I recently got given an Apple Cinema 23" display. I have a PC running Windows 7. I have an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card. The ACD has an adapter to an HDMI connector and my PC has an HDMI port. It doesn't work, though. The ACD's ON/OFF button flashes two shorts and one long. Any ideas?

I'm using an apple LED ACD (old as mud at this point, and I found two things that helped.
First you need to a copy of Apple's boot camp drivers and then install.
WindowsSupport\BootCamp\Drivers\Apple\AppleDisplayInstaller64.exe

I also found the little app called Brightness Controller to give me access to the speakers and of course the ability to control the brightness as well

Thanks for that. I think that would work except I have a 32-bit version of Windows and this driver needs 64-bit to work.
