preferences, and hopefully it will then work.
If not, try tilting the screen up or down a little bit (or move your

I went through a bit of frustration but it was all due to user error
on my part.
Is the DVI cable just dead?

can have the image reversed, so check to see if that is happening, as
it ruins the 3D effect.
Good luck. Hope it is working for you soon.
