How to change monitor resolution?

While I was away a syncmaster 2493hm was installed on my workstation. The resolution was set at 1024 x 768. I have changed my display characteristics to 1920 x 1200 now I have to "pan" to see the different areas of my desktop. How do I get the "whole" desktop view?

    The monitor documentation states that the optimum resolution is 1920x1200 which is what I would like to use.

Hi,
Probably there are another available solutions but I think you should respect the monitor native maximun recomended resolution taking into consideration to change (if it is posible) between 16 or 32 bit of deep.
I have the same monitor as you have.
Hope, temporaly it help.

Samsung monitor 2493HM wont power up I plugged it it and the blue light came on for about 5 seconds then went out and I havent been able to get it going again.


Hello,

The Samsung 2493HM monitor are known to have an issue with the power supply. When the power supply fails you get the 'no power' or 'slow to show picture' problems like you are having. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be just like new again. This is what the power supply board looks like:

I want to run a software which requires a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 but my Samsung SyncMaster 740nw supports up to 1280 x 700 screen resolution. Is there anything that I can do? Please guide.


Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution in Control Panel - Display - Settings and moving the slider on Screen resolution?
Normally a monitor such as Samsung LCD would be able to display a higher resolution.
If you cannot adjust the Screen resolution in Display - Settings then it may be that the correct video driver was not installed or is corrupted.
To check if the video diver is OK, go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager and click on Display adapter. Check that your display adapter is OK and working. If you see a yellow ? against the video adapter or a standard VGA adapter was installed then you need to re-install the video driver for your model graphics card.

My Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM Monitor has trouble starting. When my monitor has been off for a while and I restart it. It makes a little beeping sound and the little light on the right bottom of the screen...


The Samsung 2493HM monitors have an issue with power supply failure. When the board starts failing can be slow to show a picture, have no power at all or have a way or flashing picture. Your monitor sounds like it falls in the slow start category. The power supply board can be easily repaired and the monitor will be just as good as new. Here is a link to a free repair guide that will provide a step by step instructions showing you how to disassemble the unit, check and repair the power board.

Brightness automatically going low when the brightness is at 100


hello, please make sure the magicbrite option is not set to "dynamic contrast" as this will change the contrast levels by itself, change the settings by pressing the down arrow touch key on the monitor, change it to any other setting, game mode is blinding on my one (when the monitor works, but thats another story!!!) good luck with samsung customer care centre 0870SAMSUNG (uk)

Image blur


You need to check that display resolution in your Display properties is set to the native resolution for wide monitor typically 1440><900 for the size you mention.
Blurred image is due to using 4 : 3 resolution setting of 1024 >< 768 on a 16 : 9 wide monitor.
