My System Specs


The plot

Did you get more than one cable from Monoprice? If you did, do they all have the same problem? If you only have one cable, then maybe it's just faulty. I had a faulty RCA cable from Monoprice once (no audio would transmit over it) and they quickly shipped me another, no questions asked. Didn't have to return the busted one either.

I suppose another possible alternative would be to use a DVI-to-HDMI cable instead. Perhaps that would solve the problem? For only $4.69 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 15ft 28AWG HDMI DVI Cable w / Ferrite Cores - Black | 28AWG HDMI-DVI Cables The pinout seems identical to the included DVI cables at least.

To add to your confusion, the included ASUS cables are DVI-D but single-link. The ones you bought are DVI-D dual-link. Thus the missing pins on the ASUS one. Although it still really shouldn't matter, but perhaps it's wired up incorrectly inside the monitor or is grounded out or something. I don't know...
