I had a similar problem. I resolve it by reinstalling the monitor using the drivers on the LG disc instead of plug and play drivers - I also installed the Forte Manager that came with it. I am using a DVI cable rather than a VGA. Have you tried a different cable.

The monitor only has a vga input . My laptop can connect to it via vga but not my pc.

Have you tried another vga cable? Do you have the installation disk for the monitor?

As the new PC can connect via HDMI, is it possible that there is a setting to select which output mode the graphics card uses? Obviously this is problematical as you'd have to connect to the TV via HDMI and then change the setting at which point you might lose the existing display, unless you can select multiple outputs.

On your pc did you look at the Power Saving Options? you may have the vga monitor set to power down
