Yes, option 1, the machine is defective.
option 2, it has two gfx card, the one with the big (13w3) connector is 
per default settings the main framebuffer,
and the build in framebuffer, the one with the normal vga conenctor is 
disabled because of it.

solution if option 2: a) remove the addone framebuffer, but you don't 
want to do that for actual working, since its much betetr then the 
build in.
b) get a 13w3 to vga connector of some sort to connect it to a vga 
make sure the monitor can atleast handled 1152x900@76hz

Barbie - Prayers are like junkmail for Jesus

I have seen things you lusers would not believe.
I've seen Sun monitors on fire off the side of the multimedia lab.
I've seen NTU lights glitter in the dark near the Mail Gate.
All these things will be lost in time, like the root partition last 
Time to die.
