Maybe a quick check about what I have done can help.

Situation
- CDU is detected, downloaded the latest CDU software from texworkx
- the CDU is plugged on my second DVI output, with a DVI-VGA adaptor
- When I run the test module I can see the keys pressed, the lights, except the display, still blacks
- Windows 7 detects the display as generic non-pnp display
- I extended it on win 7, at 800x600. But I can't see it working, can't drag a window to it (i was expecting to behave like another monitor)
- I reconfigure it to use sim-avionics
- I change the SA CDU config to use full screen, at 800x600. Left is set to my main display width so it should render on the CDU display.
- Nothing, I can see that SA receives the key strokes but no display

After a while, I can see the screen saying NO-SYNC

what else should I try?

Can you get it to work off of a laptop or another PC?

PC hardware issues are very difficult to sort out with the numerous configurations out there with PC's and video cards etc.

Let's start with the basics.

Likely.. 99% of the time it has to do with Freq.
In the Display properties go into Advanced and you will see this option. You will likely need to change this setting. I would not panic.
Next time email and you have an answer in minutes!
No need for anyone to pull their hair out setting something up. Lots of folks at this end happy to jump in. Steve and I monitor email likely 12-14 hours a day. Smile

cool, thanks Peter for your assistance on skype, changing to 75hz and setting it back to 60hz fixed the problem.

I will check with Steve the "F" that is appearing on top of it
