Question about Samsung SyncMaster 244T 24" LCD Monitor
Recently installed Windows Vista. When I bring the system up from a low power mode (i.e. screen saver active, and move mouse) the LCD has red horizontal lines flashing all over the display. If I power off the monitor, wait 3 to 5 second and power back up lines are gone. Other than the red lines the monitor works excellent. I have the monitor driver installed, along with the latest Vista ATI X1900 series video card driver. Any ideas, have updated motherboard BIOS and chipset drivers as well. Thanks in advance.
Vertical lines are typical of LCD panels that have failed. I would certainly try the monitor on another machine; however, if the problem follows the monitor this is probably going to require some repair work. Unless you have the tools and skills to work on fairly delicate and potentially dangerous components this will be a job for an authorized repair shop. If you have any more questions let us know otherwise please don?t forget to rate this post.

Did it work properly using a VGA (analog) cable? If so, check your DVI (digital) cable against the pictures at the bottom of http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html.
You probably have one of the two at the left. Each has a different bandwidth, translating to a maximum resolution. The native resolution for your monitor might be marginal if you have a single-link DVI-D cable.
My 204B seems very picky about signal-level. It blinks when connected by DVI, even though it should be fine with a single-link cable, and complains about the settings even though the settings are optimal. Maybe yours is similar. I have ordered a dual-link cable and will try that myself.

Does the monitor remain on does it switch off?
Problem seems to be hardware related ie monitor itself is defective.Try connecting to another known working system.If monitor is defective it could be a power/inverter related issue or panel could be defective.
Please provide feedback and rate the solution.

They are referring to the video card in your COMPUTER, not the monitor. There is a supported list of cards at http://www.samsung.com/Products/Monitors/magictune/magicrotation_06s.htm

Try setting your color depth to 16 bit first then 1600 X 900 and try a reboot to see if it stays. Use only the windows display manager to do this, not the catalyst control. If the resolutions stays you can try setting it back to 32 bit and saving. The true max settings will appear in your windows display manager, and not always in third party display management software.
Trust that before you trust Catalyst or magictune.
Remember not to force the resolution above what windows considers safe, even if you know the monitor can handle it. Also bear in mind that Win7 is not fully ready for some things yet, even if Microsoft says it is.
I never trust a new Microsoft OS to be fully compatible with anything, no matter what the press statements report. So far this has kept me from destroying many components that may have otherwise become damaged or corrupted.
