Ok, I brought it in to work tonight and hooked it up to a PC, same thing. I disconnected the main screen and replaced it with the Xenarc. Here is how the wires are set up. All FOUR (4) wires are connected. (1) is on it's own then splits into (2) (3) & (4).

(1) is connected to the Xenarc screen.
(2) is connected into the PC as the monitor cable (I'm assuming)
(3) is connected into the USB port into the PC
(4) Now where do I plug these suckers in?
(5) NOT SHOWN - Is the power cable plugged in into AC



So this is where I'm at. After about 10 seconds the screen reads POWER OFF. Sorry, the pics are taken by a camera phone in the dark.

OK... first change the resolution of your PC to 800 X 600 with a 65 or 75 mhz refresh rate.

Then powerdown everything. Connect only 1 and 2 to the computer and the xenarc screen. Power up the computer and the display. See if you get signal. If that doesn't work, then you might have to change the input manually using the buttons on the xenarc screen. I could have sworn mine was auto detect though. Good luck.
