Also have you tried the monitor with another computer to rule out monitor problems? Have you reseated the video card?

Then I examined the pins on the Studio Display. That was the problem. Since I pugged it in several times, both the male and female plugs were screwed up. I carefully moved the pins on the plug and the receptacle back into place and everything is great now. I’m sure it wont last through to many repluggings, though.
