My monitor's only output is DVI-I dual link, the graphics card is DVI-D dual link. The only cable I have that fits is DVI-D single link
Do I need dual link cable to work?
The monitor detects that it's connected but recieves no output from either the on board or external graphics card.

I swear I tried that and it just flicked between analogue and digital but I can't say say at what point in the whole saga of taking it all to pieces, that I tried it. It also doesn't beep, so between that and the lack of output I thought I'd got a duff one - their support did too, even had me clear the CMOS and wanted to order me a replacement
