2 CPU workstation machine
My workstation setup has been pretty stable for the last couple of years, but today when I came in, my monitor was no longer responding. I usually turn the monitor off when I leave for the night and the next morning I turn the monitor on, usually having to move the mouse to "wake up" the system. This morning, nothing happened.
I first went to another computer and ping'ed my machine, and it was responsive, and after ssh-ing into it, I couldn't tell that anything was wrong. I then swapped my monitor for another and I had the following results:
-- new monitor on my machine --
I rebooted the machine (remotely), heard all the usual sounds, saw the start-up on the new monitor. So far, so good. When the reboot was complete, I got a message on the monitor that says "Out of Range" and that's it. None of the monitor buttons work, and I cannot figure out how to interface with the machine, except for remotely.
- old monitor on another machine--
Curious about what happened to my monitor, I plugged it into another machine, and it works fine! In fact, I am using it now. I don't get why it stopped working on my machine.
Any suggetions on how to get either of the monitors working with my machine would be great!
