    I did that, and still have the same problem on xp AND on a freshly installed Vista64.

    Anyone solved it? Anyone sent it back to Samsung and had it fixed? Please let us know how it went?

I had the same problem, so I switched the Auto Source feature to "Manual" and so far it's working fine for the past 2 days, if I run into the problem again I'll update this message.

On the side panel of your monitor, press the top button to access the menu, scroll down to the setup menu (by pressing the 3rd button down on the panel), press the 4th button down to enter the setup menu, scroll down to "Auto Source", use the 4th button to select, "Auto" & "Manual" are your choices.. press the 2nd button down to select "Manual" then the top button to exit the menu(s).

This monitor is set up to be able to do multi display with the software included. Utilizing both Digital and Analog signals. I'm not using this feature so I'm not sure how switching the Auto Source off will affect the performance of this feature.

While playing starcraft 2, the computer screen flashes random colors and then freezes. It also makes a strange smell.


Not sure about the smell as this may be an indicator of a failing monitor and should be used with caution.. Otherwise it sounds like when you start up the game, it is changing the resolution to a setting that your monitor can not support. Please check you monitors resolution settings and make sure they are set the same as in Option in your game.

My aurora which recently had its motherboard replaced has been shutting down seemingly at random. Sometimes when I'm watching hulu or playing a game.


It's probably heat-related -- start the Windows Task Manager, and minimize it, and then view HULU -- the CPU-meter probably will rise to 100% and stay there. The minimized Task Manager will be a small icon on the bottom-right of your monitor.

The "harder" the CPU works, the hotter it gets.

Be sure that the warm air leaving the back of your tower has some place to go -- don't back your tower directly into a wall, or put it tightly into a computer-desk.

It may be that your graphics card isn't quite man enough for the job. You'll have to check out the system requirements for these programmes. It may mean the purchase of a new graphics card with a higher rating.

In your monitor panel you'll find 4 buttons. Press the menu button and get into Magic Bright. There you can choose the one that best suits you. You can even set to Dynamic contract where the monitor adjusts the brightness according to the elements on the screen

I have a syncmaster t220/t220g monitor, I have had it for about three weeks. It just started to dim on varous screens (random) not sure why.


If the screen is getting dim to the point where you can't read it, it might be due an intermittent backlight. If this monitor is really only three weeks old, you might consider returning it to the store where you purchased it and exchange it.
