Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Samsung SyncMaster 931BF 19" Monitor. Screen was working fine. But now after raising the resolution past 1280X1024, the screen wouldn't display anything. I tried it on my older monitor, a CRT. It worked fine, at all resolutions. When I connected back to the Samsung, I saw that the screen was displaying but it was just VERY dark and dim. I tried pushing the button for brightness, and I saw a faint box with the words "Brightness not Available." The Auto Adjustment Feature Button works but it doesn't solve the darkness problem. I've tried connecting through VGA (Analog) and Digital (DVI). None work on the Samsung. The older CRT model only has an analog output and it worked. Help please. THanks in advance. Help me please. Thanks in advance.

This is because your screen is not compatible with any resoultion past 1280 x 1024. Look at your screen's specifications here: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200602/20060210090838125_BN59-00521A-01Eng.pdf (Page 76 listed as Maximum resolution)

If you want to go past that, you must purchase and/or use a different monitor. Just be sure to look at the Maximum Resolutions BEFORE you purchase a new monitor!

Samsung syncmaster 913v gives message ' not optimum mode"


The 913V has a native resolution of 1280x1024. If you use a higher resolution than that, you'll get slightly blurry text. If you use a lower resolution, then images will be slightly choppy around the edges.

To get rid of the message, set your resolution to 1280x1024.

In Windows XP, you do this by right-clicking on the background (desktop) and selecting "Properties" to bring up the display properties.
Select the tab marked "Settings" and look for a "Screen Resolution" slider. Move that slider to the right until it displays "1280x1024" and hit "OK"

Hooked Samsung SyncMaster 931BF monitor to laptop and the letters on the screen are choppy. I can play with the settings on the monitor but can't get the letters to line up straight.


This looks like a driver/resolution problem. Which laptop are you using? New laptops shouldn't give you any hassles, but older models don't always have the graphics cards to support all monitor sizes.

Make sure your monitor driver is installed on the laptop and that you have the latest graphics drivers installed for your laptop.

You can download the screen driver here: http://driverzone.com/device.php?id=55741

Then check that the resolution for your monitor is set correctly on your laptop under display properties. The native resolution for the screen is 1280x1024.

Hope this helps,

Icons are blurry


Did it happen all of a sudden? In other words, was it OK before?

Try going to screen preferences, settings, and look at the resolution slider - is it set to the native resolution of your monitor (1280x1024)? If not, correct and accept changes.

If the resolution is set OK, then multiple other things might have happened, but not knowing a bit more about the situation it's hard to advise anything...

No 1440X900 Resolution Option in Display Settings


Windoze is not detecting the monitor correctly. Right click the desktop as you had before to get to the display settings. Click the "advanced" button at the lower right, on the next window, click the "Monitor" tab, and remove the check from the box from "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display". That should add to the settings the 1400 X 900 resolution you are looking for.

No picture on screen


Try to use the resolution same or lower than 1280x1024 60htz. This is a known hardware fault for Samsung LCD analog monitors.

Image not displaying properly


Before assuming it's the monitor, try it on another display card.

It is possible that there is a problem in the configuration of the display card, or a defect in the display card.

Is there a computer service place, or a monitor sevice center near to where you live. You can then take the monitor to have it properly checked for you.

Samsung SyncMaster 931B


I tried both suggestions above and neither worked. 1) Hitting the monitor buttons as stated only got me a "digital" message and then the monitor went black as usual. Never got to any menu options. 2) Going into Safe Mode and changing the monitor settings or downloading/installing the correct driver didn't stick once you went back to the normal startup.

I didn't have another monitor handy to swap out so I had to be a little more creative. The only solution that worked for me is re-booting (F8 during startup) into the mode "Enable VGA Mode". This allowed me to go into the normal desktop with a screen resolution of 800x600. I went online, found the driver, downloaded it to the desktop. Deleted the video driver (Device Manager), installed the downloaded version, rebooted and....no problems.
I have Windows XP. Hope I've helped someone today. :)
